One hundred and seventy-six years ago, in the European autumn of 1846, two children from the small rural village of La Salette, nestled in the southeastern Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region of France, received a remarkable Marian apparition.

The globe of light then opened like a flower, and from within, the most beautiful Lady appeared, seated upon a pile of stones placed on top of one another, exactly like those commonly made by rural children at that time. Her head in Her hands, Her elbows on Her knees, She sobbed with inconsolable grief. Arising from Her natural throne, She called to the youngsters: “Come, my children, do not be afraid: I am here to proclaim great news to you.”

At first, the beautiful Lady spoke in French, reproaching humanity as a whole for breaking the divine laws while misunderstanding and even cursing the name of Jesus Christ for the disasters resulting from their own severe transgressions: “If the harvest is spoiled, it is your own fault. I warned you last year with the potatoes. You paid no heed. On the contrary, when you found the potatoes had spoiled, you swore and you included the name of my Son. They will continue to go bad; and by Christmas this year there will be none left.”

Our Lady then continued in such a way as to be heard by both the shepherds: “If they are converted, the stones and rocks will change into mounds of wheat, and the potatoes will be self-sown in the land.”

Recently, our beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai also recalled the people’s ungratefulness towards Lord Jesus Christ’s selfless sacrifice to uplift humankind. “They cannot understand that there is something else within that frame of a human body of a Master. Inside there is something precious, something powerful, something that can lift them up to the sky, beyond the Sun, beyond all the galaxies. To bring them forever happiness, bliss, and peace. That is difficult. That’s why Jesus had to be nailed on the cross. So painful, humiliated. And even then, nowadays, His so-called top representative used that to humiliate Him. How dare anybody still do that? Not only he doesn’t respect and doesn’t feel grateful for the Lord’s sacrifice to uplift humankind. Even though not all of them went to Heaven, but humanity has been uplifted to some degree by the presence of Lord Jesus, or any other Master.”
