#A124 La Salette Virgin
The Mother of God appeared on the one and only occasion of September 19, 1846 to two shepherds: 15-year-old Melania Calvat and 11-year-old Maksymin Giraud on a mountain rising above La Salette, in the high Alps in France.
According to the children's accounts, she was a woman of extraordinary beauty sitting inside a bright sphere. Initially, she had her face covered, and her elbows rested on her knees and she cried. On her breast was a cross with Jesus Christ with tools of torment placed on it: a hammer and pliers. From the cross radiated the extraordinary brightness surrounding Mary.
