Priests who survived the atomic bomb in Japan


Yesterday on EWTN, I saw Jason Evert sharing with a group of young people about the power of praying the rosary. He told them that during World War II when the atomic bomb was dropped in Japan, four missionary priests were praying the rosary at the time of the explosion just 8 houses away from where the bomb hit. They not only survived but were uninjured and had no radiation illness as confirmed by both Japanese and American physicians. Can you substantiate this incredible miracle for me before I share it with others? Thanks so much.
