Our Lady appeared 175 years ago at La Salette, France, September 19, 1846. Today’s post is the second of our two posts on the Prophecy of Our Lady of La Salette.
Today, a brief discussion on the symbols we see in the Vision of La Salette and their possible meaning to us now.
A reader has asked me about the depiction of Our Lady of La Salette, “She appears weeping profusely, and dressed in a distinctive manner, is there some special meaning behind this?” I will venture a few impressions, but dear readers, please feel free to offer your own opinions or those of others.
The first impression, regarding her tears, is that she is sorrowful because of the betrayal of her children, and this is especially poignant to her in her most beloved priests. Although this was not as obvious at the time, in the mid-19th century as it is today, the betrayal of Our Lord Jesus Christ by His priests is one of the deepest wounds of Our Lord’s present Passion in the Church. When Our Blessed Mother cries, how can her children be indifferent?
In her apparition at La Salette, Our Lady never stopped crying, and now, 175 years later, what do you think Our Lord will do? You may consider re-reading our prophecy of Elizabeth Canori-Mora. Whether you believe me or not, the hour is indeed very late. (Apoc. 3.3)
THE SYMBOLS, A DIRE WARNING
The unique Crucifix of La Salette has a hammer on the left and a pincers on the right. Although it was not as clear then, it is much clearer now, isn’t it? The hammer on the left, symbol of hatred and sin, the very malice of Satan, was the tool used to nail the most Sacred Body of Christ to the Cross. And now we recognise it as the symbol of atheistic communism, tool of the anti-christ and now the treasured symbol of Pope Francis.
Now think, on the left, the hammer which crucifies our Savior, and on the right, the pincers with which the true friends of Christ removed the hateful nails hammered in by Christ’s enemies.
As for the apparition, it was a vision of Our Lady radiant with the same dazzling light as at Fatima and of the same indescribable beauty. The vari-coloured roses call to mind the rays of light in many hues issuing from the rings on the fingers of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception when she gave the Miraculous Medal to Saint Catherine Labouré, and those rays represented graces. Although I have not seen any explanation, I believe that may be a similar interpretation in this instance, for she is the Mediatrix of Grace and those graces are largely ignored, treated with indifference today.
Think a moment on her tears and the hammer: Kneeling at your crucifix in meditation on the sorrowful mysteries, can you not hear that hammer echoing on down through the ages as it drove those nails through Our Dear Lord’s sacred hands and feet? Can you not imagine that she still hears that hammer, feels in her sorrowful heart the pain of that hammer, those nails, our own hatred, sin and indifference to her Son’s love for us?
ANNOUNCING THE PASSION OF THE CHURCH
All of the symbols, taken in their entirety, point to a particular interpretation, which is a most dire warning. I believe that Our Lady was announcing the beginning of the true Passion of the Church. She is indicating that just as Satan once infiltrated the close-knit band of Christ’s Apostles with Judas, at the time of her visit to La Salette, Satan had already achieved a very significant foothold within the leadership of the Church. The Pope had already conceded to the Masonic leaders of France the right to choose Bishops. Hence, we saw the virulent opposition of several French bishops – and then joined by those in other countries – to Our Lady’s message at La Salette. Today, again, this is much clearer as we now have a pope who is the perfect example of what a masonic pope would be, put into office by the machinations of a masonic Cardinal Danneels and applauded by Freemasons from Italy to Argentina.
THE CHURCH WILL BE ECLIPSED
On that remote mountaintop in France, Our Lady warned us that the true Church would be eclipsed. She warned of the same lying wonders we see today as gullible Catholics prefer comforting false apparitions to the sterner stuff of the true Marian apparitions. She foretold the immense apostasy that is so painfully evident today. Our Lady of La Salette is known as “Reconciler of Sinners”, but all discussion of her message has been silenced by those in control of the Church. Indeed, Melanie Calvat and Lucia of Fatima remain effectively silenced to this day, while heretics are honored.
After the revolution of Vatican II, the Index of Forbidden Books was abolished, allowing heresy to be proclaimed openly and taught in seminaries, but the prohibition against discussing the message of La Salette has never been lifted. That makes only two messages forbidden, La Salette and the true Message of Fatima, for Sister Lúcia was also silenced.
A CALL TO REPARATION
Since both warned of the satanic control of the Church, we do, as foretold by Sister Lucia, understand more clearly. Even more than at La Salette, Fatima’s Message is explicitly a call to rigorous reparation. Little children were shown hell and urged to make of everything a sacrifice. But yet, the most influential Catholic leaders today have failed to unite and proclaim the need for First Saturdays of Reparation and the entire Fatima Plan. Please continue to pray that they will do so.
For so long now, from her message at Quito, on through La Salette and Knock and then to Fatima and at last, to Akita, Our Lady has sorrowfully begged her children to hear her. She is still, with immense sorrow, awaiting our response.
Well dear readers, the choice is yours – to heed the Message consistently given by the Most Holy Mother of God over many centuries from Quito to Fatima, or to waste precious time on fruitless distractions and false devotions, false solutions. La Salette’s message and prophecy, like Fatima’s is stern but merciful and it is the only message we have been given. There is no other. Return to the Message of Fatima while you can.
“God is giving two last remedies to the world.
These are the Holy Rosary and Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
These are the last two remedies which signify that there will be no others.”
(Sister Lucia of Fatima.)
Remember – Our Lady needs us to obey: First Saturdays of Reparation, daily rosary, at least 5 mysteries, wear her brown scapular and live your Total Consecration to her Immaculate Heart, offering daily duties in reparation and for the conversion of poor sinners.
† Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of our hearts, Mother of the Church, do thou offer to the Eternal Father the Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, for the conversion of poor sinners, especially our Pontiff.
Open your hearts to the Lord and serve Him only: and He will free you from the hands of your enemies. With all your heart return to Him, and take away from your midst any strange gods” (I Kings 7:3)
† Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy kingdom come! Viva Cristo Rey!
† O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse thee!
† St. Joseph, protect us, protect our families, protect our priests.
† St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.
Please pray for the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary!
~ by evensong for love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ, King.
Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O Sacred Virgin! Give me strength against thine enemies!
