Origin of the Devotion to Our Lady of La Salette

One day, Me?lanie Calvat (14) and Maximin Giraud (11) were herding cattle in the French Alps when they saw the Blessed Mother appear. She sat weeping, holding her face in her hands and surrounded by an orb of dazzling light. According to the children's account, she related that she was concerned about the lack of devotion amongst Catholics and emphasized the importance of prayer and conversion. As she spoke, the children realized that the light was emanating from a special crucifix she was wearing around her neck.

Today, that crucifix is known as the La Salette cross, featuring a hammer and pincers at the ends of the horizontal beam behind Christ's outstretched arms. While the hammer symbolizes sin and division, the pincers represent the missionaries' work of reconciliation and combatting sin in the world. This cross is the symbol of the La Salette Missionaries today.
