Part I of IIISeptember 19, 1846APPARITION OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN ON THE MOUNTAIN OF LA SALETTE
- Only the witness herself, Melanie, can, along with Maximin, give an account of the apparition. After giving it by word of mouth an incalculable number of times, she decided to write it all down in 1878. It was published at Lecce on the 15th of November 1879 with the "Imprimatur" of Bishop Zola and reprinted "ne varietur" at Lyons in 1904, a few months before Melanie's death. This slim booklet is now a rarity. The text is followed exactly here. ACKNOWLEDGMENTSThe original texts of the Message and Secret of La Salette, approved by the Catholic Church, are published here in their entirety. In our turn, we authorize all people, journalist, editor or association to republish this faithfully in whole or in part. It is essential that these prophetic messages be widespread more than ever in all of the world and as quickly as possible. It is an order from the Mother of God. "Well My children, you will pass it on to all of My people." We are counting on the support and initiative of all people of good will to attain our goal. We ask Our Lady's blessings on this apostolate and its supporters.
