If God is real, it is the most important fact of our life

“If God is real, it is the most important fact of our life.” “Attention to God is the primary religious act. He is here, now, in this room, calling you, demanding your complete surrender in order that you may become complete. Nothing matters but that demand and your soul’s response.”
“If God is real, it is the most important fact of our life.”
“Attention to God is the primary religious act. He is here, now, in this room, calling you, demanding your complete surrender in order that you may become complete. Nothing matters but that demand and your soul’s response.”
“The soul that puts no limit on its correspondence with Him, through the power and love it develops in His service, becomes transfigured. From narrow, hard intensity to gentle, irradiating generosity.”
The words above were written by British spiritual genius Evelyn Underhill, born 140 years ago this December. The annual lecture in her honor this Saturday at Boston College (Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury, will present) is one of many annual events centered on her extraordinary and even trailblazing career. She was a married laywoman, scholar, author of “Mysticism” (1911) and “Worship” (1936). She was the first woman ever invited to lecture in theology at Oxford and one of the rare laywoman retreat leaders of her day.
“The Ways of the Spirit” (1994), is a posthumous compilation of four retreats. It follows her handwritten texts of talks to retreatants. And it was my purely accidental introduction to her work back when mega-bookstores still stocked dozens of titles on their religion shelves.
For me, “The Ways of the Spirit” was transformational.
Evelyn Underhill, a member of the Church of England, had long hoped to convert to Catholicism. But her husband objected. Nonetheless, she re-introduced both Protestants and Catholics to some lesser known medieval and more modern Catholic mystics, defining a mystic as someone who has had, to a greater or lesser degree, a direct intuition or experience of God and whose life is centered not only on certain beliefs but also on that first hand knowledge of the divine.
Perhaps her greatest contribution was arguing that regular men and women, laypeople like her, could have mystical experiences too. Not just the cloistered or the professionally holy. Not just the great saints of the Church - St. Augustine or St. Catherine of Siena. Not just the great biblical mystics - St. Paul and Jeremiah.
Underhill believed that mystical experiences are neither bizarre nor occult, but accessible to anyone through perseverant prayer, devotion, and service. They don’t happen because God loves “mystics” more, she said, but because mystics “loved and attended to Him more.” And the rest of us can too, “moving our little souls to Him,” she said, in “response to God’s immense attraction.”
An example of just such a regular world, if little known, mystic was Lucie Christine (1844-1908), whom Underhill wrote much about.
Lucie Christine was the pseudonym of an upper middle class Frenchwoman, Mathilde Boutle. She married at 21, reared five children, was deeply involved in domestic life yet suffered verbal and physical abuse at the hands of an alcoholic husband.
Though slight by comparison, her own personality flaws were evident: she was easily irritated, more easily insulted, and an obsessive worrier. She did not, clearly, appear saint-like. Yet she had secret experiences of God over decades, revealed only to her parish priest and detailed in her spiritual journal, published in 1912.
It explained that at age 30, Lucie Christine read Thomas a Kempis’ “Imitation of Christ,‘’ saw the words “God Alone,” and experienced an epiphany: “A light which showed me how I could belong completely to God alone in the world, an attraction by which my heart was subdued and delighted, a power which inspired me…its invisible and irresistible charm” pressing her “to perform every little daily act with love.”
Lucie Christine said her mysticism was “very simple. My soul lives in God, by a glance of love between him and myself. By this glance God gives himself to me and I give myself to Him. This is my habitual state,” she said. “I am absorbed by Him…I am transported into another life, a region that is more than this earth…it is rapture and inebriation.”
As years passed - and she lost her husband, her youngest child and her eyesight - friends saw in Lucie Christine a dramatic change, what Underhill calls “a growing beauty of soul, a strange peace-giving power, a silent influence which more than once brought unbelievers to God.”
Lucie Christine wrote that she had sought ways “to make God more loved by other souls, how to make apparent to them the gentleness, sweetness, that unspeakable peace” that she by her later years enjoyed almost continually. “Yet I have not found any other way more powerful than kindness.”
Underhill, as her writing and then radio broadcasts gained ever more attention, sometimes substituted the words “saints” and “spirituality” for “mystics” and “mysticism.” Some critics and skeptics found the latter words threatening, preposterous, presumptuous, blasphemous - or all four.
But it’s clear what Underhill meant: that one need not be saintly, or even close, to experience the mystical. That one can be living in the real world, working, cooking, bill paying, caring for spouses and children and kitchens and lawns and still - like Lucie Christine or Underhill herself - enter “the life of communion,” see “the transcendent permeating the ordinary,” as Underhill wrote.
Anyone can learn to “be silent before God,” she said, “to look at Him, and let Him look at you.”

The Necessity for Interior Purification

for post on interior purificationPresence of God – Purify my soul, O Lord, so that it may be filled completely with Your light and Your love.


St. John of the Cross compares the soul to a glass window with a ray of sunlight shining on it. If the glass is dirty, “the ray cannot illuminate it, nor transform it completely into its light; its illumination will be in proportion to its clearness. If, on the other hand, it is absolutely clean and spotless, it will be illuminated and transformed in such a way as to appear to be the luminous ray itself, and to give the same light” (Ascent of Mount Carmel II, 5,6). God is the divine Sun shining upon our souls, desiring to invade them and penetrate them, completely transforming them into His light and love. Before He does this, however, He waits until the soul resolves to free itself from every “creature stain,” that is, the stains of sin and inordinate attachments. As soon as God finds that a soul is free from mortal sin, He immediately fills it with His grace. This precious gift is the first step in the great transformation which the Lord desires to bring about in us. The more we become purified of all sin and imperfection, and of even the slightest attachment; that is, in proportion as we conform our will to the will of God, not only in serious matters of obligation but even in the least details of perfection, the more capable we become of being entirely penetrated and transformed by divine Grace.
Grace, the gift of God which makes the soul a participant in the divine nature, is poured forth into the soul in proportion to its degree of interior purity, which always corresponds to its degree of conformity with God’s will. Therefore, the soul that wishes to be totally possessed and transformed by divine Grace, must in practice strive to conform fully to the will of God, according to the teaching of St. John of the Cross, “so that there may be nothing in the soul that is contrary to the will of God, but that in all and through all its movement may be that of the will of God alone” (Ascent of Mount Carmel I, 11,2).


O my God, for what great things have You created me! You have created me to know You, to love You, to serve You—and not as a slave, but as Your child, Your friend, living in intimacy with You, sitting at Your table, enjoying Your presence. O Jesus, You have said, “I will not now call you servants, for the servant knoweth not what his lord doth. But I have called you friends because all things whatsoever I have heard of My Father, I have made known to you” (John 15:15)
You have revealed to me the great mystery of a God who deigns to love me as His child, to establish His dwelling in my soul, to invite me to a more intimate friendship and union with Him. You Yourself asked for this union for me at the Last Supper: “As Thou, Father, in Me and I in Thee, that they also may be one in Us” (John 17:21). To be one with God, to be consumed in the Unity of the Most Holy Trinity! O Jesus, how sublime is the ideal You propose to me, how wonderful the invitation you offer me! Yes, Your words apply also to me, a creature of sin and misery. Why should I delay, remaining among the base things and vanities of this earthly life? Why should I, like a reptile, be content to crawl on the ground, when You invite me to soar like an eagle and give me wings with which to do so? Alone I can do nothing and would struggle in vain to free myself from the bonds of sin, to detach myself from creatures and from myself; all my efforts would be useless because my natural weakness constantly tends to drag me down. But Your grace and love are the wings on which I can fly to perfect union with You. With such an ideal, how could I think it hard to undertake and carry out a work of profound purification and total detachment?
O God, make me understand clearly that “real love consists in detaching oneself from everything that is not You” (John of the Cross, Ascent of Mount Carmel II, 5,7). From everything, not only from this thing or that, but from everything, for love is by nature totalitarian, and perfect union demands perfect harmony of wills, desires, and affections.

My God, what profound purification I must undergo in order that You may be able to unite me to Yourself, who art infinite perfection!

Lady Gaga Sang It False

Last Sunday, while many of us watched a very professional and exciting football game, we and our families were subjected to a halftime show by Lady Gaga. I thought that the costumes, images, noise, smoke and light were a commentary on our Culture of Death with its anti-life, truth, goodness and beauty.

Most offensive where the lyrics to her song, “Born This Way”, in which she falsely sang, “No matter gay, straight, or bi, Lesbian, transgendered life, I’m on the right track baby, I was born to survive.”

The truth is that no one is born, as Lady Gaga sang, into a “gay, or bi, lesbian, transgendered life.” Persons with these disordered sexual attractions are not born that way. Although our Culture of Death says that our subjective feelings are what define our sexuality, the truth of our sexuality is objectively revealed to us by God, through our bodies.

The idea that these disordered sexual attractions are innate and immutable is an article of faith, not science. You can’t prove immutability, there is no scientific observation, experimentation and conclusions, just polls and even most polls show that these disordered attractions can be changed and are curable. You only need one witness to disprove this unscientific theory. There are no such genes for these sexual attractions. None of these disorders are fixed and determined. They are all subject to free will. An adulterer might just as well argue that there is an “adulterer’s gene”, a drug addict an “addicts gene” and so forth. None of them can truthfully say, “I was born this way.”

Many activists agree that the “born this way” argument for their homosexuality and lesbianism has no basis in science.

You may learn more here:



God does not create people with these disordered attractions. He creates them as man and woman and their disordered attractions come through their environment, nurture, not nature, and their own free will that is subject to satanic deception and temptation.

Perhaps those with disordered sexual attractions did not freely choose their disorder. Perhaps their life’s wounds led them to this. However, God knows and he looks to their hearts and wants to save them and to lead them in the right direction to receive his merciful love.

Those with disordered sexual attractions can, with the grace of God, choose and live their true sexuality free of the temptations of disordered sexual attractions. God does not propose the impossible. He gives us the grace and makes possible what may seem impossible. He created us in love to know him and to love him and to serve them in this world, and to be eternally happy with him in heaven. He wants us to choose his plan.

God’s plan for human sexuality is that a man and woman will come together as one flesh in an indissoluble monogamous marriage - unbreakable and for life. His plan is that the sexual acts that he designed for our bodies are exclusively only for married men and women uniting them in love with an openness to new life and their family.

Special concern and pastoral attention should be directed toward those who have suffer from these disordered attractions, lest they be led to believe that the living out of them in sexual activity is a morally acceptable option. It is not.

“The Lord Jesus promised, "You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free" (Jn. 8:32). Scripture bids us speak the truth in love (cf. Eph. 4:15). The God who is at once truth and love calls the Church to minister to every man, woman and child with the pastoral solicitude of our compassionate Lord.”

Read the letter to the Catholic bishops here.

Our Lady of America said, “I am the Immaculate One, Patroness of your land. Be my faithful children as I have been your faithful Mother.” She asked us to be pure, especially the young. We should pray for her intercession to protect and bring to conversion, purity and chastity those who practice disordered sexual acts.

Our Lady of America asked for America to lead the world in purity. If it failed in this mission, as it certainly has, she gave us a severe warning in April of 1957.

Our Lady said, “Unless my children reform their lives, they will suffer great persecution. If man himself will not take upon himself the penance necessary to atone for his sins and those of others, God in His justice will have to send upon him the punishment necessary to atone for his transgressions.”

God’s Mysterious Absence in Deep Prayer

Contemplation does not shield us from doubt or suffering. Christian prayer baptizes our doubts and difficulties, trials and tests in faith. Violently opposing forces, faith confronts doubt in prayer even in the midst of very difficult circumstances. Saint Thérèse of Lisieux lived a life of intense prayer and friendship with the Lord. In the last weeks of her short life, after suffering for more than a year from tuberculosis, she was ordered to finish her autobiography. It was during this suffering that she began to understand that there were people who had lost their faith. This insight moved her with deep compassion:
“Although I would not have believed it before, Jesus has given me a sense that there really are souls without faith. Through an abuse of grace, they have lost the true joy that comes from this priceless treasure.”
Fire From Above CoverUntil these final months of her life, she was completely mystified by believers who once had this gift but had lost it. She simply presumed everyone knew the joy that she found in her faith. Why would they not do everything possible to try to get it back? Now in her terminal illness, God helps her question this presumption.
By doing so, He is implicating her in His work of mercy. Mercy suffers the misery of others to relieve their pain and restore their sense of dignity. To this end, the Lord communicates a difficult and unfamiliar message:
“He allowed a thick darkness to invade my spirit. The very thought of heaven, previously a consolation, became the source of struggle and torment.”
The Lord wants her to understand what those who do not know Him suffer. This means that He allows her to suffer the absence of the joy of our faith. Thus the consolation of certain doctrines, such as the doctrine of heaven, is no longer something that she experiences in prayer. The Lord continued to communicate to her by this absence of joy to her last life’s breath:
“This trial was to last more than a few days or a few weeks. It would continue until the hour set by God Himself. This hour has not yet come.”
God permits the absence of joy only for an important reason. He does not withhold a blessing unless to give us a greater blessing. In order to understand the absence of joy that Saint Thérèse suffered, it is helpful to consider the greater blessing that the Lord was giving her.
She writes about a spiritual joy she finds in the midst of her suffering. The suffering she writes about is not merely a physical experience, but above all a spiritual trial. From her experience, we can understand that spiritual joy is not due to the absence of spiritual suffering. Instead, this joy from above is found in the midst of a suffering her spirit endures here below.
It is important to note that in the Christian life of prayer, spiritual maturity does not consist in an absence of suffering. In this life, the more we love, the more we suffer — physically, psychologically, and above all spiritually. Real love is not limited by the merely convenient. It costs. For the one who loves, however, whatever the sacrifice, it is always too little.
When love costs nothing, it does not mean very much. Without suffering, love risks being no more than a sentimental thought or a good intention. What it costs helps us see what the love actually means. Suffering patiently all kinds of difficulties for the Lord and for others proves our love and makes it real.
The reason this darkness was a particular trial for Saint Thérèse was that in the past, when suffering difficult times, she was able to sustain herself by entering into deep prayer and resting in the thought of heaven. Now the thought of heaven was almost impossible to bear.
It was not that she did not believe in heaven. She held it as a matter of faith. But her own personal relationship with what she believed left her in torment. She simply could not believe that she could be happy in the heaven that she professed. Whatever light this belief offered was withheld from her. Just what beatitude really was, as opposed to what she imagined it to be, seems to have deeply troubled her spirit.
To live by faith means to be faithful to God even when our feelings, our thoughts, and our imagination cannot find Him. This trial of spiritual darkness is so overbearing that we can feel tempted to doubt, to forsake our life of faith. Yet suffering this darkness that causes people to doubt is not the same as doubting. Instead, if we choose to believe in the merciful love of God anyway, we make of even this suffering a powerful sacrifice of praise.
What is the difference between doubt and suffering the lack of joy doubt causes? Faith. When we believe in the love of God even when we do not feel it, we are exercising our faith. When we lift our hearts in prayer even when God does not seem to be there, our prayer is all the more precious to Him. He sees the sacrifice, and He understands the cost.
Jesus Himself did not brush over our human experience during His Passion and death. He fully entered into it — enjoying and suffering to the last drop everything about our life in this world, except sin itself. Although He never doubted, He did share with us the sometimes dehumanizing anguish that doubt can engender in those who love or want to love God.
Jesus prayed Psalm 22 as he struggled to breathe on the Cross. This is a prayer of a man tormented by his enemies, rejected by society, tortured, and left to die in humiliation. Although it ultimately becomes a prayer of confidence in God, the psalm begins with a crucified man’s agonizing question to God: “Why have you abandoned me?”
By saving us in this way, even to the point of bearing the suffering of doubt, Jesus opens all of human experience, including doubt, to the mercy of God. If doubts oppress us and make prayer difficult, we do not suffer this alone. The Lord has entered this experience too.
Darkness is an ordeal but not a sin. Doubt, on the other hand, is a choice. Ordeals are given us to help us grow and to make our love for God and one another more meaningful, more beautiful. When, in the face of difficult darkness, we renounce doubt and choose to believe in God’s love, our faith becomes strong and so does our ability to pray.
Christians can suffer the darkness of doubt even if they do not choose to doubt but instead choose to believe. The extent to which Christ has already suffered this same darkness is revealed on the Cross. He has descended into our darkest experiences so that we would not suffer alone, so that in looking at Him, we might recover our dignity. If we also confront this darkness, we do not do so alone. He is with us. By faith, even this darkness of doubt can become a way to share in Christ’s salvific mission.
This means that if anyone is struggling with such darkness in his life, it is still possible to believe even in the face of such overbearing difficulty. It is simply a matter of crying out with faith in prayer. It is a matter of asking and begging God for the strength to persevere in love in the midst of this trial. When we choose to believe in spite of such darkness, when we raise our hearts in prayer even when it feels as if there is no reason to do so, this is when we are in special solidarity with the Lord.

On Eagles Wings

Luke 18: 26-27 "... Who then can be saved? ... What is impossible for man is possible for God. "

Several months ago I was taken, as if in a daydream, on a journey with Jesus across the boundaries of the world. I was riding on the wing of an eagle. The eagle was directing the healing of the world by the power of the Holy Spirit.  He showed this by using a spinning sphere to recreate the human life experience. He explained that we raise our children in an unbalanced world. Most importantly having left God out. He said that the greatest deterrent to His work is legalism and fundamentalism.

I have pondered and wondered how will this happen? Almost everything is wrong with the world. The list of issues is too long to write.  I complain to Jesus at times that for most people the issue of Purity is absurd. The idea of married people Espousing a life of Purity is next to impossible.  I know that isn't true.

It helped me greatly yesterday when praying with a friend to have Jesus tell us that one healing will over lap another and  cause peace in many other areas of life. The greatest problem is locking God out of our lives. Listening to our President unabashedly speak of his and our need for God lifted my spirit about the entire situation our world is in. If we open our hearts to God's holy and Divine Will and pray for wisdom, we are well on our way to allowing God to do what is impossible for us. He will heal, purify and bring us to Himself.  A great, kind and loving God.

Are there big problems in and around God's world?  Yes. Are we a stubborn and stiff necked people? Yes. For sure God will turn us around as gently as possible. Surrender and accept the grace being poured for us. God will take care of us,  offer everything up in union with His Perfect Passion;  discomfort,  fear and suffering, offer it all back to God in reparation for all He suffered for us and for the good of souls everywhere.

God is LOVE,

Flame of Love ... Grace & Hope

This post from Janet is excellent and so necessary.  I suggest reading the entire message including the Flame of Love. I feel the same message within me as I muse on the goings-on in the world today. The grace is given in abundance for all as God heals and transforms the world.  I am passing out prayers to Our Lady of America for the indwelling of the Holy Trinity. We will need this strength to continue on in fearless abandon to the Divine Will of God. I will post the prayer for the Indwelling of the Holy Trinity on the bottom.
In His Mother's care and love,
~Margaret of souls for Jesus

Flame of Love…by Janet Klasson

Acts 1:6-8 So when they had come together, (the disciples) asked him, ‘Lord, is this the time when you will restore the kingdom to Israel?’ He replied, ‘It is not for you to know the times or periods that the Father has set by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.’
It is important to read the signs of the times, to watch and pray. Something is definitely afoot in our day. Anyone who follows the Church-approved apparitions of Our Lady beginning with those to Catherine Labouré in 1830 through to the present day, will comprehend that Our Lady is the new John the Baptist calling us all to repentance. She is warning us of the consequences of our sins and exhorting us to do penance for the salvation of souls. And we must not forget what Jesus told St. Faustina: we are living in the days of mercy that precede the Day of Judgment.

Yes, something is unquestionably afoot in the spiritual realm. Heaven is visiting earth in unprecedented ways. That Our Lady is soiling her feet to visit the earth once again is a very great sacrifice of love on her part, and a very great mercy for us. She continues to offer us ways to mitigate the dire consequences that sin has purchased for the world, ways which mostly have to do with atonement to the much-wounded Heart of Jesus. In the words of the angel at Fatima: “Penance! Penance! Penance!” Is it any wonder that God has resurrected the Rule of 1221 in our time?
A couple of years ago I had an enlightening experience. I had asked our Mother for a certain favor. Then, at morning Mass I asked what she would like in return. Immediately I felt these words in my heart: “Spread devotion to my Immaculate Heart to the whole world,” and then, “Elizabeth Kindelmann”.
I had heard of Elizabeth Kindelmann before, but now I felt compelled to find out all I could. Elizabeth was a Hungarian mother of six who received locutions from Jesus and Mary from 1961-1982. She died in 1985. Before her death she recorded her Spiritual Diary which received the Imprimatur of Cardinal Peter Erdö in 2009, authorizing the publication of the messages. Through Elizabeth Kindelmann, the Virgin Mary placed into our hands a new means to BLIND Satan: the Flame of Love of Her Immaculate Heart. The following are a few of Our Lady’s messages to Elizabeth as recorded in her Diary:
“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 method for blinding Satan is quite simple. Any time we pray the Rosary, we are to add a special supplication to each Hail Mary as follows:
“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.”
Elizabeth once asked Jesus and Mary exactly what the “Flame of Love” is. Jesus responded: “My Mother’s Flame of Love is for you what the Noah’s Ark was for Noah.” And the Blessed Virgin Mary added: “The Flame of Love of My Immaculate Heart is Jesus Christ Himself!”
The importance of this devotion in our day cannot be overestimated. Our Lady spoke of a coming tribulation (which undoubtedly has now begun) and an illumination:
“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 Flame of Love is a critical message to our times. It is the fulfillment of the promise of Our Lady of Fatima: “In the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph!” Her Immaculate Heart is the Flame of Love, not directly preparing us for the final coming of Christ, but for an intermediate Era of Peace brought about by a worldwide conversion following an Illumination of Conscience, a new springtime in the Church, a “Sabbath rest”, when Satan and his minions will be chained once again until the pre-ordained time.
Here are some further excerpts from Elizabeth’s Diary:
“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.’

“(Mary) permitted me to feel in a wonderful way the effects of grace of her Flame of Love which, at that moment, were felt not just by me, but by all the souls in the country. Then she began to speak.
“Mary: ‘Now, Satan has been blinded for some hours and has ceased dominating souls. Lust is the sin making so many victims. Because Satan is now powerless and blind, the evil spirits are set and inert, as if they have fallen into lethargy. They do not understand what is happening. Satan has stopped giving them orders. Consequently, souls are freed from the domination of the Evil One and are making sound resolutions. Once those millions of souls emerge from this event, they will be much stronger in their resolve to stay firm.’”
Powerful, powerful words! Scripture tells us, “Where sin abounds, grace abounds all the more.” (Rom 5:20) I invite and urge everyone reading this to spread this devotion to those around them–it is meant to be spread “heart to heart”.
In 2009, the Diary received an imprimatur from Cardinal Dr. Peter Erdo. In addition to Flame of Love teachings, the messages stress importance of the Mass, of fasting, and of offering our daily works in this mission of the Flame of Love. More information may be found at www.flameoflove.us/ or the Canadian site: http://www.theflameoflove.org/. Both sites make copies of the diary available, but for the full Diary, the US site has the much better price. However, the Canadian site has an inexpensive 96 page booklet available consisting of key excerpts from the Diary, great for handing out. The Diary is also available in Kindle version on Amazon.
Two startling confirmations occurred for me in relation to this devotion. At the same time I was posting to my blog my new calling to promote this devotion, Mark Mallett was also posting a similar message. In addition, on the same day, the updated full-length English translation of Elizabeth Kindelmann’s Spiritual Diary was released on the Canadian site.
Since beginning my research into these messages, I have since put my own prayer request to Mary in last place. I no longer care whether or not she grants it; I intend to spread this message to all those I can reach and commend all my earthly needs to the Flame of Love. The Flame of Love is one of the great hopes in a world steeped in sin. It is the method our Lord has chosen to crush the enemy under the heel of the Woman. Let us join her army and take up our stations. “For God and for Mary!”
Mother of God, spread the effect of grace of Thy Flame of Love over all of humanity, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
