December 7


Memorial of Saint Ambrose, Bishop and Doctor of the Church

  • Today we remember St. Ambrose who once wrote "Nothing graces the Christian soul so much as mercy—mercy as shown chiefly towards the poor."---St. Ambrose, On the Duties of Clergy, 1.11.38 wreat h is tossed into the waters of Pearl Harbor in memory of the WWII attack there on the U.S.
  • We also remember today those who perished on December 7, 1941 as a result of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor that hastened the United States' entry into World War II.  2,403 Americans lost their lives on "a date which will live in infamy," as President Franklin D. Roosevelt declared on the following day.  Take time today to remember in prayer the victims of all wars, our veterans and those currently serving in the military.

  • Archbishop Timothy P. Broglio of the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA, reflects on the sacrifices of a Catholic chaplain and others during the attack on Pearl Harbor in this video.
