Letter of gratitude,

 

During the apparitions of Blessed Virgin Mary to the three girls in Kibeho (28.11.1981-28.11.1989), she often emphasized that her message was addressed to the whole world.

 

I am pleased, that this message has also reached to polish people and it has flourished in the hearts of them. I would like to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation to Father Andrzej Laskosz CSsR, the rector of Blessed Virgin Mary, the Star of New Evangelization and St. John Paul II. Sanctuary in Torun in Poland, for taking the initiative and inviting believers to pray the Rosary of the seven sorrows of the Virgin Mary each Tuesday and Friday of Lent.

 

The meditation upon sorrows of the Virgin Mary is closely linked to the Mystery of Christ’s cross. It also reveals our individual role in the Salvation plan of God through the acceptance of our own sufferings.

 

This truth has been revealed to the contemporary world through the message of Mother of Word of Kibeho, who has addressed us also those words:

 

“Meditate the Rosary of sorrows of the Virgin Mary"

“Endure sufferings in order to help Jesus to save the world"

“Accept your sufferings with faith and joy"

“Nobody will enter into heaven without sufferings"

“The child of Mary accepts its sufferings"

 

May the number of wonderful initiatives, similar to the one of Blessed Virgin Mary, the Star of New Evangelization and St. John Paul II. Sanctuary in Torun, increase in all the sanctuaries dedicated to the Virgin Mary. May her last message to the world, recognized by the Church, be accepted and put in practice for the happiness of the human kind.

Rector of Sanctuary of Our Lady of Kibeho

The joy of a pilgrim!

 

Namanya Mike, a boy of 13 years old was palsy stricken of his right leg for three years. He used wooden stick to support himself as he moves in a limping condition. It is like that we saw him during his first days in the Shrine of Our Lady of Kibeho when he came with other pilgrims from Kabale diocese, Uganda.

 

On 20/03/2016, at 4:00 pm (Palm Sunday), the boy heard an inner voice from his heart telling him to abandon the stick he used when he walks. He abandoned the stick for a while and after he went direct in the apparition’s chapel for prayers. From the apparition’s chapel to the shrine yard, he moved in a difficult way. It is during the following night that they passed again in the shrine he felt that the pain of his leg is finished. And he left the stick for completely and started walking freely. On 21st, Monday, we saw him walking without problem. His heart was full of joy and thanksgiving to Merciful Jesus and Virgin Mary Mother of the Word.

October 18th 2015:

National pilgrimage of Legio Mary at Kibeho (twenty thousand persons).

 

A Rwandese couple

 

During the visit of Pope Saint John Paul II in Rwanda in September 1990; he had wished that one day, there may be found the Blessed and Saints among the Christian couples in Rwanda.

After 25 years of his visit, the Church in Rwanda begins the first process towards the beatification and canonization of a couple of Christians in this country, namely Cyprien Rugamba and Daphrose Mukansanga. Indeed, on 18th September 2015, the opening ceremonies for the cause of their beatification and canonization took place in Saint-Michel Cathedral in Kigali in Rwanda. On this occasion an ad hoc Diocesan tribunal for the cause was put in place. The ceremonies began with a solemn Mass presided over by the Archbishop of Kigali, Monsignor Thaddeus Ntihinyurwa. The other Catholic bishops of Rwanda concelebrated together with many priests of the Archdiocese of Kigali in the presence of a big gathering of Christians including the members of the Community of Emmanuel. During this Mass, the Archbishop prayed asking the Lord Jesus Christ to welcome home the Rwandans who believed in him, to show a sign that Cyprian and Daphrose were welcomed to heaven and finally give the Catholic Church in Rwanda the foresight in this endeavour.

After reading the decree launching the investigation on the lives of the concerned, Archbishop Thaddeus Ntihinyurwa established the tribunal through the appointment of its members and their respective tasks.

Now Cyprien Rugamba and Daphrose Mukansanga are the Servants of God.

In their prayers, Christians can invoke them asking for their intercession to God. They can also ask God for a sign manifesting their presence with Him.

Are these first Servants of God in Rwanda possibly the fruits of the apparitions of the Mother of the Word at Kibeho?!

Fourth Sunday of Easter - Year B

Installation of the relics of Saint John Paul II

Kibeho, April 25th, 2015

 

Homily delivered by His Excellency Monsignor Luciano Russo,

Apostolic Nuncio in Rwanda.

 

Reverend Fr. Zbigniew Pawlowski, Rector of the National Shrine of Our Lady of Kibeho,

Reverend Fr. Romuald, Regional Superior of the Pallottin Fathers

Reverend Fr. Martin and Fr. Gonzales, the General House in Rome,

Reverend priests - concelebrants,

Dear Religious,

Dear Christians and pilgrims here present.

 

It is with great joy that i preside over this solemn Eucharistic celebration on the occasion of the installation of the relics of St. Pope John Paul II at the Shrine of Our Lady of Kibeho.

I thank and salute in a special way Rev. Father Rector of the Shrine of Our Lady of Kibeho and the Bishop of Gikongoro, for inviting me to this great spiritual initiative on the eve of the anniversary of the canonization St. Pope John Paul II.

The presence of the relics of a saint in this church is surely a cause for joy and spiritual graces, but when it is of Saint John Paul II, this acquires even a greater value and a more spiritual meaning, given that it is now 25 years since Pope John Paul II visited Rwanda.

Today, with the official inauguration of his relics in our midst, it is as if Pope John Paul II has returned for the second time in this country. We will have other occasions to highlight the Pope's visit 25 years ago during other celebrations and events, but the presence of his relics here at Kibeho is a clear sign of the love and devotion that this Saint had for Mary, Mother of God and Mother of the Word.

The fact, therefore, of having his relics here, assures us of his protection, when we think of his courage and his testimony as a genuine follower of Jesus Christ. It is an encouragement for us all as the Church, to follow him on the path of holiness and self-dedication. He left no stone unturned in order to proclaim the Good News to all especially in his journeys to all the corners of the world.

As you know, we are still in the Easter season and the readings of this 4th Sunday help us to meditate on the mystery of the Resurrection of Christ, the foundation of our faith and our Christian hope: Jesus of Nazareth, the Crucified, rose from the dead and appeared to Simon.

The gospel presents to us the figure of Jesus, the Good Shepherd, the true and only Shepherd of our souls. It is He who presents himself, who reveals himself and for his disciples to understand fully what he means, he uses the words of everyday language, and of his time: the language of the Pastor.

Jesus wishes to emphasize that he is not any shepherd. He is the Good Shepherd! He is the one who gives his life for his sheep. He is the cornerstone that the builders rejected but which became the cornerstone, as we read in the Acts of the Apostles in the first reading.

The text of the Scripture narrates the testimony of Saint Peter before the rulers and elders in Jerusalem, following the healing of the lame. Pierre said very frankly that "Jesus is the stone that was rejected [...] but that has become the cornerstone"; and he adds on: "Without him, there is no salvation. And his name, given to men, is the only one which can save us "(vv. 11-12).

Saint Peter says clearly that no one can save us except Jesus Christ. And he said, "There is no other name under heaven given to men by whom it is asserted that we are saved." Jesus is the bridge that links God to men; He is the only mediator who brings us to the Father; He is the foundation of our faith.

Nowadays it is not easy to distinguish the voice of the Lord, the voice of the Good Shepherd who calls his sheep and leads them on safe routes to the truth. Sometimes we run the risk of confusing the voice of the Lord, or lose it, because of different noises of the world. Often it happens to us Christians to follow other voices, other than of Christ, which deceive us and lead us to an illusory and short-lived happiness. So it is a duty for all of us who are called to live in the world without being of the world, to distinguish the voice of the true shepherd from the one of false shepherds.

In the second reading St. John tells us of the fruit of Christ's Passover; and this fruit is that through Him we have become children of God. Listening to John we wonder at this gift: not only are we called children of God, but "we really are" (v. 1). Indeed, the condition of being children of God is the fruit of the saving work of Jesus through his incarnation, his death and resurrection and the gift of the Holy Spirit. He introduced man to a new relationship with God, the same relationship that He has with the Father. This is why the risen Jesus said: "I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and you’re God" (Jn 20, 17). It is a relationship already fully present, but not yet fully manifested: it will be so at the end, when - God willing - we shall see his face as it is (cf. v. 2).

According to the tradition, this is the Vocations’ Sunday. We pray for vocations to the priesthood and religious life. In his message for this year, Pope Francis invites us to meditate on the theme of the vocation which leads to holiness. "Vocation and holiness with the touch of Beauty" (Gaudium Evangilii, 167; 264).

Vocation and holiness strongly belong together. When we speak of vocation and holiness, it affects the life of every person, because we are all called to holiness.

Vocations and holiness: this is an educational itinerary that begins with the experience of beauty, thanks to having been touched by Beauty ... touched by God himself.

With you, it's beautiful! This refers to a relationship, a way that "attracts" our look and transforms it into our look of faith able to recognize the beauty of the Lord, which continues today to call, to saw seeds of vocation in abundance!

Let us pay attention to the Pope's intentions, and with all the Catholic Church, let us pray for good and holy vocations. Let us ask the Lord to give us wise pastors who know how to lead his flock, which is the Church. We pray for holly priests and religious that they may know how to answer with joy and courage the Lord's call, taking the example of Saint Pope John Paul II whose relics will be installed today in this Marian Sanctuary.

 

Nyagasani Yezu n’abane namwe! - The Lord be with you!

Kibeho: The 33rd Anniversary of the Marian Apparitions to Nathalie Mukamazimpaka

 

On Monday 12 January 2015, about 500 pilgrims from all over the world gathered at Kibeho to celebrate the 33rd anniversary of the apparitions of the Virgin Mary to Nathalie Mukamazimpaka. She is the only visionary who, following the request of the Mother of God, still lives at Kibeho. She is involving in the day to day activities of the Sanctuary.

 

The ceremonies began at 10:00 am with the recitation of the Rosary on the joyful mysteries, praying for all the families around the world. At the same time, the pilgrims received the sacrament of reconciliation.

 

The Eucharistic celebration which crowned the occasion began at 11:00 am presided over by Bishop Kizito Bahujimihigo, Bishop Emeritus of Kibungo. His homily was centred on the apparitions of the Mother of God to Nathalie. He reminded those present and all following on Radio Maria Rwanda that the apparitions of the Virgin Mary to an individual person is a concern to us all. Hence, we are all invited to renew our relationship with the Mother of the Word. The message that Mother Mary left to us at Kibeho is ever valid. The Bishop emphasized the emergence of the 22nd November 1982, when Nathalie received the mission to go outside at night and pray with a warning that she would meet a terrifying animal. For Bishop Kizito, this mission represents a perpetual struggle against the devil that every Christian undergoes in his or her earthly pilgrimage.

 

So, please let us continue to support Nathalie through our prayers, so that she may remain committed to the mission entrusted to her during the apparitions of the Mother of the Word at Kibeho.
