My little girl, let us talk a little about what true liberty means.
This is a blessing that I have given My creatures so that they may elect the way of good, along which they may proceed perfecting and sanctifying themselves. If freedom is the conquering spirit of good, this freedom cannot run along rivers of vain and stupid whims, and even less of selfish and humiliating passions.
It is wonderful to observe people making optimistic plans that they wish to carry out. Those who are bored, who have no plans to do anything and who do nothing, must appear so sad and worthy of compassion to you!
Little one, understand that earthly life is only a prolog to the book of eternity... Make sure you write one beautiful paragraph of this prolog every day.
And now I am going to tell you about the nature of the dust that has been falling in your house during the last few days. It is a special gift from My Mother and Her Angels. Its composition is of no importance; it is nothing out of this world. However, the smell.... does it not remind you of something? That is it; you are right, Toño.
(My guardian angel is called Toño, and sometimes I have felt his presence very much with this smell.)
Share it with those whom you love. A while ago you received another similar gift; it was the same, a foretaste of what is so abundant in Paradise: milk and honey.
The topic for your reflections tomorrow: liberty.
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.
