You Should Imitate Peter
Peter fell miserably in the trap of human respect and he suffered the consequences of his sin throughout his life. But when he repented, his soul was much more resplendent than before, and no one can say that My beloved Peter was inferior to others in the strength of the pain for the sin committed. I want to talk to you about why I allowed his fall.
Peter represents in life what the creature is and can be. Individually, each one of you can do what he was able to do when he denied Me three times committing perjury and resorting to curses to show that his words were true, those which were indeed lies.
By My virtue, the creature can become greater than an angel, because I can make of it another Me and this is what I did with My good Peter. Furthermore, he who denied Me in that manner received such virtue from Me that, afterwards, he worked the wonders of charity and of My power.
In fact, he spoke languages he did not know and that, suddenly, he interpreted with the fluency of his native tongue. Like all My apostles, he freed the possessed and cured a multitude of ill persons by just touching them. Do you see what the creature can do because of My virtue? He can do everything. On the other hand, because of his own weakness he can look at the sun and swear that it is black; exactly like Peter did on the night I was taken prisoner.
Therefore, reflect well on your condition and obtain the fruit of My Wisdom recognizing your fragility, even more, your impotence… I do not want you to sin by brawling as did Peter when he cut off Malchus’ ear, but that your faith be loyal and ardent like that of the first apostle when he told Me: "Master, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. You are the Christ, the Son of God." You should imitate Peter because My election has fallen over him, but not by accident: everything I do, always has great importance.
From Heaven, Peter blesses all who meditate over his downfall and declares, together with Me, that it is more profitable to meditate on his weakness than about his mission as My Vicar. Indeed, if you really understand his sorrow, it will be much easier to accept all the prerogatives of My representative.
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 http://www.greatcrusade.org/, and more are coming soon.
