Holy Mother Church celebrates Candlemas Day on Feb. 2nd when we remember and celebrated the LIGHT of Our Lord in our lives and that LIGHT is pouring forth to all of HUMANITY through the FLAME OF LOVE OF THE IMMACULATE HEART OF HIS MOTHER, MARY
On February 2nd we celebrate four momentous occasions!
+ The Feast Day of the Flame of Love. “I ask the Holy Father to make the feast of the Flame of Love on February 2, the feast of Candlemas. I do not want a special feast.” Full Diary pg. 61
+ Jesus’ very first entry into the Temple.
+ The Presentation of the Child Jesus in the Temple.
+ The Virgin Mary’s purification in the Temple.
Our Lady told Elizabeth that she wished February 2nd to be the feast day of the Flame of Love.
“On the feast of Candlemas, my beloved sons will introduce the Flame of Love of my heart in procession, so that, in such fashion, it becomes a living fire in the hearts, in the souls. Everything must be prepared in such a way that it spreads like wildfire.”Blessed Mother to Elizabeth Kindelmann
When we honor and celebrate the LIGHT of Our Lord in our lives, that LIGHT will pour forth even brighter, with more power, to all of HUMANITY through the FLAME OF LOVE OF THE IMMACULATE HEART OF HIS MOTHER, MARY.
