Overview

        Thirteen years before the bloody 1994 genocide that swept across Rwanda and left more than a million people dead, the Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ appeared to eight young people in the remote village of Kibeho. Through these visionaries, Mary and Jesus warned of the looming holocaust, which (they assured) could be averted if Rwandans opened their hearts to God and embraced His love.

Mary also sent messages to government and church leaders to instruct them how to end the ethnic hatred simmering in their country. She warned them that Rwanda would become “a river of blood”—a land of unspeakable carnage—if the hatred of the people was not quickly quelled by love. Some leaders listened, but very few believed. The prophetic and apocalyptic warnings tragically came true during 100 horrifying days of savage bloodletting and mass murder.  
        Much like what happened at similar sites such as Fátima and Lourdes, the messengers of Kibeho were at first mocked and disbelieved. But as miracle after miracle occurred in the tiny village, tens of thousands of Rwandans journeyed to Kibeho to behold the apparitions. After the genocide, and two decades of rigorous investigation, Our Lady of Kibeho became the first and only Vatican-approved Marian (related to the Virgin Mary) site in all of Africa. But the story still remained largely unknown.
        Now, however, Immaculée Ilibagiza has changed all that. She has made many pilgrimages to Kibeho, both before and after the holocaust, has personally witnessed true miracles, and has spoken with a number of the visionaries themselves. What she has discovered will deeply touch your heart!

    Immacuelee's remarkable rendition of Our Lady's Appariation

    Immacuelee is a catholic who is expected to accept Our Lady without question. This book however, is not about questioning belief and faith. It is simply and clearly rendition of a story and personal experiences. The story is very convincing about what happened over several years at Kibeho, our Lady's revelations that came to pass and how the average should see the miracles of God. It is a remarkable book that I would recommend to all readers. I believe it in all its entirety.

    more from this reviewer

    Immaculee ILibagiza has explained this beautiful true story in a fullness that I have been searching for. Hearing about these appearances of the Virgin Mary in the 1990's, I was very interested. It is thrilling and life-changing to read this book.

    I love Immaculee ILibagiza and all of her accounts. Thanks again Immaculee for helping us learn what this life is all about from Our Lord and Our Lady. Blessings always.
    Sincerely,
    Marga
