Flame of Love

Mission Statement

The mission of this movement is to evangelize, with the flame of love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. We do this by living and spreading her message, so that the love of the Eternal Father and of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, set all hearts on fire.  “Spread the effect of grace of thy Flame of Love over all humanity” (Jesus  to Elizabeth Kindelmann).

Would you like to join us in prayer on Thursday nights at 6:30pm? Contact Roxanne at (302) 242-6484 or email roxsmb@gmail.com for details. We would like to share this lovely devotion to Our Lady, called the Flame of Love Rosary.   We will guide you all the way. Join us with an open heart.   Join us in praying this devotion that was taught to Elizabeth Kindelmann.

What is the Flame of Love? 
The Flame of Love is Jesus Himself.  The urgency of this devotion is to pass on the Flame of Love to devout souls.   As this happens, Satan will be blinded and souls will find themselves able to respond to God’s actual graces.  An addition to the Hail Mary is as follows… “Spread the effect of Grace of the Flame of Love over all humanity.”

Where did this devotion come from?
This all started during a time when Hungary had been facing persecution for many years.  Elizabeth Kindelmann received messages from Jesus and Mary between 1961 and 1982.  Together, they taught her the Flame of Love devotion. This devotion is church approved.

Our Lady once said, “If you knew the importance of the Rosary, you would never put it down!”
Our Lady gave us the Flame of Love Rosary to blind Satan and save souls.  This devotion emanates from Mary’s heart. The flame is Jesus…Jesus is love, wanting to leap out into our hearts.

This is a request of the Blessed Virgin: “To the prayer by which you honor Me, the Ave Maria, add the following petition: 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 Mary, 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.”

Our Lady says, “With this flame you will light all hearts in the world.  The miracle will be this.  This flame will become a fire, and with its shining light, this fire will blind Satan”.

May our feet journey together.
May out hands gather in unity.
May our hearts beat in unison.
May our souls be in harmony.
May our thoughts be as one.
May our ears listen to the silence together.
May our glances profoundly penetrate each other.
May our lips pray together
to gain Mercy from the Eternal Father.

On June 19, 2013 the Vatican conveys, “His Holiness, Pope Francis, invoking the protection of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, is pleased to impart his Apostolic Blessing, which he extends to the Movement of “The Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.”

During 2014 and 2015, the Flame of Love Movement was strong only in Philadelphia. 2016 saw a dramatic change as word spread across this nation.  Our Lady is moving quickly, raising up people for their own dioceses.

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.  From Jesus to Elizabeth, “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 yourself 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.” This is just one of many messages given to Elizabeth Kindelmann.

“Hail Mary, full of grace…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.”  Our Lady wants us to act now!  Satan does not look on with his arms folded, he is making enormous efforts.  He already feels that the Flame of Love is lighting.  Please join us while we pray the Flame of Love rosary on Thursday evenings at 7pm.
