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 your Heavenly Father. I come to pronounce the way of Wisdom and Truth. As you, My Messenger,* watch the newly-hatched birds grow each day, you note a steady progression in their quest to reach maturity. In the spiritual life, the soul's progress is not as steadily progressive as the physical growth of the little birds."

"There are many components working for and against deeper spirituality. The soul may be on fire with the Holy Spirit one day and in the dryness of the spiritual desert the next. He may progress up the ladder of virtue rapidly at first, but then fail in virtue and become too discouraged to continue forward. He may be attacked by friends and family for pursuing holiness and find it too difficult to continue on. Just as the baby birds have to learn the identity of other birds and animals who are a threat to them, the soul must learn to recognize spiritual danger - pastimes, certain people and even goals not in accord with God's Will."

"Be spiritually wise so that you can recognize spiritual dangers and overcome them."
