The Great Crusade Of Love
I Want Known Everything I Say
The hour has come for My spirit to go to the four corners of the world, and I will call all men to Me. This Pentecost is so important! It is also time for "The Great Crusade of Love" to be known by all. One hundred and fifty copies will be enough; everything else will take its course…
It is not true that today one can no longer live in perfect poverty, submission, and obedience. The world needs this great and spectacular contrast.
Do not allow yourselves to be deceived or influenced by the evil spirit, who, through all means, tries to destroy in men all the holy and Divine inspirations, distancing them from all that is good. A poor, humble, and obedient man is an unconquerable force.
To live in perfect poverty in a world crazed with pleasures and luxury, is the passion of the Cross, and the passion of the Cross is always present. To follow Christ and Christ crucified is for all eternity.
There are so many fanatics who die protesting or of hunger or on fire to affirm their own ideas. Only I, Christ, no longer find in the world fanatics or true followers of My doctrine and My Cross.
When I possess a soul in its entirety, I stir it in all directions just as I make the wind blow and like I agitate the waters of the sea. Then that soul stirs unconsciously, speaks, acts, but it is not the soul that moves, speaks, and acts: I am the One who leads it, and it fulfills My Will in everything, since the power of Love has fused all wills in one, and the weakest one obeys the strongest.
"O God, You are My strength!" Remember it. Never will a supplication nor a tear by a soul be rejected by Me. I Am the Good Shepherd that gathers the flock around Himself.
The Mystical Body of Christ must be saved… I want to purify My Church and renew this Spouse, lover of My Heart. I want all My priests to wear the white vestment of the nuptials.
Married men, continue to be holy in your marital state because if priests are needed around the world, I shall know how to promote true lovers of a poor and pure Christ. The more methodical this purification will be, many more will be the vocations to the priesthood. Young men want to live a true and sincere life. Some show a great lack of faith in Me when they feel the desire to want to combine the conjugal life and the priesthood. You cannot serve two masters. I have said that I want to cleanse My Church, to take away all the aging elements so that it can acquire again its initial vigor and youthfulness.
The time has come for the deluge of My graces to flow, more impetuous than the rush of the greatest waterfalls, from My Heart over all souls. I can no longer delay the giving because men are hungry for love and forgiveness.
I want known everything I tell you. My Church is being directly swayed by so many doubts, so many mistaken beliefs. My followers are the ones who want to throw out the Truth and Faith. Do you think My priests have any time to pass with Me?
I come to you, not to correct your defects, but rather for an interchange of love, to open My Heart to you like to a devoted lover who knows how to live only for her beloved. Her thoughts follow him; she looks for his love; her anxieties and her problems overwhelm him. I come like a friend, a brother, a spouse. I have given you great signs of faith, but you have also given them to Me. It is difficult for a human being to believe everything that you have believed up to now. Oh, Faith! To whom shall I turn to on earth for a word of comfort? All of this merits a reward, and I, pious Jesus, will not fail to give it to you. I want to show you My Human Heart in all its sensitiveness.
(I have resisted writing and the Lord insists that I do so…)
Just as you manifest Me to the world, I, also, shall manifest you. I have created you to My image and likeness, through the sorrows, contradictions, and pains. When I told you that I would imprint My Image on you, I meant the Image of the God of Love, and I have not promised to free you of all guilt, of all blemishes, but rather to make you perfect in Love. Yes! I have not promised to make you like the angels on earth, but like the angels in Heaven.
Take heed, My children. It is the hour of darkness. Satan, jealous, tries to impede the publication of My messages, but have confidence. It is necessary that what is human mix with the Divine. When I was nailed to the Cross, how many were there who believed in Me? All divine labor carries the countersign of the Cross and of the contradictions, this is its seal. Theology wants to imprison Me in a circle, but I am not fashioned to the duration of time. I know that My Messages are in good hands. Oh, men have such a poor idea of their God, including those that spend their life influenced by books!
(I ask for forgiveness, book number 2 was not published because of difficulties in printing it.)
Do not worry; it is a good sign.
(I am in sorrow because the Lord will abandon me when these messages stop.)
The instrument serves while in use, then it is put away, but the artist will never forget his brush, or the author his pen.
All your words are full of hope, My child, because like My Mother, you have believed everything your God has told you. Would I leave you frustrated? This would not be worthy of a man, much less of your Jesus. Continue believing and waiting, and instill this hope in others. Keep expecting the fulfillment of My promises. Your journey is Love. Do not demand anything else but Love, because the Sanctity of My Father is great. I have loved you with eternal Love, little one, and I do not ask you for anything but love. I have loved you from all eternity. Know to return love for love. I am a jealous and demanding God and I test souls to see if what I receive is pure gold, because I have given Myself wholly.
I am going to repeat something for My children: many times I approach them with My Cross and they do not recognize Me. I want them to know that the more miserable and guilty is a soul, so much more right that soul has to My Mercy and My Forgiveness; these are the rights inherited from the prodigal son, the right to the banquet, the nuptial vestment, and the ring.
It is time to manifest the anguish in My Heart to the world Do not withdraw from Me. We are in intimate colloquy. I have need to love you. I do, I, your God, your Creator, the Almighty, tell you. I have need of your breath, your warmth, the kiss of the spouse. Perhaps you are surprised and ask Me: How so? I have need of so much love; I have need of that love that is denied Me. That is why it is necessary to redouble love.
What God is closer to His child than I? And how come they do not see Me? They do not hear Me? Are you not aware of My presence? I go in silence among you; it is true. But before My presence, waters are agitated and stir up everything; the Heavens move, and hurricanes thunder, and you do not notice that I go through. I go by looking, asking, admonishing, begging. I go by searching for love!
You will have to drink with Me drops from the bitter cup of Gethsemane, to taste the ungratefulness of humanity… Since I chose you to be My voice, I must mold, each day, your heart between the Heart of your God and the human heart, My child, to do good and to receive in exchange only ingratitude… My little one, I love you! Your sorrow is great, but, day-by-day, your heart is more like Mine.
Whoever has acknowledged Me before men, I, too, shall acknowledge that person before My Father. The Angel of the Apocalypse will one day know how to identify the "Chosen Ones" among all who have known to acknowledge My Name.
As you see, I am always in search of love, and love sets no limits on sacrifices and resignations, certain that a happy day will come, a day of pure joy, when all suffering will be recompensed.
I never bring confusion, but rather peace, happiness, serenity. The day will come when I will reveal you to the world. Some people, little by little, are filling My Church with absurd ignorance! Poverty is preached for everyone else, but comfort for oneself.
The flower on the cliff is always fresh; it is the flower of hope. The flower on the cliff is at the mercy of the wind, and weathers the storm.
Never displease your God; it is beautiful not to displease your own parents. Speaking of parents, do not worry; I have determined in the best way the course of your mother’s life.
It does not matter what this flower is like. It is a fresh flower sprouted on the rock of My Sepulchre: it is the flower of hope, the flower of the Resurrection. Just one soul close to Me, can save the world.
Your hands hurt, do they not? Rejoice, they will be channels of grace for the souls who will read the Word of your Lord. Do not be sad, nor be embarrassed; I order you to do it. A secretary has to distinguish herself by her accuracy and loyalty, nothing else. Give your all to this task that I have given you. Forsake yourself… Trust. Have I deceived you before? I will be grateful to you for it.
What a gift I have given you and, in the meantime, I cover you with My wings. One must be able to say that you are suffering, physically and morally, for your God. And you know why? It is not easy to deal with certain theologians who delve in everything and want to find signs from the heavens!
Then, do you consider Me the absolute Owner of all your possessions, of you entirely?… This, indeed, is happiness for My Heart, because many give Me only the usufruct, but not the ownership of their possessions. Do not fear, it will not always be pain and sorrow, but also great joys.

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.
