Treasurer and Area Leader of Memphis, TN
Teresa’s Favorite Diary Quote: “Mary: “My little one, my Flame of Love has become so incandescent that I want to spread on you not only its light, but also its warmth with all its power. My Flame of Love is so great that I can no longer keep it within me; it leaps out at you with explosive force. My love that is spreading will overcome the satanic hatred that contaminates the world so that the greatest number of souls is saved from damnation. I am confirming there has never been anything like this before. This is the greatest miracle ever I am accomplishing for all…
Enter into battle, we will be the conquerors. My Flame of Love will blind satan to the same extent that all of you spread it around the world. Just as the whole world knows my name, so I want the Flame of Love of my heart performing miracles in the depths of the hearts to also be known. There will be no need to investigate this miracle. All will feel its authenticity within their hearts. Whoever has felt it once will communicate it to others because my grace will be active in them. There is no need for authentication. I will authenticate it myself in every soul so that all recognize the effusion of grace of my Flame of Love.” Pg 99 of the Full Diary
In the secular professional world a CPA, then many other roles in accounting leading to current Director of Planning and Financial Analysis and Treasure for the Flame of Love US. I was led into my professional career with the passion of seeking the truth in numbers so that management could make the best decisions. In the world of faith, Jesus put a deep desire inside me to work directly with the homeless and I did it for 15 years writing a book about the experiences. Lector, Cantor, Extraordinary Minister, PRE Teacher 8th grade, and parish Social Ministry Director, and Cursillista. There were six siblings in my family (1 now passed away) and we count ourselves extra blessed to still be worshipping together as adults in the same church we grew up in. Had a vision from God in 2007 that in 5 years (2013) I would die to myself but Jesus would walk with me. The year of 2013 was full of four significant tragedies in my family beginning with my Father-in-Law dying of an accident, 2 others I won’t mention, and my Mother’s death. When making Cursillo I was given the Diary of Elizabeth Kindelmann and read where Jesus asked her to die to herself as well to collaborate with Him to save souls through being the first to receive the signal grace of the Flame of Love that Mary asked the Trinity for. I could not put the diary down as my heart and soul was indeed inflamed by the Flame of Love. This led me to a prayer Cenacle, then starting one of my own, then taking on a leadership role in the Memphis, TN area and then finally to the Treasurer roll at the national level. Looking back I can see where I had been divinely formed and prepared for the grace in advance.
I can not imagine life without the grace of the Flame of Love anymore than I could imagine losing a child. I feel like a child sitting at the feet of Jesus and Mary watching them work to save souls and release souls from purgatory and I cannot believe they want collaboration from us pitiful souls. Mary says in the Diary of Elizabeth Kindelmann “I grant to all of you the grace to be able to see the success of your effort.” With that promise, I have prayed to see that success and she shows it to me every day. Father Otto described it beautifully when he said it is like a time released grace that you feel more and more over time. It is not exactly the same in each person but one common effect is the burning desire for love of others and to pray for them more and more and to see others come to Jesus as a result of those prayers! I have so many examples! The one effect of this grace that I reflect on all the time was the night Jesus allowed me to feel my mothers bliss as she was released from purgatory into heaven. I’ll never forget it and it has exploded in me the desire to pray more for the release of souls from purgatory.
