In this article, Senior Fellow Rev. Drew Christiansen, S.J., considers how the seventy-fifth anniversary of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings can mark a fresh start for the movement to abolish nuclear weapons. Christiansen reflects on Pope Francis' teachings on nuclear disarmament and argues the pontiff sets a high standard for moral maturity. Pope Francis asks each of us what we should do to make the world a safer place from nuclear weapons, according to Christiansen. The article, published in America, calls for Japan and the United States to work together toward full nuclear disarmament, in light of their tragic nuclear past.
