Katya Rivas:Do Not Stray from the Door to My Heart

The Medallion of the Apostolate of the New Evangelization

The Door to Heaven - Extracts

A teaching for Man,
about his weaknesses,
limits and reach.

Cochabamba — Bolivia
Spanish Editions: 1996 and 1998
English Edition 1.1 - July 1999

The Door to Heaven – Extract No. 1

The Messages

The messages that follow were originally dictated in Spanish through inner locutions to Catalina who recorded them by hand in notebooks. After the issuance an Imprimatur for the messages by the Archbishop of Cochabamba, the translations of the messages from the original Spanish text into English began.

A priest, fluent in both English and Spanish, has said that the style of Spanish used in the messages "is a great lyrical quality. It is almost like poetry; it is prose, but it almost rhymes; it is a very beautiful lyrical language, and if one believes that it is Jesus who is speaking one should not be surprised." Capturing the beauty of the original Spanish wording was a challenge in developing the English translations that follow.
In the text of the messages, the reader will often find the symbol "…" which indicates a pause for emphasis and a moment of reflection:

Do Not Stray from the Door to My Heart
The Lord
DH-1 (CL-134)

I want you to be in peace, to trust Me fully. Am I not here with you? I am the one who guides you, who leads you. Do you think that you could solve all the problems that arise on your own? I want you to serve Me always, even in those dark moments when you think you are utterly useless.

Love of My pain, My most beloved girl, why do you worry so much about things that you cannot solve? Trust in your God… Love Me and pray, amend…

The offence to Heaven is so great that not one second of the day passes without the Holy Trinity being offended. Why do they hurt Me? Have I not give them even My last breath? Which of you would do for your brethren a thousandth part of what My Love for you did? What it does today?

Never stray away from the Door of My Heart; do not stop in the struggle for My greater glory. You, with nothing, are united to My greatness which should fill you with strength.

Do you know why they fight against My works? Because of meanness, susceptible mistrust, convenience… I will answer with the humility of a God who has been mocked and misunderstood; the bow cannot always be drawn!

I like to see in you what the world calls craziness. Since when have you worried about what people will say? Why start now?

Do not lose your peace on account of the devil's traps. I know by name those people who are not aware of My true name: Love. They live their life, their poor life and none of them fulfill their responsibilities to Me. Each day they get more and more lost and, with them, those I have entrusted to them. They cannot even save themselves.

Do not turn your feet aside from the path that I have created for you, not even one centimeter, the path of the return of love to My Eucharistic Heart. I know that you are too weak, that I have to support you every single moment, but… It pleases Me so much to do so…!

Understand little one, it is not your time; keep your insignia secret. I do not want anybody to touch My seal, not now that it is the beginning of My union with you. Do not give explanations, let them think what they want, because at the end My Will will be done… The special days disappear, pray a lot; I hope that they visit you to pray together, not just out of curiosity.

You console My Heart so much! I love those who console Me like this so much! Do you want to console Me even more? Pray, amend the pain that they are going to give Me. My poor children, My little ones, those who will have to be sacrificed. The corruption of the "privileged" has exhausted the patience of those who are defenseless.
