(LifeSiteNews) — Tonight’s episode of The John-Henry Westen Show is a moving one.

I speak with Jacinta Rigi, who at 17 years old accidentally killed a motorcyclist she couldn’t see at a dark intersection in rural Idaho.

In the wake of the accident she had to make the biggest leap of faith in her life: accept forgiveness and come to Christ, or descend into despair.

Jacinta’s powerful testimony reveals how sin and death are not the final word because of Christ’s love for us. God gave her the grace to share her story, which reveals the unbounded love and redemption at the heart of LifeSite’s mission to build a culture of life.

In the face of unspeakable grief, hopelessness, and guilt, a mother’s love — the mother of the slain son — brought Jacinta the healing she needed to continue building a culture of life.

Listen to tonight’s heart-rending episode below or watch the interview above.

The John-Henry Westen Show is available by video on the show’s YouTube channel and right here on my LifeSite blog.
