Katya Rivas: Mercy and Justice

The Medallion of the Apostolate of the New Evangelization

The Great Crusade Of Love

Extract #47

Mercy and Justice


I shall give food sparingly to the greedy person and shall put abundance on the table of the humble one. He who hides behind selfishness will not find Me satisfied, and I shall be generous with whoever extends his arms. It is My eternal Justice that regulates the world and, although mitigated by mercy, it is always known and valued.

If I were dealing with loving creatures, love and mercy would suffice, but I have before Me many who understand one act of Justice more than the other [love and mercy].

Furthermore, they fear Me for this without understanding that in Me, there is unlimited power, be it Mercy or be it Justice, and that it is immaterial for Me to use one or the other. My wish concerning the actions of men is not relative but absolute in relation to Me because I am unalterable and I do not change My Will for any of man’s contrary or delaying actions.

But I speak to you with a preference for Mercy because what I want is for your good and for the child it is much easier to receive it through Mercy. But one of My attributes is also Justice, which is infinite as is My kindness. So, in order to favor My inclination to be kind, I have arranged that My same infinite Justice might be satisfied through the humanity taken on by Me.

Therefore, on the one hand, Justice leans on My humanity; on the other, Mercy comes from My very own humanity, perfectly in accordance with Justice. He who loves finds everything necessary to manifest his love because love teaches everything.

You, the miserable ones, through My Justice have become rich in My Mercy and you can truly please Me if you allow yourselves to be covered with My humanity that embraces all your deficiencies and miseries.


EDITOR’S NOTE: Starting Monday, 05 March 2001, in the first week of Lent 2001, Scoop began publication of a series of daily reflections on spiritual matters from Bolivian author Katya Rivas. Rivas, has received an official imprimatur from the Catholic Church for several books she says she was instructed to write by Jesus Christ, Mary and various Angels. Scoop’s extract, above, comes from Rivas’s book “The Passion”. In 1999 Katya Rivas was the subject of a top-rating documentary show hosted by Mike Willessee (see Scoop TV review - Jesus Christ Tells FOXNews He Wants To Hug World and Scoop Images ). More recently Rivas says she was instructed by Jesus to have her books translated and published on the internet with the intention of having the books distributed to as wide an audience as possible. Several of the books can now be read online at, and more are coming soon.
