Our Lady of Kibeho - Bonus Post

I found the website for one of the seers of Kibeho. She is actively trying to spread devotion to Our Lady's Sorrows specifially via Our Lady's Chaplet or Rosary of Seven Sorrows. The following is an excerpt - I urge each of you to read this and take the message of Our Lady to heart. I have been telling you for some time the great and abundant spiritual benefits for the soul who is devoted to Mary's Sorrows:

The Rosary of the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin dates back to the Middle Ages but was lost to time and disappeared in history.
The rosary recalls the major Seven Sorrows the Blessed Mother suffered through with love and compassion during the life, trials, and agonizing death of her son Jesus Christ.
The Seven Sorrows Rosary is very special to the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin, and she wants all of us to say it as often as possible. During the Holy Mother’s apparitions to Marie-Claire in Kibeho, she assigned the young visionary with a mission to reintroduce the Rosary of The Seven Sorrows to the world. Before her death during the Rwandan genocide, Marie-Claire travelled widely teaching the rosary to thousands of people, who have taught it to thousands of others. This special rosary has been gaining new international popularity since the Church approved the Marian apparitions in Kibeho in 2001. It is my hope even more people will learn about this amazing rosary.
The following is a description of, and directions for saying, The Seven Sorrows Rosary as the Virgin Mother herself taught it to Marie-Claire in Kibeho. It may be prayed aloud, or in silent contemplation, alone or with others, but the key is for the prayers, reflections, and meditations always to come from the depths of your heart.
During her visitations to Kibeho, the Virgin revealed that The Seven Sorrows Rosary possessed immense spiritual power for those who said it sincerely. She promised that when prayed with an open and repentant heart, the rosary would win us the Lord’s forgiveness for our sins and free our souls from guilt and remorse. She also promised that overtime the rosary would develop within us a deep understating of why we sin, and knowledge would give us he wisdom and strength to change or remove any internal flaws, weaknesses of character, or personality faults causing unhappiness and keeping us from enjoying the joyous life God intended for us to live.
The Rosary of The Seven Sorrows contains all the power you need to change your life for the better, to obtain peace and happiness, to realize your true potential, fulfill all your dreams, and grown closer to God’s light. It is a glorious gift to us from Our Lady of Kibeho; learn how to say it and say it often. I speak from experience when I promise that you will never regret leaning this wonderful rosary and that you will soon lose track of the countless blessing praying with The Seven Sorrows Rosary will bring into your life.

I tried commenting earlier but something went wrong (probably on my end). Great post. I first learned about Kibeho in the early 1990s when a friend gave me a copy of the film "Marian Apparitions of the 20th Century."

Please pray for us in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and throughout New England. A significant event, a major ice storm, left one million people without power...I was one of them. It was very unpleasant.

I believe God is warning the people of the United States - and in this case the people of New England in particular - to amend their lives and to put our priorities in the right place: God first (He is a jealous God and rightfully demands the first place in our lives), our neighbor second, AND OURSELVES....LAST.

Do you know of a good place where I can purchase the rosary of the 7 sorrows?

Many thanks and I wish you the Peace of Christ

Paul - I was in Boston 2 years ago for a weekend business trip and went to mass there. I got the distinct impression this area is a Catholic wasteland - although an otherwise beautiful city with a rich heritage and culture. I offer my prayers for New England through the intercession of Mary Most Sorrowful.

Anonymous: You can google the Chaplet of our lady's sorrows, servite rosary or seven sorrows rosary - unfortunately this prayer is known by many names. Or go here:

They make a beautiful one. God bless you.

I've just recently learned about Kibeho and was wondering if you could give me the website of the seer that you mentioned. Thank you!
