Calling ALL MEN – The Flame of Love for MEN

Is the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary for men? YES, ABSOLUTELY!

I visited one country recently where zealous members of the Movement were concerned that the perception in their country is that the Flame of Love is something old ladies pray in church. I was talking to leaders in another country with a conspicuous lack of men and they said their husbands joked about it being the ladies’ night out to pray. No, no NO! Yes, it’s great that the women are praying but there are two serious problems in viewing the Flame of Love this way.

First, the Flame of Love is so much more than just another prayer devotion. As a prayer devotion, it is one of the most powerful ever given to the Church with its ability to shatter the influence of evil but it is even bigger than that. It is nothing short of our Blessed Mother’s plan to renew the entire Church and world by the effect of Grace. It is on par with the first Pentecost. Shouldn’t men have a part in this?!

Listen to Jesus’ words:

By her [Mary’s] powerful intercession, she obtained from Me for families this great effusion of grace, which she also wants to extend to the whole world. As she said: ‘Nothing comparable to this has happened ever since the Word became Flesh.’ 1

The Lord Jesus had a really deep conversation with me. . . . .
He spoke to me at length about the time of grace and the Spirit of Love quite comparable to the first Pentecost, flooding the earth with its power. That will be the great miracle drawing the attention of all humanity. All that is the effusion of the effect of grace of the Blessed Virgin’s Flame of Love. 2

1  Elizabeth Kindelmann, The Spiritual Diary (First Edition 2014), 187
2  ibid. 149

And look at how our Blessed Mother describes it:

I assure you, my little one, that I have never before given into your hands such a powerful force of grace, the burning flame of the love of my heart. Ever since the Word became Flesh, I have not undertaken a greater movement than the Flame of Love of my heart who rushes to you. Until now, nothing could blind Satan as much. And it is up to you not to reject it, for this rejection would simply spell disaster. 3

3  ibid. 60

If the first problem is to underestimate the Flame of Love as “just a prayer devotion”, the second is to consign it exclusively to women. The Flame of Love is the greatest force given since Jesus walked the Earth to break the stranglehold of Satan on our families, our countries and our societies – to drive out the influence of evil in the world. IF MEN ARE NOT IN THE VANGUARD OF DRIVING EVIL OUT OF THE WORLD, TELL ME WHO SHOULD BE! Men, this is your calling – your calling to take up spiritual arms and make a difference in this world!

. . . . this priest understood the essential message, which is ‘to blind Satan.’ This is the principal and only purpose of the Flame of Love of the Blessed Virgin. She, herself, promised an outpouring of graces so great as have not happened on earth since the Word became Flesh. 4

4  ibid. 198

Yes, men, if you are not leading the charge to drive out Satan by the effect of grace, who is? The Flame of Love needs you and you need The Flame of Love. Answer the call.

If men are not in the vanguard of driving evil out of the world, tell me who should be!

A Special Note to FATHERS

Fathers, teaching your children to be active participants in grace begins with YOU!

Fathers, it is not enough to try to protect your children in our world; evil is too pervasive and accessible. If all you do is try to protect your children, you will fail. That’s fighting a defensive war and you can’t win a defensive war.

Yes, it is not enough to try to protect our children. We must teach them to go on the offensive; we must make them active participants in the life of grace so that when – not if but when – they are confronted with evil, THEY are the ones driving it out. Yes, the Flame of Love is for children – to bring them deeply into a life of grace – to make them the ones who drive out evil around them.

Fathers, teaching your children to be active participants in grace begins with YOU! You must be an active participant in grace; you must be actively driving evil out from around you; you need to be living the effect of grace of the Flame of Love. You must be the ones who show them the way, not just their mother. When they see YOU living a life of sacrificial love, of making Jesus so present in your life that Satan’s influence is completely driven out, then they will know driving out evil is possible and they will know how to do it.

This is especially true of our sons. You know how much you have been spiritually assaulted and tempted. It is worse for them. Do not leave them without the means to resist. You need to be saints for them; you need to show them the way to holiness and that is what the Flame of Love does; it is a rocket ride to holiness for everyday people. Jesus told Elizabeth Kindelmann:

Do not believe that this is impossible because you are a living proof. I placed you in a family setting, so others could see how they can and ought to live. You serve both the family and God at the same time. 5

ibid. 229

The world needs us to be great saints – not because we are great but because the need is great. Your children need you to be saints to show them that they can be saints. That’s what the Flame of Love does – the greatest outpouring of graces since the Word became flesh. Fathers, be saints for your children by participating in the grace of the Flame of Love. Yes, you need the Flame of Love and the Flame of Love needs you.

The FLAME OF LOVE MOVEMENT and The MONTH OF NOVEMBER: Saving SOULS

During this month of November, we want to remind Flame of Love Devotees and those new to the Flame of Love Movement about Our Blessed Mother’s promise to Elizabeth Kindelmann for the souls of the faithful who are in Purgatory.

The Blessed Mother said to Elizabeth: “Whenever My Flame of Love is invoked and three Hail Mary’s are recited in My honor, a soul is released from Purgatory. During November, the month of the deceased, ten souls will be released from Purgatory for each Hail Mary recited. Suffering souls must also feel the effect of grace of the Flame of Love of My maternal Heart.” (13 October 1962)

My Flame of Love which from My Heart I wish to spread on you in an increasingly large measure also extends to the souls in Purgatory. Pay good attention to what I am saying, write My words down and hand them over to the concerned persons: Families doing the hour of atonement on Thursdays or Fridays will received the special grace of delivering from Purgatory, within eight days, one deceased member of their family after one single day of severe fasting.” [on bread and water] (24 September 1963)

JESUS:Whoever fasts on Monday on bread and water while referring to the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary delivers the soul of a priest from Purgatory. Also, he who follows that prescription will receive the grace, during the octave following his death, to be delivered from Purgatory by My Mother”.

MARY (added later)“For all those who observe absolute fasting regularly on Monday, they can cease it at 6.00 p.m. But instead, they must pray on the same day a five-decade Rosary for the souls in Purgatory.”

MARY: “The priests who observe the fasting on Monday release during each Holy Mass they celebrate during that week, at the moment of consecration, innumerable souls from Purgatory. The religious and the laity who observe absolute fasting on Monday will deliver during that week, every time they receive Communion and at the time they receive the Sacred Body of the Lord, a host of souls from Purgatory.” (August 15, 1980)

 “You see, My daughter, when the Flame of Love of My Heart is inflamed upon the earth, its outpouring of graces flows out to the dying as well. Satan is blinded and with the help of your fervent prayers, Satan’s fight against the dying will cease. Under the serene beam of My Flame of Love, even the most hardened sinners are converted for I do not want any soul to be lost… Make sure that not a single minute goes by during the night without prayer. As long as there is someone awake and praying in honour of My Flame of Love, I promise you that not a single dying person in their surroundings will be damned. The more fervently you pray, the more thoroughly will Satan be blinded, and the dying soul will find renewed strength to decide wisely as to her future destiny.”

The Flame of Love has a VIRTUAL PERPETUAL VIGIL ROOM

JESUS: "Let no creature come between us. Write down my words so others realise that they can only possess God if they come far away from all earthly noise."

 The Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary devotees have 24-hour access to a perpetual vigil room! Many people do not know this. Please feel free to respectfully visit. Many have shared that they like to go for their NIGHT VIGILS. When there, you may pray in silence or join in prayer with others as there are times that a cenacle may be using the room from another country.

GUIDELINES

  • Unlike in a perpetual ADORATION ROOM, in this VIGIL Room, it is not mandatory to remain in complete silence. This is is because it is dedicated to public, communal, vocal prayer.

  • To prevent accidental interruption of prayer, your audio and video are automatically muted when you enter the room. You may unmute if you choose.

  • When entering the room, if a cenacle group in in the process of prayer, please join in!

  • When entering the room, you will be asked to allow access to your microphone and camera, please allow this. (This permission is just for the room and will NOT allow the entire Internet access.)

  • Invite intentions from others at appropriate times (for example, between mysteries.) If the room is empty, you may pray as you like.

  • When others join, please use known prayers such as the Flame of Love Rosary or other associated prayers.

  • If you are leading a prayer and need to depart, please request that someone take your place.

  • If there is excessive noise on your line, one of your Prayerful Companions may mute you. To speak, you will need to unmute.

“I want the holy night vigils – by which I want to save the souls of the dying – to be organised in every parish so there is not even one moment without someone praying in a vigil. This is the instrument that I place in your hands. By this, you and your companions will save the souls of the dying from eternal damnation. By the light of my Flame of Love, Satan will remain blind.” 9 July 1965

The Flame of Love and THE SALVATION OF SOULS

Ireland has a strong tradition of praying for and making sacrifices for  the Holy Souls in Purgatory, particularly inNovember. Our Lady told Elizabeth that when the Hail Mary was prayed three times including the invocation spread the effect of grace of thy Flame of Love over all humanity a soul would be released from Purgatory.

In November, TEN SOULS are released for each FLAME OF LOVE HAIL MARY.

The Holy Souls undergo a period of purification from sin in Purgatory to attain the holiness needed, through the grace of God, to enter into His presence in Heaven. When the Flame of Love spreads over humanity it also extends to the souls in Purgatory. When we unite ourselves to Jesus in praying the Flame of Love Hail Mary, we play our part in the communion of saints, as pilgrims on earth, in helping those in Purgatory attain full remission. The effect of grace through Jesus is to complete their sanctification and so allow them to take the final step to union with God.

Jesus and Our Lady Promise that through The Flame of Love:

JESUS: Whoever practices this fast will themselves be freed within eight days after their death.

MARY: If a family keeps a holy hour on Thursday or Friday, and someone in that family dies, the person will be freed from Purgatory after one day of the fast kept by a family member.

MARY: I will blind Satan so this Flame will save the dying from eternal damnation.

JESUS: Each time you fast, you will free a priest’s soul from purgatory.

JESUS: Through this prayer, Satan will be blind and souls will not be led into sin.

MARY: If at any moment, someone prays three Hail Mary’s in my honor, while referring to the Flame of Love, they will free a soul from purgatory.

JESUS: With my Flame of Love I want the home to come alive again with love. I want to unite scattered families.

MARY: I, the beautiful Ray of Dawn, will blind Satan. No dying soul should be condemned. My Flame of Love will now be lit.

JESUS: When I encounter one holy person, I pardon many.

MARY: When the Flame of Love pours out, my love will destroy the satanic hatred that contaminates the world. The greatest number of souls will be set free.

JESUS: By observing this fast, priests will be freed from purgatory on the eighth day after their death.

The FIRST All-Ireland Conference and LAUNCH of the Flame of Love Movement Ireland

The Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Movement ‘officially launched’ at our first All-Ireland Conference on 7 May 2022 in Newry, N. Ireland.

This was the first time that devotees who had been praying together during COVID lockdowns throughout the preceding year were able to meet face-to-face after Paul Ogelsby first introduced Virtual Cenacles to Ireland (with help from the USA and Canadian Movements and John Sullivan III, The International Director of Communication and Dissemination – who many may recognise from The Flame of Love training videos).

The Conference was organised by a small volunteer working group and John Sullivan – who travelled to Ireland from his home in the USA fir this official launch. The first National Director, Kielty Oberlin, and the whole leadership team was announced at the Conference in Newry. (Geraldine Halton, Secretary; Joe Sheehan, Treasurer; Frances Devaney, Spokesperson and Eileen Boden, Spokesperson). Others who were part of the working group included; Marie B Kelly, Dymphna Largey and Alice Gibson.

Since that time, the working group has continued to heed Our Lady’s call to spread her Flame far and wide. We are in the process of establishing the Flame of Love Movement as an Irish Charity and coordinating more efficient communication with all who are interested in learning more about the Flame of Love (this website is one of these methods). We are also making sure to build a database of all interested in hearing about latest developments (Including: our upcoming Formation Retreats, Thursday Global Reparation Hours, introducing New Cenacles through email, social media and a newsletter). Please fill out our contact form so that you are sure to hear about what is happening within the Flame of Love Movement in Ireland and beyond! Please let us know if you have begun an in-person Flame of Love Prayer Cenacle (or would like to) and we are grateful to help.

Explaining the UNITY PRAYER

Jesus taught Elizabeth The Unity Prayer. It includes every aspect of the human person (our thoughts, our feelings and actions). It expresses Jesus’ desire that we allow Him to live in us completely – in every moment of every day. True spirituality is not just trying to do God’s will, but allowing Jesus, living in you by grace, to do God’s will. Following the way of life described in the the Flame of Love and the Unity Prayer, quickly moves one to deep union with Jesus as we literally participate in His life by allowing Him in ours.

ELIZABETH shared in her Diary:

“Then the sweet Redeemer asked me to pray with Him the prayer that expresses His deepest desires: I made this prayer completely mine. The Lord meditated on it many times with me, asserting that these are His eternal longings. He taught me this prayer, so that I would in turn teach it to others. With all our strength and mind, let us make our own His eternal thoughts and burning desires.”

 JESUS said about this prayer:

JESUS: “This prayer is an instrument in your hands. By collaborating with Me, Satan will be blinded by it; and because of his blindness, souls will not be led into sin.”

JESUS: “Through this prayer, Satan will be blind and souls will not be led into sin. ( p.25 ) 

The LORD explained: “Satan being blind signifies a worldwide triumph of my Sacred Heart, the freedom of souls and a full opening of the road of salvation.” (p. 87)

It is by the virtue of the great outpouring of grace in the Flame of Love movement, that it is a rocket ride to sanctity. This prayer is a shortcut. It reveals at the beginning, what many saints only discovered at the end. Jesus wants the joy of obeying His Father again. He asks you to allow him this gift.
