SECRET OF LA SALETTE:
ALIENS AND NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCES (NDEs)
By a soul
(Feast of Our Lady of the Conception, April 6, 2018)
For the past month or so, I have been studying the Secrets of Fatima and Secret of La Salette. And in particular to La Salette, I wrote a short commentary interpreting specific challenging statements, which God gave me immediate insight to their meanings. (See Special Commentary – Secret of La Salette – “It will rain with a fearful hail of animals” https://maryrefugeofholylove.com/2018/03/06/special-commentary-secret-of-la-salette-it-will-rain-with-a-fearful-hail-of-animals/).
Well, this special commentary about the Secret of La Salette will be a little different. Unlike my previous commentary in which God gave me immediate clarity to specific phrases, this writing comes from me discerning and reflecting upon other challenging statements for the past month or so. And because I do not claim perfect discernment, my interpretations are subject to human flaws. Nonetheless, I am going to attempt to interpret these specific words of Our Lady in hopes that people will gain fruit from my discernment—trusting that everything will be reconciled by Our Lord in the end.
And so, I hope that people will be blessed by this writing. First, I will share the excerpts of the Secret of La Salette that I will be discerning. Then, my interpretations will follow on the particular phrases for your consideration. God bless!
EXCERPT: Part III, Secret Of La Salette
“…Evil books will be abundant on earth and the spirits of darkness will spread everywhere a universal slackening of all that concerns the service of God. They will have great power over Nature: there will be churches built to serve these spirits. People will be transported from one place to another by these evil spirits, even priests, for they will not have been guided by the good spirit of the Gospel which is a spirit of humility, charity and zeal for the glory of God. On occasions, the dead and the righteous will be brought back to life. (That is to say that these dead will take on the form of righteous souls which had lived on earth, in order to lead men further astray; these so-called resurrected dead, who will be nothing but the devil in this form, will preach another Gospel contrary to that of the true Christ Jesus, denying the existence of Heaven; that is also to say, the souls of the damned. All these souls will appear as if fixed to their bodies).2…”
FOOTNOTE #2: The Secret Of La Salette (Melanie)
2. In a letter to Father Combe, dated October 7th, 1899, Melanie corrects these words in parenthesis which are her own, she says, and which she judges to be unclear and inaccurate. “That is to say”, she writes, “that in those days, which only seem like twenty years ago, some perverted people (Italian: malvages) had given themselves over to devotion to the demon of magic. These people would cause to appear in the eyes of the curious, acquainted and theirs who had not led a Christian way of life.”
“These supposedly resurrected individuals appeared in heavenly glory. People known to have lived in the fear of God appeared to be in horrible suffering, and urged their friends and acquaintances not to follow in their footsteps, and they preached a Gospel opposed to that of Our Lord Jesus Christ. It seems that these bizarre occurrences may be put down to the fashion for spiritualistic evocations and for certain spiritualistic and demoniac practices which no doubt will one day be brought to light through a thorough examination of the Luciferian archives of Free Masonry.”
In the same letter, Melanie takes care to explain that where it is said that people will be transported from one place to another, it must be understood as to be in rare cases only.
“They will have great power over Nature: there will be churches built to serve these spirits. People will be transported from one place to another by these evil spirits, even priests”
I believe that these two statements by Our Lady of La Salette have two interpretative meanings. The first meaning is in regards to what we are currently witnessing in our societies and communities; and the second meaning is in regards to what will happen during the Great Apostasy of the Catholic Church.
First, the meaning for today. I, a soul, am an American, so I will speak about what I am witnessing in my country. However, I know that similar things are taking place elsewhere in the world such as Europe, Africa, Latin America, etc., so people from other countries can relate.
Currently, we can see this prophecy happening, particularly, in the growing public acceptance of witchcraft and even, satanism, in America. This also extends to practitioners of the occult and the New Age—all of which encourage worship of nature and the natural world. And as churches close due to lack of attendance and funds, these buildings are being sold off to practitioners of these pseudo-religions, which is an utter tragedy for these places once consecrated to worship of the True God, Our Heavenly Father and His Divine Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Now, I am not an expect in the tactics of the occult. However, Our Lord has given much help through heavenly messages about the growing fact of trafficking witches in America, Africa, and elsewhere (See heavenly messages given through the Apostolate of the Green Scapular, http://www.greenscapular.org). And I know that this phenomenon is not limited to witchcraft, but is wide-spread in all pseudo-religions like satanism and New Age. Called “astral projection,” this phenomenon is even promoted in yoga—a form of Hinduism, when people delve into the belief systems behind such practices.
Trust me, I know, because before my conversion to Catholicism, I studied books on advanced yoga, trying to figure out what was the true faith on earth. So, I am going to tell everyone that reads this special commentary, if you practice yoga, please stop. Not only are you glorifying demons through animal poses, you are physically practicing a belief system that is contrary to Christianity. Yoga is not simply a benign exercise, etc.—it is contrary to Christian faith. So, please think about what you are doing.
Now, the second meaning for these two statements by Our Lady of La Salette, holds also true for what will happen under the Great Apostasy of the Catholic Church. Under the leadership of the antichrist and the false prophet, satan seeks to change the Catholic Mass making it satanic worship. Thus, Catholic churches will become dens for the satanic mass.
Now, why does satan want to do this? I wrote extensively about this in my special commentary about Armageddon, but I want to provide further clarity on this issue—why satan wants to collapse the Catholic Church by worldwide worship in the satanic mass. (See “Armageddon Is Not What People Think” – By A Soul https://maryrefugeofholylove.com/the-great-tribulation/armageddon-is-not-what-people-think-by-a-soul/)
In the Book of Truth given to 7th Messenger, Maria Divine Mercy, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, has revealed that through a wide-spread nuclear war, the antichrist will rise to worldwide prominence and power, by being the peace-maker among all warring nations. And so, through these acts, the antichrist will endear himself among all peoples, which will give him entry to seize leadership of the Catholic Church, through the invitation of the false prophet.
And when this fact was revealed by Jesus, I will be honest and say, I wondered to myself, why does satan want to stop the nuclear war? It did not make sense to me, because I thought to myself, surely, satan can inflict much lasting devastating damage on the human race with millions dying around the world due to the wide-spread use of nuclear weapons(?).
Truly, why does satan want to stop the nuclear world war?
I was puzzled until I finally saw the video that I wrote much about in my Armageddon commentary. Then, I realized the reason why, which is hinted about in the Book of Truth given to Maria Divine Mercy. The fact is, satan’s Armageddon—his demonic alien war—is much more cataclysmal and ruinous to the human race. That is why satan will have the antichrist stop the nuclear war. Because he has something much more devastating planned with his demonic alien war. Hence, Our Lady said in one message in Locutions To The World, that if satan were allowed by Our Heavenly Father to do everything that he has planned, there would be nothing left.
However, satan cannot stage his demonic alien war (Armageddon) yet, because he does not have enough demonic power. Thus, he needs to remove the protecting power of the Most Holy Eucharist (Abomination of Desolation) in the Catholic Church, and have worldwide worship through the satanic mass. Only in that way, satan can kill off the entire human race, thus, ruining the Divine Plan of Our Heavenly Father. Nothing else will satisfy him.
Now, Our Lady desires that I make a connection between the Secrets of La Salette and Fatima, which I did not make in my earlier writing (See Special Commentary – “Secret of La Salette – “It will rain with a fearful hail of animals” https://maryrefugeofholylove.com/2018/03/06/special-commentary-secret-of-la-salette-it-will-rain-with-a-fearful-hail-of-animals/). In my prior writing, I revealed that the statement by Our Lady of La Salette, “it will rain with a fearful hail of animals,” refers to demons disguised as aliens. Now, some may contend that it does not refer to alien demons, but to actual animals, such as falling flocks of birds, which some people have witnessed in places, etc.
Well, in the First Secret of Fatima—the vision of hell by the three shepherd children—the children referred to the demons that they saw looked like frightful animals. Here is the vision of hell at Fatima:
“Our Lady showed us a great sea of fire which seemed to be under the earth. Plunged in this fire were demons and souls in human form, like transparent burning embers, all blackened or burnished bronze, floating about in the conflagration, now raised into the air by the flames that issued from within themselves together with great clouds of smoke, now falling back on every side like sparks in a huge fire, without weight or equilibrium, and amid shrieks and groans of pain and despair, which horrified us and made us tremble with fear. The demons could be distinguished by their terrifying and repulsive likeness to frightful and unknown animals, all black and transparent. This vision lasted but an instant. How can we ever be grateful enough to our kind heavenly Mother, who had already prepared us by promising, in the first Apparition, to take us to heaven. Otherwise, I think we would have died of fear and terror.”
Now, Heaven desires that I make the connection between the First and Second Woes of Revelation (Fifth and Sixth Trumpets), Chapter 9, with the demonic alien war planned by satan. (Please see the References at the end of this special commentary for the text of Chapter 9 of the Book of Revelation). This First Woe comes after the First Four Trumpets which describe the potential nuclear war. The First Woe describes the demonic locusts that attack the evil people who do not have the Seal of the Living God on them. (See The Seal Of The Living God, https://maryrefugeofholylove.com/the-seal-of-the-living-god/) The locusts are allowed to harm people for five months but not kill them. They are described as coming from hell and look like horses for battle with human faces and lion’s teeth.
Also, part of the Second Woe (Sixth Trumpet) includes a horrific description of 4 devils, along with a cavalry of 200 million soulless demonic beasts, being released to kill 1/3 of the human race on earth. These demonic beasts are described with having great power in their mouths and in their serpent tails. I believe that these demonic beasts will be the ones who will be able to kill by the method I mentioned in my Armageddon writing and as mentioned on the video.
Also, Heaven desires that I discern the first verse of Chapter 9, Book of Revelation, for this commentary, which I just learned now:
Verse 1: “Then the fifth angel blew his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth. It was given the key for the passage to the abyss…”
The “star that had fallen from the sky to the earth” refers to a fallen priest in the Catholic Church. In particular, it is a reference to the anti-pope, the false prophet, who enables satan’s demonic alien war to happen by granting demonic power to satan through the Abomination of Desolation and worldwide worship in the satanic mass. This becomes possible when the antichrist is invited by the false prophet to take up reign in the fallen visible Catholic Church.
Finally, in respects to the Secret of La Salette, I believe that the mention of people being transported by evil spirits, including priests, also refers to alien (UFO) abductions, which will become more frequent as satan gains more demonic power through worldwide worship in the satanic mass. Already, we see more mainstream mention of people spotting and video-recording alien/UFO sightings around the world. This is directly related to satan gaining more demonic power through the mainstreaming of pseudo-religions as mentioned before. And once the Catholic churches adopt the satanic mass, such manifestations will become even more common, even among the fallen clergy—all in keeping with satan’s diabolical plan for the End Times.
“On occasions, the dead and the righteous will be brought back to life”
Meanwhile, much has happened in the 180 years or so since the Secret of La Salette was given by Our Lady to seer, Melanie. And when Melanie wrote it fully down shortly before her death at the turn of the century, she included her explanations of what she thought Our Lady was referring to (as indicated in the parentheses and in the footnote). Thus, we must be aware that Melanie’s interpretations might be humanly flawed, especially colored with a 19th century frame of reference.
Now, as I said before, I do not claim perfect discernment. However, I want to attempt to interpret this challenging statement by Our Lady of La Salette, hoping that my readers will give me the benefit of the doubt. And, of course, I will be discerning with a 21st century frame of reference, the current world situation as we are on the cusp of the Great Tribulation of the Apocalypse.
Well, I believe that these words of Our Lady of La Salette are referring to the phenomenon of near-death experiences, which sometimes occurs when people have been saved by medical technology after a brief time of clinical death. In particular, these people will sometimes mention either a heaven or hell experience, which often radically, changes their lives and perceptions of the afterlife.
Now, I am going to make a claim that people are free to disagree with, but personally, I believe that any near-death experience that does not bring a person closer to Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in Christianity, is false and from lucifer. Also, I am going to claim that many experiences that people have of Heaven are also false, if it does not bring a person closer to Traditional Christianity.
Now, why do I make these claims? It is because of my own personal experience that I had while I was undergoing surgery in 2001 for my broken leg. The full story is told in the writing of My Conversion Story, but basically, at the time, I was scared to death as I never had any major trauma like a broken leg before. And so, I asked for a Catholic priest before surgery, although I had never professed to be a Catholic believer in my adult life at that point. But, the priest was very good to me and he anointed me, giving me the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick (which is the same Sacrament of Last Rites), even though I did not confess any sins to him (I did not know that I was supposed to do so). And, well, due to the sacrament that I received, I had an out-of-body experience during surgery and found myself in Purgatory, etc. I also saw lucifer trying to stop me from reconciling myself back with God, etc. (See Memoir Of a soul In Holy Love – Writings Inspired By The Heavenly Messages Of The Blessed Virgin Mary, https://maryrefugeofholylove.com/writings-by-a-soul/free-ebook-memoir-of-a-soul-in-holy-love-writings-inspired-by-the-messages-of-the-blessed-virgin-mary-by-a-soul/)
And so, based on my personal experience, I am skeptical of many near-death accounts. Even ones that speak of Heaven, because I know from studying heavenly messages through the years, that it is actually difficult to enter Heaven right away upon death. Even if a person is following the Ten Commandments as they should be, one venial (lesser) sin will send a person to Purgatory. Truly, at death, a person has to have such a deep trust in God saving him that his love for God has to be so strong that it overcomes any semblance of self-love. That is actually really hard to do without have a strong Christian faith already. It is not impossible, but I recognize that it is difficult for most.
Also, Heaven has recently revealed to me that at the time of the Great Warning (Illumination of Conscience) happens, 90% of the world population is going to see hell as their eternal judgment, if they continue the same path that they are walking on. Then, the rest will see deep Purgatory and a very small percentage will see Heaven. And so, knowing the percentages currently involved, it is hard for me to understand why there are so many near-death Heaven accounts today, and hardly, any mention of Purgatory, etc.
I am not casting judgment on any particular person’s account, as I know that many people are being sincere about their experiences in the afterlife. However, I think that a lot of people do not realize how involved lucifer is, especially, at the moment of death, which is the greatest battle for every soul’s salvation. The moment of death should never be taken for granted and always be well-prepared for. Otherwise, there is the extreme jeopardy of losing one’s soul, or being saved but spending much time in deep Purgatory.
I mean, even Sister Faustina of Divine Mercy, had an experience recorded in her diary, I believe, where she realized that she would spend 2 days in Purgatory for a few venial sins… And she was a living Saint! So, I do not pass judgment on anyone’s sincerity about their near-death experiences. I just believe that many of the situations are being manipulated by satan, especially, if there is no mention of Purgatory, or they do not lead to a deeper faith in Traditional Christianity or the Catholic faith, etc.
Also, I need to make a comment about something that I found on YouTube about two months ago. I realized that there are many accounts of people having visions of Heaven and hell on YouTube. In fact, it is on YouTube that I found 10-year old Jeremy’s near-death experience, retold by his mother, which I used as my basis for my Armageddon commentary. So, I do believe that there are genuine accounts of the afterlife available, but most of the visions that people are having about celebrities and relatives in either Heaven or hell, I find to be false—although I know people are being sincere about seeing something supernatural. I just believe that most visions are being manipulated by satan, especially, if they lead away from Traditional Christianity or the Catholic faith.
Now, I will tell you why.
In my life, I have had two experiences where lucifer approached me disguised once as a soul from Purgatory and once as a soul in Heaven. Both times, lucifer disguised himself as people that I knew during my lifetime (in particular, my grandfather and a close friend). But, thanks be to God, I discerned both times that it was satan and was saved from certain death (I love my guardian angel, St. Michael the Archangel, and St. Joseph).
And so, I share these things, because I want people to understand that it is Very Easy for lucifer or any devil to appear as a deceased person that one knew in life during a vision or supernatural visitation. It is Really Easy to do, especially, if it is the same devil who was assigned by lucifer to tempt that person throughout their life on earth. That devil intimately knows everything about the deceased person, and it is Very Easy to manipulate the “energy pattern” of that person for a vision or supernatural visitation. So, such occurrences always need to be properly tested and discerned before someone readily accepts that the person is truly whom they say that they are. And unfortunately, I did not see that happening or ever being mentioned in the few YouTube videos that I watched. Perhaps, that is because the vast majority of them were created by Protestant Christians that do not have the traditional counsel of a spiritual director/priest, such as in the Catholic Church, to help in discernment and testing of spirits.
So, do not be deceived by the many YouTube videos that speak about near-death experiences and visions of Heaven and hell, particularly, if they give names of people, including relatives and celebrities and their eternal judgment in the afterlife. The fact is, in most legitimate accounts and visions, God usually forbids people from revealing who they see in hell, out of respect for the families who are still living on earth. Also, the same “forbidden rule” applies to lucifer and his devils most of the time.
Personally, that was one of the reasons that I was able to discern that my close friend, whom I knew was in Heaven, was in fact, lucifer in disguise. As I shared in my Memoir, my “friend” was trying to talk to me about her previous sins, but it did not make sense to me, because I knew that she was finally out of Purgatory and in Heaven, and that God had forgiven and forgotten all her sins. Yet, my “friend” kept trying to suggest what her sins were even though she could not come out and say exactly what they were. It was a very odd and troubling conversation, but thanks be to God, I figured out it was lucifer and did not get physically harmed.
So, I am being very honest and saying that satan is very active in the world today. Not just in everyday secular affairs on the news, but in the very heart of Christian churches and Christian lives. Everything has to be tested and discerned, especially, in matters of the afterlife. Everything that draws a person away from Traditional Christianity and the Catholic Church needs to be rejected. And when I refer to Traditional Christianity, I mean keeping obedience to the Gospel, the Ten Commandments, Holy Love, etc. People really need to protect themselves with sacramentals, devotions, a strong prayer-life, etc., because there is so much darkness right now, and most people do not understand the spiritual warfare that is taking place every moment in their lives.
Myself, I am not perfect, but I do see the war that is being waged in my life every present moment. All because I listen to the words of Our Lord and Our Lady at Holy Love Ministries (http://www.holylove.org), answering the call to my own personal holiness. It takes much effort and dedicated work to constantly bring yourself into the present moment battle, but once you recognize your enemy, you can defeat him by grace. All Glory to God. But, all Christians need to fight for their faith. It all begins with making good Confessions and adhering to the Ten Commandments. If you cannot do that, the battle is already lost.
Finally, I am going to make a very controversial claim, which is in keeping with the Secret of La Salette and a recent heavenly message. God the Father revealed that “there are people walking the face of the earth without souls and these are satan’s soldiers and army.” However, Our Heavenly Father did not indicate how exactly these people were being brought into existence on earth. But, I want to make claim, even though I do not have any evidence of it, nor am I passing judgment on any person. But, I want to say that it would not surprise me if some of the people who are being brought back into life after being declared clinically dead are no longer human. I have no evidence, because this is not something that I study, but it would not surprise me if devils were taking advantage of modern medical technology and assuming physical control of deceased bodies after their souls have left at the moment of death. (See heavenly message, God the Father – “There are people walking the face of the earth without souls and these are satan’s soldiers and army” https://maryrefugeofholylove.com/2018/01/06/god-the-father-there-are-people-walking-the-face-of-the-earth-without-souls-and-these-are-satans-soldiers-and-army/).
Again, I know that is a shocking claim to make and I have no hard evidence. I also do not want to scare people, especially, if they have relatives or friends who were saved from death due to medical advances, etc. But, I say it, because I have battled satan much, experiencing his heightened supernatural powers many times. And so, it would not surprise me the least bit, if lucifer and his devils could actually do such a feat, especially, due to modern medical technology. Especially, since I have written, based on personal experience, that demonic possession takes place within the physical body and not the spiritual soul. So, I could see it happening, especially, as it is suggested by Melanie in her explanations of the words of Our Lady in the Secret of La Salette.
Anyways, I do not want to conclude this special commentary with such a sensational claim. Rather, I want to end this writing with a great deal of hope. Half the battle is just simply being knowledgeable about such things—potential or otherwise, in the supernatural world. The fact is, the more spiritual education one has, the better equipped a person can be as a Soldier of Christ. I do not claim to be an expert in all supernatural matters, but what little I know, I pass along to you all, as my beloved readers, whom I love and care about very much. Our Lord and Our Lady have blessed me so much, and I am so grateful and desire very much to share these blessings with everyone, so that together, we can be united as one loving Body in Christ.
So, I offer this special commentary to you all for your own fruitful discernment. Please, take from it, whatever can be useful to you, and know, I am not perfect in my own discernment, but all that really matters in the end, is charity and love. I offer you everything with charity in my heart and hope that you receive what you can in love.
May God bless each of you ever-abundantly. I love you all.

REFERENCE (FIRST WOE / PART OF SECOND WOE):
Book of Revelation, Chapter 9
The Fifth Trumpet. 1 Then the fifth angel blew his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth. It was given the key for the passage to the abyss. 2 It opened the passage to the abyss, and smoke came up out of the passage like smoke from a huge furnace. The sun and the air were darkened by the smoke from the passage. 3 Locusts came out of the smoke onto the land, and they were given the same power as scorpions of the earth. 4 They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or any tree, but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads. 5 They were not allowed to kill them but only to torment them for five months; the torment they inflicted was like that of a scorpion when it stings a person. 6 During that time these people will seek death but will not find it, and they will long to die but death will escape them.
7 The appearance of the locusts was like that of horses ready for battle. On their heads they wore what looked like crowns of gold; their faces were like human faces, 8 and they had hair like women’s hair. Their teeth were like lions’ teeth, 9 and they had chests like iron breastplates. The sound of their wings was like the sound of many horse-drawn chariots racing into battle. 10 They had tails like scorpions, with stingers; with their tails they had power to harm people for five months. 11 They had as their king the angel of the abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon and in Greek Apollyon.
12 The first woe has passed, but there are two more to come.
The Sixth Trumpet. 13 Then the sixth angel blew his trumpet, and I heard a voice coming from the [four] horns of the gold altar before God, 14 telling the sixth angel who held the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the banks of the great river Euphrates.” 15 So the four angels were released, who were prepared for this hour, day, month, and year to kill a third of the human race. 16 The number of cavalry troops was two hundred million; I heard their number. 17 Now in my vision this is how I saw the horses and their riders. They wore red, blue, and yellow breastplates, and the horses’ heads were like heads of lions, and out of their mouths came fire, smoke, and sulfur. 18 By these three plagues of fire, smoke, and sulfur that came out of their mouths a third of the human race was killed. 19 For the power of the horses is in their mouths and in their tails; for their tails are like snakes, with heads that inflict harm.
20 The rest of the human race, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, to give up the worship of demons and idols made from gold, silver, bronze, stone, and wood, which cannot see or hear or walk. 21 Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic potions, their unchastity, or their robberies.
