Once again, I (Maureen) see a Great Flame that I have come to know as the Heart of God the Father. He says: "I am hopeful many will come in pilgrimage here* on the Feast of Divine Mercy.** Hope, you know, is based upon faith. When Noah was building his ark, he began with faith and proceeded with hope - hope that his workmanship would satisfy Me. Hope is the opposite of Satan's discouragement. Wisdom molds hope. Perseverance is the fruit of hope."
"Hope is the test of faith. The stronger faith is in the heart, the stronger hope is. When faith weakens - hope crumbles, as well. These days, you have hope that the domestic turmoil in your country*** will end soon. You hope because you trust in your government to do what is right and to support what is best for the most people. You hope in the wisdom of your leaders that they will recognize Truth as opposed to politics as usual. Continue to hope for the best. What you hold in your heart is then in the world around you."

Read 1 Thessalonians 5:8+
But, since we belong to the day, let us be sober, and put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation.
