My dear child
I want you to have a lot of faith; for faith is rewarded because with it man places trust in God who has revealed his mysteries to him. For many it is difficult to have faith because they reason and resist invisible things, they resist my Spirit and they lose the gift of Grace. For those who live clinging to earthly things it is impossible to have faith in heavenly things, for they look at them with contempt. Neither can they look at eternal things with respect because their minds are clinging to temporal things and the present moment.
It is necessary to wish to grow spiritually in order to grow in faith, faith in turn increases Grace in the person who practices it and helps him to please God.
