Elizabeth’s mother had 13 children, six sets of twins and, finally, Elizabeth, who alone lived to adulthood. She had an extremely difficult childhood and at 11, was going to be adopted by a Swiss family. Fortunately, she missed the train, stayed in Budapest, tried to enter two religious orders, and joined the parish choir. There, she met Karoly Kindelmann, whom she married in 1930 at age 16.
Karoly was a hardworking, wonderful husband and they had a happy marriage. However, he died in 1946, leaving her with 6 children when she was 32. She lived as a widow for the remaining 39 years under a Communist regime. Her diary details her many jobs, her poverty and her economic insecurities. She was an excellent mother and welcomed her married children and their grandchildren back into her home. Beginning in 1962, she herself lived in a little shed in their garden the rest of her life. Our Lord and Our Lady spoke with her for the rest of her life, revealing the mystery of the Flame of Love. She recorded all her experiences in her diary. Elizabeth Szanto Kindelmann

Write down My words...
Elizabeth was deeply devout but for a number of years, God tested her by mystical trials and she experience a "dark night of the soul." Finally, after the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, (July 16, 1961) the darkness broke and she again experienced Jesus’ presence and was told to write.
During the years going from 1961 to 1983, Elizabeth received heavenly messages and Jesus and the Virgin Mary addressed her with internal locutions, words which she heard clearly in her soul.
Even during her lifetime in Budapest, many priests accepted her revelations because they saw her goodness.
In June 2009, after a few years of investigation, His Eminence Cardinal Péter Erdö, Primate of Hungary, established The Flame of Love Movement as a Private Association of the Faithful with Juridic Personality and the Diary received the Imprimatur.
So though the Movement was established in Budapest, the approval is for the Universal Church.
The full diary is about 300 pages (an excellent simplified version has 121 pages). From either version, the reader easily grasps the central messages given to Elizabeth by Jesus and Mary about the Flame of Love.

Church is not only a crowd gathered around a stage, but a Community sharing life around a table.
One of the central ways we grow as disciples of Jesus is by having intentional relationships with people who share the same goal.
