Kwibuka2On April 7th Rwanda commemorates the victims of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi. It is an annual event during which all Rwandans gather to honor members of their families and relatives who perished during the Genocide.

For Jesuits in Rwanda-Burundi Region, that day does not pass unnoticed. Beyond joining the entire nation in mourning for its victims, Jesuits in Rwanda-Burundi mourn also for the victims from their own fraternity.

At the centre Christus memorial site, Jesuit Fathers Chrysologue Mahame, Patrick Gahizi, and Innocent Rutagambwa are laid to rest together with 14 other persons. They are among first victims who succumbed in early Genocide killings in the morning of April 7th 1994. Each year, Jesuits in Kigali gather to offer prayers and pay homage at their tomb.

Saint Ignatius LoyolaA Reflective Review of the Past Year: 

St. Ignatius Loyola's Examen is an opportunity for peaceful daily reflective prayer. It invites us to find the movement of God in our life. The following is a reflective review of the past year. Before you begin, identify some major markers of your year, such as the semester calendar or events [eg, Commencement], to orient yourself to the time period.

The Examen is simply a set of introspective prompts for you to follow or adapt to your own character and spirit. Begin with a pause and a slow, deep breath or two; become aware that you are in the presence of the Holy.
