Katya Rivas: The Penance I Want Is Interior

The Medallion of the Apostolate of the New Evangelization

The Great Crusade Of Love

Extract #61

The Penance I Want Is "Interior Penance"


I will concern Myself in the penances that you do without them appearing before the eyes of men. But we must understand each other well. What is the penance that I want from you?

I want to be clear when I tell you that the penance of these times must be the one that produces spiritual strength, that is, you must not offer things, as when humanity was young, but rather affection. This is the penance of the great, the former of the insignificant. At that time I wanted those manifestations; today I want more. My beloved ones and whoever practices less does not do My Will.

You must pay a lot of attention to depriving yourselves of those things that are not things but rather affections. That is why your spirit must sacrifice itself, and the body will easily follow the intention of the spirit. Look into it well because if you do it thus, My Words will prove true to the letter concerning the way to appear outwardly when doing penance. No one must know; I know it and that is enough.

Beloved ones, learn from Me to make interior sacrifices and to grow before My very eyes.

If I want, I will give the great exterior penitence, and then you will do it. But the main penance is still and will continue to be the interior one.


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.
