(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 www.theflameoflove.org and www.flameoflove.us 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 Myconsecration.org 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!
