Are the apparitions of Our Lady of Kibeho recognized by the Church?
Yes, since 2001. Kibeho is a town in Rwanda, a place where the Virgin Mary appeared, to talk about devastating events that happened in Africa and beyond.
The apparitions in Kibeho were officially recognized as true in 2001. The Virgin Mary revealed herself, presenting herself as the Mother of the Word , with the aim of calling all of us back to prayer and conversion, before it is too late.
Prophecies – The messages of the Mother of the Word and of Jesus
The Mother of the Word asked for the recitation of the Crown of the 7 sorrows and to find the way back to understand the sacrifice of Christ. But even Jesus had spoken to Kibeho: “Tell the people: Stop taking different paths. You have to choose the only way: penance and detachment from the things of the world. The behavior of young people and their ideas are in contrast with what God expects from them. They should not use their body as a tool of pleasure. Instead of serving God, I am at the service of money. Pray to my Mother, to show you the right path that leads to God “.
The Mother of the Word emphasized the importance of the preparation of the human race for the new coming of the Lord, the last and definitive one that will bring with it the last judgment. On September 15, 1982, Our Lady told the visionaries of Kibeho : “Why do some not believe that I came to convert the world? I am asking them to correct themselves but they refuse to do so. “
A few days earlier, on September 8, 1982, she addressed the prelates: “Priests and religious do not take care enough of those people who are sick, physically and morally. If they have freely promised to remain faithful to their vow of chastity, they must faithfully observe it. Priests and religious were also warned that they were too attached to the world and to riches “.
