In this episode of The Heart of Fiat Crucified Love, Catholic missionary and evangelist Mary Kloska discusses the great spiritual value of the exchange of letters in the lives of the saints. Sometimes written to encourage each other, at other times to admonish, at other times to exchange daily information -the letters of the saints always help the reader know their personality better and bring to light the depth of their love of God incarnate in all aspects of their lives. Deeply spiritually edifying are the excerpts from the spiritual letters of a dozen saints that Mary shares with the listener. In a world that has lost the art of writing letters, we should take a lesson from these saints who have gone before us. (September 19, 2021)
In this episode of The Heart of Fiat Crucified Love, Catholic missionary and evangelist Mary Kloska takes the listener through the spirituality of two very powerful (yet less well-known) saints. St. Miriam was born in Nazareth and traveled to France where she received her Carmelite vocation. St. Charles was born in France, but it was while living as a hermit in Nazareth that his spirituality was clarified and strengthened. Both embraced a 'Nazareth sort of life' -living hidden in a life of prayer, while on fire for God. St. Miriam went on to found Carmels in her homeland (Bethlehem and Nazareth) and Charles (although he failed to begin a religious order while alive) has 21 religious congregations who claim him as their founder. Most amazingly, both were martyred by Muslims -Miriam was nursed back to life by the Blessed Mother while Charle's blood was the seed of faith for those he lived among in Morocco. Both of these saints are strong patrons for persecuted Christians. (September 12, 2021)
In this episode of The Heart of Fiat Crucified Love, Catholic missionary and evangelist Mary Kloska explains the core of Mother Teresa's spirituality, being Jesus' words on the Cross 'I Thirst.' She explains how Mother Teresa sought to quench this thirst through her personal love for Jesus, through serving the poor, through bringing Him souls and ultimately through suffering His Thirst with Him. She also draws from other saints' reflections on Christ's words 'I thirst' and invites the listener to quench His thirst through love. (September 5, 2021)
In this episode, Mary Kloska speaks about Jesus' powerful words about faith and prayer. After going through Scripture, she shows the power of prayer in the lives of Saints Monica and Augustine. She explains the efficacy that sacrifice adds to prayer, pointing directly to the tears and suffering of heart that St. Monica added to her prayers that eventually won St. Augustine for Christ.

In this episode of The Heart of Fiat Crucified Love, Catholic missionary and evangelist Mary Kloska speaks about the lives of two Peruvian saints who both lived in the early 1600's -St. Rose of Lima and St. Martin de Porres. These two spectacular souls were united not only in their humility, love of the Blessed Sacrament and in service to the sick and poor, but they were also joined by a common Dominican heritage and a deep friendship. St. Rose of Lima and St. Martin de Porres, pray for us! (August 22, 2021)
In this episode of The Heart of Fiat Crucified Love, Catholic missionary and evangelist Mary Kloska talks about God's promise to us that 'nothing is impossible for God.' She touches on Scriptures that build our confidence in prayer with faith and hope in Jesus' Own words (and promises) of Love. She talks about saints who are known as patrons 'of the impossible' and she explains why sometimes it seems God might not be answering our prayers, when really He is just answering them differently than we expected.

In this episode of The Heart of Fiat Crucified Love, Catholic missionary and evangelist Mary Kloska reflects on the lives of several slaves who, through pursuing virtue even in their excruciating circumstances, achieved high levels of sanctity. One of the works of Mercy is to 'ransom the captive' or 'visit the imprisoned' -and Jesus Himself blesses those who do this saying in the Gospel of Matthew 'I was imprisoned and you visited me... for whatsoever you do to the least of my little ones you do unto me.' There is no greater way to live out this act of mercy than to imitate Jesus' powerful example of becoming a slave Himself in order to visit us and free us from the prison of sin and death and earthly bonds. Several of the saints spoken of in this podcast willingly took on hardships in order to free (or at least help) fellow men and women suffering cruel slavery. When one who is so greatly tortured finds the grace of God to still love heroically (often showing that love to the very people who harm them) we are inspired to imitate them and seek out the way of love no matter what circumstances life deals out to us.

In this episode of The Heart of Fiat Crucified Love, Catholic missionary and evangelist Mary Kloska explains how one needs to know their identity as a child of God and be single-hearted in their love for Jesus and how through this, nothing can overcome them. A pachyderm is an animal with thick skin (like an elephant, rhinoceros or hippopotamus) -we also are called to have such a love of Christ that we grow 'thick skin' when it comes to the storms and battles we encounter in life. Mary offers many tools that can help in such a process, but ultimately offers that it is by single-hearted love for Jesus that we allow Him to defend us, strengthen us and to conquer in all things.

In this episode of The Heart of Fiat Crucified Love, Catholic missionary and evangelist Mary Kloska talks about the glorious power of the Precious Blood of Jesus. Taking reflections from Scripture, she explains how the Precious Blood of Jesus delivers, heals, transforms, unites and gives peace. In this month of July (devoted to the Precious Blood) she encourages the listener to invoke the Blood of Jesus for every need, ill, problem or suffering. She emphasizes how the Blood of Jesus -the price of our salvation -should always be our greatest treasure. (July 25, 2021)
In this episode of The Heart of Fiat Crucified Love, Catholic missionary and evangelist Mary Kloska explains to the listener what a 'cloistered heart' is. Many saints spoke about keeping one's heart as a cell, a cloister, a garden, a sanctuary-where one can meet with God in secret prayer-even in the midst of an active life and daily duties. Drawing from Scripture and the saints she invites the listener to create within themselves a place where they can 'pray without ceasing' day and night no matter what occupies their surroundings. (July 18, 2021)
In this episode of The Heart of Fiat Crucified Love, Catholic missionary and evangelists Mary Kloska guides the listener in a meditation about the gaze (sight) and listening (hearing) of Jesus. She draws attention to the places in Scripture that speak about Jesus' eyes and ears. She explains how His look can purify and heal us and how His ears were always attuned to the will of God -and also how they listen to our prayers and supplications. By meditating on these senses of Jesus, the listener can more perfectly conform his/her own sight and hearing to that of our Lord. (July 11, 2021)
In this episode of The Heart of Fiat Crucified Love, Catholic missionary and evangelist Mary Kloska takes the listener through a prayerful meditation on the Sacrament of Marriage. She begins with stories from Scripture about holy marriages and she continues with teachings from the Catechism on the purpose and effects of living a holy marriage. She then concludes with some teachings from the saints about marriage -including St. John Chrystostom, Archbishop Fulton Sheen, St. Thomas Aquinas and Servant of God Elizabeth Leseur. This podcast brightly shines the truth spoken so eloquently by St. John Chrystostom, "When a husband and wife are united in marriage, they no longer seem like something earthly, but rather like the image of God Himself." (July 4, 2021)
In this episode of The Heart of Fiat Crucified Love, Catholic missionary and evangelist Mary Kloska speaks about God's gift of Memory. She explains why it is important in the spiritual life and the process of healing and purifying one's memory on the path to union with God. She also discusses the connection between memory and the theological virtues (Faith, Hope and Love) specifically explaining memory's connection to Hope. She draws heavily from St. John of the Cross and ends with some reflections on memory from Scripture. (June 27, 2021)
In this episode of The Heart of Fiat Crucified Love, Catholic missionary and evangelist Mary Kloska talks about the three things that God has asked of the human person, which come forth from His Own Identity: speaking Truth, creating Beauty, and (receiving and then) offering and answering God (and neighbor) with Love. She explains how the source of these three great gifts -Truth, Beauty and Love -are deeply tied to one's union with God and how they come forth from the source of the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, both burning as Fires of His Holy Spirit's Love. She hopes that this episode inspires the listener to accept God's invitation to partake with Him in His great work of proclaiming Truth (with our words and lives), creating Beauty in the world (in both big and small ways) and of answering the Father's Love and Will always with a heart of surrendered Love.

In this episode of The Heart of Fiat Crucified Love, Catholic missionary and evangelist Mary Kloska shares with the listener her perspective on the Russian people that comes from living with them and serving them as a Catholic missionary. She tells stories to illustrate her understanding of the Russian Heart and the most important 'work' of a Catholic missionary in Russia (which is prayer and Eucharistic Adoration among the people there.) She also tells about the history of the book and its intimate ties with Our Lady of Fatima and her prophecies about Russia and the Triumph of Her Immaculate Heart. (June 13, 2021)
In this episode of The Heart of Fiat Crucified Love, Catholic missionary and evangelist Mary Kloska takes the listener through the vow of a victim soul and explains what it means, what it does to transform a person and its effects upon the world. She draws heavily from a work by Father Eugene Prevost (who lived in the 1800's) and was translated from the French by a religious sister who Mary recently met. Mary explains the difference between simply offering sacrifices and being a victim of love with Jesus. The treasures shared with us from Fr. Prevost will surely ignite the heart of the listener to draw deeper and closer to the Heart of Jesus, consumed in a Fire of Divine, Crucified Love for all of us! (June 6, 2021)
In this episode of The Heart of Fiat Crucified Love, Catholic missionary and evangelist Mary Kloska shares with the listener the great grace that God grants to some souls of being a victim of His Love with Him. All Christian souls are called to a life of sacrifice, and yet some special, chosen souls are asked by the Lord to embrace a state of greater suffering (and greater union) with Him on the Cross. Mary shares stories and beautiful explanations of this sort of graced life directly from the writing of the greatest saints and mystics of the last 150 years. She hopes that the listener will be inspired by a thirst to be consumed with Jesus' immeasurable Love right along with them. (May 30, 2021)
In this Pentecost episode of The Heart of Fiat Crucified Love, Catholic missionary and evangelist Mary Kloska speaks about the foundation of littleness, humility and purity of heart on which the Holy Spirit needs in order to descend, take root and bloom forth fruit in one's life. She offers the examples of Mary, Joseph and Jesus in this. She also speaks about how the Holy Spirit guides us -not always as a great fire and wind as in Pentecost, but often in a 'still, small voice' like He guided Elijah. She also reflects upon Jesus' words and promise in the Gospel of John about sending us the Holy Spirit. (May 23, 2021)
In this episode of The Heart of Fiat Crucified Love, Catholic evangelist and missionary Mary Kloska takes a look at the lives of the saints who are as different from each other as the 900 different breeds of sheep all over the world. And yet, they are still united by the fact that they are all sheep with One Shepherd, Jesus Christ. Their gifts are given to complement each other and Mary shows the importance of spiritual friendships between them. It is by sheep hearing the single voice of their shepherd, that they are guided to safety -and it is by saints helping each other to hear and follow Christ's voice, that we are all guided on the narrow way to heaven together. (May 16, 2021)
In this episode of The Heart of Fiat Crucified Love, Catholic missionary and evangelist Mary Kloska encourages the listener's heart with the words of St. Louis de Montfort and St. Edith Stein (who exhort their readers to fight bravely with the weapons of love and the Cross in the spiritual battle of life). She then goes on to talk about her new Apostolate of Prayer called 'Children of the Cross.' She includes an excerpt from St. Pope John Paul II's 'Letter to Children' where he entrusts this world's most difficult battles to their prayer. She gives examples of valiant children saints who did not shy away from extensive prayer and suffering in order to help Jesus in the work of saving souls. This podcast is an invitation to children and adults (with childlike hearts) alike to imitate Jesus' words 'unless you become like a child you cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven'. (May 9, 2021)
