A book of prayers to the Holy Face of Jesus
Fire of Faith!
Seek first the light of Christ in others.
Then obediently and humbly open yourselves up to channel and relay God’s presence.
With love and docility become the Flame of Love, which is the consuming fire of God’s loving presence, his Wisdom and his Grace.
With the Power of the Holy Spirit and the Peace of Christ, spread the effect of grace of the Flame of Love to whomever you encounter, so that all will be illuminated, enlightened and empowered to know and to follow Jesus, who is the way, the truth, and the light!
Be an instrument of Peace and Joy, and Love!
This becomes the effect of grace of the Flame of Love to be spread over all of humanity!
Spiritual Purity is what fuels the Flame of Love and illuminates it’s effects!
The three elements that are needed to start a fire are oxygen, heat and fuel.
Those three elements are part of the fire triangle, which illustrates the interdependence of the ingredients that are necessary to start and sustain a fire.
A source of heat is required for the initial ignition of fire.
It also helps sustain the fire and allows it to spread.
Any kind of combustible material can serve as fuel.
The moisture content of that material determines how easily the fuel burns.
Oxygen supports the chemical processes that drive the fire, whereby fuel reacts with oxygen as it burns. This generates combustion products, such as embers and smoke, through a process called oxidation.
There are three ingredients to ignite the Flame of Love in Us.
Those three ingredients are spiritual purity, docility, and love!
Spiritual purity as is Mary
Docility to the Father’s will as in St Joseph
Self sacrificing love as in Jesus Christ on the Cross
Spiritual Purity as in the Holy Spirit
Docility as in God the Father and his Divine Will
Self Sacrificing Love of the Son as in Jesus who is the way the truth and the light
The common thread in the Holy Family is obedience.
Docility is being at the center of God’s Will.
It is a resounding yes always to the Will of the Father.
It is complete obedience and surrender to God’s perfect plan.
We remove all doubt by our complete and obedient trust.
It makes our lives an uncorrupted living prayer!
In spiritual purity we receive and distribute grace in harmony with God’s perfect plan!
Suffering, enduring, joyfully and serenely engaging in and cooperating with God’s perfect plan!
This is the fullness of grace, the effect of grace of the Flame of God’s love!
All is grace if it comes from God!
Therefore with humility and docility live out each day, come what may,
in complete cooperation with the Divine Will of God!
Joy or suffering, pain or pleasure in the Divine and perfect Will of the Father!
"There is neither Jew nor Greek: there is neither bond nor free: there is neither male nor female.
For you are all one in Christ Jesus."
