Come Close To Me
Little Catalina, I want you to know that during this time of great tribulation, crime, war and fighting, I want My children to don My armor and the seal of the Cross. Therefore, place your hearts in the hands of My Father, beware of Satan who always wants to destroy all eternal joy and peace. You have free will, you must decide for yourselves because I will never force the freedom of each one of you.
My Father knows which is the path of happiness for each of you, trust in Him totally and use the gift of His Spirit. Be at peace and try not to despair, particularly in these times of struggle. I have been training you to be My soldiers, which is why you must pray. In many homes, people are not praying as they should since their families are tabernacles of My Love, just as their bodies are the Temple of My Spirit...
Satan thinks that nobody wants to follow My path because man desires only the freedom of his mortal life, material pleasures. The universe is at war, you cannot see it, but you are subject to its effect, because the Evil One wants you as his victims.
In this horrible fight, My Mother prays for you and tries to teach you the true joy of life, through devotion, by living a simple, devout life committed to purity with God. But man refuses to take the spiritual path. Understand, My children, that if the spiritual image you carry in your hearts is of yourselves, it has no value… Come close to My Mother, pray with Her, follow the example of Her spiritual, silent life closely united with God…

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”.
