There is still much tension. The country is scarred by the genocide. There is peace on the surface, but the grudges and the hatred are still there. The country is controlled by soldiers with an iron fist who prevent fighting and violence, but the divisions have grown. They say here that there are no longer just Tutsi and Hutu, but the big people and the little people, the rich and the poor, the fat and the thin. Those who provoked the genocide are certainly not repentant, and the justice meted out by the courts is not enough. The trials are still going on, but no one wants to testify, since they are afraid of being killed. In this situation, the Church works for true reconciliation, but it’s a hard road. The Church is present among the people, to testify that forgiveness and peace will never come from the courts, but from Something greater. Only the encounter with a new experience, which already lives reconciliation, can give the strength to generate forgiveness and thus peace. The Church is careful not to take sides, though inevitably the presence of the Christians is colored by the tensions they live in. There are important educational and social initiatives, but more important than these is the presence, the human reality in which the Church is present. The people recognize this, the people are attached to the Church and love it, wherever Christians are really present in concrete situations.
