People browse items for sale at the The Shrine of Our Lady of Sorrows gift shop in Kibeho, Rwanda. This is the only sanctioned Marian sanctuary in Africa. Kibeho's overseers and the Rwandan government hope this place will become a top tourism site. Three young Rwandan women had visions of Mary, the first vision coming to Alphonsine Mumureke, then 16, on Nov. 28, 1981.
