Because it is our Blessed Mother's time to take back our world from Satan's influence - to end the deceit, lies, anger, and violence - to put out the fire of hatred with the Flame of Love in a great outpouring of Grace. Yes,in these tragic and dangerous days, we all have the freedom to discover a great and awesome hope, in a new Marian movement that is sweeping across the world called, "The Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Movement." The Flame of Love Movement is based on locutions received by a woman named Elizabeth Kindelmann, from Jesus and Mary, which she recorded in her diary, The Flame of Love...
Of this urgent spiritual phenomenon, Mary said, “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” (Elizabeth Kindelmann, The Flame of Love, abridged English version, p. 32).
The urgency of this movement is underscored in the tone of the Blessed Virgin Mary's first message. Elizabeth later wrote in her diary that The Blessed Mother could hardly be heard, she was sobbing so much. Our Queen of Sorrows came to Elizabeth (who represents us) sobbing, begging her (us) to help her in the sorrowful, sacrificial and loving act of co-reemption - which depends very much on our willful cooperation:
April 13, 1962 - Friday of Sorrows: I asked the Blessed Virgin to engrave the Holy Wounds of her Divine Son in my heart and urged her to have more compassion for us. My tears flowed abundantly as I could feel the indescribable pain and the sobs of the Mother of Sorrows deep in my heart.
Sobbing, she said to me:
Mary: "My little Carmelite, so many sins are committed in this country. Help me. Let us save the country. I place a beam of light in your hands; it is the Flame of Love of my heart. Add your love to this Flame and pass it on to others, my little one."
I would like to place in your hands a new instrument, which I want you to accept and appreciate the importance of, because my
heart looks upon my country with great affliction.
Take this Flame, my daughter, you are the first one I am handing it to. It is the Flame of Love of my heart. Ignite your own heart
with it and then pass it on to others."
The Blessed Virgin was sobbing so much that I could barely hear what she was saying. I asked her what I had to do. On behalf of
the entire country, I promised her everything, so I could relieve her pain because my own heart was on the verge of shattering.
Our Lady shared with her the reason for her sorrow: “My anguish comes from the danger that threatens the whole world because families are no longer places of prayer." What a revelation! The danger that threatens the world is not due to nuclear armament, war, disease, or technology. No, rather, the danger that threatens the world is because families no longer pray. It doesn't take much to imagine why families no longer pray. They are broken and torn apart by so many sins: adultery, pornography, divorce, abortion, contraception, division, hate, unforgiveness, selfishness.
Satan has been attacking the families with a laser-like focus in these end times, because he knows that the future of the world lies in each family. Sister Lucia dos Santos of Fatima prophesied to humanity that “the final battle between the Lord and the reign of Satan will be about marriage and the family.” Those days are upon us and have been for some time now.
In 1976 John Paul II (then Cardinal Karol Wojtyla) prophetically stated:
“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has ever experienced. I do not think that the wide circle of the American Society, or the whole wide circle of the Christian Community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-church, between the gospel and the anti-gospel, between Christ and the Antichrist.”
We are in that final battle over the family today! Jesus shared with Elizabeth that we can help families by making reparation for them. This is precisely what Our Lady came sobbing, begging us to do. Our prayers can help save souls that would otherwise be lost! Our prayers can help spread this grace to families that are destroyed and unable to come together in unity on their own, to pray for themselves!
“Satan and his forces want to destroy families. You are a mother and you know the many ways in which a family is torn apart. To save families, throw yourself into the furnace of suffering. How many sins come from destroyed families. Make reparation for these families.”
As much as Satan is attacking the unity of the family, our enemy is also mercilessly attacking our Faith and our one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. Jesus shared with Elizabeth some dire and hopeful words:
“The Church and the whole world are in danger. You cannot change the situation. Only the Holy Trinity, through the unified intercession of the Blessed Virgin, the angels, the saints, and souls in purgatory can help you...Go into battle. Satan tries to ruin the good. Christians cannot be satisfied with little efforts, here or there. Trust My Mother. The world of the future is being prepared. The smile of my Mother will light up the whole earth.”
Our Lady also begged us to enter into battle. Both Jesus and Mary used such words as "enter into battle," because we are in a spiritual war!
“Enter into battle. My Flame of Love will blind Satan to the degree that you spread it to the whole world. This Flame will work miracles in their hearts. They will communicate this miracle to others. No need for this miracle to be authenticated. I will authenticate the miracle in each soul. All will recognize the outpouring of the Flame of Love.
The terrible situation we are in now, Mary likens to a volcano about to explode - a hurricane! But she always accompanies her warnings with great prophecies of her triumph! Her messages to Elizabeth echo her messages to the children at Fatima: "In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph!"
Our Lady continued the teaching. “Earth is experiencing the calm before the storm, like a volcano about to explode. Earth is now in this terrible situation. The crater of hatred is boiling. I, the beautiful Ray of Dawn, will blind Satan. No dying soul should be condemned. My Flame of Love will now be lit. It will be a terrible storm, a hurricane that will want to destroy faith. In that dark night, heaven and earth will be illuminated by the Flame of Love that I offer to souls.
Furthermore, if you’re familiar with the messages Our Lady of La Salette gave to the two children, Maximin Giraud and Mélanie Calvat in 1846, they bear a striking connection to her most recent messages to Elizabeth. To the children, she warned:
"In the year 1864, Lucifer together with a large number of demons will be unloosed from Hell; they will put an end to faith little by little, even in those dedicated to God. They will blind them in such a way, that, unless they are blessed with a special grace, these people will take on the spirit of these angels of Hell; several religious institutions will lose all faith and will lose many souls."
What is striking is that the grace given through the Flame of Love is a powerful grace to combat the demonic specifically by blinding Satan. Interestingly, Our Lady told Elizabeth: we will "fight fire with fire." This grace seems to be that "special grace" she prophesied of at La Salette, because the purpose of great outpouring of grace of the Flame of Love is to blind Satan, during this time when the enemy has unusual powers to blind us! Talk about fighting fire with fire! Whatever the case may be, it is very clear that God has sent the Flame of Love to us as an antidote for our troubled times. Jesus said it would be an “ark” to us as in the days of Noah, to help us survive the coming attacks on the faith.
Jesus refers to those to follow his command to "enter into battle" as his "special fighting force!" We must unflinchingly trust in Him, bravely head straight into the storm and tirelessly persevere - even when it seems all is lost!
One day in August, Jesus said, “All are invited to join my special fighting force. The coming of my Kingdom must be your only purpose in life. My words will reach a multitude of souls. Trust! I will help all of you in a miraculous way.” He continued, “Do not love comfort. Do not be cowards. Do not wait. Confront the storm to save souls. Give yourselves to the work. If you do nothing, you abandon the earth to Satan and to sin. Open your eyes and see all the dangers that claim victims and threaten your own souls.”
“Do not abandon the battle. By my Flame of Love, a new era of grace, never before known on the earth, will begin.” As the darkness covers the earth, we can meditate on the words Our Lady and Our Lord spoke to Elizabeth Kindelman:
“There has never been a time of grace like this since the Word became flesh. Blinding Satan will shake the world…the Spirit of Pentecost will flood the earth with its power and a great miracle will gain the attention of all humanity. This will be the effect of grace of the Flame of Love...Due to lack of faith, earth is entering into darkness, but earth will experience a great jolt of faith. People will believe and will create a new world. By the Flame of Love, confidence and faith will take root. The face of the earth will be renewed because something like this has not happened since the Word became Flesh. Earth, although flooded with sufferings, will be renewed by Our Lady’s intercession."
Please join Jesus's special fighting force, to help save souls in our country, as Elizabeth did for the souls in Hungary. America the Beautiful was consecrated to The Immaculate Heart of Mary, on the eve of the Centennial Anniversary of Our Lady’s apparitions at Fatima, Oct. 13, 2017 - a consecration which in and of itself was also made in prayerful petition to the Holy Spirit for a new Marian Pentecost for our families, our Nation and the World! What an outpouring of graces we will receive to assist us in Her Great Cause of spreading the effect of the grace of her Flame of Love, which will be - among many other promises - the Triumph of Her Immaculate Heart and the very Marian Pentecost we have been praying for)!!
