The Message of  Our Lady of LaSalette              given September 19, 1846
"...I couldn't see the cows, so I called Maximin and climbed up the little mound.
From there I could see our cows grazing peacefully and I was on my way down, with Maximin on his way up, when all at once
  I saw a beautiful LIGHT shining
      more brightly than the SUN.

  'Maximin do you see what is over there ?' ...Something inconceivably fantastic passed through  me in that moment and I felt myself being drawn.  I felt a great respect, full of
love, and my heart beat faster.  I kept my eyes firmly fixed on this LIGHT, which was static, and as if it had opened up,  I caught sight of another, much more brilliant LIGHT which
was moving
, and in this  LIGHT  I saw
a most beautiful  LADY sitting on top
                       of our Paradise,
 with Her Head in Her Hands.
This Beautiful Lady stood up;
She cooly crossed Her Arms while watching us, and said to us:
"Come, My children, fear not,
               I am here to
                  to you."

These soft and sweet words
           made me FLY to Her,

and my heart desired to
        attach itself to Her forever !
When I was up close to the Beautiful Lady,
       in front of Her to Her right,
            She began to speak
      and from Her Beautiful Eyes
      TEARS also started to flow.

"If My people do not wish
        to submit themselves,
I am forced to let go of the
           HAND of My SON.

It is heavy and weighs Me down so much I can no longer keep hold of it!

I have suffered all of the time for the rest of you !  If you do not wish 
      My SON
to abandon you, 
      I must take it upon Myself
      to PRAY for this continually.

And the rest of you think little of this.

In vain you will pray, in vain you will act, and you will never be able to make up for 
     the trouble I have taken over

                for the rest of you. 

I gave you six days to WORK;
    I kept the
seventh for Myself,
    and no one wishes to grant it to Me

         This is what weighs down
     The ARM of My SON so much.

  Those who drive carts cannot speak 
                  without putting
        The NAME of My SON 
                  in the middle !

           These are the two things
              which weigh down
ARM of MY SON so much.

If the harvest is spoiled, it is only because of the
rest of you. 
made you see this last year with the potatoes, you took little account of this.  It was quite the opposite when you found bad potatoes, you  swore oathsand you included
         The NAME of My SON.

They will continue to go BAD,
at Christmas there will be none left."

        "If you have corn, you must now sow it.
      The beasts will eat all
you sow. 
      And all that grows will fall to dust when you
  A GREAT FAMINE will come.
Before the FAMINE comes,
children under the age of seven will begin to tremble and will DIE in the arms of those who hold them.

The others will do PENANCE through HUNGER.  The nuts will go BAD,
the grapes will become ROTTEN

 'At this point, the Beautiful Lady,
 Who was entrancing me,
  for a moment did not make Herself heard.

I could see, however, that She was continuing,
as if speaking, to move graciously Her kindly lips.  At this moment, Maximin was receiving his 

Then, turning to me,
The Most Holy Virgin
spoke to me and gave me  a  SECRET  in French.  
    Here is this SECRET in its entirety
           as She gave it to me.'

      "Melanie, what I am about to tell 
 now will not always be a SECRET.   
       You may make it  PUBLIC  in 1858.
  "The priests, ministers of My Son,
     the priests, by their wicked lives,
     by their irreverence and their impiety
in the celebration of the Holy Mysteries,
by their love of money, their love of honors and pleasures, and the priests have become  cesspools of  impurity

Yes, the priests are asking VENGEANCE, and Vengeance is
hanging over their heads.  WOE to the priests 
and to those dedicated to GOD
who by their unfaithfulness
and their wicked lives are CRUCIFYING
            My SON again!

The SINS of those dedicated to GOD cry out towards Heaven and call for Vengeance, and now Vengeance
is at their door, for there is no one left
          to BEG MERCY and
  FORGIVENESS for the people

There are no more generous souls;
there is no one left worthy of offering a
stainless sacrifice to The Eternal
for the sake of the world.
      in an unprecedented way !
    " WOE to the inhabitants 
                of the earth  !
 GOD will exhaust His WRATH 
      upon them and no one
      will be able to ESCAPE so
  many AFFLICTIONS together.

The Chiefs, the Leaders of the people of GOD have neglected PRAYER
               and PENANCE
and the devil has be-dimmed their intelligence.

They have become wandering stars which the  old devil  will drag along with his tail to make them PERISH

GOD will allow
  the old  SERPENT
to cause divisions among those who reign in
every society and in every family. Physical and moral agonies will be suffered.

God will abandon mankind to itself and will
which will follow one after another for more than thirty five years.

The Society of men is on the eve of the most terrible SCOURGES
and of gravest events.

Mankind must expect to be ruled with an iron rod and to drink from
       The Chalice of 
        WRATH of GOD.

May the curate of My SON,
Pope Pius IX never leave ROME again after 1859;
may he, however, be steadfast and noble, may he fight with the weapons of FAITH and LOVE.

           I will be at his side.

May he be on his guard against Napoleon:  he is two-faced, and when he wishes to make himself Pope as well as Emperor,
GOD will soon draw back from him.  He is the master-mind who,
always wanting to ascend further, will fall on the sword he wished
to use to force his people to be
raised up.

Italy will be punished for her ambition in wanting to shake off
the yoke of

And so she will be left to fight a
BLOOD will FLOW on all sides

CHURCHES will be locked up

Priests and Religious Orders will be hunted down, and made to DIE
a cruel death.

Several will abandon the Faith,
and a great number of priests and members of religious orders will break away from the True Religion;
among these people there will even be bishops.

May the Pope guard against the performers of miracles.
For the time has come when the most astonishing WONDERS will take place on the earth
and  in the air.

In the year 1864,
 Lucifer  together with a large
number of DEMONS will be unloosed from HELL;
they will put an end to Faith little
by little, even in those dedicated to

They will BLIND them in such a way, that, unless they are blessed with a
special GRACE, these people will take on the spirit of these angels of

several religious institutions will lose all Faith and will LOSE many


Evil books will be abundant on earth and the spirits of DARKNESS will spread everywhere a universal
slackening of all that concerns the Service of GOD.

They will have great POWER over
will be churches built to serve
these spirits.  People will be transported from one place to another by these evil spirits, even priests,
for they will not have been guided by the good Spirit of the Gospel which is a spirit of humility,  charity  and
zeal  for the  Glory of  GOD.

On occasions, the DEAD and the
righteous will be brought back to life.  (That is to say that these dead will take on the form of righteous souls which had lived on earth, in order to lead men
further astray; these so-called
resurrected dead, who will be nothing but the
DEVIL in this form, will preach another gospel contrary to that of the
               True Jesus Christ,
denying the existence of Heaven;
that is also to say, the souls of the damnedAll these souls will appear as
if fixed to their bodies

Everywhere there will be extraordinary wonders, as true Faith has faded and
 false light  brightens the people.

THE CHURCH who think only
of piling riches upon riches
to protect their authority and dominate with pride

The Vicar of My SON will suffer a great deal, because for a while
The Church will yield to large
                PERSECUTION ,
           a time of Darkness and
     The Church will witness a  

The True Faith to The Lord
having been forgotten,
each individual will want to be on his own and be superior to people of same identity, they will abolish civil rights as well as Ecclesiastical,

all order and all justice would be trampled underfoot and only homocides, hate, jealousy, lies and dissension would
be seen without love for country or family.

The Holy Father will suffer a great deal.
I will be with him until the end and receive his sacrifice.  The mischievous would attempt his life several times to
do harm and shorten his days but neither him nor his successor will see the Triumph of The Church of GOD.

All the civil governments will have one and the same plan, which will be to ABOLISH and do away with every religious principle to make way for materialism, Atheism, spiritualism and VICE of all kinds.

In the year 1865, there will be
desecration of holy places.

In convents, the flowers of The Church will decompose and the devil will resort
to all his evil tricks to introduce sinners into religious orders, for disorder and the love of carnal pleasures will be spread all over the earth.

France, Italy, Spain and England will be
             BLOOD WILL FLOW
              IN THE STREETS

       Frenchman will fight Frenchman,
               Italian will fight Italian.

A general WAR will follow which will be appalling.  For a time, GOD will cease to remember France and Italy because The Gospel of Jesus Christ has been
forgotten.  The wicked will make use of
all their evil ways.

 Men will KILL each other;
massacre each other even in their homes.

At the first blow of His Thundering SWORD, the mountains and all Nature will Tremble in TERROR,
for the disorders and crimes of men
have pierced the Vault of the heavens.

Paris will burn and Marseilles will be engulfed.  Several cities will be shaken down and swallowed up by 

People will believe that ALL is LOST.  Nothing will be seen but MURDER, nothing will be heard but the clash of arms and BLASPHEMY.

The righteous will suffer greatly.

Their prayers, their penances and
their tears will rise up to Heaven and
all of GOD's people will BEG for FORGIVENESS and MERCY
           and will PLEAD for
  My help and intercession.

    And then JESUS CHRIST,
    in an Act of His JUSTICE
    and His Great
will command His Angels
    to have all His Enemies
    put to DEATH.

Suddenly, the Persecutors of
The Church of Jesus Christ
and all those given over to SIN will PERISH and the earth will become desert-like.

And then Peace will be made,
and man will be reconciled with GOD

    Jesus Christ will be served
        worshiped and glorified.

Charity will flourish everywhere.

The new Kings will be the right arm of
the Holy Church, which will be
strong, humble, and pious in Its poor but fervent imitation of the virtues of
                 Jesus Christ.

The Gospel will be preached everywhere and mankind will make great progress in its faith, for there will be UNITY among the workers of Jesus Christ
and man will live in fear of GOD.

This peace among man will be short-lived.  Twenty-five years of plentiful harvests will make them forget that the sins of men are cause of all the 
on this earth.

A forerunner of the ANTICHRIST,
with his troops gathered from several nations, will fight against
                the True Christ,
                the only SAVIOR
                  of the world

He will shed much BLOOD and
will want to annihilate the worship of GOD to make himself
be looked upon as a god.

The earth will be struck by calamities
of all kinds
(in addition to
PLAGUE and FAMINE which will be WIDE-SPREAD).
There will be series of WARS
until the last WAR, which will then be fought by the TEN KINGS
all of whom will have one and the same plan and will be the only RULERS of the world.

Before this comes to pass, there will be a
kind of false peace in the world.  People will think of nothing but amusement.

The wicked will give themselves
over to all kinds of SINS.

But the children of the Holy Church,
        the children of My faith,
           My true followers,
they will grow in their Love for GOD and in all the virtues most precious to Me.

  BLESSED are the souls humbly 
    guided by The Holy Spirit !

  I shall FIGHT at their side until 
     they reach a fullness of years.

Nature is asking for VENGEANCE because of Man, and she trembles with dread at what must happen to the earth stained with CRIME

, earth, and you who 
proclaim yourselves as serving
Jesus Christ and who, on the inside, ONLY ADORE YOURSELVES,

tremble, for GOD will hand you over to His Enemy, because the Holy places are in a state of corruption.  Many convents are no longer Houses of GOD, but the grazing grounds of Asmodeas and his like.  It will be during this time that the ANTICHRIST will be born of a Hebrew nun, a false virgin who will communicate with the old SERPENT, the master of impurity, his father will be B.
At birth, he will spew out BLASPHEMY; he will have teeth, in a word; he will be the DEVIL incarnate.

He will scream horribly, he will perform wonders; he will feed on nothing but impurityHe will have brothers who, although not devils incarnate like him, will be children of Evil.  At the age of twelve, they will  draw attention upon themselves by the gallant victories they will have won; soon they will each lead armies, aided by the legions of

The seasons will be altered, the earth will produce nothing but bad fruit,

the stars will lose their regular motion, and the moon will only reflect a faint reddish glow

WATER and FIRE will give the earth's globe CONVULSIONS and terrible EARTHQUAKES which will swallow up mountains, cities, etc...

        ROME Will LOSE
             THE FAITH
         and become
    Seat of ANTICHRIST !

The demons of the air together with
the Antichrist will perform great wonders on earth and in the atmosphere, and men will become more and more perverted.

GOD will take care of His faithful servants and men of good will.  The Gospel will be preached everywhere, and all peoples of all nations will get to know the TRUTH.  

    I make an URGENT APPEAL
                 to the earth.

    I call on the true disciples
         of the Living GOD
    Who reigns in Heaven;

   I call on the true followers of 
         Christ made Man
    the only true Savior of men;

         I call on My children,
                the true
   those who have given themselves 
   to Me so that I may lead them to
          My Divine SON,

those whom I carry in My Arms,
so to speak, those who have lived on
                 My Spirit.

Finally,   I call on the
  Apostles of  The LAST DAYS,

    the faithful disciples of
            Jesus Christ

who have lived in scorn for the world and for themselves,
in poverty and in humility,
in scorn and in silence, in prayer and in mortification, in chastity and  in union with GOD,

in suffering and unknown to the world.  It is time they came out and filled the world with LIGHT.

GO and reveal yourselves as My cherished children.  I am at your side and within you, provided that your FAITH is the LIGHT which shines upon you in these unhappy days.

May your ZEAL make you famished 
 for the Glory and the Honour of 

FIGHT, Children of LIGHT,
    you  the few who can see.

For now is the time of all times,
          the end of all ends.

       The CHURCH will be
             in ECLIPSE,

the world will be in dismay. But now 

    ENOCH and ELI will come
   filled with the Spirit of GOD.  

         They will PREACH
   with the MIGHT of GOD,

          and men of good will
          will believe in GOD,
 and many souls will be comforted

They will make great steps forward 
           through the virtue of
           The Holy Spirit
   and will condemn the devilish 
      lapses  of the Antichrist.

  to the inhabitants of the earth !

There will be BLOODY WARS

    It will RAIN with a fearful
      HAIL of ANIMALS.

                 There will be

      which will SHAKE cities,

     which will SWALLOW UP  

VOICES will be heard in the air.  Men will beat their heads against
walls, call for their death,
and on another side
will be their TORMENT.
               on ALL sides.

         Who will be the victor
         if  GOD does not shorten
         the length of the TEST ?

    All the BLOOD,  the TEARS  and
    PRAYERS  of the righteous,
        GOD will relent.

            ENOCH and ELI
will be put to death.

    Pagan ROME will disappear.

  will FALL and CONSUME

                three cities.

       ALL the UNIVERSE
    will be STRUCK with  

and many will let themselves be lead ASTRAY because they have not
worshiped the
lives among them.

             It is TIME;

    the SUN is Darkening;

       The ABYSS is opening. 
                        Here is the
    King of Kings of Darkness;
here is The BEAST with his subjects, calling himself the Savior of the world.  He will rise proudly into the air to go to Heaven.

   He will be SMOTHERED
by the
   BREATH of The Archangel
Saint Michael.

 He will FALL, and the earth, which will have been in a continuous series of EVOLUTIONS for THREE DAYS,

will open its FIERY BOWELS;
and he will have PLUNGED
for ALL ETERNITY  with all his followers into the EVERLASTING CHASMS of HELL.

And then WATER
and FIRE
   will PURGE the earth and 

           of  men's pride and

    GOD will be SERVED


Then The Holy Virgin gave me,
                  also in French,
  The RULE of a New Religious Order

When She had given me the RULE of this New Religious Order,
The Holy Virgin continued the speech in
the same manner

"If they CONVERT, the stones and rocks will change into wheat, and potatoes will be found sown in the earth.  Do you say your prayers properly, My children ?"   We both replied:   "Ohno, Madame,
                       not so much

"Oh!  My children, you must say them morning and evening.  When you can do no more, say a Pater and an Ave Maria; and when you have the time to do better, you will say more."

"Only a few old women go to MASS; in the summer, the rest work all day SUNDAY and in the winter, when they are at a loose end, they only go to MASS to make fun of religion.  During LENT, they go to the butcher's like hungry dogs."

"Have you ever seen any spoilt wheat,
 My children ? 
'We both answered:  "Oh no, Madame."   The Holy Virgin turned to Maximin, saying:

"But you, My child, you must have seen some once near le 'Coin', with your father.  The farmer said to your father:  'Come and see how my wheat's gone
!'  You went to see.  Your father took two or three ears in his hand, rubbed them, and they fell to dust.  Then, on your way back, when you were no more than half an hour away from Corps, your father gave you a piece of bread, and said:  'Take it, eat it while you can, my son, for I don't know who will be eating anything next year if the wheat is spoiled like that !' "
  'Maximin replied:  "It's quite true, Madame, I didn't remember."   The Most Holy Virgin brought Her speech to an end in French.'

           "And so, My children,
         TO ALL MY PEOPLE."

 'The Most BEAUTIFUL LADY crossed the stream, and after two more steps, without turning back towards us, who were following
Her (for we were DRAWN to Her by Her Brilliance and even more by Her Kindness which elated me, which seemed to MELT my heart),  She repeated to us:

         "And so, My children,
The MOTHER OF GOD, MARY MOST HOLY, Ever Virgin  appeared here in 1846 A.D.  This Basilica was built in Her Honour at LaSalette, France.  'Our Lady of LaSalette'.  Due to countless Miracles, Her Apparitions and Messages are approved by The Roman Catholic Church The following Secret was given by Our Lady to two shepherd children, Melanie Calvat and Maximin Giraud on September 19, 1846.  Published in Leece, France, on Nov. 15, 1879 with Imprimatur by Bishop Zola.
