Reconciled Life and Reconciling Way of Life
O Mary, Mother of Reconciliation,
as we dedicate this year to you
we rejoice to call you blessed.
God the Father chose you as a favored daughter
to carry out his providential plan of Salvation.
The Son of God willed you to be his Mother and Disciple,
when, to save humanity, he assumed humanity.
The Holy Spirit loved you,
and fashioned you into his living temple,
and showered you with extraordinary gifts.
At La Salette, with tears of light,
you showed us your crucified Son;
you spoke the language of the humble;
you gave your message to Maximin and Melanie
so that it might be made known to all “your People”
of every language and culture;
obtain for us the grace to accept and love one another,
and to work together for justice and peace.
To you, O Mother, Reconciler of sinners,
Pathway of hope and peace among peoples and cultures,
we confidently entrust all humanity and our “common home,”
and the fears and hopes that inhabit them.
Speak once more to Jesus, your Son, that, like you,
we too may do whatever he tells us.
Our Lady of La Salette Reconciler of Sinners. . .
Pray without ceasing for us who have recoursed to you.
A REFLECTION ...
The tears of light that Maximin and Melanie saw descend on the face of the "Beautiful Lady" through the light itself are carried upwards, towards the shining diadem which covers her head. The light of Easter illuminates every human tear and every tear of creation, so that the darkness that inhabits it moves away from the hope that comes from God; and the pain they imply is healed by the peace of the Risen Lord (Cf. Rom, 8). The luminous diadem of the Beautiful Lady encloses this path of light and it offers itself as grace and life to those who look at it attentively, so that their gaze, the more it rises, the more it remembers what is below: the creation which cries, the humanity which suffers while awaiting the complete redemption of the body.
La Salette is not a household name, but you hear it preached in Bolivia and the Philippines, in Angola and Madagascar, in southernmost India and in Poland, In Byelorussia and in Indonesia. And in a small alpine village, where it was first heard.
We are accepting high school graduates and young professionals who wish to dedicate themselves as ambassadors of Reconciliation
The La Salette Laity is our mission partner in making the message of Our Lady of La Salette be known to all her people.
