Selected Extract No. 21
Trust Is an Act of Love and Hope
From The Great Crusade Of Love Extract
Hope is always green because it does not turn pale with the fluctuation of human things, it does not pall with the winds of setbacks, and it does not change under the rain of contradictions. Here I have explained the mystery.
Hope supports you solidly. After having had experience with appreciable desperation, give Me your instability and I will give you My stability. Where then is your difficulty? It all dwells in hoping against all human calculation, and after having imagined all that was possible, one cannot go farther.
Trust is an act of hope, joined with love. Furthermore, to trust is a complete act in which faith, hope, and love are admirably joined. Joining these three virtues is so divine that My Heart exults and concedes at length all that is asked of Me with confidence.
Why do you shiver, oh My son? Why do you tremble, oh unskillful one in the proper ways of those who excel in the fulfillment of their studies? Why do you want to wake Me up, if I sleep so well in your little boat agitated by the waves and wind? No, do not intend to wake Me; do not tell Me anything because, I do not really sleep, I only rest on you. I am fought so in other places, why do you not want Me to rest on your little boat?
You fear the words; you fear the rigor of the inclement season. And what better reason to trust in Me? Walk tranquilly; I do not abandon you.
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. In August 2002 Rivas visited Wellington New Zealand and met with Scoop Editor Alastair Thompson.
