Clean Robes

Seventh Sunday of Easter


Clean Robes


In Baptism, My heavenly Father gave all of you the most beautiful robe of sanctifying grace. In spite of this, you do not take care of it. Is there any father who has suffered more than I, so that this robe of sanctifying grace can regain its whiteness? (Jesus) (May 1962)


Today’s Readings: Blessed are they who wash their robes so as to have the right to the tree of life and enter the city through its gates. (Revelations 22)


Prayer Meditation- Lord, You have given us everything through Your Passion. You have given us the robe of sanctifying grace at baptism. You have instituted the Sacrament of Penance so that we can regain the whiteness of sanctifying grace in our souls. Lord help us never despair or give up- You told St. Faustina that I am Love and Mercy itself…. Let no soul fear to draw near to Me, even though its sins be as scarlet…. My mercy is greater than your sins and those of the entire world (Divine Mercy in My Soul). Lord, let us wash our robes in the living waters of Your grace that we may live with You forever in Heaven!

In His Name

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

Saturday of the Sixth Week of Easter

In His Name

Ask the Father in My Name and He will grant you whatever you ask for on My behalf. Have confidence and always refer to the Flame of Love of My Holy Mother because the Three Divine Persons are obligated to her. (Jesus) (October 19, 1962).

Today’s Readings: Jesus said to his disciples:
“Amen, amen, I say to you,
whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you.
Until now you have not asked anything in my name;
ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be complete. (John 16)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, why do I feel like You keep asking us to ask You for anything. And why does it seem that we really do not ask You for anything- at least not with the Holy boldness we read about in Hebrews 4:16, to go boldly to the Throne of Grace. Why are our prayers, in a word, wimpy, so afraid to really ask You and say out loud what we really need? Because You are our loving Father who is not about to give us snakes when we really need fishes (Luke 11:11). In fact in that Gospel of Luke we read further about persistent prayer. To “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Even when it is midnight and the door has been long closed! So let’s do it- do we need healing or a miracle perhaps? Or for circumstances to change? Or just for peace in the storm? Lord may we just ask and ask with confidence holding Our Mother’s Hand and in Your Holy and Mighty Name! May our humble prayers be Your Command in Your Most Holy and Divine Will, Fiat! We believe, we receive!

Many People In This City

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

Friday of the Sixth Week of Easter

Many People In This City

Mary: “You can only explain my Flame of Love to others by speaking about it. You have no right to be silent because of cowardice, pride, negligence or fear of sacrifice. (Mary) (Diary Page 283)

Today’s Readings: One night while Paul was in Corinth, the Lord said to him in a vision,
“Do not be afraid.
Go on speaking, and do not be silent, for I am with you.
No one will attack and harm you,
for I have many people in this city. (Acts 18)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, especially today, like St. Paul we may all feel afraid to share the Gospel. All we have to do is post something on Facebook to a general audience and watch what happens or say something at a social gathering about faith and check out the response. Our world has become secular. But is it really that or perhaps is it that there is a very loud minority that would want us silent? Because the fact of the matter is that there are many people who have faith and many others who are looking  for the hope that is in us (1 Peter 3:15). Lord, I have never known anyone who has turned down prayer or an encouraging word. So let us not be afraid but go on speaking and not let human respect get in the way. How can they know unless someone teaches them ? (Acts 8:31). Blessed Mother, spread the effects of Grace of The Flame of Love over all humanity!

Waiting For The Power From On High

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

Solemnity of the Ascension of Our Lord /Our Lady of Fatima


Waiting for the Power from On High


Have total confidence in Me, this is the key to My Heart. Put aside your doubts. The Holy Spirit whom you invoke frequently will take possession of your soul through Our Mother, His favorite. (March 4-7, 1962)


Today’s Readings: He answered them, “It is not for you to know the times or seasons that the Father has established by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1)


Prayer Meditation- Lord, with the Ascension we enter now the time of waiting with great expectancy! You are in Heaven but the promised Spirit has yet to enter hearts! Many of us Lord wait with expectation- we may be waiting to hear about a doctor’s report, waiting to hear about a job or promotion, waiting for a new baby, waiting for a loved one to pass. It is not up to us to know the time or seasons . But we have been promised power when the Holy Spirit comes upon us! We have that power living in us! Lord as we spend the next ten days waiting for Pentecost let us gather with Our Mother, the Mother of the Church in the upper room in fervent and devout prayer! Come Holy Spirit, Come by the means of the power of the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Live And Move And Have Our Being

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

Wednesday of the Sixth Week of Easter

Live and Move and Have Our Being

“My little one, your profound sorrow for sins will move many to repentance, and sinners will return to Me.” (Jesus) (April 15, 1964)

Today’s Readings: He made from one the whole human race to dwell on the entire surface of the earth, and he fixed the ordered seasons and the boundaries of their regions, so that people might seek God even perhaps grope for him and find him, though indeed he is not far from any one of us. For ‘In him we live and move and have our being,’ (Acts 17)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, it seems that the world, at least in the West has become like Athens where St. Paul was preaching. The people are “religious” but it is for idols made from human hands- it really is no different today. St. Paul preached about Your Goodness Lord and Your Providence that we would seek You in whom we live and move and have our being. We cannot take even one breath without you! Lord, let us have profound sorrow for the sins of the world and offer our loving acts of prayer and sacrifice that sinners would return to You!

Chain Breaker

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

Tuesday of the Sixth Week of Easter

Chain Breaker

Let Him chain me to His Sacred Feet so I would always be united to Him. Thus, I would always feel sheltered. He then asked me to renounce myself because I tend to be distracted and worldly. (Elizabeth ) (Diary Page 35)

Today’s Readings: But Paul shouted out in a loud voice, “Do no harm to yourself; we are all here.” He asked for a light and rushed in and, trembling with fear, he fell down before Paul and Silas. Then he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” And they said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you and your household will be saved.” (Acts 16)


Prayer Meditation- Lord, we read about Paul and Silas in prison, and yet it was the guard and so often us who are in chains. The earthquake that opened the prison doors was the opportunity for the guard to come to You to be saved! So often Lord, it is the earthquakes in our lives that come out of nowhere that do just that- that cause us to tremble in fear and yet if we reach out to You, we will be set free from the chains of sin and darkness that have kept us in prison. Lord help us not to return to being worldly and distracted, to our old lives- break our chains so that we can live united to You!

Living In The Spirit-Real Time

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

Monday of the Sixth Week of Easter

Living in the Spirit- Real Time

Jesus: “And I tell you: From now on, no longer speak of yourself. The ‘I’ in you must cease completely. Let there be only Me for you. That is your real life.” (Jesus) (May 16, 1963)

Today’s Readings: Today’s Readings: Jesus said to his disciples: “When the Advocate comes whom I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father he will testify to me. And you also testify, because you have been with me from the beginning. (John 15)


Prayer Meditation- Lord, You have promised that You will send the Advocate. In fact, if we are baptized and confirmed You indeed have. Lord sometimes it gets so confusing- there are the gifts and the fruits but we can so often wonder if any of this is actually working in our lives. Yet Lord, You meant for Your Spirit to guide us in our real lives, real time! Lord, send us anew Your Spirit of Truth- let Him testify to You so that we can testify that this same Spirit that rose Jesus from the grave lives in us! (Romans 8:11) Come Holy Spirit with all of Your Gifts- let Your Peace rule in our hearts (Colossians 3:15).

Come Holy Spirit

Sixth Sunday of Easter


Come Holy Spirit


“Now, You must endure the suffering and darkness which My disciples experienced after My death. But as I sent the Holy Spirit upon them, I will also send Him upon all those for whom you must suffer.” (Jesus) (May 15, 1965)


Today’s Readings: “I have told you this while I am with you. The Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and remind you of all that I told you. (John 14)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, we read how You spent time with the Apostles, getting them ready not only for what was to come soon, Your Death, but also the coming of The Holy Spirit! You promised that The Holy Spirit would come and remind them of all You told them. You make that same promise to us too- but are we asking for the Holy Spirit to come into our hearts? Are we asking for His Gifts given to us at Baptism and Confirmation? Are we manifesting His Fruits? Lord particularly in these times, we can feel like we are walking in darkness. But we are never alone and You are always with us! Lord, help us to offer our daily suffering and darkness in union with You for the salvation of many souls! Come Holy Spirit! Come by the means of the Power of the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

Chosen Out Of The World

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

Saturday of the Fifth Week of Easter

Chosen Out Of The World

“That first meeting was the great step, My little one, when My Mother entrusted you to Me in a special way. Since then, My little one, you have been flying like an arrow towards Me. In your flight, never turn to look back at earth so that the world’s noise does not bother you.” (Jesus) (April 8, 1962)

Today’s Readings: Today’s Readings: Jesus said to his disciples: “If the world hates you, realize that it hated me first If you belonged to the world, the world would love its own; but because you do not belong to the world, and I have chosen you out of the world. (John 15)


Prayer Meditation- Lord, You have chosen us out of the world. Not to go live in some cloister somewhere, at least most of us who live in families and have jobs and are living the day to day life. But You have called us to come away from the world’s noise and to keep our eyes fixed on You in our sojourn here on Earth. Lord, many of us have felt it as we grow closer to You- friends and family who don’t “get” all the changes in us. Or how we view what was so important to us before in our work and our entertainments as so much straw! (Thomas Aquinas). Lord help us not to look back but to look up because we are Your children now- what we will be we do not know but we know we will be like You! (1 John 3:2). Help us to fly to You Lord today!

I Chose You

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

Friday of the Fifth Week of Easter

I Chose You

This is why I chose you to be the instrument of our heavenly messages, so that the world will see how prevailing is the Divine Will that wants to be manifested only through the weak. (Jesus) (February 17, 1964)

Today’s Readings: It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you
and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain,
so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you.
This I command you: love one another. (John 15)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, You chose us! If we spend some time to really meditate on this it can’t help but blow us away. You chose us- not because of anything wonderful about us or our achievements or our status in this world. You choose the weak to confound the strong, not the other way around. (1 Corinthians 1:27). And the amazing thing is that we can fall and we can fail and we can totally blow it and we can still rest in the blessed assurance that You have not taken back Your choice. We are weak and we are no surprise to You! Lord to be messengers in this age of darkness- to bring the Kingdom of Your Divine Will on Earth is something given to the little ones. Those who come to You like St. Therese like a little child. So let us come to You as children- repent of anything that has gotten in the way of our total dependence on You, Abba Father, because the Kingdom has been hidden from those who are wise in this world and revealed to the little ones. (Matthew 11:25).

Remain In Him

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

Thursday of the Fifth Week of Easter

Remain In Him

I am your way and your life. Everything passes away, only your work for souls remains.” (Jesus) (January 18, 1964)

Today’s Readings: Jesus said to his disciples:

“As the Father loves me, so I also love you. Remain in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and remain in his love.(John 15)

Prayer Meditation: Lord, it seems like it should be so easy- just remain in Your Love! But how many things pull us so many directions- temptations, fears, anxieties, troubles all around. And then there we are trying to white knuckle it all by ourselves! Lord You told Saint Faustina that the cause of our falls is that we rely on ourselves and not on You! So how do we remain in You, the only Love that lasts? Help us Lord to remain faithful to prayer, meditating on Your Word, and the Sacraments as often as we can even Spiritual Communions! Without You we can do nothing- let’s not even try it ourselves today- only Your Love remains, all else passes!

Staying Connected

Wednesday of the Fifth Week of Easter

Staying Connected

Did you forget that I wanted you to renounce all distracting literature? Let your life be one of contemplation, prayer and sacrifice. (Jesus) (September 2, 1963)

Today’s Gospel: Today’s Readings:

Jesus said to his disciples: “I am the true vine, and my Father is the vine grower. He takes away every branch in me that does not bear fruit, and everyone that does he prunes so that it bears more fruit. (John 15)


Prayer Meditation: O Lord, there is so much in our world that distracts us from Your Voice and Your Will. Our time on Earth is short and distractions are just wasted time! Help us to stay connected to You, the One True Vine by prayer and by offering every moment to You! Let us not just take up space but may we truly bear fruit (Galatians 5)! May we stay connected to You as we unplug from the world.

Peace He Gives Us

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

Tuesday of the Fifth Week of Easter

Peace He Gives Us

Jesus: “Calm down, My little one. There is no reason to lose the peace of your soul over such a question. (Jesus) (September 1, 1964)

Today’s Readings: Jesus said to his disciples: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid. (John 14)

Prayer Meditation- O Lord so many things disturb our peace- questions, worries, fears, our own weaknesses and sins. On our own we are shipwrecked. Yet You always bring Your Peace- no matter what questions we have or fears that trouble us. You calm the seas of our souls. Let us call on You Jesus and not let our hearts ever be troubled!

Remind Me

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

Monday of the Fifth Week of Easter

Remind Me

Write down again My teaching which corroborates the teaching of the Holy Father. We have not yet meditated on that, but it is very important. Should you have forgotten about this, then I want to remind you. (Jesus) (February 29, 1964)

Today’s Readings: Today’s Readings: “I have told you this while I am with you. The Advocate, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in my name- he will teach you everything and remind you of all that I told you.” (John 14)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, there is a country song called Remind Me about a couple who wants to remember the better times. Lord, You have sent us The Holy Spirit to remind us not only of memories of You but what You are saying to us right now at every moment if we would but listen to Your Voice and harden not our hearts (Hebrews 3:15). Lord You dwell in us- help us to love You more and keep Your Word today and every day!

They Will Know Us By Our Love

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

Fifth Sunday Of Easter

They Will Know Us By Our Love


My Mother accompanied Me everywhere with her love, her sacrifices and her prayers. You must do the same, and I will bless your efforts. (January 17, 1964)


Today’s Readings: I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another. This is how all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” (John 13)


Prayer Meditation- Lord, in this world, they are not going to truly know us or be convinced by our knowledge of the faith, our intellectual rigor, or even signs and wonders if they are not done in love. Without love, we are but clanging symbols! (1 Corinthians 13). To love like Our Mother ,Lord is to accompany our loved ones everywhere with love, prayer and sacrifice. To love like You is to lay down our lives even when it is hard and no one is around to console us. Lord this is a hard love! And impossible to do on our own but Lord Your Grace is enough! And then use us broken as we are Lord to let Your Kingdom come through us!

Complete Joy

Feast of Saint Matthias

Complete Joy


Our Lady allowed me to feel in my soul the wonderful union of the saints. I was filled with an indescribable joy. (Elizabeth) (November 4, 1962)


Today’s Readings: “I have told you this so that my joy might be in you and your joy might be complete. This is my commandment: love one another as I love you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.(John 15)


Prayer Meditation- Lord, we read today about complete joy- the joy that comes from union with You! Lord You have laid down Your Life for us- enduring the Cross because of the joy that was set before You (Hebrews 12:2). You ask us to do the same- in union with You Lord help us to love those in our path today and joyfully carry the cross that You have given us, as a gift from all eternity, from Your inmost Heart (St. Francis de Sales).

Do Not Let Your Hearts Be Troubled

Friday of the Fourth Week of Easter

Do Not Let Your Hearts Be Troubled

After your death, will abound in the treasures of your heart those who will know, bless and glorify God. God helped you with His boundless grace to have a life filled with treasures. Those who will live after you on earth can draw abundantly from these treasures. They will be able to follow the simple road of your life. By this path, they also can reach Me.” (Jesus) (November 17-18, 1964)

Today’s Readings:

Jesus said to his disciples: “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You have faith in God; have faith also in me. In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If there were not, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? (John 14)

Prayer Meditation: O Lord, You have prepared a place for us with You and the Blessed Mother and all the angels and saints! How could we ever be troubled? We are Your instruments to lead souls to You- nothing we give You, no matter how little and insignificant it may seem, is wasted when united in love to You Jesus!

What He Is Telling Us

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


Thursday of the Fourth Week of Easter

What He Is Telling Us

This happens day after day, year after year. You do not realize that I, also, am a Man and that you do not have to distance yourselves from Me since you have received Me in your heart. You should speak to Me in simple words. Do not leave Me alone. My Heart yearns for love and confidence. I want you to speak with Me so I can respond with the fullness of My grace. (Jesus) (May 1962)

Today’s Readings: From now on I am telling you before it happens,
so that when it happens you may believe that I AM.
Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever receives the one I send
receives me, and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me.” (John 13)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, You keep telling us what we need in Your Word so that we believe that You are who You are. You have given us everything. And yet so many do not believe- even those of us who do take Your Word for granted and do not pay attention with awe and reverence to what You speak to us each day! Your Word should literally stop us in our tracks if we are truly listening with the heart. May we receive You every day with love and confidence and so that You can pour out the fullness of Your Grace into our hearts through Your Word and through the Sacraments.

Christ Our Light

Christ Our Light

“My little one, I want that not one soul be damned. You should want this together with me. For this purpose, I place in your hands a beam of light that is the Flame of Love of my heart.” (Mary) (January 15, 1964 )

Today’s Readings: I came into the world as light, so that everyone who believes in me might not remain in darkness.(John 12)


Prayer Meditation- O Jesus You are the Light of the World- You came as light in Your Incarnation and You come as light in our times to pour out Your Graces into this critical time of darkness. Come Lord Jesus into our hearts and let us not delay in passing this Flame of Love to our neighbors by prayer, sacrifice, and acts of mercy! Let us desire that Your Light would pour out and illumine all hearts so that none would remain in darkness and let us act on this desire in concert with the Holy Spirit and Your Blessed Mother!

Encouragement In The Everyday

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

Tuesday of the Fourth Week of Easter

Encouragement In The Everyday

Jesus: “You are too immersed in earthly things, My little one.”
Jesus: “I did not say that to discourage you. I want to encourage
you so that you do not seek relief by looking to the earth in your
battles. Look only at Me. I want that, while snuggling yourself right
against Me and surrendering to Me in your arduous struggles, you
never stop looking only upwards.” (Jesus) (February 7, 1963)

Today’s Readings: The news about them reached the ears of the Church in Jerusalem,
and they sent Barnabas to go to Antioch.
When he arrived and saw the grace of God,
he rejoiced and encouraged them all
to remain faithful to the Lord in firmness of heart,
for he was a good man, filled with the Holy Spirit and faith. (Acts 11)

Prayer Meditation- O Lord, You encourage us in our everyday battles to seek Your Face! Let us rejoice in Your Grace and encourage others to persevere in remaining faithful in their battles! Let us be like Barnabas and be encouragers because we are filled with the Holy Spirit!
