Blinding The Strong Man

Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures


Memorial of Saint Francis de Sales

Blinding The Strong Man

“With this Flame full of graces that I give you from my heart, ignite all the hearts in the entire country. Let this Flame go from heart to heart. This is the miracle becoming the blaze whose dazzling light will blind Satan. This is the fire of love of union which I obtained from the heavenly Father through the merits of the wounds of my Divine Son.”  (Mary) (April 13, 1962 )

Today’s Readings: If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
And if a house is divided against itself,
that house will not be able to stand.
And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided,
he cannot stand;
that is the end of him.
But no one can enter a strong man’s house to plunder his property
unless he first ties up the strong man.
Then he can plunder his house. (Mark 3)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, who is the strong man? The strong man in this parable is the enemy of our souls who does not want to let go and give back any territory he may have conquered whether invited or uninvited. And who is stronger, the one who ties up the strong man- Lord that is You, the Name above all Names. At Your Name the strong man must leave. Yet Lord, sometimes we so easily forget who is the Stronger One in this spiritual battle we face every day of our lives. And today, there is so much sin that we can’t even see Your Grace which abounds all the more (Romans 5:20). Lord, through Your Precious Blood You have set us free, You the Flame of Love who blinds Satan! Lord help us to call Your Name today and may we pray the Unity Prayer to blind Satan and set our families free because You are the Divine Antidote to the “strong man” sickness in the world.

May our feet journey together. May our 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. Amen.
