A Lesson in Civics 101

Putting aside the turmoil of the present-day political landscape and holding on tightly to the optimistic” glass-half-full” view of life, it appears to me that we are living in an age which offers us a remarkably good opportunity to learn more about the basics of how marvelously our founding fathers designed a system of checks and balances, laws and rights, idealism and reality – all blended into this amalgam we call our American Democratic System.

No One Else But Jesus

Over the main entrance to the Basilica on the Holy Mountain of La Salette is a stained-glass representation of the Transfiguration of Jesus. As you step outside, the site of the Apparition our Our Lady is directly in front of you.

The visual comparison is obvious. On a ‘holy mountain,’ Jesus’ face shone like the sun and his clothes became white as light.

Can Catholicism Offer a Way to Peace in Korea?

The first time I heard the word “Korea,” I was a small child learning that my father had served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. My dad was stationed in Okinawa during the conflict and fortunately did not get sent into combat.
However, I had learned early that this Asian nation was a significant place, not just for my family, but for millions of other families.

The Perfect Gift of Adoption

Motherhood is very much on our minds in the month of May – both the divine motherhood of Mary and the more prosaic version the rest of us experience. It is gladdening to honor the love of mothers – sacrificial, faithful and enduring – qualities that all our other loves should share.

Final Prayer to Our Lady of La Salette

The Face of the Reconciler, is to share the message and meaning of the La Salette Apparition for ordinary Christians with practical application to their daily lives. It is considered by many Marian scholars as the most biblical of recent Apparitions and touches upon the basics of the Christian life: an active faith, daily prayer, the importance of the Eucharist, reverence for the Name of Jesus, use of the Lenten habits of faith and finally the call to share her message and that of her Son with all God’s people.

Pope Francis - August 2017

"The arts give expression to the beauty of the faith and proclaim the Gospel message of the grandeur of God’s creation.
When we admire a work of art or a marvel of nature, we discover how everything speaks to us of Him and of His love.
That artists of our time, through their creativity, may help us discover the beauty of creation".

La Salette : A Message and A Mission
spiral border

La Salette was an unknown hamlet lost in one of those giant crevices of the French Alps. Early on September 19, 1846, the two children climb the slopes of the Mount Sous-Les-Baisses, each urging four cows up the mountain. Contrary to their habits, the two children lay down on the grass and fell asleep. The September sun was relaxing and the sky was cloudless. The chattering brook highlighted the mountain stillness. These were quiet moments.

Our Community: The Missionaries of Our Lady of La Salette are deeply rooted in the Apparition of Our Lady of La Salette which occurred near the hamlet of La Salette in southeastern France on Sept. 19, 1846. The Missionaries were founded in 1852 by Bp. Philbert de Bruillard, Bishop of Grenoble, France, and presently serve in some 25 countries.

Our Province: The Province of Mary, Mother of the Americas, was founded in 2000 AD and is one of several provinces in the congregation. The members of this Province serve mainly in the countries of Canada, the United States and the Region of Argentina/Bolivia.

Our Mission: Our La Salette ministry of reconciliation responds to the broad vision given by Mary at La Salette as well as in response to the needs of the Church. As reconcilers, we together with the laity take seriously Mary’s mandate: “You will make (Mary’s) message known to all (her) people.”
