Our Lady of La Salette

The mother consoled.

The wife of a man named Blasi, from Frascati, had a child whom she was nursing; having taken him into her bed with her, she fell asleep and suffocated the child. When she woke up, she cried out in despair and pain, but she came to her senses and ran to the shrine of Mary: the dead child was placed on Her altar; the children of the schools were called; the people joined them and the Salve Regina was recited before the image of the Mother of mercies. The good superior of the Pious Schools takes the child in his arms, lifts him up, offers him to Mary, and then places him back on the altar; people pray, hope, and keep a respectful silence; then, the fortunate child begins to move and cry; he not only gives a sign of life, but also seems to give thanks to Mary and to God. Who can describe the emotion, the joy and the tears of gratitude of the whole crowd, and the happiness of the poor mother at the sight of her resurrected child? I leave that to your imagination, children of Mary; always trust in Her without measure and without limits!
