Our Lady of La Salette
Our Lady appeared
In La Salette
the french Alps
The sun her mantle
On french soil
‘Come nearer my children’
A call for conversion
The true following of her Son
In humility, service and virtue
Anchored in the message of salvation
Our Lady of La Salette,
true mother of Sorrows,
the tears you shed for us on Calvary.
also the care you have taken to keep us faithful to Christ, your Son.
Having done so much for your children,
you will not now abandon us.
Comforted by this consoling thought,
we come to you pleading,
despite our infidelities and ingratitude.
Virgin of Reconciliation,
do not reject our prayers, but intercede for us,
obtain for us the grace to love Jesus above all else.
May we console you by living a holy life
and so come to share the eternal life Christ gained by His cross.
