On September 19, 1846, a beautiful lady appeared to Maximin Giraud and Melanie Calvat on a slope of the French Alps near Grenoble. As the Lady of La Salette, the children noticed a globe of fire falling on the ground where they stood.
“Come near, my children; do not be afraid. I am here to tell you great news. If my people refuse to submit, I will be forced to let go the arm of my Son. It is so strong and so heavy, I can no longer hold it back.”
The people in the area were experiencing a great potato famine.
As the beautiful lady rose into the sky, weeping she acclaimed, “Very well, my children, make this known to all my people, and pray, live rightly.”
In this our time of famine for truth and justice, we can come to this beautiful lady.
O Lady of La Salette, Reconciler of sinners, pray for us.
