Dear Flame of Love Prayer Warriors,
Rejoice in sharing the Word of God that took flesh in our Blessed Mother and her message to Elizabeth Kindelmann so that, together, we can stir into flame the love, mercy, peace, and joy of our Lord and Savior. For his Sacred Heart inflames our hearts to blind the devil and witness to all people our divine destiny.
As I celebrate Christmas Mass, join me in praising our loving Father for blessing us with our Infant Savior, who empowers us with His Holy Spirit to be His precious children. God’s Powerful Spirit (GPS) graces and guides us to praise God and thank all who passionately communicate His love and mercy. A grateful heart is a generous heart that restores God’s presence, power, and peace in hearts searching to love and be loved. We come from God, and we are destined to return to God. Pray this Eucharistic Prayer asking Jesus that someday we can rejoice with the choirs of angels as saints.
We give You praise, Father Most Holy, for You are great and have fashioned all your works in wisdom and love. You formed man in your own image and entrusted the whole world to his care so that in serving You alone, the Creator, He might have dominion over all creatures. And when He had lost your friendship through disobedience, You did not abandon Him to the domain of death. For you came in mercy to the aid of all, so that those who seek might find You. Repeatedly, You offered them covenants and, through the prophets, taught them to look forward to salvation.
And You so loved the world, Father Most Holy, that in the fullness of time
You sent your Only Begotten Son to be Our Savior. Made incarnate by the
Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, He shared our human nature in
all things but sin. To the poor, He proclaimed the good news of salvation;
to prisoners, freedom; and to the sorrowful of heart, joy.
To accomplish your plan, He gave himself up to death, and, rising from the dead, He destroyed death and restored life. And that we might live no longer for ourselves but for Him who died and rose again for us, He sent the Holy Spirit from you, Father, as the first fruits for those who
believe, so that, bringing to perfection his work in the world, he might sanctify creation in all fullness.
JESUS LOVES YOU, AND SO DO I,
Monsignor Ralph J. Chieffo
