Great Article on La Salette

Photo Credit to Spirit Daily. This image is striking and quite moving. This is an actual photo of a statue of Our Lady of La Salette taken in 1999 while her shrine in Attelboro, Massachusetts burned behind her. You can see the crown of flowers which adorn our Lady's head as she looks up to heaven, crying for her children. This is a rather famous statue and depiction of the Blessed Virgin Mary as she appeared to the seers, Melanie and Maximin, in La Salette, near Corps, France in the early 1846. She appeared in the apparition as Our Lady of Sorrows.

I strongly recommend reading the article about Our Lady of La Salette available here.

This apparition along with its message is approved as authentic and for propagation for the faithful by the Holy Catholic Church.

Our Lady of La Salette, Our Lady of Tears, Pray for us. Amen+

I hadn't heard about La Salette. Will have to learn more about it.

If you're interested, I have a whole series on the La Salette apparition and Our Lady's messages in the archives, or do a search on

Will take a look at your archives...when I get a chance. It always takes me a few visits to absorb the entirety of some of your posts (distractions and a mushy brain are to blame), so will need a block of time to read up of La Salette ;}
