5. Kibeho (Rwanda), 1981-1986:
The Virgin Mary appears to three teens, Alphonsine Mumereke, Nathalie Ukamazimpaka and Marie-Claire Mukangango, shortly before the Rwanda genocide. She asks for fasting, unceasing prayer, and conversion. Other young people claimed to have received messages from the Virgin Mary at Kibeho, but only the apparitions to Alphonsine, Nathalie, and Marie-Claire have been approved by the local ordinary. At the shrine of Kibeho, Mary is venerated as Our Lady of Sorrows.
