Recently Discovered Photo: Maximin & Melanie La Salette

The newly-discovered historic picture of Maximin (right with his hat) and Melanie (center) walking in the

area near the place where Our Lady of La Salette appeared to them, on a slope of Planeau in La Salette, France.

 

Forty-five small glass photographic plates, from the years 1850 to 1895, were recently unearthed in La Salette, France. One plate shows where Our Lady appeared, another the building of the La Salette basilica. 

 

And also, among these up to 180 year old plates, a special surprise – a photo (above) of Maximin Giraud and Melanie Calvat taken during the period when they were asked to testify at the very site of the apparition. They are pictured standing on a slope of Planeau, in a small ravine where the slopes of Mounts Gargas, Chamoux and Planeau meet. This is an important find!

My family and I were watching a wind burst during Hurricane Ian today - and we all saw a gigantic pine tree fall down right in front of our house - onto the driveway. I then lit our blessed candle... we said prayers. All are safe... no property damage.
