Katya Rivas: You Are My Family

The Great Crusade Of Love
You Are My Family
(For the Prayer Group, given before Christmas. Final copy from the 4th notebook, newly dated January 24, 1996.)
Beloved little daughter, I want to point out to everyone the short roads, the ones that allow you to reach the degree of love that is assigned by the Divine kindness and allow you to arrive with great swiftness. The short roads are: giving oneself up to God; continued trust; and full acceptance of God’s Will.
You will be true children of mine, my chosen ones, if you make a permanent intention with perseverance in regard to these three aims. This intention of course would not be possible without a special grace. I assure you that I myself will ask the Almighty for it, if you decide on such a course.
Think a little. When Jesus was young, I wanted to see Him older; and when He was older, I wanted to again see Him younger. In such manner, naturally, I would have wanted to see Him because of my maternal fondness. Certainly I could not change His stature. Thus, if He was nurtured by me, it was because I must be your worthy Mother, among other motives… today the Queen of Heaven, Mother of our adored God, is the One who thinks about you.
You are my family that I nourish and make grow more each time. Therefore, trust me, allow yourselves to be nourished with everything that I deem necessary. You should know that I am more interested in your spiritual nurturing than you are. Know that if I want, I can make you grow faster than you think, and I want to do it.
In contrast to the impossibility of my making Jesus grow at will, by Divine virtue and with His Will, I can accelerate the growing process of my children in the Divine love.
Beloved dear daughter, what strength God uses for so many suppressed desires and sacrifices for His Love! Today my Son wants to give to this group of my beloved ones a particular sign of predilection, precisely now on Christmas eve.
Therefore, ask for the rosaries that are usually utilize to pray and they will receive a special blessing. Wait with them this weekend. Upon receiving them again, I ask you to say three times the Glory to the Blessed Trinity, as an act of thanks. Pray like you did tonight: with your heart.
Come closer to the Divine Heart of my Son and ask Him for you to burn in this fire of infinite Love. Persevere in your life of prayer. My children, your thinking and your life must be a permanent prayer of praise, gratitude, and forgiveness.
You are not fulfilling what My Son asked you to do last February - the three Creeds (see the first book, the "Springs of Mercy"). Why are you not consistent? Some of you are still in the world, still in the material. How many hours have you spent thinking about your expenses, and how many hours do you pray? Do you really believe that if you pray less and work more, your economical problems will get better?
I will never ask you to stop working. I am familiar with your hardships, but if you start praying more often, the moment will come in which your praying will be like the most important part of your work. You will find that your mind and your heart do not stop speaking with God and with your Mother.
Do not absorb your children’s life; let them have their own lives, but with an example of responsibility, of a positive change in their lives, teaching them the power of prayer…
Look for understanding between you. You are not assimilating the blessings you have as a group. Pray with sincerity between you, without egoism, with charity. If there is no love and charity between you, praying, fasting, and receiving Holy Communion are of no value. Put yourself in the other person’s situation before judging.
I am going to reveal something to you. You have lost the happiness of receiving a very special grace, granted to only a few persons, because you did not continue living the messages. But we have a God of Love, and prayer and love are the weapons that allow Him to bring down His just arms.
Make up for lost time, do not allow for the graces destined for you to fall. Your Mother begs you. You must come together more, not always physically but spiritually. God is good, He is Light and He illuminates His loved ones without being aware of their faults. The next time you get together, you will all ask for forgiveness; you will pray like today, asking God to accept atonement for the offenses against this family, which We bring together with so much love.
You have been able to prove it. We have returned to get you together so that you will know that you must grow together like true brothers of Jesus.
In this group there is no room for a Judas; there must not be a traitor. This group must transmit the joy of loving and living in the harmony of those who are true disciples of God.
My beloved One: Christmas ended a short time ago, it has been less than a month that the new year began, and with it surely everyone has renewed the desire to be a better person. I myself feel emptiness as if in the center of my life, that is an ardent fire and love near You, there were an emptiness, an unfilled space (I do not know if this word exists and is correct) something that waits for something from You. You see what I cannot see; You know what I will never be able to see. What do You see in me? What does that something that waits for You mean?
My God, I adore You in the depths of my soul and in the infinite Light of Your Being! All Your desires are gentle for those who love You. What You express to me gives my soul a profound peace, and at the same time the intense desire to do what pleases You, and not according to my will but Yours. Help me, my beloved; always rest my hand on Yours, my gaze on Your Divine Light, and my love on You!
My beloved Lord, I do not feel well at all, but I offer it all to You. I offer myself and blessed be what You will send me. If the moment for You to take me is approaching, Your will be done. I only ask You to give a very special blessing to my loved ones so that they will find joy in Your Love, and to everyone who reads these – Your messages.
Now at this precise moment, my knee hurts a lot; the pressure on my chest has stopped. My feet and my right side hurt a lot. I sound like a whiner; You know that I am not, but You want me to write down all of this, and even though I do not understand why, I obey lovingly. I offer everything to You to console Your sufferings. Let me help You save many souls. I am so sleepy. You already know that last night I hardly slept, but it was so beautiful speaking to You, my Lord…
Visit me again when You wish, please. I am here waiting for You, ready to do what You ask. That is why I am Your slave, Your servant.
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.
