The so called Secret of La Sallette, which has been reprinted innumerable times, was suppressed by the Holy Office in the early part of the 20th century and placed on the Index of Forbidden Books.  Laity are even supposed to be forbidden to discuss it. However, so much of it rings true that I have to wonder if the suppression of the secret was the beginning of the coverup that we see unraveling before our eyes today. Does anyone else think that this is possible? Or do we have good reason to believe that Melanie's secret was a fraud and not trustworthy?

I never even knew what it was until you just told me about it.  What is it, exactly, that rings true?  What's in the book?
Since it may not be an approved message, I would prefer not to link to it. But google "Secret of La Sallette" and you'll find it.
Rene Laurentin claimed to have the actual secret straight from the Vatican archives.

There are several obvious problems with La Sallette (it seems like somebody opened up the book of Revelation, interpretted it literally (which is wrong), then mixed in previous prophesies about an age of peace etc.  Satan being released in 1865 doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me, for Scripture states that he will only be loosed for a little while to subdue the world via the battle of Gog ang Magog.  Regardless, there are some things in La Salette that may bear a hint of truth.

Very interesting. Thanks for posting this.

True, though a short time may mean something different to God than it does to us.

The other problem is that there are two accounts: one written at the time, and then one written years later.  Only the first had any type of approval.  The second has the more shocking topics in it.
I agree the one written at the time and kept in the Vatican Archives is probably more reliable. I wish Laurentin's book was available in an English translation. To avoid further confusion here are the texts released by Laurentin:
Maximin's original secret:

"On September 19, 1846, we saw a beautiful Lady. We never said that this lady was the Blessed Virgin but we always said that it was a beautiful Lady.

I do not know if it is the Blessed Virgin or another person. As for me, I believe today that it is the Blessed Virgin. Here is what this Lady said to me:

"If my people continue, what I will say to you will arrive earlier, if it changes a little, it will be a little later.

France has corrupted the universe, one day it will be punished. The faith will die out in France: three quarters of France will not practice religion anymore, or almost no more, the other part will practice it without really practicing it. Then, after [that], nations will convert, the faith will be rekindled everywhere. A great country, now Protestant, in the north of Europe, will be converted; by the support of this country all the other nations of the world will be converted.

Before all that arrives, great disorders will arrive, in the Church, and everywhere. Then, after [that], our Holy Father the Pope will be persecuted. His successor will be a pontiff that nobody expects.

Then, after [that], a great peace will come, but it will not last a long time. A monster will come to disturb it.

All that I tell you here will arrive in the other century, at the latest in the year two thousand."

Maximin Giraud

(She told me to say it some time before.)

My Most Holy Father, your holy blessing to one of your sheep.

Grenoble, July 3,1851"

Melanie's secret:
"secret which the Blessed Virgin gave me on the Mountain of La Salette on September 19, 1846

Secr[e]t.

Mélanie, I will say something to you which you will not say to anybody:

The time of the God's wrath has arrived!

If, when you say to the people what I have said to you so far, and what I will still ask you to say, if, after that, they do not convert, (if they do not do penance, and they do not cease working on Sunday, and if they continue to blaspheme the Holy Name of God), in a word, if the face of the earth does not change, God will be avenged against the people ungrateful and slave of the demon.

My Son will make his power manifest! Paris, this city soiled by all kinds of crimes, will perish infallibly. Marseilles will be destroyed in a little time. When these things arrive, the disorder will be complete on the earth, the world will be given up to its impious passions.

The pope will be persecuted from all sides, they will shoot at him, they will want to put him to death, but no one will not be able to do it, the Vicar of God will triumph again this time.

The priests and the Sisters, and the true servants of my Son will be persecuted, and several will die for the faith of Jesus-Christ.

A famine will reign at the same time.

After all these will have arrived, many will recognize the hand of God on them, they will convert, and do penance for their sins.

A great king will go up on the throne, and will reign a few years. Religion will re-flourish and spread all over the world, and there will be a great abundance, the world, glad not to be lacking nothing, will fall again in its disorders, will give up God, and will be prone to its criminal passions.

[Among] God's ministers, and the Spouses of Jesus-Christ, there will be some who will go astray, and that will be the most terrible.

Lastly, hell will reign on earth. It will be then that the Antichrist will be born of a Sister, but woe to her! Many will believe in him, because he will claim to have come from heaven, woe to those who will believe in him!

That time is not far away, twice 50 years will not go by.

My child, you will not say what I have just said to you. (You will not say it to anybody, you will not say if you must say it one day, you will not say what that it concerns), finally you will say nothing anymore until I tell you to say it!

I pray to Our Holy Father the Pope to give me his holy blessing.

Mélanie Mathieu, Shepherdess of La Salette, Grenoble, July 6, 1851.

J.M.J.+"

I think it's clear then that the later texts added elements not in the originals, such as the reference to Antichrist being born in "1865."

Lots of things are coming down the pike.  Be on your guard this week.
Well, it looks as if you need to be careful when driving around La Salette. 24 Polish pilgrims were killed there in 2007 when their bus
plunged off a mountain road: http://wcbstv.com/national/bus.crash.fra...86905.html
