(Lk.2:34-35)
 A SWORD SHALL PIERCE
 Behold this child is set for the fall, and for the resurrection of many in Israel, and for a sign which shall be contradicted; and thy own soul a sword shall pierce, that, out of many hearts, thoughts may be revealed."
(rosary was scripture inspired) 
KIBEHO?
(BEFORE THE MASSACRE AT RWANDA)
Since Vatican II, we watched a slow but steady growth in interest for the Rosary of the 7 Sorrows of Mary.  But we did not understand why recently there has been such quickening of intererst in our 7 Sorrows medals and rosaries. So did a little research, praying for guidance along the way.  The one word that came to mind the most was KIBEHO. What was KIBEHO? We looked it  up and quickly ordered the book , OUR LADY OF KIBEHO (by Immaculee Ilibagiza) and began to understand, especially as the world news began to unfold around us, the why. To learn more about why this message for the world would be given by Our Lady in distant RWANDA AFRICA, please follow the link below:

~ KIBEHO / RWANDA ~
OUR LADY OF KIBEHO
(Immaculee Ilibagiza, author)
+
Kibeho is an approved (by the church) apparition of our Lady (from 1981 to 89). It would be followed by the Genocide of Rwanda in 1994. Marie Claire would lose her life in this genocide.
+
MARIE-CLAIRE
RECEIVING  HER MISSION FROM
MARY TO TEACH  THE ROSARY OF THE
 SEVEN SORROWS TO THE WORLD
+
On May 31, 1982, Our Lady said to Marie Claire: 
  “What I ask of you is repentance. If you recite this chaplet, while meditating on it, you will then have the strength to repent. Today, many people do not know any more how to ask forgiveness. They nail again the Son of God on the Cross. So I wanted to come and recall it to you, especially here in Rwanda, for here I have still found humble people, who are not attached to wealth nor money”. 
(rosary was scripture inspired) 
+
OUR LADY OF KIBEHO:
Mary speaks to the world from the heart of Africa
+
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. (from the inside dust cover of the book, 'Our Lady of Kibeho' (by Immaculee Ilibagiza)

WE LOVE HEARING FROM YOU

... the breath of God ...
I took a peek at you web site and the [new] Divine Mercy series is beautiful.  I can't comprehend all these marvelous designs coming from the hands of 5 grandmas alone - surely the Holy Spirit - the breath of God is the author behind these wonderful designs. -  Fr Joe (PA)

...  strong in my heart ...
How wonderful to make rosaries, I as a child would kneel with my Grandma on the hard wood floors (like Olive oyl knees!) until we finished saying the rosary nightly. You bring back memories that are strong in my heart. thanks - a faithful customer  - who now has blood red knees - still.....thanks so much.  (NM)
