Hallowed be...

Every time we recite the Lord’s Prayer, we say, Hallowed be thy name. This is raised as a concern by Our Lady of La Salette, in two distinct contexts. First she expresses her sadness at the abuse of her Son’s name. Later, she encourages the children to say at least an Our Father and a Hail Mary in their night and morning prayers.

The Lenten Royal Road

There is no lesson the human heart learns more poorly and forgets so readily as the lesson of penance and its place in the Divine economy of redemption. In our contemporary world, with a cult that is greater slavery than any religious system could ever be, we are all making a god of pleasure and comfort, and go to infinite pains in trying to avert from our lives the saving salt of suffering and self-denial, penance and sacrifice.

The Importance of Light

The Holy Saturday liturgy begins with the quasi yin-yang transition from darkness and light. In many parishes enkindling the "new fire" consists of igniting a few small sticks of highly combustible wood, and then making sure the fire snuffed out as soon as the paschal candle is lit.

During my years ministering to the people of Malaimbandy, Madagascar, the Easter Vigil's "new fire" was more consistent. . .

Using the Lord’s Name in Vain

Mary said: “Those who drive the carts cannot swear without introducing the name of my Son.”

After deploring her people's profanation of the Lord's Day, Mary in her discourse at La Salette signals out another evil that is universal in our day, "the profanation of his Sacred Name." "These are the two things," she says, "which make the arm of my Son so heavy."

Pope: It’s blasphemy to commit crimes in God’s Name

“The religious person knows that among the greatest blasphemies is to invoke God as the justification for one’s own sins and crimes,” the Pope said. “To invoke him in order to justify killing, mass murder, enslavement, exploitation in whatever form, oppression and persecution of individuals and entire populations… The religious person knows that God is the Holy One, and that no one can claim to use his name in order to perpetrate evil.”

The Glory of Christ Crucified

For Jews demand signs and Greeks look for wisdom, but we proclaim Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those who are called, Jews and Greeks alike, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength” (1 Corinthians 1: 22-25).

The Face of the Reconciler, is to share the message and meaning of the La Salette Apparition for ordinary Christians with practical application to their daily lives. It is considered by many Marian scholars as the most biblical of recent Apparitions and touches upon the basics of the Christian life: an active faith, daily prayer, the importance of the Eucharist, reverence for the Name of Jesus, use of the Lenten habits of faith and finally the call to share her message and that of her Son with all God’s people.

Say "No" to Corruption

La Salette : A Message and A Mission
spiral border

La Salette was an unknown hamlet lost in one of those giant crevices of the French Alps. Early on September 19, 1846, the two children climb the slopes of the Mount Sous-Les-Baisses, each urging four cows up the mountain. Contrary to their habits, the two children lay down on the grass and fell asleep. The September sun was relaxing and the sky was cloudless. The chattering brook highlighted the mountain stillness. These were quiet moments.

Our Community: The Missionaries of Our Lady of La Salette are deeply rooted in the Apparition of Our Lady of La Salette which occurred near the hamlet of La Salette in southeastern France on Sept. 19, 1846. The Missionaries were founded in 1852 by Bp. Philbert de Bruillard, Bishop of Grenoble, France, and presently serve in some 25 countries.

Our Province: The Province of Mary, Mother of the Americas, was founded in 2000 AD and is one of several provinces in the congregation. The members of this Province serve mainly in the countries of Canada, the United States and the Region of Argentina/Bolivia.

Our Mission: Our La Salette ministry of reconciliation responds to the broad vision given by Mary at La Salette as well as in response to the needs of the Church. As reconcilers, we together with the laity take seriously Mary’s mandate: “You will make (Mary’s) message known to all (her) people.”
