A letter from Győző Kindelmann, International Coordinator, brings understanding to the Flame of Love National Conference Theme: Convey This Flame Which I Present to You!
Győző Kindelmann emphasized the 60th Anniversary of the Flame of Love Movement marked on April 13, 1962, when Elizabeth Kindelmann received the first message from Our Lady, “There is so much sin in the country. Help me to save it! I place a beam of light into your hand. This is my Heart’s Flame of Love. Add your love to my Heart’s Flame of Love, and pass it on, my little daughter!” (Mary) pg.19.
Our Lady began her fight for souls by commissioning her little Carmelite, Elizabeth Kindelmann, to take up Her Cause. In Győző Kindelmann’s letter, he clarifies the word, “vidd”, Hungarian for “convey”, meaning commissioned. Our Lady wishes each of us in the Flame of Love movement to be collaborators with her to save the world by receiving the Flame of Love in our hearts and passing on the Flame of Love to others. “Take up my Cause. You cannot rest. Do not be tired. Do not give up. All interested in my Cause must come together.” (Mary) pg.68.
Conveying this Flame of Love is a call to action. “Do not delay. You have responsibility for many souls. I do not want even one soul to be condemned. This responsibility does not just fall upon priests. The responsibility is great, but the work will not be in vain.” (Mary) pg.68.
By spreading the Flame of Love to others, we work with Our Lady to form a spiritual army resolutely capable of fighting evil. By receiving the Flame of Love, we are protected from evil.
“My Mother is Noah’s Ark.” (Jesus) pg.109. We are Our Lady’s Special Fighting Force. “All are invited to join my special fighting force. Do not love comfort. Do not wait. Confront the storm to save souls. Give yourselves to the work. If you do nothing, you abandon the earth to Satan and to sin. Open your eyes and see all the dangers that claim victims and threaten your own souls.” (Jesus) pg.68.
Similarly, Győző Kindelmann refers to St. Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, “Therefore, put on the armor of God, that you may be able to resist on the evil day and, having done everything, to hold your ground. So, stand fast with your loins girded in truth, clothed with righteousness as a breastplate, and your feet shod in readiness for the gospel of peace. In all circumstances, hold faith as a shield, to quench all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” (Eph6:13-17).
St. Paul describes a warrior’s garb for the spiritual battle. Győző Kindelmann reminds us of this new instrument, the Flame of Love, presented to us by Our Lady, is our warriors’ garb as the spiritual battle rages. “The renewal of the Earth will take place through the power and imploring force of the Blessed Virgin Mary.” (Jesus)pg.61 Our Lady pours out graces enabling us to embody Christ-like virtues to the level of sainthood so we can resist the tactics of the devil. “By my Flame of Love a new era of grace, never before known on the earth will begin.” (Mary) pg.64.
Satan’s strategies encroach on every person, every family, and every country. However, the Flame of Love effectively blinds Satan. Jesus and Mary told Elizabeth the Spiritual War is a battle for souls enslaved by the enemy and headed for hell. The loss of these souls causes Our Heavenly Mother so much heartache.
“The spreading of the Flame of Love must be the main purpose of your life. Let it flow smoothly like streaming water, which nothing can stop. The purifying grace saves and gives life.” (Jesus) pg.81. Satan takes up his battle against the human race as never before. (Mary) pg.34.
Győző Kindelmann reports the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart has reached every continent. Virtual Flame of Love communities formed in many new countries with the help of the internet and an Apostolic Spirit overcoming the impossible. “Humanity needs secular people with a spirit of prayer.” (Mary) pg.109.
Győző Kindelmann stresses the urgency to Convey the Flame of Love, especially to the young. Our Lady says, “These will be difficult times, but don’t be afraid; you who accept and remain faithful to my requests will receive many graces in desperate times.”
Győző Kindelmann celebrates sixty years of spreading the Flame of Love but calls for self-examination to avoid passivity and worldly influences. Let us often repeat in our hearts Jesus’ and Mary’s messages given to Elizabeth Kindelmann; Convey this Flame which I present to you with renewed fervor. “Do not be afraid to speak! You must shake people and awaken them from their lethargy. You cannot leave them with empty hands and empty hearts. You must speak!” (Jesus) pg.105.My Flame of Love will blind Satan to the degree that you spread it to the whole world. This Flame will work miracles in their hearts. They will communicate this miracle to others. (Mary) pg. 44.
