Elements of the Flame of Love Devotion - Continual Repentance:
This cenacle presentation focuses on the need for continual repentance as part of devotion to the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. We explore the danger of "good person" syndrome and Jesus' rebuke of "pious" souls. We discuss the need to "up our game" against the great attack by Satan and why we sometimes hold back. We see how Jesus and Mary are concentrating the channels of grace in this devotion in order to produce great Saints not because we are great but because the need is great. We note that we are to repent of our own sins, repent in order to bring others to repentance, and repent for others. We examine how repentance brings grace and how repentance brings joy. We finally touch upon the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
