My FOL Testimony
It is My Devotion to Jesus and Mary that healed my family spiritually. Now we have a better outlook in life. Life was so dark and chaotic, full of hatred and anger before. We learned to forgive those who cause us deep pain in our hearts. We thought life will still be the same. But God is loving and merciful. He arranged everything in order in our family in HIS own perfect time. And HIS time is INDEED PERFECT. The hatred, anger, chaos now turn to peace, light and love for each other. For me this is an amazing miracle that happened in my life or our life even until today.
People surrounding us, close friends, relatives are the living witnesses of His great miracles in our family. Even I, personally, He had changed me to become a better person. He changed my hardened heart too. He had changed me and continued doing it so … Because I am asking it everyday to purify my hearts and lead me to the road of Holiness. My struggle is really really real. The more I try to become prayerful, the more I feel how sinner I am. It is my faith that I hold on. I never give up. What I am now and what you are now is a MIRACLE. So everyday is a Miracle. I am very thankful that I am into this Flame of Love Devotion. It helps me sustain my everyday life because I ask Jesus and Mary to blind the enemy. And it is really working and effective. Just have faith. Faith is believing the UNSEEN. Now I have all the guts to do what He wanted me to do and accomplish. This is my weapon now, my devotion to the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary who is Jesus Christ Himself.

My Testimony on Flame of Love Miracle
Each one of us have faced a lot of trials and challenges in our earthly life. For me, I have been tested a lot of times from marital, emotional, work/job related & physical trials. All these I had to bear and won over because I have been so dependent on my love to the Twin Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
Read More Ever since my good friend here in Cebu introduced to me the Devotion of the Flame of Love I was amazed at the story imparted to me and due to my love and devotion to the twin hearts of Jesus and Mary I started to pray the Flame of Love Rosary. Never would I know that someday a miracle will be manifested in my life as I constantly pray the rosary.
Last July 11, 2019 at 5am I had a very high fever and was delirium. At 6am my mother went to my room and she saw me looking so red due to high fever. My mother brought me to the bathroom and pour cold water on me to make my temperature subside. As soon as we went inside my room thereafter, I had chest pains and requested to be brought to the hospital. In North Gen Hospital I was diagnosed again with Pneumonia which lead to Sepsis, a complication in my blood which when untreated properly may lead to my death. Oxygen was placed on my nostrils to help me breathe. At 11am the nurse in charge of me took my vital signs. I still had high grade fever and she found out that my blood pressure was very low at 80/60 and she alarmed the doctors. I was advised to be transferred to the ICU but there was no available one that I could use so The nurses and doctors took turns every 2 hours on monitoring my vital signs but still my blood pressure was low so they put me on cardiac monitor and other machines were attached to my body and they administered norepinephrine, a medicine injected into my IV to help my blood pressure and in a few minutes they took my blood pressure again which was so high & risking me for a possible heart attack. Repeated blood pressure monitoring ensued but still it was unstable and to make matters worse I still had high grade fever and was not able to urinate at all so a urine catheter was inserted on me so I can urinate. My doctor who was my cousin requested to talk to my parents and she advised them to prepare themselves because it might be my last moments with them due to my present dangerous state of health. I had no idea what was happening to me. I felt so weak and just wanted to go to sleep as I can hardly open my eyes. My youngest sister Zeny who was in Florida, USA was monitoring me too thru the internet and was already suggesting that a central line would be opened on me as my veins collapsed and the doctors had a hard time inserting some more IV. Both my forearms were bruised and blue due to failed IV insertion. I was basically like a comatose patient that does not move but keeps on sleeping. All of these statement stated above are based on what my younger sister Remme Ann recalled to me what happened as I was always sleeping then. I can remember though Remme Ann’s voice waking me up and saying I need to wake up and was not allowed to go to sleep and she suggested that we pray the rosary so I obliged and asked her that we pray the FLAME OF LOVE ROSARY. Since my sister was not yet familiar with the new way of praying the rosary so I instructed her to open my celphone and look for the FOL rosary guide downloaded in my celphone. I can still remember praying with her the rosary but she said I couldn’t finish praying the rosary as I will go back to sleep and she had to wake me up again so we could pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. My fever and unstable blood pressure persisted so my family decided to transfer me to Perpetual Succour Hospital for me to be confined in the ICU. My family never ceased to pray the rosary. My sisters in CFC Handmaids of the Lord visited me on that night and we also prayed again. I was praying with them but could not continue since I fell asleep again. My mother said that as we were praying my CFC handmaids of the Lord Sisters were in tears and fervently prayed for me. So on the next day Friday, as the doctors took my vital signs there was a little progress with my fever but still I was not out of danger so I was transferred to perpetual hospital but unfortunately there was no vacant ICU that I could use. I was on the 5th waiting list. My family prayed the FOL rosary with me and on the next day Saturday I was feeling better and was less sleepy and my doctor decided not to transfer me to the ICU. I was confined for a week at the hospital and I prayed the FOL rosary daily. Though I was able to be discharged from the hospital days after but yet I had to visit my doctor’s clinic weekly and had to undergo repeated blood work until I was totally healed. I know that what happened to me was a MIRACLE.
As I was obedient and religiously prayed the rosary, Mama Mary together with her son Jesus Christ manifested again their great love for me and healed me with my sickness. They never failed me whenever I seek for their help. With all the trials that I have overcome in my life like when I was diagnosed with TYPE 1 ENDOMETRIAL CANCER and had to undergo a dangerous Surgery thru TAHBSO (Total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo- oophorectomy) wherein my reproductive system was removed in order to stop the cancer cells from growing to other parts of the body; my devotion to Mama Mary and to her son Jesus Christ grew more stronger. The promise of love and ease during pain when one is loyal and diligent in the devotion of FOL was all true. I can testify to the overflowing love and grace bestowed upon me. If there will be other trials that I have to face in life I know it would be to make me a better person and would mould me in having a stronger devotion to the two hearts of Jesus and Mary. With them beside me & if I place my trust to them what could go wrong?
So, let’s all continue to devoutly pray the Flame of Love Devotion and reap the harvest that is promised to those who religiously pray for it. Let us also include in our prayers the Priest, Religious, and the souls in purgatory most especially the souls of the forgotten ones.
TO GOD, THE TWIN HEARTS OF JESUS AND MARY, BE THE GLORY. Thank you!

It has been observed that more souls of the departed were manifesting and making known their intentions and requests for prayers…the praying of the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Rosary. This is something that we all should be happy about.
Yesterday, i was informed that a soul, a foreigner had requested the same. He even wanted to have his wife be informed that he also wanted to have Catholic Masses offered for his soul for 2 years…. Another request came for a soul of certain Hubert, believed to be a brother or a priest. This is something truly great…

Let this devotion be our WAY OF LIFE.”
One devotee of the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary shared to me that before they prayed the Flame of Love Rosary, one day, she was inspired to offer the whole rosary for the souls in purgatory. She asked one companion about something.
“Tan-awa usa daw sa gawas bi ug sa kusina kung naa ba tanan aron makasugod na ta sa rosary…?”
The person opened the door and look around. And he said.
“Di na ko kaagi, Te. Daghan na kaayo sila…”
And he was referring to the souls, saints, and angels present in the house where they gather to pray. That person could see all of them. And he saw so many souls at the back of our friend devotee leading the rosary. This he shared after the prayer. Our friend also shared to me that certain soul, Tony Villanueva, communicated to her.
“Please continue to pray the Flame of Love Rosary kay hapit na ko makasulod sa Langit…”
Indeed his message was consistent to the message received by Elizabeth Kindelmann.
“If the Flame of Love Rosary is prayed for the souls of the departed, after 8 days, those souls shall be saved…”
I realize that things are getting clearer and clearer. Let us help our brothers and sisters get out from purgatory through the praying of the FLAME OF LOVE rosary, devoutly. Let us be strong and firm in this devotion. We must not waste time…. Saving souls is worth all the sacrifices.
May the merciful Lord, bless and preserve you, the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
These are all a blessings for all of us who has been called to pray and help the departed souls
This mission, this Cause… Is worth all the sacrifice….

“This works also in relationships,it happened in my family only last June when I decided to pray the FOL seriously allowing Jesus and Mama Mary to purify me inspite of pains and hardships of letting go of self-righteousness.. Some earthly things. Someone who is not for me and the memories which I thought that will help me grow in this journey. Aside of what happened to the soul of uncle Edgar which was really a miracle for me…Jesus and Mama Mary poured so much grace in our family last June this year, first the wedding of my sister last June 29..
Read More Next on July, my brother was requesting me to tell Fr. Ariel to bless his house and pump boats.Fr. Ariel told me to tell my brother and his wife to have confession before the blessing. I find it hard to tell them since we did have crisis in our relationship before which was not complete settled..but then I tried because of my fear nga basin something bad will happened to their business because of the presence of bad spirits in their place according to Fr. Ariel. Surprisingly they said yes and you know not only my sis in law and brother did the confession hasta akong parents and niece kay manguban man sila sa blessing kay layo man gud sa amoa ang place it will take 4 to 5 hrs. ang travel. My mother told me that her last confession was 29 yrs ago pa..my brother was on their wedding on 2002 pa.. – Sapphire Martin

Remme Ann from Talamban, Cebu City
I am Remme Ann and my husband and I would like to share with you the miracle that happened to my father in law, Gerardo Onez. He has been confined at Mendero Hospital for almost two weeks now, for chest pain. He was taking chemotherapy drugs for a cancerous cyst under his tongue. He is 75yrs old and physically weak after his first stroke two years before. The meds he took for two weeks shrunk the cyst but compromised his health. Due to severe lack of proper nourishment, he was rushed to Mendero for severe chest pain. His platelet count went down to 40 where the normal count was 150. He was transfused with 2 bags of B+ blood. He slowly recovered but had difficulty breathing. He was on oxygen support since day 1.
Every day was a struggle because he had chest pains round the clock even with IV meds. The doctor told us to transfer him to ICU but my husband family declined. We were worried that we could no longer stay with Papa in the ICU because visitors and visiting hours were limited. Last Thursday at 4am, my mother in law called us that Papa was not in good condition. We rushed to the hospital and stayed with him. Witnessed his struggle to breathe, restless and fearful. My husband held him, embraced him, changed his diapers, and did whatever his Papa requested to be done. We thought that was the last day we would see him alive. He was dying. His eyes were glassy, clouded, like a dying flame. He was like a goldfish taken out of the fish bowl, struggling to breathe. It was hard to look at him, Painful.
Our praying warrior friend arrived and prayed over him while we all prayed the FOL aloud. We could see my Father in law struggling like he was battling with whatever was troubling him. He was restless and kept asking my husband to embrace him.
When my praying warrior friend laid her hand over his heart while praying the FOL, he asked my husband to get a bag of ice. My husband looked at me. We knew he felt the Flame of Love over his heart. My husband said at that time Papa was hot, like he had fever.
When my praying warrior friend stood and prayed over him with the gift of tongue, he was still restless. Finally, she said “Release all your fears for Jesus, Mary and Joseph are praying and embracing you right now. Your guardian angel is watching over you.” I saw my father n law immediately release his pent up breath and went to sleep.
My sister Libie Ann came to the hospital and gave him her scapular and Benedictine medal. He is wearing it up to now. That night, we witnessed a miracle happen to my father in law. He didn’t die. He lived and is recuperating now.
Last Sunday 11/10/19, my father n law was able to breathe, once in a while, even without the oxygen. Nihayag na iya aura and he ate, spoke and even pushed his feet on the bed when I helped move him in the position he wanted. I watched him whole day yesterday. He was calm and peaceful. He slept and sometimes opened his eyes to stare ate the tv, or so I thought.
Apparently, he told my sis in law today that he saw a lot of strangers in his room yesterday, while I was there. Even a kid was there who just passed by and disappeared in the cabinet. These strangers looked at him looking at them, but never spoke. While I was praying the FOL, I sprinkled holy water on him, around his bed, all over the room. I sat beside him and touched his shoulder while I was praying. At one time, I watched him reach up with both hands, seemingly touching something and turning his fingers like he was turning a doorknob. His eyes was closed like he was dreaming. I was not afraid but I knew were not alone that’s why I opened the curtains to let the natural light in. It was around 3:30pm.
After awhile, he opened his eyes and said, ngano hayag man? The sunlight was faint behind above his head. So I closed the curtain and the room was in semi darkness. I wasn’t comfortable at that point because I was scared to see shadows move. So, I turned on the light near the cr. After I was done praying, I stood up and made coffee. I asked him if he wanted to drink milk and he said yes. I quickly turned on the light in the room and it was bright again. I was relieved because I felt we were not alone. I was cold all the time even when I turned the aircon to fan.
He told my sis law, “maayo untag naay muari nga akong side noh”
I was right that he wanted to see his younger sister and brother, the remaining siblings. Both are sick. The sister is paralyzed and the brother can’t walk due to severe arthritis.
I took this while reading the FOL book that you gave me.
I told Chris he has to make a way for papa and his younger sister to reconcile. They have an estranged relationship for a long time now. He texted her son but he didn’t reply. I know Papa wants to reconcile with his siblings.
Papa told Mama that he saw a woman in white wearing a veil.I believe si Mama Mary to.
I watched him today. And prayed the FOL followed by the Divine Mercy Chaplet. He slept the entire time. I blessed the room with holy water and touched his hand making the sign of the cross with my fingers dipped in holy water. He kept on sleeping peacefully. He said he travelled to places he wasn’t familiar of. Dr. Jay, his cardiologist, said hopefully he can go home on Friday.
