Immaculée Ilibagiza was born and raised in a small village in Rwanda, Africa. She is a survivor of the Rwandan genocide.To protect his only daughter from rape and murder, Immaculée’s father told her to run to a local pastor’s house for protection. The pastor quickly sheltered Immaculée and seven other women in a hidden 3 x 4 foot bathroom. For the next 91 days, Immaculée and the other women huddled silently in this small room. She daily recited the Rosary and credits it for her survival. Her entire family was wiped out , with the exception of one brother who was studying abroad. She also found nearly one million of her extended family, friends, neighbors and fellow Rwandans were massacred. She then emigrated to the United States. She has written religious books and organises retreats and also pilgrimages to Kibeho the Lourdes of Africa.
One day Immaculée received the following letter from a lady who could not conceive but who began to say the SEVEN SORROWS ROSARY
I hope this is the best way to get in touch with you? I write to tell you about what I consider to be another miracle of the 7 sorrows rosary. I saw you in person a couple of years ago when you were in Southern California and even before that, after I read your book, "Left to Tell", I have been praying the 7 sorrows rosary. I have a niece M., who desperately wanted to have her own baby. She married a wonderful fellow who had a daughter from a previous relationship and M. loved that little girl, but just wanted her own baby and to have the experience of being a mom.
She and her husband tried and tried in vain to get pregnant for a long time, but after few years of trying, finally M. got pregnant. She had miscarriages 4 different times. They would get so excited, but after a short period of time, there would be no heartbeat. She was so sad! Last July, at a family reunion, she whispered to me, "Auntie S., I am 7 weeks pregnant! Please pray for me, Auntie!" I began that very day praying the 7 sorrows rosary for her.
I also told her about it and asked her if she would like more information on it, she said, "Yes"! So I sent her, from your website, the rosary and the booklet on how to pray it. I have prayed it almost every day since July. Her pregnancy continued to go well and she got farther along than ever. The baby was doing well and her due date was March 4th. On January 14th, her sister and sister-in-law gave her a baby shower which I flew up to attend. She was so happy and looked so great and we all were so happy for her and her husband.
The next morning, however, I looked at my phone and found a text from her saying, "Auntie, please pray. I went into labor last night. I am in the hospital and the baby is coming!" Well, baby E. was born on January 15th at only 32 weeks. He has done amazingly well! He was only in the NICU for 19 days, which is not much for being born that early. They got to bring him home last weekend. He is truly a miracle! Thank you Mother Mary and Jesus! Thank you also Immaculee for your wonderful work. You are an inspiration to all. God Bless, S. M."
Please share with anyone who might be facing any trouble, or needing a healing. The Seven Sorrows is a gift from Heaven, Our Lady obtained for us. She promised Her assistance and many graces from those who will call upon God through this Prayer. The impossible will be possible. I also kindly ask you to share with me any miracle of the Seven Sorrows Rosary so I can continue to encourage others to say it. Our Lady asked us for her help to help her children know this gift, She will reward you.
God bless you,
