Flame of Love Rosary

Flame of Love
Introduction to the Flame of Love Rosary

We are all supposed to be part of the Church Militant. That, at least for me, has been an unmeasurable goal. How can I do anything except say my rosary every day and try to fast on Wednesdays and Fridays and go to Mass at least twice a week. The problem is that, by definition, it is spiritual not tangible so am I doing a lot? Or very little? And isn't it subject to my poor attempts at staying focused?

Then I found the Flame of Love Rosary. For every three Hail Marys I say, I can take 10 souls out of purgatory and into Heaven. When I say a 5 decade rosary I say 53 Hail Marys and then I say the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be for the pope’s intention; that makes 154 Hail Marys which is 18 triplets or 180 souls going into Heaven. “But wait! There is more!” St. Louis Marie DeMonfort said that when I say a rosary in a group each participant gets the cumulative spiritual benefit of all the members in the group. That means when I say a rosary with you then we each get the benefit of saying 36 triplets (54 Hail Marys, 18 triplets, for me and then I get the same for you). But then you also get 36 tripets (54 Hail Marys, 18 triplets for you and 54 Hail Marys, 18 triplets for me). That means together we get 72 triplets or 720 souls out of purgatory. Not bad for 30 minutes.

So now I am looking for group rosaries. Especially over Zoom. Zoom is free for up to 40 minute conferences. With zoom we can get together and say a rosary no matter where we are. We just need to agree on a time. And I don’t care if I am hacked. That is enough time to say a group Flame of Love Rosary. The formula for a group is the participants squared times 180 souls. Thus a 10 person Flame of Love rosary releases 100 x 180 = 18,000 souls. But if you join a rosary where not everyone is saying a Flame of Love rosary the results can still be remarkable. With zoom there is one designated leader and one designated responder and everyone else mutes their microphone and joins the responder. But let’s say there are 3 of us who respond with the Flame of Love response, so the formula is now Flame of Love responders (3 in our example) squared times the (total participants minus the Flame of Love responders) times 180 souls. So last Friday morning there were 656 participants on the “That Man is You” TMIY [1] rosary. Thus the formula is (656-3)*180*9 [3 squared]= 1,057,860 souls. Now I am really part of the Church militant! And just think, I’ll bet all those souls who got into heaven would be more than happy to pray for our intentions. St. Theresa, the Little Flower, said that she would be able to do much more for souls here on earth from heaven than she could while she was still on earth.

If you joined in the Divine Mercy Novena check out what Jesus said on day 8: “Eighth Day, Friday: Today bring to Me the souls who are in the prison of Purgatory and immerse them in the abyss of My mercy. Let the torrents of My Blood cool down their scorching flames. All these souls are greatly loved by Me. They are making retribution to My justice. It is in your power to bring them relief. Draw all the indulgences from the treasury of My Church and offer them on their behalf. Oh, if you only knew the torments they suffer, you would continually offer for them the alms of the spirit and pay off their debt to My justice.”

Won’t you join the Church Militant?

The Flame of Love


THE FLAME OF LOVE PRAYER: Elizabeth Kindelmann wrote: “I am going to record what the Blessed Virgin told me in [October of] this year, 1962. I kept it inside for a long time without daring to write it down. It is a petition of the Blessed Virgin: ‘When you say the prayer that honors me, the Hail Mary, include this petition in the following manner: Hail Mary, full of grace ... pray for us sinners, spread the effect of grace of thy Flame of Love over all of humanity, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.’” The bishop asked Elizabeth: “Why should the very old Hail Mary be recited differently?” “On February 2, 1982, Our Lord explained, ‘Because of the Holy Virgin’s efficacious pleas, the Most Blessed Trinity granted the outpouring of the Flame of Love. For her sake, you must place this prayer in the Hail Mary so that, by its effect, humanity is converted.’ Our Lady also said, ‘I want to awaken humanity by this petition. This is not a new formula but a constant supplication. If at any moment, someone prays three Hail Mary’s in my honor, while referring to the Flame of Love, they will free a soul from purgatory. During November, one Hail Mary will free ten souls.’”

“On August 31, 1963, … as I interceded for the souls in purgatory, Our Lady spoke; ‘I value your longing for the souls in purgatory. Until now, you had to say 3 Hail Marys. In the future, three Hail Marys will free ten souls from that place of suffering.” [3]

THE UNITY PRAYER: Jesus said: “I made this prayer completely my own ... This prayer is an instrument in your hands. By collaborating with Me, Satan will be blinded by it; and because of his blindness, souls will not be led into sin.” May our feet journey together. May our hands gather in unity. May our hearts beat in unison. May our souls be in harmony. May our thoughts be as one. May our ears listen to the silence together. May our glances profoundly penetrate each other. May our lips pray together to gain mercy from the Eternal Father.

On August 1, 1962, three months after Our Lord introduced the Unity Prayer, Our Lady said to Elizabeth: “Now, Satan has been blinded for some hours and has ceased dominating souls. Lust is the sin making so many victims. Because Satan is now powerless and blind, the evil spirits are set and inert, as if they have fallen into lethargy. They do not understand what is happening. Satan has stopped giving them orders. Consequently, souls are freed from the domination of the evil one and are making sound resolutions. Once those millions of souls emerge from this event, they will be much stronger in their resolve to stay firm.”

The Flame of Love Movement

“Elizabeth Kindelmann was a laywoman from Budapest, Hungary who died in 1985. She, like St. Faustina, was given a mission by God and His Mother for His Church to emphasize a special Grace from God for His Church. She was always obedient to priests and bishops. Our Lady told her to gather 12 special pastors, four from within Budapest and 8 from outside the city to start a Movement to spread this special Grace to the whole world. Elizabeth was instructed to keep a Diary, which explains the special Grace, which God calls the “Grace from the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary” and “the greatest Grace given to mankind since the Incarnation”. God promised that this Grace would be spread to the whole world.

In the Diary, our Lady always speaks about the “Cause”, i.e. the Flame of Love Movement . She asks Elizabeth to be zealous and to speak often to these priests about “moving the Cause ahead.” Her priest-confessors were sometimes slow to understand and slow to act, even though our Lady asked for action. Yet, they were accepting and sympathetic toward Elizabeth.

Fr. Gabriel Rona, S.J., a Hungarian priest, was also a missionary to Latin America and translated her diary into Spanish. (His book was used for the English translations of both the entire diary and the Simplified Version). He was appointed the Spiritual Director of the Movement for many years. In 1989, Cardinal Echeverria Ruiz (Archdiocese of Guayaquil, Ecuador) approved Fr. Rona’s translation. In 1996, he approved the statutes of the Flame of Love Movement for his archdiocese and asked the Holy Father to approve the Movement for the whole world. Cardinal Stafford, prefect for the Congregation for the Laity, sent a letter encouraging the Cardinal in his work.

Cardinal Peter Erdo, Archbishop of Elizabeth’s Archdiocese of Budapest, went more deeply into the question by establishing a theological commission. In 2009, Cardinal Erdo said that the commission found her writings free from error. He gave his imprimatur; wrote about the importance of this Movement of Grace as a gift from God; and also formally established the Flame of Love as a lay movement in his archdiocese.

Since then, other Hungarian dioceses have done the same, as have other dioceses around the world. In the United States, the Flame of Love Movement is just beginning under the International Pious Association of the Faithful established to spread the Message to the whole world. This association has been in existence for many years in other countries of the world.

Anthony Mullen (who lives in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia where the National Center is located) has been named National Director by the International Association. Archbishop Chaput (Philadelphia) gave his imprimatur to the English translation from the Spanish of the Flame of Love Book released by the Center.

We see ourselves as a grassroots movement, trying to faithfully and prudently put into practice the desires of God and our Mother as described in the Diary. We pledge total loyalty and obedience to the Church. We especially invite all priests and religious to help us to guide this new Movement solely for God’s glory in His Church and according to His Will.” [4]

Blessed Virgin Mary, our cherished heavenly Mother, you love God and us, your children, so much that you offer us to your Divine Son Jesus on the Cross, to forgive us by our Heavenly Father and to obtain our salvation, so that all those who believe in Him do not perish but obtain eternal life. With a filial confidence, we pray to you, Virgin Mary, that the Flame of Love of your Immaculate Heart, kindled by the Holy Spirit, you ignite in our languid hearts the fire of a perfect love for God and all humanity, so that together with you, with one heart, we love God and our neighbor. Help us to transmit this holy Flame to all people of good will, so that the Flame of Love extinguishes the fire of hatred everywhere on earth and that Jesus, the prince of Peace, be the King and center of all hearts in the Sacrament of His Love on the throne of our altars. Amen

My Adorable Jesus, we ask you to take us in spirit before your Eucharistic Presence throughout the world. Take us and place us where we belong in the Divine Fire. Share with us your Immaculate Conception.

Prayer to St. Joseph
To you, O blessed Joseph, do we come in our tribulation, and having implored the help of your most holy spouse, we confidently invoke your patronage also. Through that charity which bound you to the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God and through the paternal love with which you embraced the Child Jesus, we humbly beg you graciously to regard the inheritance which Jesus Christ has purchased by his Blood, and with your power and strength to aid us in our necessities.

O most watchful Guardian of the Holy Family, defend the chosen children of Jesus Christ; O most loving father, ward off from us every contagion of error and corrupting influence; O our most mighty protector, be kind to us and from heaven assist us in our struggle with the power of darkness; As you once rescued the Child Jesus from deadly peril, so now protect God's Holy Church from the snares of the enemy and from all adversity; shield, too, each one of us by your constant protection, so that, supported by your example and your aid, we may be able to live piously, to die in holiness, and to obtain eternal happiness in heaven. Amen.

St. Joseph, Guardian of the Holy Family Pray for us.
St. Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church Pray for us.
St. Joseph, Terror of demons Pray for us.


Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy hear and answer me.

Prayers for the Pope
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be

[3] The Flame of Love The Spiritual Diary of Elizabeth Kindlemann p121 Queen of Peace Media
[5] The Incarnation, the greatest event in human history, took place on the “Little Celebration of Light”, the eight day of Chanukah. Chanukah celebrates the re-dedication of the Temple after it had been profaned in 139 B.C. The Israelites began the annual celebration of Chanukah the following year in 138 B.C.
[6] Her son, named John by the angel, had the spirit of Elijah, fulfilling the expectation of the Jews that Elijah would return for the Seder Meal.
[7] The Feast of Tabernacles celebrates the fact that God was physically present in the pilar of smoke and fire all during the Exodus.
[8] All Jews are required to live in sukkot during the celebration of “God with us” (Tabernacles). A sukkah is a tent with a leaky thatched roof.
[9] Tabernacles, the Great Celebration of Light is celebrated by erecting four 75’ Menorahs in the Court of Women.
[10] Because Jesus was born in a stable and inspected by the Shepherds, He was qualified to be a Paschal Lamb.
[11] Joseph was instructed by Gabriel to adopt Jesus when Gabriel told Joseph to name Jesus. In that culture naming was the adoptive act. The child was named at the time of circumcision. That Joseph adopted Jesus is confirmed by the fact that both Mathew and Luke give to Jesus Joseph’s genealogy. Joseph has two genealogies because his legal father had died without giving birth to an heir so his father’s half-brother following levirate law (Deut 25:5-20) married his mother to give him an heir. Joseph thus has a legal genealogy and a biological genealogy both of which go back to David. (One through Solomon and one through Nathan). All of which is only relevant if Joseph adopted Jesus.
[12] Redemption of a first born was done on the 30th day after birth and is normally not attended by the mother.
[13] Traveling at night was dangerous and they risked passing Jesus in the dark going the other way.
[14] The Temple was closed at sunset and re-opened at sunrise.
[15] The date Jesus was discovered missing was April 3rd, the day He died on the cross, and the date he was found was April 5th, the day He rose from the dead.
[16] Jesus was a Rabbi. He is called Rabbi throughout the New Testament. Rabbis undergo a very formal training and do not receive “authority” until they turned 30 years old which is when Jesus began his ministry.
[17] Jesus’ priesthood was not of the order of Levi but of the order of Melchizedek: a priesthood handed down from Father to Son.
[18] Either the apostle Andrew the Canaanite or his brother Jude (Thaddeus)
[19] Jesus’ use of “My hour” points Mary to His suffering and death in 3 years time but in conjunction to the problem of wine by turning the water into wine it is half way to His future turning of wine into His blood thus completing the parallel to Moses first miracle of turning water into blood.
[20] Just because our senses cannot perceive something, it doesn’t mean that it does not exist. God, angels, and demons exist and are at war.
[21] Each commandment can be expressed as a value statement. They are in priority sequence.
[22] (Mt 8:5-13) Jesus was amazed and said to those following him, “Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith.
[23] (Mt 8:1-4, Mk 1:40-45, Lk 5:12-14) Jesus isn't defiled by lepers, lepers are made clean.
[24] (Mt 9:1-8, Mk 2:1-12, Lk 5:17-26) Jesus shows that the Son of Man is the Son of God as He has the power to forgive sins.
[25] (Mt 14:13-21, Mk 6:30-44) Both a foreshadowing of the Eucharist and a fulfillment of God's supplying manna in the desert.
[26] (Mt 14:22-33, Mk 6:4-52, Jn 6:16-21) Only God can control Nature.
[27] (Jn 11:1-45) Only God can raise the Dead.
[28] (Mt 20:29-34, Mk 10:46-52, Lk 18:35-43) Bartimaeus a blind man, recognizes Jesus as the Messiah, the Son of David.
[29] (Mt 21:18-22. Mk 11:12-14) Prophetical action: A condemnation of the Jewish rulers.
[30] (Lk 22:50-51) Proof that no one takes His life.
[31] (Jn 21-4-11) A reference to the 154 sedarim in the Torah. Jesus is the Torah.
[32] It says in three of the Gospels that Jesus was anticipating celebrating the Seder with the apostles. There was only one Seder celebrated during Holy Week before Jesus died and that was on the Essene calendar on Tuesday evening.
[33] The Essene’s were not allowed to offer animal sacrifice in the temple. So the Seder celebration did not have a sacrificial lamb (although they probably had lamb).
[34] The Seder Meal was both the sacrificial meal for the Paschal Lamb and was also a Todah thanksgiving sacrifice of bread and wine in thanksgiving for the deliverance that would be provided by the blood from the Lamb.
[35] Struct with at least 125 blows with a three-strap flagellum with imbedded lead.
[36] There is still in Jerusalem the cistern that was used as a common prison.
[37] The patibulum was the horizontal cross piece. The vertical piece, the stipes, was secured into the ground; so, holes didn’t need to be dug for every execution.
[38] Bernice was the woman who was cured of a hemorrhage by touching the hem of Jesus’ garment. see the Acts of Pilate Chapter VII)
[39] Just as Saul’s life changing experience on the road to Damascus caused his name to be changed to Paul. Bernice’s action was met not with instant death (for touching a condemned prisoner) but with an exclamation of “Vera icona”, “true image” by the centurion: thus Bernice became Veronica
[40] “YHVH” is the Hebrew equivalent of “INRI” that we have on top of every crucifix. YHVH is the name of God! It is also the fulfillment of John 8:28 "When you have lifted up (crucified) the son of Man you will realize that "I AM"! Now, you know the real reason the Jewish leaders wanted Pilate to change it.
[41] Jesus speaks in Hebrew so that those present will understand that He is referring to what we now know as Psalm 22. He is letting them know that He is about to fulfill that Psalm by providing the deliverence that will be told to all generations: the deliverence from sin accomplished throuh His crucifixion.
[42] "In order to fulfill Scripture" Jesus says "I thirst". Jesus needs to finish the Last Supper in order to fulfill the Feast of Unleavened Bread by completing the Seder Meal; during which He and the apostles left before consuming the 4th Cup and proclaiming the Nirtzah.
[43] "It is finished" is the proclamation of the Nirtzah and also what the priest says when the killing blow has been struck. Jesus' last four statements come within minutes of each other. They are accompanied with excruciating pain because His lungs were so full of fluid that He has to pull himself up with dislocated shoulders and right elbow, causing incredible pain in His shoulders, elbow, and bruised ribs, to expand his lungs in order to expell enough air to make his vocal cords work. In addition the movement of his mouth causes the reoccurance of the lanciating pain from the thorn in the trigiminal nerve.
[44] The Torah, the first five books of the Bible, is the Word of God. It was venerated as such and was read three times a week in the synagogues through out the Holy Land. There are 154 sedarim (verses) in the Torah which is equal to the 153 fish brought in by the apostles in the boat plus the fish that was already on the fire.
[45] "The Blessed Virgin Mary did not die; She ascended to Heaven with Her body and soul" -Message from five year old Gilles Bouhours given to Pope Pius XII during a special private audience May 15th, 1950 exactly three months prior to Pius XII issuing the dogma of the Assumption
[46] Message of Monday, October 12th 1981: Mary responded to a question; "Did you go to Heaven before or after death?" By saying "I went to heaven before death."
[47] In the House of David none of David’s descendants were monogamous therefore the Queen was the “Queen Mother”, the Mother of the King. She was the woman with the most influence over the King and she had a throne beside the throne of the King.
[48] The Prayer of St. Gertrude is one of the most famous of the prayers for souls in purgatory. St. Gertrude the Great was a Benedictine nun and mystic who lived in the 13th century. According to tradition, our Lord promised her that 1000 souls would be released from purgatory each time it is said devoutly.
