Fr. Ubald Rugirangoga

In 1994 the world looked on in disbelief and horror as Rwanda erupted in violent bloodshed. All across the landlocked African country, militant Hutus rose up to exterminate the Tutsi population, including women and young children. One hundred days later, a million bodies littered fields, streets, and even churches.

Fr. Ubald Rugirangoga is a survivor of the Rwandan genocide while losing more than 80 of his family members and 45,000 of his parishioners in the killings. In the aftermath, Fr. Ubald experienced a renewed sense of purpose as a minister of reconciliation and a healing evangelist in his homeland and around the world. He offers 5 spiritual principles that can help those traumatized by the past to experience healing and peace in Christ.
