My name is Maria. I’m from Valencia (Spain) and I am the mother of six children. Javi and I have only been married for eight years, so you can imagine the marathon of pregnancies we’ve run. Well, thanks to these children, or rather, these pregnancies, the Home “slipped in” to our home.
From 1981 to 1989, Our Lady came once more to visit her children, this time on the continent of Africa. She appeared in the small town of Kibeho, in the Diocese of Gikongoro (Rwanda), as the “Mother of the Word, Our Lady of Sorrows.” She came to call her children to conversion and repentance – “Repent, repent!”.

Fr. José Francisco, ordained seven years ago, is currently the Pastor at Perales del Río, a small town in the Diocese of Getafe (Madrid). Although they were originally from Seville, his family moved to Madrid for work. In this providential way, he found out about the seminary in Getafe, where he studied and was later ordained a priest. He went to Perales del Río to substitute the previous pastor who was ill and he has spent the last two and a half years there.

The year 2012 was coming to an end, and we were at 7:00am Mass in the Church of the Merced in Portoviejo, Ecuador. Before Mass started, Sr. Ruth Maria pointed out a little old lady that seemed like she had just come out of a fairytale. She was probably ninety something years old, walked hunched over, had grey hair, bright eyes and a little girl’s smile. She was with a man younger than her that looked like he could be her son.
