Introducing the New Flame of Love Prayer Book

by Marie Kelly, Literature Coordinator for the Flame of Love Movement, Ireland

A small team have been working on the new Flame of Love Prayer Book since Easter.  Our Printers have promised to print the new prayer books during the last week of September.  As soon as we receive them, we will be in touch then with those who have already contacted us to order the new Prayer Book. The books will be for sale at our forthcoming Flame of Love Mass on Saturday, 7th October in Bray in Dublin Oak Academy (Kilcroney Lane, Kilcroney Castle), where the new edition of the prayer book will be formally launched.

The Prayer Book was re-typed on new software with some new sections added:

  • the Flame of Love Chaplet of the Adored Jesus, 
  • prayer for the Intercession of Elizabeth Kindelmann,
  • how to join Jitsu for virtual rosaries and cenacles, 
  • how to register a physical Flame of Love Cenacle, 
  • ordering Flame of Love Literature including the Spiritual Diary,
  • a section about our Global Holy Hour of Reparation very Thursday and on our Virtual International Cenacle,
  • an outline of the Five Effects of the Flame of Love,
  • More Promises as well as Commands, Directions and Words given to Elizabeth Kindelmann.

The following sections were updated:

  • the introduction, 
  • the prayer intentions,
  • the weekly Flame of Love Daily Offerings,
  • each mystery of the rosary is now shown on 2 pages,
  • the rosary meditations have changed slightly in that we are now reading the words as given to Elizabeth Kindelmann; and the date of each meditation in the Spiritual Diary is now quoted,
  • the prayer for the spread of the Flame of Love has been moved into the Cenacle Prayers section.

We hope that the new edition of the Prayer Book will help to promote the Flame of Love Rosary and to encourage people to read the Spiritual Diary of Elizabeth Kindelmann.  The Spiritual Diary is truly a beautiful book of love, as well as an instrument drawing all readers closer to God

Directions

By Car:  Southbound on the M11 just crossing into Co. Wicklow, it turns back into N11.  Take Exit 7 and stay left and you come to the roundabout where there is a Circle K and there take the first exit, cross over the motorway and come to a second roundabout and there take the first exit towards Kilcroney.  At about 250 meters to the right is the entrance to Dublin Oak Academy.  Take the driveway past the pitches and first building until you come to the castle. There is plenty of parking. If you’re taking the northbound on the M11/N11 it’s easier: just pass Kilmacanogh and take Exit 7 and you come to the same roundabout and you’re only 250 meters away.

By Dart: take it to Bray and then get a taxi.

Flame of Love IRELAND members attended LIGHT THE FIRE on the Hill of Slane, Co Meath, Sunday 6th August 2023

Archbishop Eamonn Martin celebrated mass on World Youth Day at Slane, in a Light the Fire of faith service featuring Sr Briege McKenna, Fr. Pable Escriva de Romani and, Eurovision’s Dana.

In the Spirit of World Youth Day, pilgrims from across Ireland are invited to join Archbishop Eamon Martin, at the Hill of Slane, County Meath on August 6th for rosary, mass, and healing service.

Dana, one of Ireland’s most famous singer/songwriters, will sing her new song, Light the Fire. Her new song is an anthem inspired by St Patrick’s lighting of the Easter fire at Slane in 433AD in defiance of King Laoire. In remembrance and to renew our faith in Ireland, the Paschal candle will also be lit as part of the ceremony.

If anyone has more pictures to share of the day, please forward to us!

We thank God for the Spirit filled event which took place 5/6th May. We were blessed to have Fr. Fazio for the second year in a row. We thank those who travelled from all over Ireland, the UK and Germany. We also thank all those who gave their personal testimonies.

Fiona Connolly started the first Cenacle in Ireland in St. Michaels, Killeen, Newry before we had any prayer cards or Cenacle booklets. We thank Fiona for coming to our Conference to share her story with us. She also shared her Flame of Love with us for the event. We are so grateful and it has enkindled our desire to acquire our own pilgrim statue…

We were also joined by Flame of Love Devotees from the UK: Liz Ansah; Pauline Gallagher; Mary Martin; Charles and Adelina McEwan. We thank them for travelling to the conference. Liz gave a moving testimony of Our Lady calling her back to the Flame of Love while in Medjugorje. Liz is now the UK National Coordinator.

We also thank Kate Mulligan Doherty for agreeing to come to speak with us and recounting her amazing story and deeply personal relationship with Jesus. She brought lots of insight into the value of suffering and shared with us her story of receiving the gift to suffer with Joy. Kate gave us hope for our family members with her humorous account of introducing the Unity Prayer to her husband. Kate brought relics of several saints and let each of us spend time praying with each relic. Fr. Fazio blessed everyone present with the relics.

We were also delighted to have Paul Oglesby, Ireland’s spark for the Flame of love movement, also join us in Dromantine, as Paul has been ill.

ANNOUNCING: The Flame of love NOVENA Begins 24th JANUARY 2023

by Geraldine Halton on January 2023

In Preparation for the FEAST DAY of the FLAME OF LOVE OF THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY, on 2nd February (which is shared with Candlemas), we will begin to pray our 9-Day Flame of Love Novena on Tuesday January 24th. The Novena will finish on Wednesday, 1st February which is the Vigil of the FEAST DAY and also St. Brigid’s Day. 

The intention for this 2023 Novena is to promote the spread of the Flame of Love into more and more Irish Parishes with a special focus on men and youth. 

We will pray each day of the Novena Prayers at our usual online Cenacles in the jit.si, folirlcar23 Room and at the 8pm Rosary in the  jit.si, folirlrosaryea Room.


The NOVENA DAILY MEDITATIONS can also be found in Section Three of our IRISH FLAME OF LOVE REFERENCE BOOK OF PRAYERS and accessed on the HOMEPAGE of our website https://flameoflove.ie or simply by CLICKING HERE

MARY: “Put immediately into action the outpouring of graces of my Flame of Love. To your group, I give a wonderful strength to all and to each one in particular. Your responsibility is great but your work will not be in vain. There must not be a single soul missing in this common effort. The soft light of my Flame of Love will light up, spreading fire over the entire surface of the earth. Satan, humiliated and reduced to powerlessness, will not be able to exercise his power. However, do not seek to prolong these birth pangs.”
