On February 18th, 2002, we received an e-mail regarding the veracity of the Message of La Salette. We deem the issue serious enough as to address it through this Note posted within The M+G+R Foundation Domain. The key portions of the e-mail follow:
This message is being sent to you as you have a file or files on your site which promotes or supports the false message that the Blessed Virgin Mary spoke at La Salette the words to Melanie Calvat: “ROME WILL LOOSE THE FAITH AND BECOME THE SEAT OF ANTICHRIST.”
I urge you to seriously ponder the measures you ought take to mitigate the damage caused by your stand on this matter.

We are quite familiar with the concerted effort being made by the fanatic elements within the Faith to discredit the Message of La Salette (1) , the Messages through Montechiari and Fontanelle (Rosa Mystica) (2) and the Messages of Garabandal. (3) All three contain severe, and very accurate, criticism (4) of the members of the Clergy and Hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church.
What other behavior should we expect from men, and the supporters of those men, who have placed their ecclesiastical position and related comforts and benefits ahead of the well being of the flock - most specially the most vulnerable members of the flock: the children?
Who, in his right mind would expect, say, Cardinal Law (5) or Cardinal Egan (6), or Cardinal Mahoney or, for that matter, anyone in the Vatican who has allowed men of this caliber to remain in office, to endorse a Message from God, through His Mother, criticizing the debauchery of the clergy and their cover-up by the Hierarchy? Even the late Cardinal Spellman tried to torpedo the efforts of the Blue Army of Fatima but could not.
The M+G+R Foundation will not dignify such allegations against the Message of La Salette (1) with an open debate. This issue will be laid to rest, once and for all, by the following statement from miguel de Portugal. (7)Even if Melanie Calvat would rise from the dead and state that she invented the statement: “ROME WILL LOOSE THE FAITH AND BECOME THE SEAT OF ANTICHRIST”, I, miguel de Portugal, by the Grace of God and in His Name, proclaim from, and to, the four corners of the world that
In addition, regarding the statement about the mitigation of "...the damage caused by The M+G+R Foundation's stand on this matter." I pronounce, once more, that, compared with the Canonization of Mr. Escrivá, (9) any error that may inadvertently appear in the Domain of The M+G+R Foundation is minor when compared with the blasphemy of such perverted canonization (10) forced upon John Paul II.
