The message of La Salette
Part 1: I believe this part of the message is general. The part 1 related to the 20th Century and 19th Century. The part 1 also relates to nowadays. The part 1 describes what will come.
Part 2: I believe this part of the message has started with the year 1865 and the Part 2 will end with the arrival of Jesus Christ.
◊ ♦ ◊ „Mélanie, what I am going to tell you now will not always be a secret; you can publish it in 1858. Priests, my Son’s ministers, priests, by their evil life, by their irreverences and their impiety in celebrating the holy mysteries, love of money, love of honor and pleasures, priests have become sewers of impurity. Yes, priests call forth vengeance, and vengeance is suspended over their heads. Woe to priests, and to persons consecrated to God, who by their infidelities and their evil life are crucifying my son anew! The sins of persons consecrated to God cry to heaven and call for vengeance, and now here is vengeance at their very doors, for no longer is anyone found to beg mercy and pardon for the people; there are no more generous souls, there is now no one worthy of offering the spotless Victim to the Eternal on the worlds behalf. …
◊ ♦ ◊ … „God will strike in an unparalleled manner. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth! God will exhaust His anger, and no one will be able to escape so many evils at once. The heads, the leaders of the people of God, have neglected prayer and penance, and the devil has darkened their minds; they have become those wandering stars which the ancient devil will drag with his tail to destruction. God will permit the ancient serpent to sow divisions among rulers, in all societies and in all families; both physical and moral punishments will be suffered. God will abandon men to themselves and will send chastisements one after the other for over 35 years. …
Exactly 33 years to the day prior to the great Miracle of the Sun in Fatima, that is, on October 13, 1884, Pope Leo XIII had a remarkable vision. When the aged Pontiff had finished celebrating Mass in his private Vatican Chapel, attended by a few Cardinals and members of the Vatican staff, he suddenly stopped at the foot of the altar. He stood there for about 10 minutes, as if in a trance, his face ashen white. Then, going immediately from the Chapel to his office, he composed the prayer to St. Michael, with instructions it be said after all Low Masses everywhere. When asked what had happened, he explained that, as he was about to leave the foot of the altar, he suddenly heard voices – two voices, one kind and gentle, the other guttural and harsh. They seemed to come from near the tabernacle. Source: http://www.stjosephschurch.net/leoxiii.htm As he listened, he heard the following conversation:
The guttural voice, the voice of Satan in his pride, boasted to Our Lord:
“I can destroy your Church.”
The gentle voice of Our Lord:
“You can? Then go ahead and do so.”
“To do so, I need more time and more power.”
“How much time? How much power?
“75 to 100 years, and a greater power over those
who will give themselves over to my service.”
“You have the time, you will have the power.
Do with them what you will.”
75 to 100 years, from October 1884 to October 1984. There were many wars, two terrible world wars with 80 million dead. The Jews were executed by the SS. The USA dropped two nuclear bombs (Hiroshima and Nagasaki). The Cold War (The arms race) between USA and Russia: The Cuban missile crisis in 1962. A nuclear war was possible between USA and Russia. The Vietnam War.
The greater power ended on 13. October 1984. And about 5 month later. The Perestroika changed the Soviet Union in March 1985. ♦ Wikipedia: Perestroika was a political movement within the Communist Party of the Soviet Union during 1980s, widely associated with the Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev. Its literal meaning is “restructuring”, referring to the restructuring of the Soviet political and economic system. Perestroika is often argued to be a cause of the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the revolutions of 1989 in Eastern Europe, and the end of the Cold War. … After Mikhail Gorbachev took the office of General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union in March 1985, he began a series of political reforms that were resisted by many established members of the communist party. However, Gorbachev appealed over the heads of the party to the people and called for demokratizatsiya (democratization).http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perestroika
◊ ♦ ◊ … „Society is on the very eve of most terrible scourges and greatest events; one must expect to be governed by a rod of iron and to drink the chalice of God’s wrath. „Let not my Son’s Vicar, the Sovereign Pontiff Pius IX leave Rome after the year 1859; but let him be steadfast and generous, let him do battle with the weapons of faith and love; I shall be with him. „Let him beware of Napoleon; his heart is double, and when he will want to be both Pope and emperor at the same time, God will soon withdraw from him; he is that eagle who, desiring always to rise, will fall on the sword he wanted to use to force the peoples to exalt him. „Italy will be punished for its ambition in wanting to shake of the yoke of the Lord of lords; thus she will be handed over to war; blood will flow on all sides; Churches will be closed or desecrated; priests, religious will be driven out; they will be put to death, and to a cruel death. Many will abandon the faith, and the number of priests and religious who will separate themselves from the true religion will be great; even Bishops will be found among these persons. „Let the Pope beware of miracle workers, for the time has come for the most astonishing wonders to take place on the earth and in the air. …
◊ ♦ ◊ … „In the year 1864 Lucifer, together with a great number of devils, will be loosed from hell; little by little they will abolish the faith, and that even in persons consecrated to God; they will so blind them, that without a special grace, these persons will take on the spirit of these evil angels; a number of religious houses will lose the faith entirely and cause many souls to be damned. …
◊ ♦ ◊ … „Bad books will abound over the earth, and the spirits of darkness will everywhere spread universal relaxation in everything concerning God’s service: they will have very great power over nature; there will be churches to serve these spirits. People will be transported form one place to another by these evil spirits, and even priests, because they will not have lived by the good spirit of the gospel, which is a spirit of humility, charity and zeal for the glory of God. The dead and the just will be made to rise.“ [Mélanie interpolated here: "That is to say, these dead will assume the prospect of righteous souls who once lived on earth, in order to seduce men more easily; these so-called resurrected dead, who will be nothing other than the devil under these faces, will preach another Gospel contrary to that of the true Christ Jesus, denying the existence of heaven, if these be not in fact the souls of the damned. All these souls will appear joined to their bodies."] „There will be extraordinary wonders every place because the true faith has been extinguished and false light illumines the world. Woe to the princes of the church who will be occupied only with piling up riches upon riches, with guarding their authority and lording with pride! …
♦ 2 Timothy 4,1 I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who willjudge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingly power:2 proclaim the word; be persistent whether it is convenient or inconvenient; convince, reprimand, encourage through all patience and teaching. 3 For the time will come when people will not tolerate sound doctrine but, following their own desires and insatiable curiosity, will accumulate teachers 4 and will stop listening to the truth and will be diverted to myths.
◊ ♦ ◊ … „My Son’s Vicar will have much to suffer, because for a time the Church will be handed over to great persecutions: it will be the time of darkness; the Church will undergo a frightful crisis. „With God’s holy faith forgotten, each individual will want to direct himself and rise above his peers. Civil and ecclesiastical authority will be abolished , all order and justice will be trampled underfoot. Only murders, hatred, jealousy, lying and discord will be seen, with no love of country or family. „The Holy Father will suffer greatly. I shall be with him till the end to receive his sacrifice. „The wicked will make a number of attempts on his life without being able to harm him; but neither he nor his successor will see the triumph of God’s Church. …
Interpretation („The wicked will make a number of attempts on his life without being able to harm him; but neither he): Pope John Paul II. survived an assassination. Wikipedia: As he entered St. Peter’s Square to address an audience on 13 May 1981, John Paul II was shot and critically wounded by Mehmet Ali Ağca,a trained expert Turkish gunman who was a member of the militant fascist group Grey Wolves. The assassin used a Browning 9 mm semi-automatic pistol, striking him in the abdomen and perforating his colon and small intestine multiple times. … A second assassination attempt took place on 12 May 1982, just a day before the anniversary of the first attempt on his life, in Fátima, Portugal when a man tried to stab John Paul II with a bayonet. He was stopped by security guards, although Stanisław Cardinal Dziwisz later claimed that John Paul II had been injured during the attempt but managed to hide a non-life threatening wound. … Pope John Paul II was one of the targets of the Al-Qaeda-funded Operation Bojinka during a visit to the Philippines in 1995. The first plan was to kill Pope John Paul II when he visited the Philippines during the World Youth Day 1995 celebrations. On 15 January 1995, a suicide bomber would dress up as a priest, while John Paul II passed in his motorcade on his way to the San Carlos Seminary in Makati City. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pope_John_Paul_II#Assassination_attempts

◊ ♦ ◊ … „Civil governments will all have the same objective, which will be to abolish and make every religious principle disappear, to make way for materialism, atheism, spiritism and vices of all kinds.
Some religious principles were abolished by the civil governments in some European countries as the abortion ban. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abortion
The bible says that the birth starts with the conception because the mother of Samson was not allowed to drink wine, strong drink and eat unclean. While she was being pregnant she was not being allowed to drink wine. Conclusion: Samson was born when his mother conceived him. See Judges 13,7 - See Judges 13,5  Consecrated: in Hebrew, nazir. Samson therefore was for life to be under the nazirite vow, which obliged him to abstain from drinking wine or having his hair cut; See Numbers 6,2-8. . ♦ Numbers 6,1 The LORD said to Moses: 2 “Speak to the Israelites and tell them: When a man (or a woman) solemnly takes the nazirite vow to dedicate himself to the LORD, 3 he shall abstain from wine and strong drink; he may neither drink wine vinegar, other vinegar, of any kind of grape juice, nor eat either fresh or dried grapes. 4 As long as he is a nazirite he shall not eat anything of the produce of the vine; not even unripe grapes or grapeskins. ♦ Judges 13, 3 An angel of the LORD appeared to the woman and said to her, “Though you are barren and have had no children, yet you will conceive and bear a son. 4 Now, then, be careful to take no wine or strong drink and to eat nothing unclean. 5 As for the son you will conceive and bear, no razor shall touch his head, for this boy is to be consecrated to God from the womb. It is he who will begin the deliverance of Israel from the power of the Philistines.” … 7 But he said to me, ‘You will be with child and will bear a son. So take neither wine nor strong drink, and eat nothing unclean. For the boy shall be consecrated to God from the womb, until the day of his death.’” The Gospel says that the birth starts with the conception because John the Baptist leaped in the womb of Elizabeth. ♦ Luke 1,39 During those days Mary set out and traveled to the hill country in haste to a town of Judah, 40 where she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. 41 When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the infant leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth, filled with the holy Spirit, 42 cried out in a loud voice and said, “Most blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. 43 And how does this happen to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44 For at the moment the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy.
I believe this part of the message has started with the year 1865 and the Part 2 will end with the arrival of Jesus Christ.
◊ ♦ ◊ … „In the year 1865, the abomination will be seen in the holy places; in the convents the flowers of the Church will putrefy, and the devil will establish himself as king of all hearts. Let those who are at the head of religious communities be on their guard concerning the persons they are to receive, because the devil will use all his malice to introduce into religious orders persons given to sin, for disorders and love of carnal pleasures will be widespread over the whole earth. ….
◊ ♦ ◊ … „France, Italy, Spain and England will be at war, blood will flow in the streets; Frenchmen will fight Frenchmen, Italian with Italian; then there will be A GENERAL WAR which will be appalling. For some time God will no longer remember France or Italy, because the Gospel of Jesus Christ is no longer known. The wicked will unleash all their malice; even in homes there will be killing and mutual massacres. …
Interpretation: There were many colonial wars and other wars from 1865 to 1914. England, Italy, Spain and France were involved.
The general war was the World War 1. ♦ Wikpedia: World War I (WWI), which was predominantly called the World War or the Great War from its occurrence until 1939, and the First World War or World War I thereafter,was a major war centred in Europe that began on 28 July 1914 and lasted until 11 November 1918. It involved all the world’s great powers,which were assembled in two opposing alliances: the Allies (centred around the Triple Entente) and the Central Powers (originally centred around the Triple Alliance).More than 70 million military personnel, including 60 million Europeans, were mobilised in one of the largest wars in history. More than 9 million combatants were killed, largely because of great technological advances in firepower without corresponding advances in mobility. It was the sixth deadliest conflict in world history http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_War_I
◊ ♦ ◊ … „With the first lightning blow of His sword, the mountains and all nature will tremble with dread, because the disorders and crimes of men are piercing the vault of the heavens. Paris will be burned and Marseilles swallowed up; a number of large cities will be shattered and swallowed by earthquakes; all will seem lost; only murders will be seen, the clash of arms and blasphemies heard. The righteous will suffer greatly; their prayers, their penances and their tears will rise to heaven and all God’s people will ask pardon and mercy and will ask my help and intercession. Then Jesus Christ, by an act of His justice and His great mercy toward the righteous, will command His angels to put all His enemies to death. At one blow the persecutors of the Church of Jesus Christ and all men given to sin will perish, and the earth will become like a desert. …
Interpretation (With the first lightning blow of His sword … only murders … the clash of arms): The World War 2 began in the year 1939. Many Jews were executed by the SS. Wikipedia: World War II, or the Second World War (often abbreviated as WWII or WW2), was a global conflict lasting from 1939 to 1945, involving most of the world’s nations—including all of the great powers—eventually forming two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most widespread war in history, with more than 100 million military personnel mobilised. In a state of “total war,” the major participants placed their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities at the service of the war effort, erasing the distinction between civilian and military resources. Marked by significant events involving the mass death of civilians, including the Holocaust and the only use of nuclear weapons in warfare, it was the deadliest conflict in human history, resulting in 50 million to over 70 million fatalities. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_War_II
Interpretation: Paris and Marseille were overrun (or were swallowed up) by Nazi Germany. It was called Blitzkrieg. Wikipedia: Blitzkrieg (German, “lightning war”; is an anglicized word describing all-mechanised force concentration of tanks, infantry, artillery and air power, concentrating overwhelming force at high speed to break through enemy lines, and, once the latter is broken, proceeding without regard to its flank.
Interpretation (a number of large cities will be shattered and swallowed by earthquakes;): Many large german cities were shattered by the firebombs of the Allies. The earth shook through the bombs.
The two nuclear bombs swallowed up two large cities (Hiroshima and Nagasaki). Both cities were destroyed immediately. They were bulldozed. The earth shook through the two nuclear bombs. Wikipedia: On Monday, August 6, 1945, at 8:15 AM, the Atomic Bomb “Little Boy” was dropped on Hiroshima by an American B-29 bomber, the Enola Gay,directly killing an estimated 80,000 people. By the end of the year, injury and radiation brought total casualties to 90,000–140,000. Approximately 69% of the city’s buildings were completely destroyed, and about 7% severely damaged.
The war criminals were convicted by the Nuremberg Trials. The world was like a desert after the World War 2. Many cities have been had to rebuild because of the great destruction in Europe and Asia.
◊ ♦ ◊ … „Then there will be peace, the reconciliation of God with men; Jesus Christ will be served, adored and glorified; charity will flourish everywhere. The new kings will be the right arm of Holy Church, which will be strong, humble, pious, poor, zealous and imitative of the virtues of Jesus Christ. The Gospel will be preached everywhere, and men will make great strides in the faith, because there will be unity among Jesus Christ’s workers and men will live in the fear of God. …
Interpretation: The love of neighbor (charity) flourished in western Europe (Germany, Austria, France, Italy, Spain …) after the World War 2. A rapid reconstruction of Europa make the Marshal plan possible. The church attendance again flourished. The rubble women rebuilt the destroyed cities. Wikipedia: Trümmerfrau (literally translated as ruins woman or rubble woman) is the German-language name for women who, in the aftermath of World War II, helped clear and reconstruct the bombed cities of Germany and Austria. With hundreds of cities having suffered significant bombing and firestorm damage through aerial attacks (and in some cases, ground fighting), and with many men dead or prisoners of war, this monumental task fell to a large degree on women, creating the term. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tr%C3%BCmmerfrau
◊ ♦ ◊ … „This peace among men will not last long: 25 years of abundant harvests will make them forget that the sins of men are the cause of all the woes which happen on earth. …
Interpretation: It gave abundant harvests after World War 2. The economic boom was starting in West Germany and Western Europe. (1950 – 1975). Wikipedia: The term Wirtschaftswunder (German for “economic miracle”) describes the rapid reconstruction and development of the economies of West Germany and Austria after World War II (adopting a social market economy). The expression was used by The Times in 1950. Beginning with the replacement of the Reichsmark with the Deutsche Mark as legal tender (the Schilling was similarly established in Austria), a lasting period of low inflation and rapid industrial growth was overseen by the government led by German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer and his Minister of Economics, Ludwig Erhard, who went down in history as the “father of the German economic miracle.” In Austria, efficient labor practices led to a similar period of economic growth. The era of economic growth raised Germany and Austria from total wartime devastation to developed nations in modern Europe. At the founding of the European Common Market, Germany’s economic growth stood in contrast to the struggling conditions at the time in the United Kingdom. … From the late 1950s onwards, West Germany had one of the world’s strongest economies. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wirtschaftswunder

Interpretation (The earth will be struck with plagues of all kinds;“): I believe you can compare it with the fourth seal. See: ♦ Revelation 6,7 When he broke open the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature cry out, „Come forward.“ 8 I looked, and there was a pale green horse. Its rider was named Death, and Hades accompanied him. They were given authority over a quarter of the earth, to kill with sword, famine, and plague, and by means of the beasts of the earth.
Famines: Somalia 2011. One billion people famish according to UN. There are many Aids patients in Africa. People have also started revolutions due to high food prices in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Syria and Yemen at the beginning of the year 2011. Interpretation (the ten kings of the Antichrist): See Revelation 17,12: ♦ Revelation 17,12 The ten horns that you saw represent ten kings who have not yet been crowned; they will receive royal authority along with the beast for one hour. 13 They are of one mind and will give their power and authority to the beast. 14 They will fight with the Lamb, but the Lamb will conquer them, for he is Lord of lords and king of kings, and those with him are called, chosen, and faithful.“

Happy the humble souls lead by the Holy Ghost! I shall battle along with them until they reach the fullness of maturity.„Nature begs vengeance on account of men, and she shudders with dread, awaiting what must happen to the crime-stained earth. …
Interpretation: I believe there are a sort of false peace in the world nowadays. European countries disarm. Germany has eliminated the general conscription. They say that there are no real threat, no Cold War. I believe the world sits on a powder keg because of the climate warming, the international debt crisis (Euro, Dollar), the monetary decay, the food scarcity, the scarcity of raw materials … The Globalization has been showing the adverse effects for years.
