The Door to Heaven – Extract No. 40
The Pure of Heart Are My Brothers
The union of a believing heart to Mine is evident in the fruit of the Spirit (Colossians 3,15 and Galatians 5,22-23). The love that comes from Me and brings to Me is inseparable from the joy and peace of heart that invades all your internal life. But it is not just a purely internal experience of peace, but of a peace that shapes and controls all your relationships… I am your reconciliation and peace. The saving plan of the Father is revealed and fulfilled in Me, for it is a plan of peace.
When a soul devotes itself to My Sacred Heart, it has made room for My Peace; it knows that I cultivate peace plans for it and for all humanity. If My Peace dominates and triumphs in your hearts, then gratitude becomes a natural fact.
Listen: peace of heart, peace with Me and with yourselves, is an undeserved gift, which will not last unless it is accompanied by recognition. Therefore, whoever says that they enjoy peace from My Heart, must also wish this peace for others and do everything possible to transmit it.
The first thing you must do is to let your own internal peace radiate. Then add to this a wise and conscious commitment for the peace cause at all levels. The idea is to reconcile your heart and all aspirations with the Heart of the Prince of Peace whom the Father has sent to you.
Those who are pure of heart, those who were conquered by My Love, are My brothers... Therefore, My Peace, when it dominates and triumphs in My disciples' hearts, contains an extraordinary strength. They are bridges of salvation between the Redeemer and the redeemed. It makes internal, invincible fountains of energy spring forth in those who joyfully draw water from the fountains of salvation. Then, by gradually discovering and using these fountains of energy, you will be convinced, in a new way, of the good to be found in your neighbor.
A long time ago, housewives would carefully gather burning pieces of coal, placing them in the middle of the fire so the flame would not die out. In the same way, you should gather all the energies of peace and love and place them in yourselves and in your relationships with your neighbors, particularly when they give you difficulties.
A non-violent act in favor of peace does not seek to annihilate the adversary, but to make him a common friend of peace.
If there is inner energy inside you and you believe in My action that cultivates thoughts of peace, you must not distrust your adversary. You should make him understand that inside him there also exists a profound desire for peace and justice; in this way, you will be helping him to discover the good that exists inside him.
You have been talking for so many years of a moral rearmament that would have precedence over any material rearmament... You have so much more, you have the God of peace and the Gospel of peace.
Begin now, learn to discover together the internal sources of peace and to build on them the art of the non-violent solution to disputes. Learn the art of telling the truth with love, even when injustice, violence, hypocrisy must be unmasked.
Now, let us pray... We praise you, Father, we give thanks for the peace plans that you placed in Your Son's Heart. We believe that You want to give us total peace, because you sent us Your Son who is our reconciliation, our redemption, our liberation and our peace.
We thank you for today's experience of peace and joy. We humbly ask You, in the name of Your beloved Son, to forgive our negligence with regard to peace…
Yes, Your Son devoted Himself entirely to the cause of peace, to Your Glory and our salvation, we devote ourselves to You in favor of peace. Your Son devoted Himself so that we could be fully devoted. Accept our devotion and send us Your Spirit, so that our lives might produce the fruit of love, of joy and of peace…
My beloved daughter, thank you for your peace now, at this moment…
EDITOR’S NOTE: Through the rest of 2002, Scoop will be publishing 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 Door to Heaven”. 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.
