J.M.J. Please let us not forget to pray for those who are in harm's way especially as participants in various millitary exercises. The following is footage from a Holy Mass being offered on a ship headed for Iwo Jima. The date is Tuesday, February 12, 1945--the Feast of the Seven Founders of the Order of Servants of the Blessed Virgin Mary. That year, Ash Wednesday was the next day--February 13, 1945. The bloody Battle of Iwo Jima that claimed almost 26,000 Japanese and American lives began on Tuesday, February 19, 1945, one week after this Holy Mass had been offered.
