My Graces Are Received in the Simplest and Most Ordinary Things
The Lord

Beloved one, why did you give that photocopy of the evangelizing teachings to that Priest? Did I not tell you to give them only to those whom I revealed you to? I do not like you to be disobedient, you are beginning to dispose of My things at your will and the only thing I want to do is to protect you, to teach you, to make you something special... Please do not commit again any indiscretions of this kind. There are things that are for any human being, but there are other things that I want only for My chosen ones, other people perhaps would not understand what seems incomprehensible to their human eyes...

Many people believe that great things must be done to receive the merit of My Graces and do not think that it is quite the opposite: it is mainly in ordinary, simple tasks that you will receive My Graces. Not because you deserve them, but because they are given to you by My infinite Love.

I want you to know that the mysticism of My Love comes from man’s imperfection, and you, as a human being, are imperfect; but also by being imperfect, human beings become saints by My Grace. When you recognize the sin and repent, I give the grace of purification... When you achieve spirituality in your souls, it is because My Spirit has granted it, it is intimacy with your God, and to achieve that intimacy, you just have to love and obey Me.

There will always be people who will contradict or oppress you; fear no words or actions of anybody. I am your Lord and your God, you must trust and be sure of only Me. I allow certain things to happen so you will grow in humility, but evil also takes care of taking advantage of the moment to place there frustrations that are not firmly founded... Do not allow people to take advantage of you, but be kind and express humbly the grief they cause you...

Smile, My beloved one, do not disobey again. Your spirit is completely free when it joyfully sings love songs. Cast aside anything standing in the way of receiving My Graces. Learn from your mistake, ask Me for forgiveness with sincere regret and go on, do not block My Grace destined for you.

If you put Me first, you will perceive My Love as the most important value in your life... That is enough; do not cry, My Love will tame your weakness and your habits and mistaken behaviors. I do not want you to be like some of My children who have deprived themselves of ascending to a purer inner state and, on the contrary, have been trapped, building around themselves a cocoon, without reaching the freedom that doing My Will grants.



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, and more are coming soon.
