I just saw an episode of Facing the Truth, with Archbishop Desmond Tutu chairing a meeting between the Milltown Cemetary killer Michael Stone, and the family of a Catholic man he helped to murder. In the closing scenes of the programme, the family shook his hand and forgave his crime, and he declared them to be “better people” than he was. Truly amazing.
I have read and highly recommend Tutu’s memoirs of the South African Truth and Reconcilliation Commisison, No Future Without Forgiveness. Read my review.
