The Flame of Love is a gift of pure grace from God the Father, merited through the wounds of Christ, that were obtained by the plea of a Perfect Mother. It is gift for these times so that satan will be blinded and many souls will be saved. It is from the love within our transformed hearts that we want to share these graces with our families, friends, and church community. The Flame of Love is truly shared heart to heart.
But how do we get people on The Ark, “on board” with the radical and powerful promises of The Flame of Love and not become frustrated or weary when they turn away?
Is it all about the numbers? Well, yes and no.
“I know that many will fall again, but if I see you are not going astray as you distance yourselves from Me, I can quickly raise you from your prostration since My divine hand is close to you. Then, as I raise you, the sin falls away instantly and you become lighter again. Gratitude is all I want in return. Tell Me just one word: ‘Thanks.’Page 162 Full Spiritual Diary
You ask, ‘How often?’ Every time I raise you! Surely, this is the least you can do. However, if you thank Me for others, then you are well engaged on the road of progress. Also, My Elizabeth, I want you to pray so the number of repentant and grateful souls may grow from day to day.”
The Flame of Love is still relatively new to the Church. Even the simple added petition to the Hail Mary can cause people to back away. But persevere in prayer and give thanks for the souls that Jesus and Mary bring. The Flame of Love is shared heart to heart and this love and unity of purpose binds us together in a sacred oneness. So while we share it with great zeal, don’t be too concerned about the number of people who respond, only that you persevere in sharing these graces. May our hands gather in UNITY and may we ask and pray for the gift of fortitude and gratitude.
Try and enter more deeply into the commitment of the Weekly Agenda, our apostolic works in the Flame of Love, which Jesus has given to help order our week and make reparation for souls. Be creative in ways to sacrifice for love of Jesus.
“Always give Me new and abundant sacrifices. I am sowing in your soul the seed of My graces, My holy doctrine. Cultivate it in your soul by your prayers, mortifications, and a continual acceptance of sacrifices. Do not forget how painful for Me is the fate of the seeds that fall by the roadside.”Page 152 Full Spiritual Diary
“On Thursday and Friday, I ask you, my daughter, to offer a very special reparation to my Divine Son. This will be an hour for the family to make reparation. Begin this hour with a spiritual reading, followed by the Rosary or other prayers in an atmosphere of recollection and fervor.
Let there be at least two or three, because My Divine Son is present where two or three are gathered. Start making the sign of the Cross five times offering yourselves to the Eternal Father through the wounds of my Divine Son. Do the same at the conclusion. Sign yourselves this way when you get up and when you go to bed, and during the day. This will bring you closer to the Eternal Father through my Divine Son, filling your heart with graces.”Page 27 of the Full Spiritual Diary

Be a Light
When we have the Flame of Love alive in our hearts, we become partakers of the Divine Nature of Christ Himself, we become united with Him. Others will see it and they will want it! The National Spiritual Advisor, Monsignor Chieffo, shares that what attracted him to the Flame of Love was the witness of those who had been devoted to it in his parish. He saw the light of Jesus. Father Mike Davis shares this…
“Family members are distressed because they have distanced themselves from a relationship with God, who has made each of us for Himself. Her (Mary’s) lived faith is a beacon which is brighter and potentially more inviting to her family members when she possesses peace, since nothing is impossible with God, as Mother Mary had learned during the Annunciation.”Fr Mike Davis
So by our witness, they will see the warmth of the Flame, Jesus Christ.
The Power of the Personal Invitation
Ask, invite, ask again, and repeat. And please do also include your pastor with a personal invitation to join you in a Flame of Love cenacle.
“Trust. I have always told you that whatever you ask for in confidence, consider you have already received it. Do you think that if you asked Me for souls, I would not grant them to you? May our hands gather in unity. Ask! Never grow tired of asking and desiring for Me. If large numbers were asking, how many would be converted. All of you have been called to My work of Salvation, fathers and mothers, learned and ignorant, the well and the sick. All can work for Me, the free man and the one suffering in prison. What is important is the availability of the soul and the spiritual freedom which constitutes the culture of the soul. Especially the sick, yes, in truth, these can fly on the wings of absolute trust in Me. With a single request, they can obtain a massive conversion of souls.”Page 156 of the Full Spiritual Diary
And If All Else Fails, Bring Food.
Awww, yes, refreshments! Break some bread, incorporate all the Flame of Love prayers into your cenacle, and ask questions from those who attend. Hospitality is becoming a lost virtue, so make the Flame of Love cenacle reflective of what it really is, a refuge for weary hearts.
A Flame of Love Prayer cenacle is like heaven on earth…
“They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone kept feeling a sense of awe; and many wonders and signs were taking place through the apostles. And all the believers were together and had all things in common; and they would sell their property and possessions and share them with all, to the extent that anyone had need. Day by day continuing with one mind in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they were taking their meals together with gladness and sincerity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord was adding to their number day by day those who were being saved.”Acts 2:42-47
