“At the first blow of His thundering sword, the mountains and all Nature will tremble in terror, for the disorders and crimes of men have pierced the vault of the heavens. Paris will burn and Marseilles will be engulfed. Several cities will be shaken down and swallowed up by earthquakes. People will believe that all is lost. Nothing will be seen but murder, nothing will be heard but the clash of arms and blasphemy. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
'It was a freak of nature': Rock slide in Vermont caused 57mph Amtrak commuter train to fly off the rails and into a ditch, injuring 7 The Amtrak passenger train which derailed in Northfield, Vermont, on Monday morning was sent hurtling by a 'freak' rock slide, the governor has said. One person was airlifted to hospital and another six went in ambulances to be treated for minor injuries after the southbound train traveling at 57 mph flew off the tracks 10 miles south of Montpelier at 10am. On Monday afternoon, Gov Peter Shumlin told reporters there was a rock on the track that could not have been avoided even if brakes were applied, adding: 'this really was a freak of nature'.
Shumlin praised the 104 passengers, many elderly, who scrambled up the steep hillside to safety after the crash. 'I've just been meeting with the passengers,' Shumlin said, 'and it's really a remarkable thing to hear. 'It was a pretty brutal derailment caused by ledge on the track, and as one of the passengers said to me, "Someone was looking out for us, because literally we walked out of a very difficult situation."' He said the six passengers with minor injuries were taken to Central Vermont Medical Center in nearby Berlin to be treated. The seventh was airlifted to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center. Their injuries are unknown. Daily Mail Read More>>>>>

I protest once more against the very false statements of all those who dare say and write First that I embroidered the Secret; second, against those who state that the Queen Mother did not say to transmit the Secret to all her people."
