Priests and Lay Faithful United

(I am going at a frenetic pace for the next few days, so things will be spotty here until Friday or Saturday. I speak in the St. Louis area tonight. It is a delight, for I will be introduced by my dear old friend, Judge Steve McGlynn. It is the first time I have been introduced by someone who has known me for decades. Next Monday will be the very big meeting in Louisiana, where I will speak at an event Kitty Cleveland originally put together for Mark Mallett. We will speak in tandem that evening. I will try to keep an eye on comments over these next few days, but it will be catch as catch can. Check the link of Upcoming Events at the top for details on both.

In the spirit of what is happening this week, I publish this marvelous piece by Anthony Mullen, National Director of the Flame of Love Movement. As times change, we will grow together in community and in mutual support with our Priests, Pastors, and Religious in building each other up rather than tearing each other down. Mullen talks about some of the necessary framework for making this fruitful. -CJ)

Overcoming the Storm of Satan With God’s Special Graces

Since at least 1854, God has been preparing His Church and people for the height of the Storm of Satan.  Satan through sly machinations continues his mission to banish God’s Church from the earth, especially by destroying the priesthood and families, and setting the secular world completely against God’s Church and His Commandments.  Satan has succeeded in his plan to the point that in 2015, the majority of people now call evil good, and good is called evil, and the family and the priesthood are under attack like no time in history.  It is extremely important now for all priests and lay faithful to unite to pray and do penance TOGETHER to overcome what St. John Paul II has called the “final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, between the Gospel and the anti-Gospel.”

Let us listen to three of the most compelling and credible of the many warnings which God and His Mother have given to us as we quickly approach the upcoming Year of Mercy…for The Lord stated to St. Faustina that if people do not accept His Divine Mercy than they would have to choose His Divine Justice.

Our Lady stated at Akita Japan (declared to be supernatural in origin): “As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the Deluge (Noah), such as one never seen before…The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see Cardinals against Cardinals, Bishops against Bishops…Pray very much the prayers of the Rosary.  I alone am able to save you from the calamities which approach.”

Our Lady stated to Elizabeth Kindelmann (Budapest, Hungary and approved by the Bishop, Cardinal  Peter Erdo, President of the European Bishops’ Conferences, who exhorts all to know this Message):  “My little one, the elect will have to fight against the Prince of Darkness. It will be a terrible storm. Rather, it will be a hurricane, which will want to destroy the Faith and confidence of even the elect. In this terrible turmoil, which is brewing, you will see the brightness of my Flame of Love illuminating Heaven and earth by the effusion of its effect of Grace, which I am passing on to souls in this dark night.”

Our Lady stated to Blessed Elena Aiello (approved as having nothing against Faith and Morals in her veneration process and further buttressed by her receiving the stigmata): “Listen attentively, and make known all that I tell you, because men in spite of repeated warnings, are not returning to God. They refuse Grace and are not listening to my voice.  You must have no doubt about what I am making known to you, because my words are very clear and you must transmit them to all.

“Dark and frightful days are approaching!  Mankind is obscured by a thick fog, as a result of many grievous sins which are now covering the whole world.  Today, more than ever, men are resisting calls from Heaven, and are blaspheming God while wallowing in the mire of sin…Tremendous will be the upheaval of the whole world, because men as at the time of the Deluge (Noah), have lost God’s way and are ruled by the spirit of satan.

“Priests must unite in prayer and penance.  They must hasten to spread the devotion to the Two Hearts. The hour of my Triumph is close at hand.  The Victory will be accomplished through the Love and Mercy of the Heart of my Son and of my Immaculate Heart, the Meadiatrix between men and God.  By accepting this invitation, and by uniting their tears to those of my Sorrowful Heart, priests and religious will obtain great graces for the salvation of poor sinners.

“Launch forth into the world a Message to make known to all that the scourge is near at hand…To help me in this, I ask that the prayer (of) Maternal Refuge be spread as a most useful means to obtain Graces and the salvation of poor sinners.  Say (this prayer) often with your arms crossed: “Queen of the Universe, Mediatrix of men to God, Refuge of all our hopes, have mercy on us”…

“How can the world be saved from the disaster that is about to come down upon the misleading nations, if man does not repent of his errors and failings?  The only salvation is complete repentance and return to God and a true devotion to my Immaculate Heart,  particularly in the daily recitation of my Rosary….In order to save souls, I wish that there be propagated in the world the Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.”

So,  God has implanted within many faithful Catholics and understanding that the time of Mercy is NOW quickly rushing into His Justice and the last warnings will now be made publicly evident before the whole world, so that all must choose between God and Satan.  God can no longer allow so many of His children to move toward the precipice of Hell without doing all He can within His Divine Power to prevent this (without violating our free will).  God after giving us the knowledge of His Divine Mercy through St. Faustina, now gives us an “Extraordinary Grace” through Elizabeth Kindelmann in order to CEMENT this Divine Mercy (the Compassion of Divine Love) in the heart and soul of each of His children who desire complete protection…and then perfection….of their Faith, Hope and Love.  God has named this Grace “the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary” and gave it first to a poor, uneducated lay woman and mother of 6 children in Budapest, Hungary by the name of Elizabeth Kindelmann (please go to and to learn more and see the full Church approval).  God urges us to accept and spread this Grace to every single person!

Here is what our Lord Jesus Christ stated to Elizabeth Kindelmann about this Grace for His Church and the world: “I could compare this torrential flood (of Grace) to the first Pentecost. It will submerge the earth by the power of the Holy Spirit.  All mankind will take heed at the time of the Great Miracle…These jolts will give rise to a new world by the power of Faith.  Trust, confirmed by Faith, will take root in souls and the face of the earth will be renewed.  For never has such a flow of Grace been given since the Word was made Flesh (which includes the Death and Resurrection of Christ and the establishment of the Church and the Sacraments). The renewing of the earth, tested by suffering, will take place through the power and the imploring force of the Blessed Virgin Mary.”

So, what must Priests and lay leaders do?  Now more than ever, we must do, we must act!  Here is God’s Plan given to His Church, each part of which has been approved and blessed by the Popes and the Bishops in union with him:

–Be in a state of Grace by frequently (every two weeks or sooner) going to the Sacrament of Confession!  Priests, encourage the faithful by your own example!  All must spend more time in the Confessional!  We should examine our conscience every night.

–Go to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass as often as your duty permits and make a weekly Holy Hour.  Yes, we need to change our priorities and put Worship and Adoration first in our lives each day before the internet and television!  Priests should encourage the laity by making a Holy Hour together with the Parish members! They will come in droves to imitate holy Priests!

–Pray the Rosary slowly and meditatively each and every day…no excuses!  This is THE weapon that causes Grace to flow to us from our Mother, the Mediatrix of all Grace, in order to increase our love for the Most Blessed Sacrament and to pursue our duty of holiness and the transforming union.

–Make your formal Consecration to Jesus through Mary (or renew it if you have already made it).  Go to to obtain one complimentary copy (or very low cost multiple copies for families or groups). Wear your Brown Scapular as a sign to yourself and others that you are consecrated (set aside in a special way for God) and that you publicly and with great joy declare that you seek to be a true child of God and His Commandments.

Learn, desire and accept the Grace of the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary given by God precisely for these times to protect your Faith from the coming attacks and the despair caused by the many sufferings inflicted by Satan, and to perfect your Faith so you may imitate Jesus by taking His Mother as your Mother and to participate in the most Extraordinary Grace and Gift of God in 2000 years!

Despair will be rampant as the sufferings of satan now publicly unfold world wide!  Let us remember our Lord’s words to Peter: “Simon, do you love Me?” “Yes, Lord.” Then let us ACT as Peter did and show our love!  Let us not be the unwise virgins who knew the hour was at hand, but did not seek for the oil.  The Rosary, the Consecration and the Flame of Love Grace are the oil to light the Divine Fire of the Most Blessed Sacrament within our hearts and souls to drive out ALL fear and uncertainty and to draw us into the New Ark, the Immaculate Heart of Mary united perfectly with the Sacred Heart of Jesus!  Be not afraid, we are Torchbearers of the King and Queen of the Universe!  True Children trust and imitate model Parents!

Priests and Lay Faithful of Jesus Christ…once again let us listen….Do you love Me? Yes, Lord….you know that I love You…..then feed My sheep!

He has received prophetic visitation all his life, which he has vetted through a trio of priests over the last 20 years, and now speaks publicly about on this site. Yet he emphasizes that we find God most surely through the ordinary, doing the little things we should with faith and fidelity. Hence the name, The Next Right Step. The visitations inform his work, but are not the focus of it. He lives in the Archdiocese of Denver in the United States.

    Thank you, Mr. Mullen–by the way—I watched your series on EWTN–it was very good—I was thinking of getting a bunch of brown scapulars and having them blessed so that I could distribute them when people might want them later—is that acceptable, or does each person have to have them individually blessed by a priest?


    • Monica Joseph of the Blessed Sacrament, OCDS says:

      Kim, my understanding has always been each person is individually enrolled (maybe as a group at one time, but there in person to make responses) by a priest. Here is some information, and there is more available on the web.🙂


      • Pam Nicholson says:

        Oh, yes, very good info about the scapular society. I have been enrolled in this via Our Lady of Fatima and the Brown Scapular, also through the preparation for consecration to the Two Hearts. Thanks for reminding me. I had this done so long ago, so I forgot this procedure. It is always good to get folks to seeing what is entailed in this scapular devotion. It is a very holy devotion. God bless for the info. pam, from NJ.

        Thanks Monica Joseph!


  2. Steve says:

    Wait a minute!!! David and I have both known you FAR LONGER than Steve McGlynn and we introduced you last month! Just kidding, I know what you mean! I continue to pray for you!


  3. Mary Anne says:

    Do not be silent or afraid to make this known. Know it, do it and offer it to everyone.


  4. Rosalie Dancause says:

    I do wish I could get a transcript of what both you and Mark Mallett are going to say in St. Louis. Regrettably I can’t get there as I’m scheduled for surgery for cancer on Thursday the 24th in Virginia, and I’m going nuts trying to do even half the things I need to have done before I’m out of action for a while. Your prayers appreciated.

      I have asked the Lord to send St. Joseph to watch over you and help make you into a profound sign of hope for all, Rosalie.

      Mark and I will be speaking in Louisiana Monday – and there will be videos made of it.

      Focus Worldwide Network is taping an event with both Charlie and Mark in Covington on Sept. 28. If you want a copy it will be available for free on Vimeo or you can order a dvd from Focus Worldwide.


  5. Chris says:

    Charlie, I am so excited about your visit to Louisiana. Also, it is a very special grace to be bringing with me Val Schaff, my friend who I asked you and the NRS family to pray for during the summer. He is being called MIracle Man because he drowned, had no brain activity, started recovering and was told he would be completely paralyzed. Last night he WALKED into the church with me to see Mark Mallett. Thank you Saint Ann, Charlie and our NRS family.

      Chris: Wow!! I remember praying for Val and you saying he had drowned and had no brain activity. I am convinced Our Lord does these miracles to demonstrate to the medical community (whoever sees or works with this person) that even with all they know, only He controls life and death. Praise God for Val’s recovery!!!
      God bless.


  6. Mr. Charlie,

    When did our Lord give Ms. kindelman the message? Was it recently?

    God Bless


  7. JoyInTheLord says:

    Thank you for this wonderful piece. Full of practical advise and sound exhortation!


  8. NancyA says:

    Its’ been a wonderful experience walking through streets in Philadelphia, around the Convention Center where the World Meeting of Families is being held, seeing many, many priests and sisters walking around the area, also. What a cool experience, and very joyful, too!

    Thank you Mr. Mullen, this is beautiful testament and call to holiness. We must be like little children listening intently to the beautiful words of Our Lady, our mother. She tells us all the things she knows we need to hear to decide to grow closer to God each day. And, she is so tender and loving in her words, but in her blessed messages for mankind there is that warning that challenges man’s free will decision to be little children of God or something else. We are so small, but, we can be her little soldiers, like little living crosses of holiness as we live life as God has asked us with His holy commandments in our little hearts, hoping that we will serve the Lord the next day in any way He asks us. We all can be little flames with our words and our actions. Words can be beautiful, but, actions surely can unite us in our resolve to be what God has asked us to be. God bless you for this, and may you be all the Lord intends for you everyday, as best as you can. pam, from NJ.

    Hello All, I have an off topic question to ask and I am really hoping someone can point me in the right direction. A while back here there was a discussion about Yoga and Martial Arts. Charlie mentioned a document published by the Catholic Church which says it is OK to do Martial Arts but not Yoga. I need to read this document because I am a Martial Artist and just heard it is not OK for Catholics to do Tai Chi (which I have done for over 20 yrs. It is taught at my dojo as a way to make your body movement better and not as a spiritual thing). So I am really confused about what is permitted and not permitted. If anyone can point me to that document I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks and God Bless!


    • charliej373 says:

      You might try this book by Fr. Mitch Pacwa, Gabrielle and this document from the Vatican. I know many forms of martial arts are not condemned, so long as they do not incorporate an eastern mysticism into the physical training. But you would have to look further to answer your specific question. I hope this gives you a start.


    • Pam Nicholson says:

      Hi! You are a catholic woman? A great series was done by Johnnette Benkovic, host of Women of Grace, a lay ministry for catholic women who want to grow in their faith. Just go onto the EWTN website and click onto women of grace to get onto the website for the show, and the programs on the new age deception, both what the church teaches and what is out there in the world. Many blessings. pam, from NJ.


  12. These are words directly from God. There is love, and there is urgency in those words. There are several powerful prayer / devotional suggestions. I would add another suggestion: listen to the still voice within you as God might speak directly to you and ask that you offer up another prayer altogether. All of us are called to save souls, but I believe the call might differ from one to the other. So, even as we pray a specific prayer or novena, we need to keep listening out in case He calls out to us to change “prayer paths”.

  13. There needs to be much more emphasis on the Divine Mercy Message and Devotion … especially, praying the Chaplet of Divine Mercy and having and venerating a blessed Image of Divine Mercy. And as always, making sure that all of us understand and practice “the Three Degrees of Mercy” 1. Deeds of Mercy 2. Words of Mercy and 3. Prayers for Mercy. – Deed, Word, Prayer … The Three Degrees of Mercy.

    Our Holy Father does a great job at encouraging the deeds and even the words … let all of use beg God to give him the insight and courage to boldly teach those who listen to him to PRAY the Chaplet of Divine Mercy … The Flame of Love!

    Now is the opportunity to get prepared.
