The suffering that saves (please do not make her cry)

''No one likes to suffer'' – in this phrase can, unfortunately, be found a lot of truth.
I said unfortunately, for where there's no place for obedience of many  – as it is in our modern, based on almost add(ct)itive gaining of pleasures world – there should be an openness for the voluntary suffering of some.

However I am quite well acquainted with the apparitions of Fatima, Lourdes, and Knock, non of these struck me so much as the apparitions of Kibeho did. Kibeho is a small town located in Rwanda, where some visionaries claim to have seen Immaculata crying on August 15, 1982.

I bet that Our Lady herself do not wanted to suffer, both at the foot of the Cross, about 2000 years ago, and recently – because of our sins.

Yet she had been suffering willingly for us all, knowing – what is now the well known part of Kibeho's message:

''No one will reach heaven without suffering''.

Mary, conceived without sin, teach us how to endure our suffering patiently, that is without making you cry any more.
