This spring: 25 years since the Rwandan Genocide.
Between April 7 and July 18, 1994, nearly 800,000 Rwandans died as Hutu tribal militants killed members of the Tutsi tribe. Immaculee Ilibagiza has inspired audiences worldwide with her tale of survival in the massacre. Hidden in a small bathroom with seven other women in a pastor’s house, she eventually turned to the Rosary and, “That night I prayed with a clear conscience and a clean heart. For the first time since I entered the bathroom, I slept in peace.” Prayer later helped her forgive her attackers.
