The Warning: LaSalette

LaSalette: 1846

She came again to a small town called "LaSalette" in Southern France. This time she appeared to two children who were decidedly ungifted and not particularly religious either. They were herding cattle when she revealed herself in glowing vision, as a sorrowful queen. It was the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows, September 19th at that period. She was weeping as she moaned to them over the sins of her "children," complaining that she could "no longer hold back the arm of my Son." Dressed in royal fashion, her robes were adorned with the instruments of the Passion, embroidered on her garments in light. In correspondence with her prophecies, a great potato-famine and wheat-blight struck Western Europe, and a convulsive sickness afflicted little children, who died in their mother's arms. In this visitation, her words again clearly assert that the people's sins bring on them such misfortunes. She demands repentance. Her people must obey God and His
commandments, or punishment will descend upon them.
