"We are very guilty! In consequence of this, it is necessary that a very great
and terrible scourge should come to revive our faith, and to restore to us our
very reason, which we have almost entirely lost. Wicked men are devoured
by a thirst for exercising their cruelty; but when they shall have reached the
uttermost point of barbarity, God Himself shall extend His hand to stop them,
and very soon after, a complete change shall be effected in all surviving persons."
(Words of Melanie Calvat, Seer at La Salette, from this 1879 Text with Imprimatur)
