Elements of the Flame of Love Devotion - Getting Started

Elements of the Flame of Love Devotion - Blinding Satan

September 12, 2019

Blinding Satan by the great outpouring of grace for the salvation of souls is the purpose for the Flame of Love devotion.  This cenacle presentation discusses what that means.


Elements of the Flame of Love Devotion - The Unity Prayer

September 12, 2019

This cenacle presentation explores the way Jesus expounds and explains the Unity Prayer throughout the Spiritual Diary.  We see that it is not at all a pleasant prayer of "you and me, Jesus," but rather a call to profound sacrifice in union with Him for the salvation of souls.

This cenacle presentation introduces Jesus request to remove taste from our meals as a tangible expression of love for the salvation of souls.


Elements of the Flame of Love Devotion - Mass and Adoration

September 26, 2019

This cenacle presentation focuses on the role of Mass and Adoration in devotion to the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, their power over Satan, their power to bring about grace and divinity, and their ability to give joy to our Beloved.  We also examine the great promises associated with Mass to those devoted to the Flame of Love.


Elements of the Flame of Love Devotion - Continual Repentance

September 26, 2019

This cenacle presentation focuses on the need for continual repentance as part of devotion to the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  We explore the danger of "good person" syndrome and Jesus' rebuke of "pious" souls.  We discuss the need to "up our game" against the great attack by Satan and why we sometimes hold back.  We see how Jesus and Mary are concentrating the channels of grace in this devotion in order to produce great Saints not because we are great but because the need is great.  We note that we are to repent of our own sins, repent in order to bring others to repentance, and repent for others.  We examine how repentance brings grace and how repentance brings joy.  We finally touch upon the Sacrament of Reconciliation.


Elements of the Flame of Love Devotion - Night Vigils

September 26, 2019

In this cenacle presentation, we introduce the night vigils Jesus requested as part of devotion to the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  We see Mary's extraordinary promise that our night vigils would save the dying from eternal damnation.  We also see how difficult this was even for Elizabeth Kindelmann.  We learn of how Jesus said He seeks souls in the quiet of the night and how those long stretches of prayer without interruption build our love for Him and bring about grace.  We look at the early Church to see how this is nothing new and explore how to be practical about such a demanding request.


Elements of the Flame of Love Devotion - Complete Dedication to the Salvation of Souls

October 10, 2019

In this cenacle presentation we discuss a spiritually challenging element of the Flame of Love devotion, viz,. the complete dedication of our lives to the salvation of souls.  We spend some time exploring how to practically approach this topic and see how Jesus is offering us an opportunity to love.  We see how this devotion calls all of us to live the life of the consecrated in the intensity of our commitment.  We quote extensively from the Spiritual Diary to see how Jesus insists that this great grace only comes through complete renunciation of ourselves and how this dedication is the needed response to the grave danger we are in today.  We see how this is the key to the sainthood to which Jesus calls us in the Flame of Love and how He insists this is attainable even in the context of family — indeed for all and especially the sick.  We read many examples of Jesus insisting that the salvation of souls must be our only purpose in life and then view several practical illustrations of Jesus' request in the life of Elizabeth Kindelmann.
