Katya Rivas: It Is the Hour of Darkness
The Medallion of the Apostolate of the New Evangelization
The Great Crusade Of Love
It Is the Hour of Darkness of Human Understanding
Courage, love of My sorrows, flower of My Passion, your intimate union with Me is what makes you share My grief and My sorrow for a corrupted world. You moan and cry; it is your passion united to My Passion. It keeps Me company! More so than to many saints, I have revealed My pain to you, the intimate pain that comes to Me above all from the consecrated souls. You will see the triumph that the book on the Passion will have…( If it is not a book, it will be a photocopy, Lord.) Book, I said, it will be a book and you will verify its success.
Thank Me, child, for having revealed My secrets to the small and humble of heart and having hidden them from the arrogant. Am I right to say that I find My image printed in you? And you will suffer by seeing it distorted in other hearts. I have already told you once to forget the bitterness of life in order to think only of the sweetness of My Love. O, My dear daughter, I could not offer you anything else in this world but a crown of thorns, three nails, a Cross, and a lance… Now, do you not have a little piece of Paradise?
Console Me, My little one! It is the hour of darkness of human understanding, made dark by the passions of pride, of egoism, thirst for comforts, and of the predominance of one's own self, "I".
The good persons will be suppressed. It is the open battle between the militia of Heaven and the infernal one who for a certain time will have superiority. Man deserves this punishment, because he has distanced himself too much from God. Thus, humanity runs fast towards its great purification, towards this "renewal" that will not come without sorrow, without pain. It will even look like the triumph of evil over good, but those few who will remain faithful to My Word, will conform to a new nucleus, like Abraham, the true children of God.
The battle has begun and it will continue to get worse and worse, so much that even good people will not seem to have much confidence. Everything will seem to be lost. People will loudly yell: "Lord, save us that we perish." But to get to this, one will have to suffer much and cry like the chosen people before coming to the Promised Land. I have told you that dense darkness will fall over the entire world, confusing man’s understanding. This is the punishment for a corrupted world!
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 Great Crusade of Love and Mercy”. 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.
