The Door to Heaven – Extract No. 10

Chastity and Virginity
The Lord

My daughter, let us talk about chastity. You should know that virginity and celibacy for the love of the Kingdom of Heaven has roots in the Love of the Father that has been manifested in Me. I want to be loved chastely; for the celibate, this means for the love of the Kingdom of Heaven; for Christian spouses, this means that I should be truly loved and that I am not only sought for personal interest. This is to say that love is chaste in the real sense of the word, if it springs from My Heart. The charisma of celibacy can only shine where Christians have the strength to love the unloved, the outcasts and the weakest wholesomely.

Just as evangelical poverty demands not only that you free your heart to make room for My Love, to put it completely at My disposal, this charisma means above all that you feel so steeped in My Love, that you are capable of renouncing a large part or all of your human nature in order to discover the greatest wealth of gratitude.

From this same charisma also flows the intelligence and the art of knowing how to offer your neighbor, not only objects or services, but, primarily, that which is most precious: an ardent, sincere love, that values services and gifts, because the fire of My Love burns within those souls who seek Me. That indefinable Love, which teaches and inspires internally, comes to be the only love that speaks externally.

When you pray silently and contemplate My words of Love, your soul is suspended in the abyss of Love, there you immerse yourself in My Mercy, in My Heart, in My wounds…

I teach them internally; I seek a pure place to rest My head and there I lie down to wait for them to look for Me with fire in their hearts, to look for the truth of My Love. My teachings never cease, I am a God that teaches and My Love will never perish.

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 Door to Heaven”.

Gordon Campbell: On America’s ‘Green New Deal’

‘Socialism’ is more of a political scare word than an objective condition.
