Q & A with Sr. Meena Barwa, Kandhamal violence survivor

Sr. Meena Barwa has forgiven the men who attacked her nearly eight years ago. The gang rape was a horrifying experience, but the aftermath was more painful, she says. Barwa, 34, is a member of the Handmaids of Mary, an indigenous congregation of Odisha, an eastern Indian state. She was among the victims of the worst anti-Christian violence in India's modern history, which began Aug. 24, 2008.
