Have you been paying attention to the many changes happening around the world? I believe that we are in the End Times, but we have a very long way to go. Will God's promises in Revelations occur sooner or later? That, we do not know. But I believe it is both a blessing and requisite for each of us to know about Our Lady of La Salette, and then Our Lady of Lourdes, appearing in the next post. It is by educating ourselves toward Christ and God that we will be able to endure the false prophets and Satan's reign on earth. For me, if someone knocked on my door and threatened to kill me if I did not denounce Christianity, I would welcome the arrow of the sword piercing my heart.
Our Lady loves us so deeply, and she, through special permission of her son, continues to come again and again around the world, begging all to come to conversion. When Jesus grows weary and feels there has been enough chances, he will release her hand and turn to His Father, God, to open his wrath upon the world.
These two posts are both exciting story, but also approved by The Church as true visions by those who saw and spoke with Our Lady. God bless you as you read.
Lovingly in Jesus Christ,
La Salette 1846
Let us dry Her tearsFeastday: September 19
And on the 19th of September 1846, the feast day of Our Lady of Sorrows, the Virgin Mary appeared again; this time in a small village called La Salette. Near Corps, 1.800 metres above sea level and about 35 kilometres from Grenoble in France. She appeared in La Salette to two small children who were looking after the cattle. They were Melanie Calvat and Maximin Giraud aged 15 and 11 years who had only known each other for two days. The two children clomb the slopes of the Mont sous-les-Baisses, each urging four cows up the mountain. Melanie tells us: “I had seen from a hill that ours cows were lying down placidly chewing the cud. I went down and Maximin started to climb upwards. Suddenly I saw a beautiful light, much brighter than the sun and felt full of tremendous loving wonder and respect. In that light I saw a very beautiful woman with her head resting in her hands. The lady stood up and said; come nearer children, do not be afraid “I am here to tell you great news.”
The children were amazed to see that The Lady looked very sad and had tears streaming down her cheeks. She folded her arms over her breast. At first she spoke to the children in French but quickly started to speak to them in their own local dialect. Our Blessed Lady spoke over people swearing, not keeping the Sunday has a day of rest and disobeying Gods laws. Her words were very important and impressive: “If My people do not obey God, I shall be forced to let go of My Sons Hand”. This statement points to the last days of the world. Our Blessed Lady's sad expression, her tears and words show us Her very real care for and sympathy with all people. “……. you’ll never be able to repay Me for what I have done for you. Our Lady asked us
Melanie says that both secrets were written down and were handed to Pope Pius 1X in 1851. Maximin never published the secret given to him, as he died before so doing. Cardinal Antonelli did give a copy of this secret to the Countess of Clermont-Tonnerre. A. Peladin in the “Annales du Surnaturel” published it in 1888.
Below you can read some of this secret:
- three quarters of the population of France shall lose their Faith
- a protestant nation in the North will repent and proclaim their Faith. Because of this other nations shall return to God in faith.
- the Church shall grow and bloom once more:
- after this peace will be greatly disturbed by the ‘monster’! The (great) monster shall come at the end of the 19th century or at the latest at the beginning of the 20th century.
What about the secrets given to Melanie in La Salette? The Blessed Virgin had said to her, “Melanie, what I am going to tell you now does not have to remain a secret. You may tell it in 1858” (this is the year that Our Lady appeared in Lourdes). These secrets told to Melanie have caused a lot of unrest and disagreement. Among other things Our Lady told of the coming attempt to murder the Pope, which would not shorten his life.
Whilst these apparition of Our Lady took place 153 years ago, these words are extremely relevant today. The given secrets are important to the entire development of the Church and the world until the end of the period of time. She asked the children to pray morning and night and if time was a problem, to at least say an Our Father and a
When Our Blessed Lady talks of Her people, She means everybody in the entire world who believes in Jesus Christ, Her Son. She spoke has The Queen of the World/ Queen of all Nations. Maximin tells us that the Lady was beautiful, great, a wonderful shining brilliant light, she wore a white cloak, a bright yellow
Maximin also describes how they saw The Lady disappear. First she was elevated to about one and a half metre high and then She faded and vanished before our eyes. Melanie said: “She must be a great Saint, if we had known that we would have ask her to take us with her”. The children were horribly victimized, with threats, teasing, bribes and very mean tricks. But despite all this their stories remained exactly the same time and again. Finally after a long and stringent examination of the facts, the Bishops formally recognized that Our Blessed Mother did appear to the children in La Salette. This was in 1851.
Maximin died on the first of March 1875 at just 40 years of age. Melanie lived for many years in various convents in France, England and Italy. She died 15 December 1904 and was put to rest in Altamura (Italy).
"This apparition in La Salette is fully approved by the Holy See: November 16th, 1851"

Our Blessed Mother cries in La Salette
|Memorare to Our Lady of La Salette|
Remember, Our Lady of La Salette,
true Mother of Sorrows,
the tears you shed for us on Calvary.
Remember also the care you have taken
to keep us faithful to Christ, your Son.
Having done so much for your children,
you will not now abandon us.
Comforted by this consoling thought,
we come to you pleading,
despite our infidelities and ingratitude.
Virgin of Reconciliation,
do not reject our prayers, but intercede for us,
obtain for us the grace
to love Jesus above all else.
May we console you by a holy life
and so come to share the eternal life
Christ gained by his cross.
