Drive by Prayers– Advent Day 3

Remember, our Lady of LaSalette,
true Mother of Sorrows, the tears which
thou didst shed for me on Calvary;
be mindful also of the unceasing
care which thou dost exercise to
shield me from the justice of God;
and consider whether thou canst
now abandon thy child for
whom thou hast done
so much.
Inspired by this consoling thought,
I come to cast myself at
thy feet, in spite of my infidelity
and ingratitude.  Reject
not my prayer, O virgin
of reconciliation, convert me, obtain
for me the grace to love
Jesus Christ above
all things and to console
thee too by living a holy
life, in order that one day
I may be able to see thee in heaven.
Our Lady of LaSalette, Reconciler
of sinners, pray without ceasing
for us who have recourse to thee.

More about Our Lady of La Salette

On September 19, 1846, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to Maximin Giraud and Melanie Calvat on the mountain of La Salette, France. Melanie and Maximin came from the town of Corps near Grenoble, in a poor part of south-eastern France. Maximin Giraud was eleven years old at the time and Melanie Calvat fourteen. On September 19th, they were looking after their employer’s cattle, high up on the pasture above La Salette, a village near Corps, when they saw a wonderful apparition of Mary.

A globe of light opened to reveal a resplendent woman seated on a stone with her head in her hands. The children later described her as very tall and beautiful, wearing a long, white, pearl studded, sleeved dress, and a white shawl, with some sort of tiara or crown on her head. Hanging from her neck was a large crucifix adorned with a small hammer and pincers, with a brilliantly shining figure of Christ on it. Speaking tearfully, she delivered the below message. After a thorough investigation by the Catholic Church, the account was approved for the faithful and published in Lecce on November 15, 1879 with the imprimatur of Bishop Zola of Lecce.
