Today is Sunday, the Day of the Lord. The kitchen is filled with the aroma of pork chops cooking on the stove. They will accompany apples, red onions, and pickled cabbage, along with German potato salad for our Sunday dinner. We are feeling the after-glow of an anointed Sunday Sacrament of the Mass at St. James the Apostle Catholic Church in Fremont, California. Fr. Anthony Vazhappilly, the anointed pastor, called down the Holy Spirit in his prayers and in his preaching. The God the Father choir filled us with joy in their singing. We passed by the beautiful white roses as we walked to the church smelling the fragrance of heaven. We thanked Our Lady of Vailankanni at the Shrine next to the church after mass.
This past Sunday and Monday, we attended the very holy Flame of Love conference in Pittsburg, California at the Church of the Good Shepherd. It was years ago, at a retreat outside another Pittsburg, this one in Pennsylvania, that the young men and women attending the retreat received a new outpouring of the Holy Spirit. It was the Feast of St. Padre Pio. His statue and relics were displayed on the altar along with the image of The Divine Mercy and the image of The Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Fr. James Blunt, SOLT, an anointed priest from Georgia, blessed us with his anointed preaching and prayers of healing. Mark Mallett, the musician and evangelist from Canada, graced us with his anointed music and teaching. Fr. Jim Sullivan, the author and Catholic priest, heard confessions and spoke about Marian apparitions and the scandal.
The conference was organized by the Flame of Love prayer group, based on the teaching recorded in, “The Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary – The Spiritual Diary” of Elizabeth Kindelmann, during 1961-1983, in her home in Budapest, Hungary. In a nutshell, Satan is intensifying his efforts to ruin souls. His eternal enemy is the Most Blessed Virgin Mary. She obtained from God the Father, by the merits of the Passion of her Son, Jesus Christ, an outpouring of graces so great as have not existed since the Word became Flesh and dwelt among us. She will blind Satan with the Flame of Love, which will burst forth from her Immaculate Heart. For more information, consult this website: http://www.flameoflove.us

May the Lord, in His abundant mercy, bless us. May the intentions of the Blessed Mother prevail. May God and His angels and all His saints help us to transform this earth. Amen. Jesus, I trust in You. Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, and spread the effect of the grace of the Flame of Love over all humanity, now and at the time of our death. Amen.
