God is continuing to send His prophets and His true prophetic messages to guide us to Jesus, especially in distressing times. God wants us to receive His prophets and to receive a prophet’s reward.
- Jesus’s disciples will have the opportunity down through the ages of the Church to welcome prophets that He is sending.
- The message from the apparition from Kibeho was a message of conversion of keeping the faith and praying without hypocrisy.
- The devil is always working to divide and cause hatred.
- After 21 years of investigating, Kibeho became an approved and authentic apparition in 2001.
- Most prophetic messages are for the people of that time to alert them of a particular circumstance and to help His people know the way in difficult times.
St. Thomas Aquinas says prophesy continues throughout all ages of the Church. An example of prophets in recent history, happened in 1981 in the African country of Rwanda and the village of Kibeho. The Blessed Mother appeared to three young girls with messages of prayer, conversion, redemptive suffering and repentance. On the Feast of Our Blessed Mother, August 15, 1982, the visionaries saw a vision of rivers of blood, savage murder and the rotting remains of hundreds of thousands of people. In 1994, those visions became a reality, as a terrible genocide came to Rwanda in which millions of people died. The Blessed Mother knew the dangers, warned them and tried to prepare them so the danger could be avoided or mitigated.
As Jesus said in the gospel reading from Matthew today, “Whoever receives a prophet, because he is a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward.”. The Lord gives light and grace to a prophet not just for the prophet, but for all those who receive him. When we accept an authentic prophet, we receive the light and even the warning, the guidance that the Lord wants to give and often consolation and hope. Those of you who know the Mission of Divine Mercy well, know we have often come back to this topic; it is essential to what the Lord is asking of the Mission of Divine Mercy.
