THE SECRET OF LA SALETTE

EVEALED BY OUR LADY TO HER ELECTED SEERS MAXIMIN GIRAUD AND MELANIE CALVAT

APARIÇÃO DE LA SALETTE AOS PASTORINHOS MAXIMINO E MELANIE
IN LA SALETTE, FRANCE, SEPTEMBER, 19, 1846




'Melanie, what I am going to tell you now will not always be secret.
You will be allowed to publish it in 1858.'

. 'The priests, ministers of my Son, the priests, by their bad life, by
ir irreverences and their impiety in celebrating the holy mysteries, by e of money, love of honor 
and of pleasures, the priests have become esspools of impurity. Yes, the priests are asking for 
vengeance, and engeance is suspended over their heads. Woe to the priests and to ersons consecrated 
to God, who by their infidelities and their bad life







crucifying anew my Son! The sins of persons consecrated to God cry t 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 afflictions combined.'

'The leaders, the guides of the people of God have neglected prayer d penance, and the demon has 
obscured their intelligence; they have come 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 visions among 
rulers, in all societies and in all families; physical and oral 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 reatest events; one must expect 
to be ruled with an iron rod and to
drink the chalice of the wrath of God.'

. 'May the Vicar of my Son, the sovereign Pontiff Pius IX, no longer
ve 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.'

. 'May he be wary of Napoleon; his heart is double, and when he will nt to be at the same time Pope 
and emperor, soon God will withdraw m him: he is this eagle who, wanting always to raise himself 
up, will ll on the sword which he wanted to use in order to force the peoples
to raise him up.'

. 'Italy will be punished for her ambition in wanting to shake off the ke 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 ests, the religious will be hunted; they will be made to die, and to die ruel 
death. Several will abandon the faith, and the number of priests
d religious who will separate themselves from the true religion will be reat; 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.'

1. 'In the year 1864, Lucifer with a great number of demons will be leashed from hell; they will 
abolish the faith little by little and even in ersons consecrated to God; they will blind them in 
such a way that rring a particular grace these persons will take on the spirit of these
d 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
vice of God; they will have a very great power over nature: there will e churches to serve these 
spirits. Some persons will be transported om one place to another by these bad spirits and even 
some priests, ecause 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
d. 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 arth, so as to better mislead men: these so-called 
resurrected dead,
o will be nothing other than the demon under these appearances, will reach another Gospel contrary 
to the one of the true Christ Jesus,
enying the existence of heaven, or they may also be the souls of the mned. 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 pon riches, to safeguard their authority and 
to dominate with pride.'

elanie added the comment (in brackets and italics above) about the dead and righteous who will 
appear to be brought back to life. In a etter to Abbé Combe, the editor of the 1904 edition of Le 
Secret De lanie, she states that she made this comment'according to the Vision ich 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).]

3. 'The Vicar of my Son will have much to suffer, because for a time
e Church will be delivered over to great persecutions: this will be the time of darkness; the 
Church will have a frightful crisis.'

4. '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
cclesiastical powers will be abolished, all order and all justice will be mpled underfoot; one will 
see only homicides, hatred, jealousy, lying
and discord, without love for country, or for family.'







. 'The holy Father will suffer much. I will be with him until the end to receive his sacrifice.'

6. 'The wicked will make an attempt several times on his life without ower 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.'

7. 'Civil rulers will have all one same design which will be to abolish, nd to make disappear all 
religious principle, in order to make way for materialism, atheism, spiritualism and all kinds of 
vices.'

8. 'In the year 1865, the abomination will be seen in holy places; in nvents, the flowers of the 
Church will be decayed and the demon will ake himself as the king of hearts. May those who are at 
the head of gious communities keep themselves on guard for persons whom they ust receive, because 
the demon will use of all his malice in order to roduce into religious orders persons devoted to 
sin, for disorders and
the love of carnal pleasures will be spread by all the earth.'

9. 'France, Italy, Spain and England will be in war; blood will flow in e streets; Frenchman will 
fight with Frenchman, Italian with Italian; bsequently 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 ospel of Jesus 
Christ is no longer known. The wicked will deploy all heir malice; they will kill themselves, they 
will massacre themselves
mutually even in the houses.'

0. 'At the first stroke of His lightning sword, the mountains and the hole of nature will tremble 
with terror, because the disorders and the mes of men pierce the vault of the heavens. Paris will 
be burned and rseilles engulfed; several great cities will be shaken and engulfed by arthquakes: it 
will be believed that all is lost: only homicides will be
n, only the noise of weapons and blasphemies will be heard. The just l suffer much; their prayers, 
their penances and their tears will climb en up to heaven and all the people of God will ask for 
forgiveness and ercy, 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 mmand to His angels that all His 
enemies be put to death. All at once
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 onciliation of God with men will be made; Jesus Christ 
will be served, ored 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 ospel will be preached everywhere and men will make great progress







n 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 rvests will make them forget that 
the sins of men are the cause of all
the pains which come upon the earth.'

2. 'A forerunner of the antichrist with his troops from several nations ill fight against the true 
Christ, the only Savior of the world; he will
ll 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 tilence and famine which will be 
general]; there will be wars until the ast war, which will then be made by the ten kings of the 
antichrist,
ich 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
ked will deliver themselves over to all kinds of sin, but the children of 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 mble 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 error in waiting for that which 
must come upon the earth soiled with crimes.'

25. 'Tremble, earth and you who make profession of serving Jesus rist and who on the inside you 
adore yourselves, tremble; for God is oing 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
rew religious, of a false Virgin who will have communication with the d serpent, the master of 
impurity; his father will be Bishop; at birth, 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
others who, although they will not be like him demons incarnate, will e children of evil; at 12 
years, they will make themselves noticed by
ir 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 tirely possessed. I have seen that the good God does not 
permit the emon to personally incarnate himself in a human soul and body, but
t the demon under a visible form will have familiar relations with the parents of the antichrist, 
and that they will consecrate him to his rvice from the first moment of his existence.' (Le Secret 
De Melanie,
55). She wrote this comment at the end of her handwritten copy of e secret, the one which she gave 
to Abbé Combe for the 1904 edition
of Le Secret De Melanie.]

. 'The seasons will be changed, the earth will produce only bad fruits, e stars will lose their 
regular movements, the moon will reflect only a eeble reddish light; water and fire will give to 
the globe of the earth nvulsive movements and horrible earthquakes which will cause to be
engulfed mountains, cities [etc.].'

he editor of the 1904 edition adds the following note concerning this aragraph: 'I have from 
Melanie that this etc. is not made part of the xt. The Blessed Virgin showed her other cataclysms 
without naming hem and without pronouncing the word etc. ' (Le Secret De Melanie,
p.57.)]

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 onders on the earth and in the 
air, and men will corrupt themselves ore and more. God will have care of His faithful servants and 
men of ood 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 sciples of God living and 
reigning in the heavens; I call upon the true mitators of Christ made man, the only and true savior 
of men; I call on my children, my true devotees, those who have given themselves
me so that I may guide them to my divine Son, those whom I carry to speak in my arms, those who 
have lived by my spirit; finally I call on 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 overty and in 
humility, in contempt and in silence, in prayer and in
mortification, in chastity and in union with God, in suffering and nown to the world. It is time 
that they go out and come to enlighten
e earth. Go, and show yourselves as my dear children; I am with you d in you, provided that your 
faith be the light which enlightens you in hese days of woe. May your zeal render you like the 
starving for the







lory and honor of Jesus Christ. Fight, children of light, you the small umber who can see; for 
behold the time of times, the end of ends.'

. 'The Church will be eclipsed, the world will be in consternation. But hold Enoch and Elie filled 
with the Spirit of God; they will preach with strength of God, and men of good will will believe in 
God, and many
ouls will be consoled; they will make great progress by the virtue of he 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 lipsed in this sense, that 1) one will not know which is the 
true pope; for a time: the holy Sacrifice will cease to be offered in churches, and lso in houses: 
so there will be no more public worship. But she saw
t yet the holy Sacrifice would not cease: it would be offered in caves, in tunnels, in barns and in 
alcoves.']

2. 'Woe to the inhabitants of the earth! there will be bloody wars and mines; pestilences and 
contagious diseases; there will be rains of a eadful hail of animals, thunders which will shake 
cities, earthquakes ich will engulf countries; voices will be heard in the air, men will beat eir 
head against the walls, they will call upon death, and on another
e death will be their torture; blood will flow on all sides. Who will be ble to overcome, if God 
does not shorten the time of the ordeal? By
e blood, the tears and the prayers of the just, God will let Himself be ayed, Enoch and Elie will 
be put to death; pagan Rome will disappear; e from Heaven will fall and will consume three cities; 
all the universe
will be struck with terror, and many will let themselves be misled ecause 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 rkness. Behold the beast with 
his subjects, calling himself the savior the world. He will raise himself up with pride into the 
air in order to
o even up to heaven; he will be smothered by the breath of the holy rchangel Michael. He will fall, 
and the earth which for three days will e in continual evolutions, will open its bosom full of 
fire; he will be unged for ever with all his own into the eternal chasms of hell. Then
ter and fire will purify the earth and will consume all the works of the de of men, and all will be 
renewed: God will be served and glorified.'
