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

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.

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.

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.

The 3rd Retreat HAS BEEN MOVED TO 28th JANUARY 2023 at 1:00 PM

The 3rd Retreat is on the 14th January 2023 – ALL ARE WELCOME

The Third Session of our Four-Part Retreat Series BUILDING ON SOLID ROCK was postponed from the 14th to the 28th of JANUARY 2023 at 1:00 PM. The date was moved because of the illness of John Sullivan. He is now on the mend and we pray for his continued healing.

The presentation, led by John Sullivan, International Assistant Coordinator of the Flame of Love Movement, will run a little over two hours. Those who can stay are invited to then join us to pray the Flame of Love Rosary and the Chaplet of the Adored Jesus.

In the 3rd part of the Series, we will take a deep dive into the Unity Prayer as the “Why” of Salvation. One cannot overestimate the importance of the Unity Prayer. It is not just the heart of the Flame of Love Movement but it is the heart of all Christianity. Join us as we explore the binding love that is the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and how it fundamentally changes our relationship with God. We will examine from the scriptures many examples of distorted relationships with God – distortions which we may find painfully familiar. We will see how literally Jesus IS the way and how union with Him IS salvation.  It is only in this context that we can properly understand the practices of the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Flame of Love itself.

With the breath-taking pace at which our Blessed Mother is spreading the Flame of Love of her Immaculate Heart around the world, it is important that those doing the blessed work of spreading it understand it well so information is conveyed accurately. Frankly, it is not necessary to understand the Flame of Love in order to pass it heart to heart but it is helpful especially as we encounter more priests and bishops who are interested.

This series will provide a solid grounding for the Flame of Love at the heart of the Church. The Flame of Love is all about Grace – it is the greatest outpouring of graces since the Word was made flesh. If we do not understand Grace, we will not understand the Flame of Love. If we do not understand what Salvation is, we will not understand Grace. This series will give the overview of Salvation, the role of Grace and thus the critical importance of the Flame of Love to bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Divine Heart of Jesus as the effect of Grace.

If you registered for either of the previous sessions, you do not need to re-register. The link and Handouts will be sent by email the day before the event to anyone who has registered. We hope to see you all there. Also, please feel free to share this invitation to family and friends.

A Flame of Love PERSONAL TESTIMONY: By Marie Kelly

The Holy Spirit Guides Us in Every Choice and Decision by Marie Kelly

I heard about the Flame of Love Movement through the 32 County Prayer Group during Covid (early 2021).  I prayed the Flame of Love rosary on my own initially and then joined a Flame of Love Virtual Cenacle. I felt a strong urge to bring the Flame of Love Devotion to my own parish – Roscrea, Co. Tipperary.  I think that this inspiration may have come from my consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  It was a ‘consecration pact’ – my part was to bring souls to Jesus and Jesus’s part was to look after my personal interests.  The more I would keep ‘my part’, the more Jesus would look after my interests.

A friend and I had already set up ‘Mothers Prayers’ in St. Cronan’s, Roscrea and we were holding our meetings in the Parish Centre there.  I was also a member of the Legion, and of Joan Buckley’s Monthly Prayer Group in Moneygall through which I had met others who had helped me along my spiritual path.

My desire to bring this devotion to my parish led me to join the virtual Flame of Love Leadership Meetings, and to get to know the leaders of this devotion which was in its early set-up phase in Ireland in 2022.  Initially one of our leaders, Frances Devaney, was going to give the Introduction to the Flame of Love in Roscrea.  Then John Sullivan, Assistant International Co-Ordinator of the Flame of Love Movement (who is based in the U.S.) announced that he would join us in the Dromantine Retreat Centre, Newry for our Formal Launch and First Day of Prayer, Formation and Fellowship on 7th May, 2022.  John said that he would stay in Ireland for six more days and give Introductory Presentations on the Flame of Love wherever we could organise to hold them.

About six weeks before the Introduction in Roscrea I was nominated to the Parish Council in my parish.  I believe that this was Our Lady putting me in touch with others to help plan and promote the event.

I had the privilege of having John stay at my house for two nights whilst giving the Introduction in St. Cronan’s Catholic Church, Roscrea on Sunday, 8th May.  John introduced the Flame of Love Devotion at the 11.30 mass to a full church.  Then we had a longer session at 4pm which was attended by 70 people who came from various surrounding towns as well as from Roscrea itself.  After the formal introduction was over a group formed around John and they had further discussions with John for an hour or so.

A Flame of Love cenacle commenced in my parish shortly after the Introduction.  We have had seven members from the commencement.  We meet at 7.30pm every Wednesday in the Parish Centre, St. Cronan’s Catholic Church, Roscrea.  One lady in our group had been praying the Flame of Love rosary with her family for 3-4 years having heard about the Devotion on EWTN.  She had not met anyone else in the Flame of Love Movement previous to the Introduction to the Devotion in Roscrea.

Anyone who would like to join us on a Wednesday evening is most welcome.

Our Lady and Jesus placed people around me to help prior to the Introduction, on the day of the Introduction and later to set up the cenacle in Roscrea.  It is amazing how God places the people we need around us when we do something to promote his interests.

After our Dromantine Retreat a volunteer was needed to distribute our Flame of Love Literature.  I felt urged again by the Holy Spirit to take on this role which would help to bring souls to Jesus.  Again this was accomplishing ‘my part of the Sacred Heart Consecration Pact’ which I had taken three years ago.  These are not coincidences, but God-Incidences and they happen every day!

Come Holy Spirit, come, come by means of the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
