Sometimes it can be easier for you to understand Fr. Ubald when you see him on Video.
This podcast was recorded on July 1, 2020.
I was waiting for the right time to post it here. Fr. Ubald came to my heart a few times during the 1st week of January. I found out on Jan 8 that he passed away on Jan 7. I only spoke to him this one time, but I miss him and feel the sadness that he left us.
Fr. Ubald lived through the Rwandan Genocide.
80 members of his family and 45,000 members of his congregation were killed.
He came back to the country to lead retreats and equip people in forgiveness and reconciliation. I am inspired by him, his presence and his story.
The Center for the Secret of Peace
Forgiveness Makes You Free
Throughout the book, Fr. Ubald teaches about five spiritual keys that draw us to Christ, the only source of lasting peace:
- be thankful and have faith
- choose to forgive
- denounce evil
- decide to live for Jesus
- claim the blessing
Each chapter combines Fr. Ubald’s story with reflection questions that guide readers along their own path of healing: from fear to faith, from shame to freedom, from isolation to reconciliation, from resentment to mercy, and from conflict to peace.
