The original version of the Secret of Our Lady of La Salette to Melanie was recorded by Melanie in 1851 and alludes to the Great Catholic Monarch and that he will come before the antichrist.
“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.
“…..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!”

Please note that the 1879 version of the secret attributed to Melanie was condemned by the Church and placed on the Index of Forbidden Books in 1923. This is the version that states that “Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the Antichrist”. This is doctrinally incorrect because the seat of the antichrist will be Jerusalem.
