The Secret of the Apparition
Our Lady at La Salette...
what I am about to tell you
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."
“God will strike in an unprecedented
"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 bedimmed 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 send punishments which will follow
one after the other 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 the 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 the Lord of Lords. And so she
will be left to fight a war; blood will flow on all sides. Churches will be
locked up or desecrated. 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 God. 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 hell; several religious
institutions will lose all faith and will lose many souls."
“Evil books will be abundant on
earth and the sprits of darkness will spread everywhere a universal slackening
of all that concerns the service of God. They will have great power over Nature:
there 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."
“Everywhere there will be extraordinary
wonders, as true faith has faded and false light brightens the people. Woe
to the Princes of 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 frightful crisis."
“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 homicides,
hate, jealousy, lies and dissension would be seen without love for country
“The Holy Father will suffer a
I will be with him until the end
and receive his sacrifice."
“The mischievous would attempt
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 principal 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 make himself like the King of all hearts. May those in
charge of religious communities be on their guard against the people they
must receive, for 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 at war. 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 earthquakes. 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 mercy 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, worshipped 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 men will be
Twenty-five years of plentiful harvests
will make them forget that the sins of men
are the cause of all the troubles on this earth."
“A forerunner of
the Antichrist, with his troops gathered from several nations, will fight
against the true Christ, the only Saviour 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 a series of wars until the last war, which
will then be fought by the ten Kings of the Antichrist, 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 sin. 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. Tremble, 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 impurity. He 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 hell."
“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 the seat of the 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 Saviour of
men; I call on my children, the true faithful, 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 to be 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 Jesus Christ. 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. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth!
There will be bloody wars and famines, plagues and infectious diseases. It
will rain with a fearful hail of animals. There will be thunderstorms which
will shake cities, earthquakes which will swallow up countries. Voices will
be heard in the air. Men will beat their heads against walls, call for their
death, and on another side death will be their torment. Blood will flow 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. The fire of
Heaven will fall and consume three cities. All the universe will be struck
with terror and many will let themselves be lead astray because they have
not worshipped the true Christ who lives among them. It is time; the sun is
darkening; only faith will survive."
“Now is the time; the abyss is
opening. Here is the King of Kings of darkness; here is the Beast with his
subjects, calling himself the Saviour 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 up 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 consume all
the works of men's pride and all will be renewed. God will be served and glorified.”
