Georges Delaloye was hiking up Mont de l’Arpille in Martigny, Switzerland, when he received a gift from heaven.
“I settled at the foot of a tree and began to write,” Delaloye recalls of this most memorable moment in June of 2005. “Once this writing was completed, when I read it again, I discovered, a little stunned, that I had received the Secret.”
Delaloye is a Reciter of the Secret. In the French-speaking part of Switzerland, many people call on these Faiseurs de Secret when they have an injury, sickness or other health concern. In an extremely old practice — dating back to the Middle Ages — people visit the Reciters (or more often these days, call or even text) to ask for a prayer that will relieve them of their ailment.
While Delaloye is Catholic, the practice of the Secret itself is not attributed to a specific religion. The gift of becoming a Reciter of the Secret is passed down through families, Delaloye explains, with a departed family member choosing a living one to pass the gift to. He comes from a long line of Reciters and believes he received the gift that day in 2005 when it was transmitted to him from the beyond by his deceased brother, Paul-Marc, who died in 1979.
There are over a hundred Reciters of the Secret, tracked in a document that Delaloye curates, listing their name, canton (Switzerland’s equivalent of a U.S. state), phone number and specialties. Reciters of the Secret treat different conditions, from mouth ulcers to hemorrhages to stress. Many have one or two conditions that they treat, but some have five or more. Delaloye himself treats a long list of conditions, including pain, cysts, and side effects from chemotherapy.
The Secret is not one prayer but an array of blessings for different conditions, and sometimes more than one prayer for a single condition. For example, Delaloye says he received three different formules de prière (prayer formulas) to treat burns. When he wanted to see which one would work best, he burned his own hand with a baking tray. “I recited the first formula against burns, it did not work,” Delaloye said. “So, I passed to the next one that is much shorter, and it worked.”
