About the Flame of Love

The devotion to the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary finds its origin in the revelations of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary to Elizabeth Kindelmann, a Hungarian mother of six, between the years 1961 and 1982. Elizabeth died on April 11, 1985. Through her, the Virgin Mary placed into our hands a new means: the Flame of Love of Her Immaculate Heart. The Blessed Virgin Mary revelations as well as those of Our Lord Jesus Christ do not apply to Hungary alone, but to the whole world through the Holy Father.
These revelations have been transcribed by Elizabeth in her Spiritual Diary which, together with the Holy Gospels and the Teaching of the Church, is at the root of the spirituality of the Flame of Love Movement. On June 6, 2009 his Eminence Cardinal Peter Erdö, Archbishop of Esztergom-Budapest and President of the Council of Episcopal Conferences of Europe granted his  Imprimatur number 494-4/2009 to the Hungarian original Spiritual Diary of Elizabeth Kindelmann, authorizing the publication of the messages given to her by the Lord Jesus and the Blessed Virgin Mary.

The Flame of Love and its mystery

The Virgin Mary wants the devotion to the Flame of Love of Her Immaculate Heart to spread throughout the world so that the greatest number of Her children may respond to Her urgent plea. Through the Flame of Love, we are all invited to take part in the Work of Salvation by blinding Satan, the source of all evil, and thus help the Lord Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary to save souls. This is what the Flame of Love wants to accomplish. The Virgin Mary: “This Flame of Graces coming from My Immaculate Heart must go from heart to heart. It will be the Great Miracle whose Light will blind Satan. It is the Fire of Love and of the Union. We shall fight fire with fire: the fire of hate with the Fire of Love! I obtained this Grace from the Eternal Father on your behalf by virtue of the Five Blessed Wounds of My Divine Son.” The Lord Jesus: “I could compare this torrential flood to the first Pentecost. It will submerge the earth by the power of the Holy Spirit. All mankind will take heed at the time of this great miracle. Here comes the torrential flow of the Flame of Love of My Most Holy Mother. The world, darkened already by the lack of faith, will undergo formidable tremors and then people will believe! These jolts will give rise to a new world by the power of faith. Trust, confirmed by faith, will take root in souls and the face of the earth will thus be renewed. For never has such a flow of grace ever been given since the Word became Flesh. This renewing of the earth, tested by suffering, will take place through the power and the imploring force of the Blessed Virgin!”

The Means

We are given several means to put in effect the power of the Flame of Love: “Our Blessed Mother is asking us to add the following supplication to the “Hail Mary” in the usual Rosary and to make it known to the whole world: “From now on, any time you pray to Me, add the following request: Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with Thee, blessed are Thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of Thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, spread the effect of grace of Thy Flame of Love over all of humanity, now and at the hour of our death. Amen. With this prayer, you will blind Satan.”
The bishop asked Elizabeth: “Why should we recite the very old Ave Maria differently?” On February 2, 1982, the Lord answered: “It is exclusively thanks to the effective petitions of the Blessed Virgin that the Most Holy Trinity granted the overflowing of the Flame of Love. By it, ask in the prayer with which you greet My Most Holy Mother: “spread the effect of grace of Thy Flame of Love over all of humanity, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.” So that, by its action, humanity is converted. The Most Blessed Virgin added: “I do not want to change the prayer by which you honour me; by this petition, I want rather to shake humanity. This is not a new prayer formula; it must be a constant petition.” (Spiritual Diary, October 1962)
– By praying the prayer Christ taught Elizabeth, and He invited her to propagate it since He considers it to be a powerful means to blind Satan.
– When we take part in the Holy Sacrifice of Mass, if we are in a state of grace, the Evil one is blinded and the plenitude of the graces is transmitted to the soul for which we offer the Holy Mass. The Blessed Virgin: “If you attend a Holy Mass which is not an obligation for you, and if you are in a state of grace before God, I will spread the Flame of Love of my Heart and I will blind Satan during this time. My graces will run out abundantly on the souls for which you offer this Holy Mass. The participation in the Sacrifice of the Holy Mass increases to the highest degree the blindness of Satan.” (November 22, 1962)

– In the accomplishment of our duties, by offering to the Lord our daily work, if we are in a state of grace, this offering will increase the blindness of Satan. “Throughout the day also, offer your labour for the glory of God! This offering, made in a state of grace, also helps to blind Satan. Live in conformity with my graces so that the blindness of Satan extends more and more and grows increasingly larger. If you make good use of the abundant graces that I bestow upon you, they will make better a multitude of souls.” (November 30, 1962)
– “My little one, you must consider Thursdays and Fridays as two great days of special grace. These days, those who offer atonement to my divine Son will receive a great grace. During the hours of atonement, the ability of Satan weakens insofar as the atoning souls beg for the sinners…” (September 29, 1962). “On Thursdays and Fridays offer a special offering in atonement to my Holy Son. This should be done in the family starting with a spiritual reading followed by the Rosary or other prayers in intense fervor. Try to gather two or three members as you recall where two or more are gathered to pray, my Son is present among them.”
– “When someone does Adoration in a spirit of atonement or pays a visit to the Blessed Sacrament, as long as it lasts, Satan loses his power on the parish souls. Blinded, he ceases to reign on souls.” (November 6 – 7, 1962)

The Flame of Love and the Dying

The Blessed Virgin: “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 and the souls in Purgatory

The Lord 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.” (Agenda of Monday)
The Blessed Virgin added: “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.”
The Blessed Virgin 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)
“Your compassion for poor souls has moved my maternal Heart so much that I am granting you the grace you requested. 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 the grace from the Flame of Love of my maternal Heart.” (October 13, 1962)
The pain of the memory of our sins fertilizes also the souls (August 15, 1964). Even the desire of the salvation of souls contributes to blind Satan (November 30, 1962), because the will of the soul is already love (September 15, 1962).

“I need you all”

The Virgin Mary: “You must strive to participate in the blinding of Satan! I need you, individually as well as collectively. Any delay must be ruled out, for Satan will be blinded to the extent of your participation…
This is a grave responsibility. But your effort will not be in vain. If the whole world is united to Me, the soft light of My Flame of Love will then burn and set the globe aflame. Satan will be humiliated and made incapable of using his power any longer, provided this time of preparation is not indefinitely prolonged! No, do not prolong it! Do not procrastinate in response to My holy requests!”
“My daughter, I am providing you with so powerful a grace: the burning Flame of Love from My Heart, that has never before been offered as it is now. Ever since the Word became Flesh, I have not undertaken a greater movement than the Flame of Love from My Heart who rushes to you. Till now, nothing could blind Satan as much. And it is up to you not to reject it, for this rejection would simply spell disaster.”
The Lord Jesus: “Go beyond your limits! Think of the Three Wise Men who made a superhuman sacrifice. They surely exceeded their usual limits. Above all, the priests must do it, but the other consecrated persons as well and all the faithful…”
The Virgin Mary: “In the tribulation that is about to begin, I will remain with you. I am your Mother. I can and will help you. Soon, you will see My Flame of Love gushing forth everywhere, illuminating the heavens, the earth, and even darkened and slumbering souls. But what sorrow it is for Me to have to watch so many of My children throw themselves into Hell!”
The Virgin Mary: “My children, the arm of My Divine Son is ready to strike. I can barely hold it back. Help Me! If you invoke My Flame of Love, we can save the world together!
