Official recognition for Virgin Mary appearances in Rwanda

Reported apparitions of the Virgin Mary in Rwanda between 1981 and 1983 have received the first official recognition.

Zenit reports that Bishop Augustine Misago of the Diocese of Gikongoro has confirmed their authenticity, as well as the good faith of the visionaries, during a Mass celebrated in the Cathedral of Gikongoro.

The nuncio and all Rwanda's bishops attended the Mass. On Friday, the Holy See published an explanatory note written by the diocese.
