What is the FLAME of LOVE ?
The Flame of Love is:
The very gentle, yet most-powerful Flame – emanating from Mary’s Immaculate Heart;
The Flame of Love is:
The greatest grace that God, the Father, has given to mankind since the Word became Incarnate, Redeemed us, and left us His Church and the Sacraments.
The Flame of Love is:
Jesus Christ, Himself – when Mary sends the Flame of Love from her heart, into our heart, she is sending her Divine Son – INTO OUR HEART.
· The Center of the Flame of Love is adoration before the Blessed Sacrament and the diary stresses a nighttime hour, when, normally, no one is there.
· Our Lord wants someone adoring the Blessed Sacrament in every parish, at every hour.
The Flame of Love is:
A devotion…. But more than that. It is a Cause, a Movement, a Way of Life.
· has a special prayer, “Spread the effect of grace of Thy Flame of Love over all humanity. People should say this prayer as an ejaculatory prayer.
· However, Our Lady wants this prayer inserted into the Hail Mary after the phrase, “Pray for us sinners.”
· The Devotion asks for a Family Holy Hour.
· The Devotion includes a strict fast of bread and water, every Monday until 6 PM….. Thursdays and Fridays are also days of strict fast until 6PM…… (Let me interject something here, my friends. Do not be timid about the fasting. We should do what we can, and gradually improve. Also, the fast covers only breakfast and lunch on these days.. we are able to eat a complete dinner. Believe me, the fasting sounds much more strict than it actually is).
· The heart and center of the Cause is the Flame of Love of Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart.
· The Flame of Love is the greatest grace God has given the world in the past 2,000 years.
· The purpose of the Flame is to blind Satan so he loses control over souls. These souls will regain their freedom, so they can choose eternal life.
· The central goal of the Cause is the salvation of every soul in the world.
· Another important effect is the freeing of souls from Purgatory.
· Although all these tremendous graces will come from the Flame of Love, people must know about this Flame, and how they are expected to respond….. This is the CAUSE.
· People are encouraged to receive the Flame of Love, and pass it on. The important means to accomplish this is the forming of parish prayer groups, in your church or in someone’s home.
The WAY of LIFE
· Intertwined with these prayers and sacrifices is the spirit of belonging TOTALLY to GOD, Growing in spirituality. All that is not of God, and which absorbs the human heart, MUST BE REMOVED.
When we do our part to spread Flame of Love ---- the effect of the grace of the Flame of Love is that souls are saved from damnation, souls in Purgatory are released, and the time comes closer and closer when Jesus will send His Spirit, the Holy Spirit, to renew the face of the earth.
2- Is this from Mary ?
The Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is from both Jesus and Mary
JESUS (6/24/63) –“ If you ask for souls, can I refuse your petitions? No. Otherwise, I would be working against My work of salvation. I always hear your persevering prayer” ….. persevering prayer * ……
JESUS ( 7/26/63) – Hell is swallowing those souls, created in the image and likeness of my heavenly Father. They fall into the clutches of satan. The Flame of Love of My Mother can soothe the sorrow of My Heart.”
Mary (Oct.,’62 and Feb. 2, 1982) – Request of the Blessed Virgin to all her children, “When you say the prayer that honors me, the Hail Mary, include this petition in the following manner:
· Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with Thee. Blessed art Thou among women and blessed is the fruit of Thy womb – JESUS. Holy May, Mother of God, pray for us sinners – spread the effect of grace of Thy Flame of Love over all humanity, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.” This is not a new prayer formula; it must be a constant petition. *
Mary (Aug. 1, 1962) – “ I will support your work with miracles as never seen before, …… and that(which) the Reparation to my Divine Son will accomplish imperceptibly, silently.”
Mary (10/19/62) – “ My Flame of Love has become so incandescent that I want to spread on you, not only its light, but also its warmth, with ALL ITS POWER. My Flame is so great that I can no longer keep it within me; it leaps out at you with EXPLOSIVE FORCE. My love that is spreading will overcome the satanic hatred that contaminates the world, so that the greatest number of souls is saved from damnation.
3-Why Now ?
· Souls are going to hell in unprecedented numbers.. Many are basically good people…
· Our world is in worse condition now, than at the time of the great flood … and getting worse every day
o Jesus said, “ The Flame of Love is to your generation what the ark was to Noah’s generation”
· Mary said that God is already so much offended – that was at Fatima, almost 100 years ago
· Life is no longer sacred
· Marriage is being scandalized
· Families are in shambles
· Mass attendance is way down
· The world is caught-up in ‘noise’ and ‘things’
· Personal time with GOD… experiencing an unprecedented intimacy with Jesus …… Many people just do not care about these graces.
From Fr. Gabrielle Amorth – Chief Exorcist at the Vatican –
Today more than ever, the world is in need of prayer and meditation. It is in need of prayer because people have forgotten God, and without God the world has put itself on the edge of a precipice. This is why in Her messages, Our Lady insists so much on prayer. Without God's help, Satan wins. The world is also in need of meditation because if the great Christian truths are forgotten, souls become void. This void is grabbed up by the enemy, and he fills it with his lies. And today we see the results with widespread belief in superstition and occultism.
The most obvious danger for our society today is the downfall of the family. The rhythm of today's world has broken the family unity. Little time is spent together, and even when the family is together, its members don't speak because the television speaks. Where are the families which recite the Rosary together in the evenings? Pope Pius XII insisted in his own time: “If you pray the Rosary together, you will experience peace in your families; you will get on together.”
4- Is the Flame of Love different from previous Devotions ?
· The Flame of Love is a devotion, & IT IS DIFFERENT ! BUT, It’s NOT simply a devotion. It is MUCH MORE ….The Flame of Love REDEFINES the word devotion. It is the greatest Grace that God, the Father, has given to mankind since His only begotten Son, the Word, became Flesh, established His Church to teach and guide us; left us HIs Sacraments to cleanse and sustain us; and Redeemed us on the CROSS.
· A Devotion – yes – because it includes PRAYERS that serve a purpose
o To blind satan (remove his power)
o To save souls from Hell – by restoring their ability to use their free will to choose where they will spend eternity – to respond to Grace
o To release souls from Purgatory
o To help priests
· Also it incudes ACTIONS THAT SERVE A PURPOSE
o Flame of Love Rosary (and Mary’s GARLAND)
o Fasting – sacrifice; reparation
o To INCREASE Mass attendance - the Holy Sacrifice of the MASS is the MOST POWERFUL means of blinding satan
o To increase Perpetual Adoration- Jesus wants someone adoring Him in the Eucharist, at every moment, in every parish in the world.
o Family Prayer (Holy Hour) to reunite families.
o Holy Hours – Adoring – especially at night, when normally no one is there
But it’s also a Movement - Once we receive the Flame of Love in our heart, we must pass-it-on to others; to everyone we can reach.. the entire world…… leave no one behind.
AND the Flame is a Cause – People cannot respond unless they know what is expected of them… unless they understand and appreciate the promises given by Our Blessed Mother.
AND It’s a Way of Life because we literally GROW closer to Christ, and Him to us… JESUS IS the Flame of Mary’s Heart. He’ll work in us and through us in a special Way.
o We must remove, from our lives, everything that is not of God. The more we empty ourselves of ‘things’ and ‘noise’ the more JESUS can fill us with the ‘water’ of His Holy Spirit – like the water jars at Cana…. to the BRIM. When we are completely filled with His Spirit, cannot Jesus change us, spiritually, from water, into wine…. And cannot Jesus change wine into His Precious Blood? … His Body and Blood….. if /when that happens, are we not ONE WITH HIM? – “ I live now, not I, but CHRIST LIVETH IN ME.”
o THINK ABOUT THAT – what a concept – to be ONE with GOD !!! We in HIM, and HE in us.
Could this be what St. Louis de Montfort meant when he referred to the saints of the latter times – Saints who will be greater than most of the previous saints, as the Cedars of Lebanon are to little shrubs?
Could this be what Pope Saint John Paul II meant when he talked of the
NEW AND DIVINE HOLINESS OF THE THIRD CHRISTIAN MILLENNIUM ?
JESUS said to Elizabeth Kindelman – and to us - regarding the FLAME of LOVE…
“THIS MUST BE YOUR PRIMARY PUROSE IN LIFE.”

· Costa Rica
o Archbishop Charles Chaput – Archdiocese of Philadelphia
The FLAME has large followings in Hungary, Ecuador, Canada – and all around the world.
MARY - 1962
“I will place a beam of light in your hands. This is the Flame of Love of my heart. Add your love to the Flame, and pass it to others…… with this Flame you will light all the hearts of the world.”
“The inextinguishable fire of my Flame of Love is burning in your soul. You see how wonderful it is. I have never given you such a powerful force of grace. Since the Word became Flesh, I have never given such a great movement as the Flame of Love, that comes to you now. Until now, there has been nothing that so blinds satan. DO NOT REFUSE THIS GIFT. TO DO SO WOULD BRING GREAT RUIN.”
The Propagation prayer, written specifically for the Flame of Love, was personally approved by Pope Paul, VI.
Propagation Prayer – Flame of Love
Mary, Heavenly Mother, you love your children so much that you offer us to your Divine Son, Jesus, on the Cross, to obtain for us the Heavenly Father’s forgiveness, so that all who believe in Him may receive eternal life.
With filial confidence we pray to you, Blessed Virgin, that with the Flame of Love of your Immaculate Heart, kindled by the Holy Spirit , you will ignite the hearts of all humanity so that, like you, we will have a perfect love for God and neighbor.
Help us to transmit this Holy Flame to all people of goodwill so that the Flame of Love will extinguish the fire of hatred everywhere on earth, and Jesus, Prince of Peace, will be the King and Center of all hearts, in the Sacrament of Love on the Throne of our altars. Amen.
This prayer was personally approved by Pope Paul VI
8- What does the Flame do?
· The Flame of Mary’s Heart blinds satan
· Saves souls
· (From Cardinal Ruiz – Ecuador) Among the other benefits that we’ve already mentioned, “by means of the Flame of Love, we discover the innumerable treasures of the Five Holy Wounds of Christ, which are not only the refuge of the soul, but, also, the lesson of the CROSS that we need to understand when we make the sign of the CROSS, repeating one of the most simple – yet most profound, prayers.
Mary – 4/13/62 - to Elizabeth – “This is the fire of union which I obtained from the heavenly FATHER, through the merits of the wounds of my Divine Son.
Mary – 12/6/64 – We will put out fire with fire: the fire of hatred, with the fire of LOVE.
9- What, specifically, would I be asked to do
AS MUCH AS YOU C AN !!! ASAP !!!!!!!!
St Theresa of Avila said, “Christ has no body now but yours. No hands, no feet on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes through which he looks with compassion on this world. Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good. Yours are the hands through which he blesses all the world. Yours are the hands, yours are the feet, yours are the eyes, you are his body. Christ has no body now on earth but yours.”
What was Jesus’ primary purpose in becoming Incarnate ?
Souls ! SOULS ! SOULS !
Why does Mary ask for our help ??
Souls ! SOULS ! SOULS !
Why must we pray, fast, receive the Flame and Pass-It-On ?
Souls ! SOULS ! SOULS !
Mary (July 22-23) – “The means to save souls: Sacrifice and Prayer, these are your instruments.”
10- Why ME ?
There is a list of names in heaven of all those who are being called to become sparks (disciples - learning), so that they may become flames (apostles – share it; spread it), so that the flames become an inferno. And your name is on the list !!
How do I know this ? Because EVERYONE’S NAME is on the list – every man, woman and child of goodwill is being called to duty… not only to form an army, but to become a special force - a very special force – one which will never quit, never get tired, never say, “No,” never give-in to, or be afraid of, the enemy – satan. Remember, he is a creature… special powers? Yes… but WE HAVE MARY, so BE NOT AFRAID !!
Did not our heavenly Mother say to us – through St. Juan Diego, at Guadalupe, in 1531,
· “Let nothing afflict you, and do not be afraid;
· Am I not here, who am your Mother ?
· Are you not under my shadow and protection ?
· Are you not in the crossing of my arms?”
Did not Mary give us
1. the Rosary through St. Dominic … The prayer which is the most powerful in the world – except for the Holy Sacrifice of the MASS;
2. and the Miraculous Medal;
3. the Brown Scapular;
4. And, now, the FLAME of LOVE of her Immaculate Heart?
