Black and white or color.

Health or sickness and death.

Atomic bombs or paper cranes.

This Saturday, Aug. 6, is the 60th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima, Japan, by the Allied Forces. Three days later, a second bomb was dropped on Nagasaki.

Aug. 6 is also the feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord.

The stark contrast between the glory of divinity revealed in Jesus and the horror of war revealed in Hiroshima is the point of the exhibit, "Transfiguration" on display through Aug. 5, at Godschalx Gallery on the St. Norbert College campus. "Transfiguration" is the brainchild of the college's Peace and Justice Center.

"The cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were transfigured on this feast of our Lord," said Sr. Sally Ann Brickner, OSF, director of the Center. "We can transform our world from a culture of war to a culture of peace. That's why I called the exhibit, Transfiguration."   Full story ...
