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 54 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 praying 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 praying 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 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.”

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.”

The instruction for the fatima prayer is that it is to be said after a decade of Hail Mary's. I wonder why the fatima prayer is included at the beginning...

I apologize for taking so long to respond but the notification I got had the comment and as you posted as anonymous I could not directly respond. I had to find out which page the post was on and inexcusably that took too long.

You are exactly right. The Fatima request did not include saying the Fatima prayer as part of the introduction to the rosary. It has however been done throughout the world simply because most people got use to saying the Fatima prayer after saying the Glory Be. In theory we could remove it. But there are so many that do say it, that it is better to be perceived as erring by saying an extra prayer than erring by leaving out a prayer.

Having trouble getting to FOL prayers—anybody else? See in the comments advice on how to resolve but that is not working either?

I have been having a disagreement. I feel that the flame of love addition to the Hail Mary should be said all the time not just when saying the Flame of Love rosary. Am I right or wrong? Please help us settle this. Thank you and God Bless. Fran Roell fmproell@gmail.com

Hi I've felt the same way..for other devotions it seems strange not to say the flame of love devotion. I usually pray alone do not a debate..so I just say the addition..

Anonymous said...

I pray the Hail Mary w/ the words to be inserted, all the time I pray the Hail Mary. I'm used to it already. I pray alone coz others find it disturbing it hear me say the additional words.

I'm curious...I have prayed these prayers (last November for the first time) and I was wondering: When were these visions to Elizabeth approved by Holy Mother Church? Why is this devotion not more widely known, as are Fatima, Garabandal, Lourdes, et al?
