Dear Friends 💗,
Praise be to Jesus!
I watched the Internet conference on November 11, 2023 (John Sullivan III), and it was a very good experience to see the Flame of Love Movement in Canada being discussed.
You mentioned that you would like to know what is happening in our cities about the Flame of Love in Canada. I can tell you that I pray the Flame of Love Rosary with my family and friends.
What you will find cheerful is the story of the Flame of Love and 40 Days for Life in Hamilton. We had our first 40 Days for Life campaign in Lent of 2022. I was petrified of doing Pro-life activism, in public and in my neighborhood, where the Abortion Clinic is located at the McMaster Hospital and University. But I had a great desire to spread the Flame of Love and I knew if I stand with the picture of the Flame of Love, I will be safe because Our Lady will blind Satan.
And so it was. The attendance of volunteers was up and down, but Our Lady and I were there every day for the 4 campaigns we've done thus far.
On October 2, 2021 we started a Rosary Club. I was teaching my children Michael and Grace, and their friends, how to pray the Rosary. I used the Flame of Love Holy cards to teach them the new Hail Mary prayer. They learnt it very quickly. Even some of the parents prayed with us, both in English and in Spanish.
Once my children learnt the Flame of Love Hail Mary, there was no going back. Grace drew the picture of the Three Hearts and Our Lady interceding as we pray with our friends and family.
While doing 40 Days for Life, I also got to strike up conversations with many people about the image. Some people already have seen something about it on the Internet, in the English and Spanish speaking world. I always carry the Holy cards in English, Spanish and Polish so that I can teach this new powerful Hail Mary to those who are interested. Many have never seen this image before.
Also, I'm attaching a photo of Rev. Steven Szakaczki from St. Aidan Church in Scarborough, Ontario. We met him on our way to the March for Life. He told me he's Hungarian, so I told him about the Flame of Love and gave him a booklet.
I truly believe in the power of the Flame of Love. When I was 16 years old, I read a little booklet in Polish and prayed the Flame of Love Hail Mary. In that moment, as I was praying it, the Flame of Love jumped from the picture onto me. I felt the supernatural warmth and love, for the first time in my life. From that day on I started to like Mary. Before I had a strong aversion to Her.
Thank you for all you do to help Our Lady,
Eva Van Vollenhoven
