What could be more charming than the story of two unlettered shepherd children suddenly meeting the Blessed Virgin Mary high in the alpine meadows of their native France? And yet, what could be more sobering than the message that the Mother of God uttered to these children, and through them to the world?
Maximin s first words to Melanie, upon seeing the bright and shining woman seated on a rock were, Keep your stick; I will take care of mine; if it does anything to us I will give it a good knock. Twelve years after this visitation Our Lady appeared again to some unlettered villagers in a little town named Knock, in Ireland. The humorous irony of heaven can be delightful at times. At Knock she was silent, but at La Salette she cried, and she spoke to her children. Some listened, and some did not. Many today still do not hear her voice or believe the continuous miracles.
Now you have the opportunity to hear the story as told by one who carries the authority of the Church; one who heard it from the children themselves and the other observers of the events of those days over 150 years ago that shook France and the world, and which continue to affect the world through the decades, even unto the 21st century.
