Elizabeth Kindelmann’s Spiritual Director, Fr. Rona, S.J., was a missionary to Latin America and translated her Hungarian Diary into Spanish. The Movement started early in Latin America and came to some areas in the United States from Mexico and from a Canadian center. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is now the center for the Flame of Love Movement in the United States.
In 2013, the Diary of the Flame of Love of Elizabeth Kindelmann was translated, simplified, and distributed through the efforts of First National Director for the U.S., Anthony Mullen. Archbishop Charles J. Chaput (Philadelphia) gave his imprimatur to the English translation of the Flame of Love Simplified Version of the Diary (translated from the Spanish Diary) which was released by the Center.
