New post on The Divine Antidote

God Now Wills to Set You Aflame With the Divine Fire of Eternal Self Giving

by Anthony Mullen
I want to revisit a post from July 9, 2015 as a I believe it best summarizes what we are each called to accept and then spread to all with whom we come in contact.  God calls the Grace of the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of His Mother the "Greatest Grace" given to the Church and the world in 2,000 years and He declares that Mary, His Mother and our Mother, will save the world from a great coming catastrophe.
Now, we should take this both literally and figuratively, as the greatest catastrophe of a person is the failure to love as God wills, the failure to share in the Fire of Divine Self Giving.  This Grace, when accepted, nourished and corresponded to the way God desires, will cause us to finally begin to love as God loves!  Those who have been transformed by this Grace will tell you nothing, absolutely nothing, in their life of Grace has ever transformed them as this Grace has done!  The reason is that is it proceeds from the Love which God has for Mary and the Love which Mary has for God...the sharing in God's Essence, His Divine Will of Love and Mercy Itself!  God is now willing to share His Love in an even more Extraordinary Way to achieve what St. John Paul II has called "a New and Divine Holiness"; what God has called the "Divine Substitution" to Blessed Dina Belanger; and the "Mystical Incarnation" to Venerable Concepcion Cabrera de Armida; or "Living with His Divine Will" to St. Faustina Kowalska and others still being studied by the Church.  It is this Grace we must sell all to acquire!   How can we know about this Grace and not give it everything we have to accept, correspond to and spread to all?
Our Lord constantly uses this image of Fire and Flames in explaining His Love for us. He did this with Elizabeth Kindelmann to the point that He named an Extraordinary Grace: The Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary; but also told her that it is He Himself (seeking a union of wills such that He had with Mary our Mother to the degree we are disposed to receive it).
In the almost 15 years of daily or weekly encounters with Gabrielle Bossis, which our Lord explained in “He and I”, our dear Lord also uses this image of Fire frequently. He wants us to better understand His Love so we can love Him with this same Love…this divine Conflagration of Moment to Moment Intimacy, which He so desires….He so agonizingly desires!!
On April 20 of 1945, he explained to Gabrielle: “…give yourself to Love so that Love may possess you…since I long to have all of you and cherish this hope. Your love quenches My thirst. I am most demanding: you see I want My children to be wholly and utterly Mine at every moment. So, don’t withhold a thing. Don’t take anything of yourselves away. You would steal from Me if you did, because everything is Mine. If I require this of you, it is because My yearning for you is a consuming fire. And My yearning is born of My Love. Do you understand? Do you at last believe? Do you acknowledge My power to Love?”
Our Lord then explained what we need to do to draw closer: “Meditate on this need of Mine and you will call to mind that it is in your power to give Me these alms. Then remember the value of a free gift–the gift of oneself–when offered out of tenderness. What inexpressible joy will be Mine who receives (your gift). I will multiply My Blessings so that the one who receives them will be lost in wonder and gratitude. ‘What have I done to deserve this kindness of my God?’ you will ask. And I shall reply, ‘You loved Him with all your strivings and you let Him love you.'”
Our Lord then gives an amazing instruction that will resonate with those pursuing the intimacy of His Love: “Have you noticed how people talk among themselves, discussing their personal affairs? They spend so much time this way and it does them so little good. Don’t you think that If they gave themselves to Me, their Friend, I should rejoice to have My place in their thoughts and I should know how to reward their confidence (abundantly)? Don’t you think that it would create a moment by moment intimacy between them and Me, and this would be a joy for them, because close to Me their lives would lose their tension. Do you understand? It would be life together with Me, I carrying the heavier end of things. So, again I say, speak with Me, My little ones. Speak with Me. And our hearts will merge. Isn’t this the aim of My Christians?…then begin by living this heart-oneness. Seize upon every opportunity. Find every pretext….And if, in all simplicity, their love loved Me more, I should be there looking after everything in their day, and when night fell, their eyes would close again on My face. You know what it is to sleep that way–within My embrace? Would you like to learn better? Remember, it’s a question of beginning over and over again…of trying to grow….of taking great care not to be satisfied with yourself.”
Our Lord then gives the key to success as He did with Elizabeth Kindelmann: “But ponder on your poverty. Tell Me about it and My heart will be all eagerness to help you since you are so little, so weak. And when you call Me be sure to give Me the most tender names. I will recognize the voice…By yourself you are chaos. Do you fully realize this? Do you try to keep it in mind? Have you humbled yourself today in thought or deed? Not to cause you distress nor diminish your strength, but to tighten your hold on the power of God, who is only waiting for your call…Yes, I know what you want most to confide: ‘Lord, I don’t love you as I want to. Make it possible for me to love You more.’ This suffering of not loving Me enough–offer it to Me in pure reverence, straight from your heart. Offer it often. Don’t grow weary, I will heal this poor suffering of yours. Perhaps by sending one greater still, one that brings with it a piercing ecstasy such as you have never known. ‘O precious wound,’ is the cry of those who have felt it….Humble yourself to obtain it. Sacrifice yourself…Approach Love and Love will take hold of you…Oh, the power of repentance! The sacrifice that pleases Me most is a cleft and contrite heart…So, be My very little one.”
Our Lord knows we struggle badly with constantly admitting our utter weakness, sinfulness and nothingness, due to our self love, our subtle pride, so He gives us the solution: “Ask for everything through My Mother. She is so good, so attentive in caring for your souls. If only you knew! You don’t know her well enough. Give yourself to her without reserve, like her little Jesus…My little child, so dear, so dear, will you let Me live on again on earth in you?”

Ephesians 4:1-6
Brothers and sisters:
I, a prisoner for the Lord,
urge you to live in a manner worthy of the call you have received,
with all humility and gentleness, with patience,
bearing with one another through love,
striving to preserve the unity of the spirit
through the bond of peace;
one Body and one Spirit,
as y
ou were also called to the one hope of your call; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

Brothers and Sisters in Christ, I, too, am a prisoner for the Lord. But I am not bound with chains and shackles in the deep cave with all the criminals in. No, I have been a prisoner for the Lord for many a year. There are no bars on my door, I can come and go as I please, do what I need to do on my own, have my own home and a multitude of things that show us that being a prisoner for the Lord does not take away any liberties. In fact, we receive so much more!

We receive peace of mind, know that with the Lord in our hearts, he will take care of us every day until our time comes and He calls us to heaven. We are blessed every day with a multitude of blessings and graces straight from the Lord but do you see them? If not, you should try being more alert of feeling His presence.

For instance, I was doing something I NEVER do. While driving across the little bridge in our town, and was approaching the railroad tracks, I held up my phone to take a photo of the beautiful skies yesterday. When I looked back ahead, I was about 4 feet from a stopped truck. I hit my brakes and avoided him with room to spare. I know I should not have been doing this, and I never will again. It is dangerous to drive and text. I got llucky. My Lord and Savior saved me by nudging me to look straight ahead in time to stop.

I am a prisoner to tell everyone about Him. I get a lot of people who look at me like I am crazy! No, I'm not crazy, I just love our Lord with every ounce of my being! I told several people as I entered stores "Jesus Loves You! Have a Happy Day!" Some look stnned, and were speechless. Why do so many people find it strange that someone would say somethihng positive to them about the Lord? And I always left the clerks when I'd check out with "Have a blessed and beautiful day!"

This is how you can spread His love around!! Are you doing it? No? Well, be ashamed later, and start immediately by committing yourself to be a prisoner of the Lord. Do you know that this, all that I did yesterday, spreading the word that Jesus loves people, made me so happy inside. It was wonderful! A life with our Savior is a Happy Life, but not without the human elements. We have to continually look to Him for redemption, love and care.

I love Jesus and I love God so much that I cannot put it into words. I had a long-standing prayer that I gave to God nearly a year ago and it was answered last week. Praise God, Praise His Holy Name, Praise His Grace and Mercy laid upon me! 

Go back and read the scripture above. Keep it handy as a reference when you may be feeling down and need the Lord. Just call His name, He is with you and has so much to give you,   He is with you always!

Lovingly in Jesus Christ,

Peace be with you, Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I have a very personal story that I'd like to impart, and I pray that it will be an example for those who have doubts about God and a true faith relationship with Him.

I have for some time now encouraged faith to my readers using scriptures and the parables of Jesus. But I have been going through a personal experience for some time that has drawn me face to face with my own faith. It's time to practice what I preach on a very personal level.

I have DDD, Degenerative Disc Disease of the spine. I also have scoliosis where the spine twists rather than curves. I have already had a double fusion on my cervical spine, and thus I have a titanium plate in my neck where two levels were fused using a synthetic disc material that actually grows to the bone. Surgery was successful and accomplished the goal of being pain free in my neck and shoulders.

I also have had surgery on my lumbar (L3/4 and L4/5) which was fused just like the surgery in my cervical spine. The same synthetic material was used and I believe some kind of rods and screws were put in place to hold the fusion steady. I've told you before that I contracted staph and a bone marrow infection that was horrific, and subsequently was the very thing that brought me to my knees at the foot of the cross.

I am once again facing some kind of surgery on my spine. I have two levels together and one level by itself where the discs have degenerated and I am in pain every day of my life. I'm a pro. I've had problems since I was in my 20's, so I've spent most of my adult life in pain. At this point, I have had four unsuccessful epidurals for the pain. I recently underwent a CT scan and an MRI at the request of a neuro-surgeon.

Yesterday, I went to meet with the surgeon and I just knew it was going to end up with me scheduling a surgical procedure. I was dumbfounded when he sat and crossed his legs and arms and bluntly said, "there's nothing we can do to make you more comfortable." I was "you're kidding, right?" He said "no" and mentioned something about three levels, two together and then one stand-alone. I was so shocked at his very matter-of-fact disposition about this very important issue with my personal health and gave me no recommendations whatsoever that I couldn't think of the questions I should have asked. That came later after I cried in my car on the way home and began to seek God's advice.

My conversation went something like this: "Dear God, I can't believe what just happened! What am I to do? I know that you're trying to tell me something; help me to understand. God, I need some answers and right now I'm so shocked, but I know that this is Your doing! You have your plan for my life. So, it had to be Your decision for me to not have this surgery with this physician. What are you trying to tell me. Help me to understand because I feel so lost right now."

These thoughts between me and God continued until late into the early hours of morning, for my mind was racing and I could not sleep. I finally did sleep and when I awoke, I laid there thinking about my prayers for understanding and acceptance of what is happening with me.

My conclusion: God does not want me to have this surgery now or with this physician. The time is not right, and rushing around to find a spine specialist and having surgery might just curtail my plans to spend Christmas with my nearly 85 year old parents. Also, these surgeons were not the right ones. Perhaps something could go wrong that might cripple me for good. All of these things were made perfectly clear, and therefore, I am not worried about my back pain at this time. I'm resolved to use OTC medications for pain, pain patches and the like until after the holidays.

I am at peace. I have put my complete faith in God about this choice. I feel it is right, I can tell by the peace and resolve that I have.

So, I suppose I'm trying to simply impart a personal experience that went from not knowing to fully knowing because I know that God has my life plan, and he will not deviate from that plan. If I must go through this pain, then all I can say is that it brings me closer to Jesus and His Passion. He suffered a TREMENDOUS amount of pain for you and me.

I haven't been around as much lately as usual because of how I feel, pain wise. But I'm watching from the side and love and pray for your intercessions every day. God bless you all.

My faith in God is more solid, and for that, I am so very grateful.

Lovingly in Christ Jesus,

Luke 17:11-19King James Version (KJV)

11 And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.
12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off:
13 And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.
14 And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.
15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God,
16 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.
17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?
18 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.
19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.


Each time I read of the healings and good works that Jesus did in the name of his Father, God, I am still amazed. Yes, his sermons are something that I wish I could hear amidst the other people of the area. But, we have our Bibles, and with that we read, visual images come into our minds.

I have never seen a leper, and so I do not know what leprosy looks like, but it was apparently a horrible and disfiguring disease. People shunned the lepers for fear of catching the disease. Remember Princess Diana going to see the HIV patients and touching them, giving people a new view on this disease? The lepers were not so fortunate, but the ten who approached Jesus found his favor and going as he commanded, they were healed on their way.

So 1 out of 10 goes back to kiss the feet of Jesus and praises him and gives thanks for his healing. Whatever happened to the other nine?  This scripture is all about the Graces that God bestows on his children, and the thanksgiving to Him for those Graces!

This is how it seems to me, personally, today. About 1 in 10 people in America are practicing any kind of religion. And, I can say that it varies from place to place in America. For instance, I lived in West Los Angeles for several years and to this day, I can recall seeing only one church, and it was a Catholic Church. I was young and not Catholic, but it strikes me as I think of it now how little people worshipped in that part of the country.

I now live in the South where there is a church "on every corner" as the saying goes. But still, I find, there are many who do not know Jesus. They are not believers, and therefore do not believe that they can be healed if they only prayed, according to God's will.

Jesus will accept anyone who comes to him in the name of the Father. He will cleanse you of your sins, just as he cleansed the lepers 2,000 years ago. God gave Him the power, and I know that God was very pleased with his Son's sermons and healings in His name.

Come to the foot of the cross NOW! Repent your sins, acknowledge your evil ways, ask Jesus to come into your heart, pray in silence, stop and just wait to hear his voice. His voice comes from what seem to be far away, but it can be heard. He is soothing to your soul, he blesses you with reassurances that He is there for you, and He says when he forgives your sins, "Go and sin no more."

This beautiful Savior, this beautiful man and child of God, is waiting for you.  He will await you until the end of time. In the book of Matthew he says:

 Galations 3:22-29

Brothers and sisters:
Scripture confined all things under the power of sin,
that through faith in Jesus Christ
the promise might be given to those who believe.

Before faith came, we were held in custody under law,
confined for the faith that was to be revealed.
Consequently, the law was our disciplinarian for Christ,
that we might be justified by faith.
But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a disciplinarian.
For through faith you are all children of God in Christ Jesus.
For all of you who were baptized into Christ
have clothed yourselves with Christ.
There is neither Jew nor Greek,
there is neither slave nor free person,
there is not male and female;
for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants,
heirs according to the promise.


Ever since the beginning of time, once the earth had been created, populated with all kinds of wild creatures, man and then his mate, woman (Eve), God had planned earth to be a perfect paradise for all peoples conceived thereafter. Total bliss! Can you imagine that? Probably not - I sure can't. 

We have been raised in a sinful world. Eve saw to that when she convinced Adam to eat the fruit of the Forbidden Tree. Sadly enough to God, his special paradise was ruined, after all his wondrous works. But, instead of destroying earth, he allowed man free will. And with free will, man couldn't help but sin. 

Even the strongest Christian on earth sins. We are all sinners! Accept it! And with that sin, we must go to God every day and confess the sins of the day and pray for His divine forgiveness, which he does not deny the sincere heart.

Referencing the above scripture, before Christ, we had no faith, nothing to take away our sin. We lived according to laws and under rulers who could be quite ruthless, given how conceited they couldn't help but be.

But now, NOW, Jesus Christ came forth, born of the virgin Mary, raised by his mother and father in faith, but his faith extended beyond the reach of his parents and most scholars, as proven by Jesus teaching in the Temple when he was but 12 years old. The heads of the Jewish Temple were mesmerized by his knowledge; they couldn't possibly throw a 12 year old boy in jail. Plus, he spoke the truths of the faith in which he was raised.

By age 33, he had long been on various  paths around the Middle East teaching anyone who would listen about his Father in heaven, God. Jesus' sermons were inspiring and encouraging to all who listened. No one could get enough of this man's teachings about Faith in The Word, which was God.

If you have clothed yourselves and have faith in God through Jesus Christ, then y0u are a child of God!  You live under the protection of God. No matter who you are, or what faith you are from, you have the same Jesus Christ who died for all sin for all time and you have his Father, God, who is also your father and you are His child!

I'm speaking of things which can never be taken from you. Nobody can take your faith and your eternal reward from you. You may give it up by living a sinful life, but it cannot be taken from you. Many, many people all over the world are sinning because of their free will, which was granted to all inhabitants of the earth. If you sin, it is by your own free will and you can blame NO ONE but YOURSELF!

If you want to be cleansed and made ready for heaven, it is up to you to go to God and confess your sins and pray forgiveness.  It is like Jesus said to Mary Magdalene after he saved her from being stoned to death, "Go, and sin no more." Each time you pray for God's forgiveness, it is understood that you will not commit that same sin again. "Go and sin no more." It is imp0ssible for us to never sin, even just little ones. Therefore, I beseech you to go to a quiet place, get on your knees, and with a pure heart, talk to God as if he were sitting beside you. He is your Father and your Friend. Give your sins to him and ask him to help you to not commit that sin again, ever. You are one of Abraham's heirs, so do that place y0u hold in Jesus Christ and in God justice. It hurts them when  y0u sin.

My brothers and sisters, the world is rapidly moving toward the end of days. If you know your Bible, just look around the world at what is happening. A great many prophecies have already been fulfilled. We know no how many more we will see, nor how long our time here will be. That is all the more reason for you to be READY! READY to receive Jesus when he comes. That means no sinning, only loving each other and thanking God for each day and for His protection of you and your loved ones. All you can do is do your best, and Jesus Christ knows you already, and he knows if you've done your level best to be a faithful follower of The Word of God. 

TODAY, you must give yourself to Jesus and God, give all your sins to them, ask for the guidance of The Holy Spirit, and try, try, and keep trying to be faithful by sinning less and speaking of Jesus more.

I send you my prayers and my love. Go in peace to serve the Lord. Amen.
