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. 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. For years, countless onlookers watched as the Mother and Son of God spoke through the eight seers about God's love, sending messages that they insisted were meant not only for Rwandans, but for the entire world, to hear. 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. After the genocide, and two decades of rigorous investigation, Our Lady of Kibeho became the first and only Vatican-approved Marian (that is, related to the Virgin Mary) site in all of Africa. But the story still remains largely unknown. Now, Immaculée Ilibagiza plans to change all that. She made many pilgrimages to Kibeho both before and after the holocaust,personally witnessed true miracles, and spoke with a number of the visionaries themselves. What she's discovered will deeply touch your heart.

This book is great! Very powerful and yet simple. Mother Mary gives hope and instruction on the life of the spirit, through the people of Kibeho, for all people. Immaculee gives her eye-witness account in such innocence and truth of an event that seems to pass through history unnoticed by the world, but those that do notice will be greatly enriched.

I enjoyed reading of Our Lady of Kibeho. It gives an internal glimpse of life in Rwanda prior to the genocide, and the religion of the people, though their Catholicity was not able to bridge the cultural gaps between the Hutu and Tutsi people. The information about the apparition of Our Lady there is truly inspiring.

I absolutely loved this book. I had never heard of Kibeho or the apparitions of the BVM in this small and so special country. Thank you Immaculee for writing this book and all your other ones.
