Our Lady of Kibeho began appearing to several Rwandan girls and women in 1981 at a time of increasing tension between two ethnic groups in the region: the Tutsis and the Hutus. The visions occurred at Kibeho College, a secondary school for girls, and foretold the devastating genocide that would sweep the nation in 1994. As many as one million people were slaughtered during the conflict. Mary’s message from the heart of Africa echoes today as one of love, repentance and conversion.
