Selected Extract No. 31
I Want Your Thoughts to Come Quickly towards Me
From The Great Crusade Of
Love Extract #28
(After seeing a videotape of Vassula Ryden)
She is the messenger of My Peace, you are the messenger of My Love. (I write this because Jesus insists that I do).
I have chosen you because you are loyal and sincere, because even in your idle pursuits you guarded in your heart that sweet and tender devotion to My Heart.
So many times I have taken your tears that welled up in your heart since you were a child. They came tenderly to your eyes at the thought of Me. When you went to a theater to see a representation of My Passion, I collected your tears on the tip of one finger and I would take them to My lips. When whatever would come over you, you would abandon yourself to My Will without reproach, being grateful for the pain; and for Me you forgave and distanced yourself from the resentment. Through all that My eye lovingly followed you when it seemed that I had abandoned you. My hand held you even though you did not feel its pressure. In one way or another, I tried to call you to the right path; I reminded you that you belonged to Me, that My Heart awaited the reflections of your heart which was turning into hard stone.
In the same peril, contemplating your deafness to My voice, I protected you. My poor little one, like a dove searching for the true light, you confused it with foolish fires. The pureness of your intentions and the eagerness to love spiritually, took you by erroneous paths, without thinking that it was throwing immaculate white flowers into muddy puddles.
The sacrifices that you will now make in My memory, were then relief to My saddened Heart… There is no time nor space in the things of Heaven. I want your thoughts to come quickly towards Me, considering yourself with Me in My painful path. This way I will not be so alone and I will feel the comfort of your company. When the one who suffers is near someone who loves and shares in her heart, her company and even her silence is enough to console him. So, My daughter, even if you only tell Me that you love Me, I know what love there is in your soul.
Plead for all those souls that are being attacked and tortured, so that they will know how to resist the pain and torture, and the horrendous solitude in which they find themselves. Plead for those battling between life and death, doubt and certainty, and flattery and lies against their feelings of confidence in Me and My eternity; debilitated by long days of physical and moral sufferings... without hearing one word of encouragement, without being able to receive the sacraments, and without being able to unburden themselves of their immense pain.
These souls suffer for Me as I suffered for them, but strength is missing from many of them in the trial; they are weak and could succumb. It is necessary to pray much for them so that they will not give in to their pain and sorrow, to not lose hope, and to know that their weakness is what assures them everlasting glory.
The sacrifices that are asked of you are caresses of God, just as the paintbrush is happy in the hands of the artist. It knows that the beauty that blossoms under its strokes is not its own work.
My daughter, love of My pains, let Me nail you with Me on My Cross… I need for you to be thus nailed for love.
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.
