Following a painful separation from my wife, I found myself on the street with only a small suitcase as my luggage. I could see my two little girls, four and six years old every weekend. With a job of 40 hours/week, I could support myself and my daughters in addition to paying a pension for the one who had rejected me. The pain of separation following my conversion never left me. The breakdown of my family was close to my heart and sadness followed me like a shadow.
A generous friend who hosted me had lent me for a time his boy's small room in the house in a small suburb of the city where he lived.
I had asked for a sign
During a visit to Father Guy-Marie Ménard (Jesuit) at the "Gésu" in Montreal, I bought a small prayer sheet of the Flame of Love with small booklets of 32 and 64 pages that he had at the store. These documents were copies of the booklets that existed at the Éditions du Parvis in Switzerland that Father Ménard had printed in large quantities. After reading and meditating on the messages of the Flame of Love, I stopped at a sentence of the Blessed Virgin Mary of May 19, 1963:
“I the Beautiful Raw of Dawn, I will Blind Satan"
"In this terrible turmoil currently brewing up, you will see the brightness of my Flame of Love illuminating Heaven and earth by the effusion of its effect of grace I am passing on to souls in this dark night."
As a child asks his mother, I had asked the Virgin Mary if I could see this Flame of Love in heaven. A few days later, the events that followed responded to my request.
