In Left to Tell, Immaculee Ilibagiza tells her story of the Rwandan genocide. In 1981, many years prior to the Rwandan events( to which the world turned a blind eye,) Our Lady made them known through a series of apparitions (approved by the Church) to seven children, Alphonse, Anathalie, Marie Claire, Agnes, Stephanie and Vestine and Emanuel, a young pagan, known as ‘Sagastasha’ at the time of the revelations.
In this present day, many of the people who where imprisioned after the genocide are being released and returning home. The time for healing is upon the village people of Rwanda. If this suffering country is to go forward with one heart, a healed and merciful heart, much prayer and forgiveness is needed. Only prayer can win this spiritual battle. A worthy Lenten prayer intention!
