KIGALI, NOVEMBER 23, 2021 (CISA)-“Kibeho: Listen My Children,” an original docudrama production by Eternal World Television Network Global Catholic Network (EWTN), premieres on November 24, 2021, at 10:00 pm ET.
In a press statement dated November 11, EWTN revealed that “The Nov. 24 premiere will be preceded at 8 a.m. East African Time by “EWTN Live,” with Immaculée IIlibagiza, who appears prominently in the docudrama. Immaculée is the woman who told the world about the genocide in the 2017 best-selling book, ‘Left to Tell,’ which was later made into a well-known documentary by the same name.”
The docudrama depicts the tragic holocaust in Rwanda in 1994 and specifically highlights the warnings of a looming disaster by Our Lady who in a series of apparitions to three schoolgirls twelve years before, evinced, “the visions of destruction, torture, and human carnage as well as a river of blood.”
“In addition to observations from Immaculée, the docudrama includes footage of the actual Rwandan school girl visionaries, the mental torture they endured by those who did not believe them, the doctors who were charged with determining if they were mentally ill, and church officials who made the final determination.”
The film, moreover, portrays one of the visionaries bearing witness through Our Lady, of heaven, hell and purgatory. The visions by one of the visionaries were so terrifying according to the statement, that, “the young girl told Our Lady she was afraid she would never be able to sleep again.”
“Our Lady of Kibeho requested that the people of Rwanda pray the Seven Sorrow Rosary, a devotion given to St. Bridget centuries earlier which had largely been forgotten, “the statement by EWTN Global Catholic Network partly reads.
During the genocide, the sisters and the convent school where the visionaries attended prayed the rosary all day long and miraculously, all survived the bloodbath
According to the statement, the film also includes a scene where Marie Claire Mukangango, one of the visionaries asks Our Lady why she was shown the places. In response she says, “I showed you so you know the life that matters most is what is coming after this life on earth. Go and tell everyone. Encourage them to live the right way. Tell them to live without respecting God is the ultimate waste of time. They will regret it bitterly.”
“There is much more to tell about these apparitions. This is a story no one who cares about eternal life should miss,” the statement concludes.
