Resumo

MASANGO, M. Reconciliation: A gift from God. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2008, vol.29, n.3, pp. 697-707. ISSN 1609-9982.

This article analyses the work of reconciliation based on Prof P Meiring, especially his work with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The article takes seriously the theological aspect of reconciliation that leads to peace. This ritual is helpful in making sure that victims hear the stories of how their beloved were killed in Apartheid times. The TRC thus created a space where victims of injustices could have a privilege of meeting with perpetrators, in a way of reconciliation. It finally looks at the suffering experienced by them and the response by government.
