CARDINAL AND GROUP OF BISHOPS APPROVE DRAMATIC MESSAGES FROM MYSTIC IN
HUNGARY WHO SPOKE ABOUT THE WAR AGAINST SATAN
Apparitions to Elizabeth Kindelmann of Budapest have the backing of
Cardinal Péter Erdö, the primate of Hungary and president of the Council
of Episcopal Conference in Europe, and at least six Latin American
bishops. Now known as the
Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary messages, they began three
days before the feast of Mount Carmel on July 13, 1960, when Elizabeth had
what she described in her diary as "a wonderful spiritual
illumination, which lasted three days from morning to night."
She was in her fifties when, soon after the
"illumination," Jesus and Mary purportedly began to speak to
So she states in this diary that received the Cardinal's
imprimatur, along with that of her local ordinary, unusually strong
approvals from a Church that's famously cautious in accepting such
"Renounce yourself, for we have a
great mission for you,"
was the specific call that Elizabeth heard. "You'll
only be able to do it if you completely renounce yourself. You are free to
choose. You will accomplish it only if you want."
"Take this Flame... It's the Flame of
Love of my love," said
the Blessed Mother. "Ignite your
own heart with it and pass it on to others!"
"This Flame full of blessings
springing from my Immaculate Heart and that I am giving you must go from
heart to heart," added
Mary, allegedly. "It will be the
Great Miracle of light blinding Satan. It is the fire of love and concord.
I obtained this grace on your behalf from the Eternal Father by virtue of
the five Blessed Wounds of my Divine Son."
It was the contention of this Hungarian mystic that the Lord told
her whoever fasts on Mondays "with
bread and water while referring to the Flame of Love of the Immaculate
Heart of Mary delivers the soul of a priest from purgatory. Also, he who
follows that prescription will receive the grace, during the octave
following of his death, to be delivered from purgatory by My mother."
Born in 1913 to a Protestant father and a Catholic mother,
Elizabeth had 12 brothers and sisters, all twins but for her, and she was
the only one to reach adulthood. Her
life was an incredible struggle through a labyrinth of ill health and
poverty, often working as a maid and able to afford but one meal a day.
It was in middle age that she became a seer and mystic (for there
also seemed to be stigmata), and her messages often focus on devotion and
fighting the devil. When a person
attends a Holy Mass that is not part of the formal obligation, she was
told by Mary, that person "radiates to such a degree that, during
that time, Satan is blinded and the plenitude of my graces is transmitted
to the soul for which you offer the Holy Mass."
These and other messages, as well as the approvals and a short
background are included in booklets dispensed by The
Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary
that mission has now led to a Flame of Love movement that has spread
through several countries in Latin America, the United States, Canada,
Europe, Africa and Asia as a non-profit organization seeking the
"salvation of souls," in the words of Father Gabriel Róna,
S.J., who has devoted his energies to the translation of Elizabeth's
Among other of the messages: During Adoration, Elizabeth once said that she was
told if there is a spirit of atonement during that visit to the Blessed
Sacrament, the devil loses his power for as long as that Adoration lasts.
The Blessed Mother also allegedly requested vigils for souls in
purgatory and said that every
time three Hail Mary's are
recited in her honor by calling upon the Flame of Love, a soul is released
from purgatory. During the
month of November, ten souls will be released with only one Hail Mary
prayed in honor of Our Lady's Flame of Love.
When priests fast on Mondays, "innumerable souls" are
delivered during the Consecration, the Blessed Mother told Elizabeth.
"Timid and passive" clerics, the Lord Jesus allegedly
told this seer, must abandon their reserve. "They
must not remain idle, nor keep people away from the Flame of Love of the
Immaculate Heart of My Mother."
is the Flame of Love?" Elizabeth once asked.
"My mother's Flame of Love is for you what Noah's ark was for
the Virgin: "The
Flame of Love of My Immaculate Heart is Jesus Christ Himself."
In addition to Cardinal Erdö, the seer drew the support of a
second cardinal, Archbishop Bernardino Echeverría Ruiz, of Guayaquil. The
other bishops included prelates from Acapulco, Celaya, Tuxila, Hermosillo,
Mexico City, and Durango. After requesting approval of the global Church
for the organization based on Flame of Love, Cardinal Ruiz was sent a
letter from the Vatican's J. Francis Stafford, president of the Pontifical
Council for the laity, encouraging him "to take every measure for the
association to give abundant fruits among its members" and inviting
him "to continue with the tender task of spiritual
"Jolts" were coming to the earth, Elizabeth said she was
told (by the Lord), jolts that will "give rise to a new world by the
power of faith." The earth will be renewed, "for never has such
a flow of grace ever been given since the Word became Flesh," she
said she heard. This renewing
of the world will be tested by suffering and take place through the
imploring force of the Virgin, the seer added.
"Know that the earth is like nature before a storm,"
Elizabeth, who died in 1985, says she was told. "It can also be
compared to a volcano when it suddenly awakens, smothers, kills, and
blinds everyone with the infernal smoke sprouting up and its falling
ashes, whose seism destroys everything around. The deadly ashes full of
sulfur want to blemish human souls created in the image of God."
But the flame of the Blessed Mother is about to ignite, Mary told
Elizabeth, blinding Satan and freeing mankind from the "smoking
lava" of hatred.
"The elect souls will have to fight
the Prince of Darkness," Mary
will be a frightening storm -- no, not a storm, but a hurricane
devastating everything. He
even wants to destroy the faith and confidence of the elect. I will always
be beside you in the storm that is now brewing.
I am your Mother. I can
help you and I want to! You
will see everywhere the light of my Flame of Love sprouting out like a
flash of lightning illuminating heaven and earth, and with which I will
inflame even the dark and languid souls.
But what sorrow it is for me to have to watch so many of my
children throw themselves in hell!"
There will be persecution and the persecutors, warned Mary, will be
the "cowards" who "fear for their well-being, those who
know everything better than others."
They would attack as Herod once attacked, the Blessed Mother
Mary concluded, "the Arm of my
Divine Son is ready to strike. I can barely hold it back. Help me! If you
invoke my Flame of Love, we can save the world together."
Her voice, said Elizabeth, was "full of majesty, power, and
firmness" when she spoke of coming events. "I cannot convey with
words the inexpressible astonishment and the wonder with which I heard
that. After a few minutes of silence, she spoke in quite another tone, her
usual and maternal tone of soft tenderness: 'Fear
not, have confidence in my power as a mother.'"
Lord Jesus Christ also taught Elizabeth a new prayer, and He invited her
to propagate it, since He considers it to be a powerful means to blind
O my Jesus, may our feet journey together,
may our hands gather in unity,
may our hearts beat to the same rhythm,
may our souls be in harmony,
may our thoughts be in unison,
may our ears listen to the silence together,
may our glances melt in one another,
and may our lips beg Our Heavenly Father,
together, to obtain Mercy.
Through the messenger of Her Flame of Love, the Blessed Virgin Mary
is asking to make known to the world a new prayer. She said to Elizabeth:
on, any time you pray to Me, add the following request:
Mother of God, spread the effect of grace of Thy Flame of Love over all of
humanity, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
With this prayer, you will blind Satan.”
The Virgin Mary also requests that the Hail Mary be recited as follows:
“Hail Mary, full of Grace, the Lord is with Thee, blessed are Thou among
women, and blessed is the fruit of Thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of
God, 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.”
Lady also promised:
"When someone does Adoration in a spirit of atonement or pays a
visit to the Blessed
Sacrament, as long as it lasts, Satan loses his power on the parish
souls. Blinded, he
ceases to reign on souls."
"If you are in a state of grace and attend a holy Mass which is
not an obligation for you, then the
Flame of Love of My Heart radiates to such a degree that, during that
time, Satan is blinded and the
plentitude of my graces is transmitted to the soul for which you
offer the Holy Mass."
"Satan foams with rate and still carries out an even more bitter
fight with its usual torments, since
he feels the impending coming of his blindness."
June 6, 2009, Cardinal Peter Erdö gave his Imprimatur
number 494-4/2009 to the original Hungarian Spiritual
Diary authorizing the publication of the messages given by the Lord Jesus
and the Blessed Virgin Mary to Elizabeth Kindelmann.
The preface of the book was written by Cardinal Bernardino Echeverría
Ruiz. Several letters of approval and encouragement from different bishops
are published at the beginning of the Diary.
The Flame of Love contains a
summary of the powerful, Church-approved
messages from Jesus and Mary to Hungarian seer/stigmatist
Elizabeth Kindelmann, who won
approval of a cardinal and many bishops. Here the Lord
and Mary speak about Satan, how to blind him, the power of
potency of the Precious Blood, the most efficacious ways to pray, saving
in purgatory, the great troubles facing the world,
future events, and the
mystery of the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary from an
obscure mystic who died in 1985.
