ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY – November 1, The United States detonates the world’s first thermonuclear weapon, the hydrogen bomb, on Eniwetok atoll in the Pacific. The test gave the United States a short-lived advantage in the nuclear arms race with the Soviet Union. Following the successful Soviet detonation of an atomic device in September 1949, the United States accelerated its program to develop the next stage in atomic weaponry, a thermonuclear bomb.

PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU – May the God of Discernment be with you, leading you to the moment of recognition and embrace of God’s desire for you.  May you bring to that moment the authenticity of your person, openness to God’s Spirit working in you, and an awareness of the ways in which you have been gifted. May you stand with open hands before the God of Discernment who waits to bless you. –Maxine Shonk, OP
