Take Part in All of My Life
The soul is incited to love Me when I show it the beauty of the object of its search. It is necessary that I build a refuge for each one of you where you can find Me and recognize Me. Many follow false ideals and are always eager for the good that escapes them, because of the delusions with which they fill their minds and hearts. I allow Myself to be found, I manifest Myself to those who rid their souls of vices and defects, of selfishness and pride. No one will know the truth if he does not abandon that which is false.
I speak to you through created things. I attract you to Me, because I am the light who gives sight to the blind. I am the good that satisfies. Do not search for reality in distractions, because they are smoke that disappears, and this one lasts forever. He who wants Me, clear the path, prepare the land. I shall make it fruitful.
(Without You, Lord, we cannot do it)
Certainly, you cannot do anything without Me, and your word is the result of My two wills: Mine and yours. However, I expect more from those to whom I give more, and if I give less, I am happy with less.
Do not think that because of this I do not give to all an abundance of gifts with which you can do pleasing things for Me. I do not look at whom I make My gifts; it is My Love that drives Me. And everyone shares these gifts, without which not only would you return to nothing, but you would never be able to receive mercy and forgiveness, like those who are condemned. They lie in the most horrible of prisons - the one of rebellion. And why? Because in life they were guided and driven by all kinds of vices. Many times I wanted to bring them to Me! They fled, making use of their own will - My supreme gift.
Remember that each one of them is an example of what man is capable of without Me. Be assured that not one of them is condemned without his willingness and, just think, Divine Justice has not even cried out against them with the severity they well deserve. I am just, and I appease justice with My Mercy. My Love is sufficient unto itself without needing to live except by its own life and own love. They do not, nor will they ever, love Me. Yes, you will love Me. I have set My eyes on you since the beginning of time, even before anyone had been created. I share with you My sorrows because you are truly Mine, and what is Mine, takes part in all of My Life - sorrows now, glory in Heaven.
EDITOR’S NOTES: Through the rest of 2003, 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 Great Crusade of Love”.

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.
