The apparition of Our Lady of LaSalette occurred on September 19, 1846, in a small village in the French Alps. Two children, who were tending cows, saw an incredibly beautiful woman, surrounded by light, sitting in a chair and weeping. She stood up and spoke to them, "I have come to tell you the good news." (The good news was that God exists and that he loves them.) A message followed and she warned them of a coming famine and how people had fallen away from the faith. She asked that people pray and return to her son.
This apparition received full church approval.
