Once again, I (Maureen) see a Great Flame that I have come to know as the Heart of God the Father. He says: "Children, faith is not the by-product of intellectual prowess. It is a gift given from Heaven - a gift which accepts the miraculous and the unexplainable. Faith does not try to reason in human terms, but accepts on spiritual terms. To the one who tries to reason out the Truths of faith, the Truth will never find him."
"That is why the simplistic and childlike heart is most pleasing to Me and the easiest to advance spiritually. Such a heart will not question what faith accepts as Truth. The intellectual picks apart matters of faith and tries to account by human reason the authenticity of what is easily accepted by the simplistic heart."
"Many spiritual Truths are confided to the childlike heart. Such a heart is not interested in importance or recognition. Imitate the simplicity of the little shepherds at Fatima* or the seer in Lourdes.** It is always the Message given to such souls - not the messenger that is important. The same is true here*** at this site."
"Faith opens the door to much understanding. Pray for deeper faith. It is a good prayer. Not only will your faith in the Truth increase, but you will understand outside of human reason."
* Our Blessed Mother appeared to three shepherd children, Lucia Santos and her cousins Jacinta and Francisco Marto, at the Cova da Iria, in Fatima, Portugal in 1917.
** Lourdes is a village in France where Our Blessed Mother appeared eighteen times to Bernadette Soubirous in 1858.

Read Psalm 4:2-3+
O sons of men, how long will you be dull of heart?
How long will you love vain words, and seek after lies?
But know that the Lord has set apart the godly for himself;
the Lord hears when I call to him.
