So said, after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor during World War II, the United States entered the war on December 8, 1941. It was the feast of the Immaculate Conception. It was the turning point of the war otherwise the Allies might have lost.
Italy surrendered to the Allies on September 8, 1943, the feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
World War II ended on August 15, 1945 with the unconditional surrender of Japan. It was the feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Japan also signed a formal pact in San Francisco called the Second World War Peace Treaty. It was on September 8, 1951, the feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
The signing in Washington of the Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces Treaty by Mikhail Gorbachev and Ronald Reagan, abolishing medium range missiles in Europe took place on December 8, 1987, the feast of the Immaculate Conception.
There is another coincidence! The Communist Party suddenly and dramatically collapsed in Russia on August 22, 1991. God was no longer dead. It was on the feast of the Queenship of Mary!
