“DURING LENT, THEY GO TO THE MEAT-MARKET LIKE DOGS...”

- OUR LADY OF LA SALETTE on September 19, 1846
The three major sins which made the Blessed Virgin Mary weep and suffer at La Salette, France when She appeared to Mélanie Calvat and Maximin Giraud on September 19, 1846 are:
1.) The blasphemy and taking God’s name in vain (violation of the 2nd Commandment)
2.) The non-observance of the Lord’s Day by not going to Holy Mass and doing unnecessary work on Sunday (violation of the 3rd Commandment)
3.) Finally, the non-observance of the Lenten fasting and abstinence especially during Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and all Fridays of Lent including all Fridays of the whole year (violation of one of the 5 Precepts of the Church)

It is very sad and disappointing to see several posts here on Facebook by so-called ‘DEVOUT AND PRACTICING CATHOLICS’ who observed yesterday’s Ash Wednesday by feasting on meats and other luxury foods. Then, they flaunt it by posting their pictures on social media, just because coincidentally was Valentine’s Day.
Why do many Catholics no longer observe the Lenten fasting and abstinence? Where is the spirit of penance and sacrifice? 
It is because many of us have been infected by the sin of MODERNISM; giving in to the pleasures of this world.

Let us live and practice what we believe as true Catholics, not just by name only. 
May Our Lady’s motherly complaint and bitter tears at La Salette, melt our hearts of stone and that we may live Her messages. May this holy season of Lent be a meaningful one for all of us by means of prayer, penance, almsgiving, fasting and abstinence.

OUR LADY OF LA SALETTE, RECONCILER OF SINNERS AND OUR TRUE MOTHER OF SORROWS, pray for us without ceasing those who have recourse to Thee!
