THE SECRET OF LA SALETTE REVEALED BY OUR LADY TO HER ELECTED SEERS MAXIMIN GIRAUD AND MELANIE CALVAT IN LA SALETTE, FRANCE, SEPTEMBER, 19, 1846
1. 'Melanie, what I am going to tell you now will not always be secret.
You will be allowed to publish it in 1858.'
2. 'The priests, ministers of my Son, the priests, by their bad life, by
their irreverences and their impiety in celebrating the holy mysteries, by
love of money, love of honor and of pleasures, the priests have become
cesspools of impurity. Yes, the priests are asking for vengeance, and
vengeance is suspended over their heads. Woe to the priests and to
persons consecrated to God, who by their infidelities and their bad life
are crucifying anew my Son! The sins of persons consecrated to God cry
out towards Heaven and call for vengeance, and see how vengeance is
at their doors, because there is no longer found anyone to implore
mercy and forgiveness for the people; there are no longer generous
souls, there is no longer anyone worthy to offer the Victim without
blemish to the Eternal on behalf of the world.'
3. 'God is going to strike in a manner without example.'
4. 'Woe to the inhabitants of the earth! God is going to exhaust His
wrath, and no one will be able to take himself away from so many
5. 'The leaders, the guides of the people of God have neglected prayer
and penance, and the demon has obscured their intelligence; they have
become these wandering stars that the old devil will drag along with his
tail to make them perish. God will permit the old serpent to place
divisions among rulers, in all societies and in all families; physical and
moral pains will be suffered; God will abandon men to themselves, and
will send chastisements which will follow one after another for more
than thirty-five years.'
6. 'Society is on the eve of the most terrible scourges and of the
greatest events; one must expect to be ruled with an iron rod and to
drink the chalice of the wrath of God.'
7. 'May the Vicar of my Son, the sovereign Pontiff Pius IX, no longer
leave Rome after the year 1859; but may he be firm and generous, may
he fight with the weapons of faith and love; I will be with him.'
8. 'May he be wary of Napoleon; his heart is double, and when he will
want to be at the same time Pope and emperor, soon God will withdraw
from him: he is this eagle who, wanting always to raise himself up, will
fall on the sword which he wanted to use in order to force the peoples
to raise him up.'
9. 'Italy will be punished for her ambition in wanting to shake off the
yoke of the Lord of Lords; also she will be delivered over to war; blood
will flow on all sides; the Churches will be closed or desecrated; the
priests, the religious will be hunted; they will be made to die, and to die
a cruel death. Several will abandon the faith, and the number of priests
and religious who will separate themselves from the true religion will be
great; Among these persons there will be found even some Bishops.'
10. 'May the Pope keep himself on guard against the performers of
miracles, because the time has come when the most astonishing
wonders will take place on the earth and in the air.'
11. 'In the year 1864, Lucifer with a great number of demons will be
unleashed from hell; they will abolish the faith little by little and even in
persons consecrated to God; they will blind them in such a way that
barring a particular grace these persons will take on the spirit of these
bad angels: several religious houses will lose the faith entirely and will
lose many souls.'
12. 'Bad books will abound on earth, and the spirits of darkness will
spread everywhere a universal slackening in all that concerns the
service of God; they will have a very great power over nature: there will
be churches to serve these spirits. Some persons will be transported
from one place to another by these bad spirits and even some priests,
because they will not be guiding themselves by the good spirit of the
Gospel, which is a spirit of humility, charity and zeal for the glory of
God. The dead and the just will be made to revive.' [That is to say that
these dead will take the appearance of just souls who had lived on
earth, so as to better mislead men: these so-called resurrected dead,
who will be nothing other than the demon under these appearances, will
preach another Gospel contrary to the one of the true Christ Jesus,
denying the existence of heaven, or they may also be the souls of the
damned. All these souls will appear as if united to their bodies.] 'There
will be in all places extraordinary wonders, because the true faith is
dying out and because false light enlightens the world. Woe to the
Princes of the Church who will not be occupied except to pile riches
upon riches, to safeguard their authority and to dominate with pride.'
[Melanie added the comment (in brackets and italics above) about the
dead and righteous who will appear to be brought back to life. In a
letter to Abbé Combe, the editor of the 1904 edition of Le Secret De
Melanie, she states that she made this comment'according to the Vision
which I had in the moment that the very Blessed Virgin was speaking of
the resurrection of the dead.' (Le Secret De Melanie, p. 29-30).]
13. 'The Vicar of my Son will have much to suffer, because for a time
the Church will be delivered over to great persecutions: this will be the
time of darkness; the Church will have a frightful crisis.'
14. 'The holy faith of God being forgotten, each individual will want to
be guided by himself and to be superior to his peers. Civil and
ecclesiastical powers will be abolished, all order and all justice will be
trampled underfoot; one will see only homicides, hatred, jealousy, lying
and discord, without love for country, or for family.'
15. 'The holy Father will suffer much. I will be with him until the end to
receive his sacrifice.'
16. 'The wicked will make an attempt several times on his life without
power to do harm to his days; but neither he, nor his successor [who
will not reign long,] will see the triumph of the Church of God.'
17. 'Civil rulers will have all one same design which will be to abolish,
and to make disappear all religious principle, in order to make way for
materialism, atheism, spiritualism and all kinds of vices.'
18. 'In the year 1865, the abomination will be seen in holy places; in
convents, the flowers of the Church will be decayed and the demon will
make himself as the king of hearts. May those who are at the head of
religious communities keep themselves on guard for persons whom they
must receive, because the demon will use of all his malice in order to
introduce into religious orders persons devoted to sin, for disorders and
the love of carnal pleasures will be spread by all the earth.'
19. 'France, Italy, Spain and England will be in war; blood will flow in
the streets; Frenchman will fight with Frenchman, Italian with Italian;
subsequently there will be a general war which will be appalling. For a
time, God will no longer be mindful of France or Italy, because the
Gospel of Jesus Christ is no longer known. The wicked will deploy all
their malice; they will kill themselves, they will massacre themselves
mutually even in the houses.'
20. 'At the first stroke of His lightning sword, the mountains and the
whole of nature will tremble with terror, because the disorders and the
crimes of men pierce the vault of the heavens. Paris will be burned and
Marseilles engulfed; several great cities will be shaken and engulfed by
earthquakes: it will be believed that all is lost: only homicides will be
seen, only the noise of weapons and blasphemies will be heard. The just
will suffer much; their prayers, their penances and their tears will climb
even up to heaven and all the people of God will ask for forgiveness and
mercy, and will ask for my help and my intercession. Then Jesus Christ
by an act of His justice and of His great mercy for the just, will
command to His angels that all His enemies be put to death. All at once
the persecutors of the Church of Jesus Christ and all men devoted to sin
will perish, and the earth will become like a desert. Then peace, the
reconciliation of God with men will be made; Jesus Christ will be served,
adored and glorified; charity will flower everywhere. The new kings will
be the right arm of the holy Church, which will be strong, humble,
pious, poor, zealous and imitator of the virtues of Jesus Christ. The
Gospel will be preached everywhere and men will make great progress
in the faith, because there will be unity among the workers of Jesus
Christ and because men will live in the fear of God.'
21. 'This peace among men will not be long; 25 years of abundant
harvests will make them forget that the sins of men are the cause of all
the pains which come upon the earth.'
22. 'A forerunner of the antichrist with his troops from several nations
will fight against the true Christ, the only Savior of the world; he will
spill much blood, and will want to annihilate the worship of God in order
to make himself be looked upon as a God.'
23. 'The earth will be struck all kinds of plagues [in addition to
pestilence and famine which will be general]; there will be wars until the
last war, which will then be made by the ten kings of the antichrist,
which kings will have all one same design and will be the only ones who
will rule the world. Before these arrive, there will be a type of false
peace in the world; one will think only about amusing oneself; the
wicked will deliver themselves over to all kinds of sin, but the children of
the holy Church, the children of the faith, my true imitators, will grow in
the love of God and in the virtues which are dear to me. Happy the
humble souls guided by the Holy Spirit! I will fight with them until they
arrive at the fullness of the age.'
24. 'Nature is asking for vengeance for men, and she shudders with
terror in waiting for that which must come upon the earth soiled with
25. 'Tremble, earth and you who make profession of serving Jesus
Christ and who on the inside you adore yourselves, tremble; for God is
going to deliver you over to His enemy, because the holy places are in
corruption; many convents are no longer houses of God, but the
pastures of Asmodeas and his sort.'
26. 'It will be during this time that the antichrist will be born of a
Hebrew religious, of a false Virgin who will have communication with the
old serpent, the master of impurity; his father will be Bishop; at birth,
he will vomit blasphemies, he will have teeth; in a word, this will be the
devil incarnate; he will let out frightening cries, he will perform
wonders, he will nourish himself only on impurities. He will have
brothers who, although they will not be like him demons incarnate, will
be children of evil; at 12 years, they will make themselves noticed by
their brilliant victories which they will win; soon, they will each be at the
head of armies, assisted by the legions of hell.'
[Melanie also commented on this point, as follows: 'It is said that the
antichrist will be the devil incarnate, that is to say that he will be
entirely possessed. I have seen that the good God does not permit the
demon to personally incarnate himself in a human soul and body, but
that the demon under a visible form will have familiar relations with the
parents of the antichrist, and that they will consecrate him to his
service from the first moment of his existence.' (Le Secret De Melanie,
p. 55). She wrote this comment at the end of her handwritten copy of
the secret, the one which she gave to Abbé Combe for the 1904 edition
of Le Secret De Melanie.]
27. 'The seasons will be changed, the earth will produce only bad fruits,
the stars will lose their regular movements, the moon will reflect only a
feeble reddish light; water and fire will give to the globe of the earth
convulsive movements and horrible earthquakes which will cause to be
engulfed mountains, cities [etc.].'
[The editor of the 1904 edition adds the following note concerning this
paragraph: 'I have from Melanie that this etc. is not made part of the
text. The Blessed Virgin showed her other cataclysms without naming
them and without pronouncing the word etc. ' (Le Secret De Melanie,
28. 'Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the antichrist.'
29. 'The demons of the air with the antichrist will perform great
wonders on the earth and in the air, and men will corrupt themselves
more and more. God will have care of His faithful servants and men of
good will; the Gospel will be preached everywhere, all peoples and all
nations will have knowledge of the truth!'
30. 'I address a pressing appeal to the earth: I call upon the true
disciples of God living and reigning in the heavens; I call upon the true
imitators of Christ made man, the only and true savior of men; I call
upon my children, my true devotees, those who have given themselves
to me so that I may guide them to my divine Son, those whom I carry
so to speak in my arms, those who have lived by my spirit; finally I call
upon the Apostles of the last times, the faithful disciples of Jesus Christ
who have lived in a contempt for the world and for themselves, in
poverty and in humility, in contempt 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 that they go out and come to enlighten
the earth. Go, and show yourselves as my dear children; I am with you
and in you, provided that your faith be the light which enlightens you in
these days of woe. May your zeal render you like the starving for the
glory and honor of Jesus Christ. Fight, children of light, you the small
number who can see; for behold the time of times, the end of ends.'
31. 'The Church will be eclipsed, the world will be in consternation. But
behold Enoch and Elie filled with the Spirit of God; they will preach with
the strength of God, and men of good will will believe in God, and many
souls will be consoled; they will make great progress by the virtue of
the Holy Spirit and will condemn the devilish errors of the antichrist.'
[Abbé Combe, the editor of the 1904 edition, adds the following note
after this paragraph. 'I have from Melanie that the Church will be
eclipsed in this sense, that 1) one will not know which is the true pope;
2) for a time: the holy Sacrifice will cease to be offered in churches, and
also in houses: so there will be no more public worship. But she saw
that yet the holy Sacrifice would not cease: it would be offered in caves,
in tunnels, in barns and in alcoves.']
32. 'Woe to the inhabitants of the earth! there will be bloody wars and
famines; pestilences and contagious diseases; there will be rains of a
dreadful hail of animals, thunders which will shake cities, earthquakes
which will engulf countries; voices will be heard in the air, men will beat
their head against the walls, they will call upon death, and on another
side death will be their torture; blood will flow on all sides. Who will be
able to overcome, if God does not shorten the time of the ordeal? By
the blood, the tears and the prayers of the just, God will let Himself be
swayed, Enoch and Elie will be put to death; pagan Rome will disappear;
fire from Heaven will fall and will consume three cities; all the universe
will be struck with terror, and many will let themselves be misled
because they have not adored the true Christ living among them. It is
time; the sun darkens; faith alone will live.'
33. 'Behold the time; the abyss opens. Behold the king of kings of
darkness. Behold the beast with his subjects, calling himself the savior
of the world. He will raise himself up with pride into the air in order to
go even up to heaven; he will be smothered by the breath of the holy
Archangel Michael. He will fall, and the earth which for three days will
be in continual evolutions, will open its bosom full of fire; he will be
plunged for ever with all his own into the eternal chasms of hell. Then
water and fire will purify the earth and will consume all the works of the
pride of men, and all will be renewed: God will be served and glorified.'
