My recent trip to Rwanda has filled me with such joy and peace! The local children there taught me a song which ended with the word, “gusenga.” I was puzzled by the meaning of this word until I visited the children’s genocide memorial. The word, “gusenga” means “pray” in Kirwanda, the language of the people of Rwanda. At the memorial, I found a picture of a young boy smiling down on me.
This was the last word spoken by him before his death during the terrible genocide that took place in Rwanda in 1994.
The message of faith coming from this small African country is profound. Twenty thousand people made their way to honor our Blessed Mother on Her feast. Many traveled for nearly a week on foot to reach this holy site of the Vatican approved apparition of our Lady of Kibeho. For more information on this beautiful Marian site, click here.
