Our Lady of La Salette
In 1846, the Mother of God appeared to two shepherd children in La Salette, France. She gave them many warnings about how God is going to punish mankind if mankind did not stop sinning. She also made some startling predictions.
“The Church will be in eclipse…. Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the Antichrist.”-September 19, 1846
“Fight, children of light, you little number who see clearly, for behold the time of times, the end of ends”
“Lucifer, with a great number of demons will be unchained from Hell. By degrees they shall abolish the Faith, even among persons consecrated to God.”
“The abomination shall be seen in holy places, in convents, and then the demon shall make himself the king of hearts.”
When Our Blessed Mother warns that the true Faith will be abolished and extinguished, what She is prophesying is that the number of true Catholics will be so small, that it will appear as if they have been abolished or extinguished, but, as noted above, we know that the Church can never be totally extinguished, but will endure until the end of time.
Regarding the veracity of this apparition, which some modernist authors erroneously challenge, the Bishop of the diocese of La Salette published in 1851 a mandate which in part said: “[The apparition] has within itself all the characteristics of the truth, and that the faithful are justified in believing it is beyond doubt and for certain.” This mandate was sent to Rome and received the approval of Pope Pius IX.
Our Lady of La Salette ora pro nobis!
