Our Lady of La Salette
Vintage Belgian Holy Card

Our Lady of La Salette is one of the major, yet lesser known, Marian apparitions of the 19th Century. La Salette is a hamlet in the French Alps, and one day, September 19, 1846, two young shepherds came across a "beautiful lady" who was weeping. She spoke to them about the ways of God, still crying, and then walked up a steep path and vanished into a bright light.

Unlike the Fatima children, or Bernadette, these two children, Maximin Giraud (11) and Melanie Calvat (14), faced no serious repercussions for what they reported. Soon a basilica was built there, and a spiritual revival ensued. The Lady's message was, "be reconciled to God." Especially she warned against using her Son's name as a swear word, and dishonoring the Sabbath. The message of La Salette traces the "narrow road that leads to life" (Matthew 7:14), like the steep and narrow path the "Beautiful Lady" climbed before melting away in the light. (source: R. Castel, Dictionary of Mary, via

The publisher is The Societe of St Augustin, who also published Catholic books in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Their books carry Paris as the imprint, but they issued stock for their company in Bruges, Belgium, the location of the "Little Parie."

** IMPORTANT ** THE IMAGE IS SMALLER THAN THE PAPER! There is a white border of about 0.5" inch for 5x7", 1.3" for 8.5x11", or 1.6" for 11x14" pictures. All Approx! Fine art printers do this because the images are almost never the same rectangular ratio of the standard paper sizes. It also gives the prints a finished look, and lets them look good in a frame without a matt.

- Acid-free paper
- Archival pigments, rated to last for generations.
- Cardboard backer
- Above story of the art
- Enclosed in a tight-fitting, crystal clear bag.

Thanks for your interest!
