Empty yourself of all attachments so that you may be filled with the Holy Spirit anew and be my witness…

Acts 1:8 But you will receive power when the holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.

“Little child, be littler still. Empty yourself of all attachments so that you may be filled with the Holy Spirit anew and be my witness. A day is coming when the Spirit will be made manifest and all those who have made room for him will be filled as on the day of Pentecost. Child, this will be a great day of evangelization and many, many souls will be converted. But be aware that the thief and the liar will not sit idly by while souls he counted as his own are snatched out of his grip. A great battle for souls is underway and will intensify. Do not let up on your prayers, but make way for the Holy Spirit, who has great need of little souls to do his work.”

Come Holy Spirit. May the fire of your love fall upon the earth and turn the hearts of all back to you. Help me to let go of everything that prevents you from filling me completely. Here I am Lord. Use me as you wish to accomplish your designs upon the world. Amen.

  1. i have sent to Intercessors of the Lamb for the manual on Empowerment of the Holy Spirit. It is also on e-shop of the website. i have such a strong sense that we must truly prepare for this Pentecost. We are a small population in a huge state here in Australia, but right down south there is a small community called Holy Spirit of Freedom. My friend is very involved and has said that on the evening of Easter Sunday they felt they must truly prepare for Pentecost.
    several of us here in the city feel the same.
    YEs, the battle is certainly intense and intensifying. in the last two days i have experienced what i call Divine Appointments. two wonderful people i was able to talk to . Please pray for Helen as she is trying to move her 3 children to the city for education and other needs. She is very alone for various circumstances and has certainly had her share of trials. She is a lapsed Catholic.
    Another wonderful lady i met in the park{i have not been to that park in months and months} is a wonderful Christian but has been really suffering attack.

    Dear Lord, please draw us all together in prayer for each other on the blog and those the Lord places in our path. Pour out abundant graces on us all.

  2. i must share another wonderful story. My older friend who was my daughters Brownies leader 14 years ago still keeps in contact. She has been praying for her son and his family for years regarding Mass and God.
    10 months ago he, his wife and 2 young girls went on an adventure sailing up through Indonesian islands and north east of Australia. He is such an adventurous type.
    several weeks ago they hit a dreadful storm and became shipwrecked on a LITTLE island called Mog-Mog. It is 800 metres in lenghth and 200 metres in width. !!!there are just over 2oo people on the island and they are all Catholic.!!!They all pile into the simple church each day and have been so welcoming to the shipwrecked family.
    so the family goes to church each day! They cannot speak the language but they are now trying to resurrect the boat. A young 24 Islander was helping and his hand became crushed while working on the hull. SERIOUSLY CRUSHED. they were able to give him morphine while MANY had to help lift the boat off the very badly crushed hand. My friends son it was dreadful and he felt terrible as it really looked totally broken, crushed ruined. His daughter and law had done some very intensive first aid before sailing and worked on it but things looked bad. the whole island prayed and prayed intensly including the shipwrecked family and my friend here in Australia.
    after two days she received a call to say it was healed. against ALL ODDS, it was completely healed.!!!!!
    My friend is DELIGHTED her son and family are shipwrecked there.!!!!!!amazing how God works.!
    Andrew and his family have made it in papers all over the world. The interesting thing is before being shipwrecked on Mog Mog they had visited other islands but could not wait to leave. Not good places. so fancy landing on Mog Mog.!!

  4. As I was driving to work, contemplating the last two messages,
    I was trying to synthesize them into a phrase in my heart:
    “Get ready” was what I came up with.
    I watched the video featuring Monty Judah. Insightful and enlightening. I did a google search on him, and found some site calling him a heretic. But I guess we can always find any bad or any good written about anyone.
    It is reassuring to recall that the saints wished to live during these times, such will be the heroic faith we will live get to have.
    Praised be Jesus Christ, Now and Forever!

  5. I can’t help but think that all of the world of creatures’ activities in the Divine Will make a beautiful music for the King of Kings. I imagine that the music made by the visitors to Peli’s blog –the prayers, fastings, the giving of love…– is oh, so sweet to the Lord and His Mother…!

    1. Mary Therese, I try to keep this Scripture passage in the front of my thoughts:

      Luke 17: 9 Is he grateful to that servant because he did what was
      commanded?
      10 So should it be with you. When you have done all you
      have been commanded, say, ‘We are unprofitable servants; we
      have done what we were obliged to do.'”

      Everything we can do is far less than we should do. St. Francis said at the end of his life, “Let us begin again, for up to now we have done nothing.” May God be praised in all we do. Amen.

  6. It’s getting easier to let things go. What a wonderful thing to do; purging of possessions and things that add up both mentally and physically. As people we can accumulate many things and it feels so good to let them go, and get rid of them. Really what I can put in a backpack is all I need. I am looking at everything and saying “Will this make it to the refuge?” and if it doesn’t then I am looking to get rid of it, or give it away.

    I am putting everything together that I will need to pack. My seed collection, my Bible, some small hand tools (knife, fire starter, compass, Pieta prayer book, guitar if I can carry it (we are going to need to sing and praise at the refuge houses!)

    Not much else! It is so exciting and invigorating to think this way. I also know that it’s not just physical objects but they are connected in the sense that you have to be in a certain mindset, in order to start giving up. Mental and spiritual attachments are just as or more important to start sifting through and getting rid of the chaff.

    Some serious spring cleaning!
    Peace to all.

    1. Aaron, sometimes letting go of attachments means only being ready to leave it all behind, not necessarily getting rid of everything today. You must discern what God is calling you to do of course, what is prudent for you and your family. Just wanted to clarify that.

  7. Pelianito, is it just my impression or are you getting more messages lately? Has anything changed in your experiences of receiving the messages, such as an increased feeling of urgency? I have friends who have a “feeling of urgency” in prayer.

    1. Mary-Louise, the usual number of messages is 2-3 per week. When I first started posting them in this way, I felt that pace was set by the Lord.

      As to urgency, the messages have more urgency to them for sure, and that is the urgency I feel most. The other feeling I have is that the time of all messages will come to an end, either because of disaster or a silence from heaven.

  8. Like Aaron, having been exposed to Franciscan University of Steubenville retreats with over 3000 teenagers, I believe that the Music and the Joy of the Lord is what will greatly sustain us as we move forward in these times.

    For anyone who is able to attend one of the summer conferences @ The Franciscan University of Steubenville, I would say that it is the retreat of a lifetime! Cardinal O’Connor of New York once said that if he had a child, he would send that child to this university. When I was there once, we received the Papal Blessing from Pope John Paul II.

    Some saints needed to beat their breasts with a stone, like St. Jerome, of whom a pope said that he wouldn’t be standing there in the hall of saints if it weren’t for that stone…

    And some saints, like St. Therese the “Little Flower,” did simple and beautiful acts of love in her activities throughout her days.

    We are all different and need to follow the path that is right for us, while staying in full communion with and adherence to the Magesterium of the Church–our Holy Mother on earth…

  10. Throughout my extremely busy day, I will regularly be reminded (by heaven) to say my new “embellished” Hail Mary to blind the hairy legged one. I believe I am expected to put this plea before you, my friends here, as well: http://www.theflameoflove.org/mary_prayer.html

    The prayer of the Blessed Virgin Mary

    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: “From now on, any time you pray to Me, add the following request:

    Mother of God, flood the whole humanity with the Blessings of your Flame of Love, 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, flood the whole humanity with the blessings of your Flame of Love, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.”

    Let us not forget to pray the Rosary this way. The Virgin Mary also made the following promise: “Whoever prays three Hail Mary in honour of My Flame of Love delivers a soul from Purgatory. Whoever prays one Hail Mary in honour of My Flame of Love during the month of November, delivers 10 souls from Purgatory.”

    The Blessed Virgin Mary promises that the souls that we will deliver from Purgatory by our prayer, help us from Heaven in our efforts to save souls.

    OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST AND THE VIRGIN MARY
    REVEAL THE FLAME OF LOVE OF her IMMACULATE HEART

    A precious gift from Her Immaculate Heart
    The devotion to the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary finds its origin in the revelations of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary to Elizabeth Kindelmann, a Hungarian mother of six, between the years 1961 and 1982. Elizabeth died on April 11, 1985. Through her, the Virgin Mary placed into our hands a new means: the Flame of Love of Her Immaculate Heart.

    The Blessed Virgin Mary revelations as well as those of Our Lord Jesus Christ do not apply to Hungary alone, but to the whole world through the Holy Father.

    These revelations have been transcribed by Elizabeth in her Spiritual Diary which, together with the Holy Gospels and the Teaching of the Church, is at the root of the spirituality of the Flame of Love Movement.

    The local bishop sent the Virgin Mary’s requests to the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith of the Vatican for customary review.

    While waiting for Rome’s judgment, we want to make known everywhere, both verbally and in the written form, the will of our Heavenly Mother.

    The Flame of Love and its mystery
    The Virgin Mary wants the devotion to the Flame of Love of Her Immaculate Heart to spread throughout the whole world so that the greatest number of Her children may respond to Her request. Through the Flame of Love, we are all invited to take part in the Work of Salvation by blinding Satan, source of all evil, and thus help the Lord Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary to save souls. This is what the Flame of Love wants to accomplish!

    The Virgin Mary: “This Flame of Graces coming from My Immaculate Heart must go from heart to heart. It will be the Great Miracle whose Light will blind Satan. It is the Fire of Love and of the Union. We shall fight fire with fire: the fire of hate with the Fire of Love! I obtained this Grace from the Eternal Father on your behalf by virtue of the Five Blessed Wounds of My Divine Son.”

    The Lord Jesus: “I could compare this torrential flood 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 this great miracle. Here comes the torrential flow of the Flame of Love of My Most Holy Mother. The world, darkened already by the lack of faith, will undergo formidable tremors and then people will believe!

    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 thus be renewed. For never has such a flow of grace ever been given since the Word became Flesh.

    This renewing of the earth, tested by suffering, will take place through the power and the imploring force of the Blessed Virgin!”

    The means
    We are given several means to put in effect the power of the Flame of Love:

    – Our Blessed Mother is asking us to add the following supplication to the “Hail Mary” in the usual Rosary and to make it know to the whole world: “From now on, any time you pray to Me, add the following request:

    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, flood the whole humanity with the blessings of Thy Flame of Love, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

    With this prayer, you will blind Satan.”

    The bishop asked Elizabeth: “Why should we recite the very old Ave Maria differently?” On February 2, 1982, the Lord answered: “It is exclusively thanks to the effective petitions of the Blessed Virgin that the Most Holy Trinity granted the overflowing of the Flame of Love. By it, ask in the prayer with which you greet My Most Holy Mother: “Flood the whole humanity with the blessings of your Flame of Love, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.” So that, by its action, humanity is converted.”

    The Most Blessed Virgin added: “I do not want to change the prayer by which you honour me; by this petition, I want rather to shake humanity. This is not a new prayer formula; it must be a constant petition.” (Spiritual Diary, October 1962)

    – When we take part in the Holy Sacrifice of Mass, if we are in a state of grace, the Evil one is blinded and the plenitude of the graces is transmitted to the soul for which we offer the Holy Mass. The Blessed Virgin: “If you attend a Holy Mass which is not an obligation for you, and if you are in a state of grace before God, I will spread the Flame of Love of my Heart and I will blind Satan during this time. My graces will run out abundantly on the souls for which you offer this Holy Mass. The participation in the Sacrifice of the Holy Mass increases to the highest degree the blindness of Satan.” (November 22, 1962)

    – In the accomplishment of our duties, by offering to the Lord our daily work, if we are in a state of grace, this offering will increase the blindness of Satan. “Throughout the day also, offer your labour for the glory of God! This offering, made in a state of grace, also helps to blind Satan. Live in conformity with my graces so that the blindness of Satan extends more and more and grows increasingly larger. If you make good use of the abundant graces that I bestow upon you, they will make better a multitude of souls.” (November 30, 1962)

    – “My little one, you must consider Thursdays and Fridays as two great days of special grace. These days, those who offer atonement to my divine Son will receive a great grace. During the hours of atonement, the ability of Satan weakens insofar as the atoning souls beg for the sinners…” (September 29, 1962)

    – “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.” (November 6 – 7, 1962)

    The Flame of Love and the dying
    The Blessed Virgin: “You see, My daughter, when the Flame of Love of My Heart is inflamed upon the earth, its outpouring of graces flows out to the dying as well. Satan is blinded and with the help of your fervent prayers, Satan’s fight against the dying will cease. Under the serene beam of My Flame of Love, even the most hardened sinners are converted for I do not want any soul to be lost… Make sure that not a single minute goes by during the night without prayer. As long as there is someone awake and praying in honour of My Flame of Love, I promise you that not a single dying person in their surroundings will be damned.

    The more fervently you pray, the more thoroughly will Satan be blinded, and the dying soul will find re­newed strength to decide wisely as to his/her future destiny.”

    The Flame of Love and the souls in Purgatory
    The Blessed Virgin Mary:”The one who fasts on bread and water on Mondays releases each time the soul of a priest from the place of suffering. He who practices that will receive also the grace to be released from the place of sorrows less than eight days after his death.” (Agenda of Monday)

    “The priests who observe the fasting on Mondays release during each Holy Mass they celebrate during that week, at the moment of consecration, innumerable souls from Purgatory. The religious and the laity, who observe absolute fasting on Monday, will deliver during that week, every time they receive Communion and at the time they receive the Sacred Body of the Lord, a host of souls from Purgatory.” (August 15, 1980)

    “If at anytime, you recite in my honor three Ave Maria by calling upon my Flame of Love, each time a soul will be released from Purgatory. The suffering souls must also feel the effect of grace of the Flame of Love of my motherly Heart.” (October 13, 1962)

    The pain of the memory of our sins fertilizes also the souls (August 15, 1964). Even the desire of the salvation of souls contributes to blind Satan (November 30, 1962), because the will of the soul is already love (September 15, 1962).

    “I need you all”
    The Virgin Mary: “You must strive to participate in the blinding of Satan! I need you, individually as well as collectively. Any delay must be ruled out, for Satan will be blinded to the extent of your participation…

    This is a grave responsibility. But your effort will not be in vain. If the whole world is united to Me, the soft light of My Flame of Love will then burn and set the globe aflame. Satan will be humiliated and made incapable of using his power any longer, provided this time of preparation is not indefinitely prolonged! No, do not prolong it! Do not procrastinate in response to My holy requests!”

    “My daughter, I am providing you with so powerful a grace: the burning Flame of Love from My Heart, that has never before been offered as it is now. Ever since the Word became Flesh, I have not undertaken a greater movement than the Flame of Love from My Heart who rushes to you. Till now, nothing could blind Satan as much. And it is up to you not to reject it, for this rejection would simply spell disaster.”

    The Lord Jesus: “Go beyond your limits! Think of the Three Wise Men who made a superhuman sacrifice. They surely exceeded their usual limits. Above all, the priests must do it, but the other consecrated persons as well and all the faithful…”

    The Virgin Mary: “In the tribulation that is about to begin, I will remain with you. I am your Mother. I can and will help you. Soon, you will see My Flame of Love gushing forth everywhere, illuminating the heavens, the earth, and even darkened and slumbering souls. But what sorrow it is for Me to have to watch so many of My children throw themselves into Hell!”

    The Virgin Mary: “My children, 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!”

    What the Flame of Love is
    Elizabeth once asked: “What then is the Flame of Love?”

    Jesus responded: “My Mother’s Flame of Love is for you what the Noah’s Arch was for Noah.” And the Blessed Virgin Mary added: “The Flame of Love of My Immaculate Heart is Jesus Christ Himself!”

    Let us thank the Lord for the Flame of Love from the bottom of our hearts and with great gratitude for a gift of an exceptional import, for never has such a flow of graces ever been given since the Word became Flesh, as the Virgin Mary once said to Elizabeth.
