A Powerful Spiritual Gem
on September 16, 2008
Following up her incredible,life-changing book, LEFT TO TELL, this volume reveals Immaculee's intense, profound and deeply moving spiritual journey after the horrific Rwandan genocide that she survived by God's providence. It shows the spiritual fruit of those 91 days of constant prayer and suffering she endured in that tiny bathroom packed like sardines with 7 other women.
She emerged from those 91 days of terror as a spiritually transformed woman, who was about to encounter unspeakable grief at the knowledge of the carnage that happened in her country, and to her own family. But with her deep faith and prayer life, we see in this book how she was able to abandon herself to Divine Providence, and draw ever closer to the God whose love she came to deeply experience and trust in, even in the face of such horrors.
This book is filled with many inspiring stories of how Immaculee experienced God's mercy and strength to face so many new challenges and difficulties, as well as stirring stories of others who also were survivors of the Rwandan holocaust. It is reminiscent of other spiritual classics by people who have gone through incredible times of darkness and suffering (like Walter Ciszek's powerful HE LEADETH ME)and how they learned to draw close to God in that crucible and be spiritually transformed by a deep spirit of faith, prayer and charity that countless others benefit from when they read or hear the stories of these heroic souls.
