Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Extraordinary International Congress

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

On behalf of myself, John Sullivan, Fr. Jorge Reyes, and Victoria Palmer, I want to extent to you our sincere gratitude for your prayers for the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Extraordinary International Congress which took place on March 1st – 7th, 2024 in Singapore. The purpose of this Congress was twofold, to elect new International Coordinators and to make revisions to our current Statutes.

After an almost 29 hour flight schedule to Singapore, we were met with the most amazing welcome of hospitality and generosity from Flame of Love Singapore Leaders and Devotees! National Director, Adeline Quek, Spiritual Director , Rev. Fr. Paul Ngo, MEP and the entire Singapore team had been prayerfully planning for the event for almost 6 month, and it showed. As a global Movement, we are grateful!!

There were over 20 Countries who gathered and this was by far the greatest representation and confirmation at how fast the Flame of Love has recently spread. Nations joined together as One, with representation from many countries such as… Peru, Ecuador, Argentina, Brazil, Democratic Republic of Congo, France, Canada, Poland, Australia, Ireland, Philippines, United Kingdom, and more! Within only a few years, Our Blessed Mother has inflamed Her Movement with hundred, perhaps thousands of new members around the globe. Győző Kindelmann, Grandson of Elizabeth Kindelmann and former International Director, gave us an opening message that spoke about the need for renewal, not only in the Flame of Love Movement , but in the entire Church.

” I believe that the time for new wine in our Movement has come! This is not a sign of sickness or weakness! It is a sign of vitality and dynamism! … I see the signs of rebirth! … I believe that our Movement will really move when everyone from the National Coordinators to the Cenacle Leaders recognizes the need for renewal. “

To further open the Congress we were blessed to celebrate Mass with His Eminence William Cardinal Goh of Singapore, who gave a very powerful homily expressing his love and devotion to Our Blessed Mother. ( Video below… notice the beautiful vestments!)

Right away, we got to work! Each day gathering together to look intently at our statues and how to prepare for the new wine being poured out into the Movement. We were blessed to have with us in attendance for the week, Canon Law expert Bishop Arulselvam Rayappan of Salem diocese in India who guided us through the process and lovingly corrected our steps when we got off course. We took into account our former Statues as well as some guidance from Cardinal Erdo and after several days, we were satisfied with the revisions. Additionally we added 4 new Resolutions and these updates are now being formulated by a Canon Lawyer and will be shared in the near future.

After 4 days of gathering for Holy Mass, breaking bread together during meals, and often painstakingly long meetings about statues, all the delegates were treated with a tour of Singapore, in particular, 3 Catholic Churches. We all enjoyed the change of scenery and fellowship with one another as we flocked through the city, spreading the Flame of Love, as Mother Mary’s Children.

Finally, the day came to elect two new leaders, an International and Assistant International Coordinator. Before the election, we celebrated Holy Mass at The Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church, with pastor and Spiritual Director of the Flame of Love of The Immaculate Heart of Mary Singapore, Rev. Fr. Paul Ngo, MEP. After Holy Mass we passed the Flame of Love.

Following Holy Mass, we went back to the retreat center and began the election process when ultimately, 5 people were nominated for the important responsibility of International Director. After voting, it was clear in the first round that John Sullivan III had the majority and the needed 9 votes to be elected.

Next round of voting was for the Assistant International Coordinator and 7 names were considered. After only 2 rounds of voting, again it was clear as to whom Our Lord and Our Lady had chosen, Father Jorge Reyes.

John Sullivan and Fr. Reyes have been working together for many years, and as John expressed, he has learned a lot about the Flame of Love directly from Father Reyes! Both reside in the US and together they make a dynamic pair, both with unique gifts to offer the International Movement for Our Lady’s Cause.

Please join me in praying for John Sullivan and Fr. Jorge as our new International Directors! And I humble ask for your prayers as we move forward in UNITY for the propagation of the Flame of Love.
