Your Mission: To Bring the
World Closer to My Eucharistic Heart and the Immaculate
Heart of My Mother
You are poor of word but your hand guided by Mine knows how to record what the Spirit dictates and your heart hears. That is your mission for now: knowing how to write what I am telling you. If your voice were allowed to be heard, who would pay attention to you? Eloquent people were heard and later forgotten. Your voice would be just another sound.
What your hand writes, guided by Mine, will remain. Repeated and amplified by other voices, it will fill the earth, reminding that I am, that the reign of My Heart will not be kept waiting.
Remain ignored, humble, hidden, absolutely obedient to My Will, and in submission to perform for the good of humanity.
When the sufferings come, think that even though you perceive My absence, I will never be closer to you than in those moments. And if you feel your heart grow weak, abandon it into My hands, knowing that these hands will give you the necessary fortitude.
If you feel tedium and discomforted by complying with what I arrange, take away the worthless matter of your displeasure because if you truly want to possess Me, you must accept the unpleasantness that I have destined for you on earth. And know also that, while you live attached to the earth, you have to live off the land.
It is well that you wish to think only in loving Me, and that I am also in all that forms life and your desires and your duties. In them you will always have motives to serve Me and advance in My Love.
My Mother, as yourself, lived in this world, working, watching over the good of her people, praying… And though her soul elevated towards God in each instant of her life, she did not for one moment leave the path of the Divine Will. She knew how to harmonize the cares and troubles of the world, in a way that they all formed a hymn of gratitude to Divinity. With her heart full of bitterness at the thought of My future, she knew how to hide it in her soul and to make life enjoyable for the rest.
Being destined to be the Queen of the Angels and the universe, she lived hidden, ignored and humble because she had God with her and that was enough for her.
Try then, My daughter, to follow the example that I have traced, and continue in a withdrawn life a while longer. Your only wish must be to please Me always.
Before you existed, I already loved you. I saw your loves and ungratefulness, but I wanted you for Me. I want you detached, separated from every thought that is not of Me; not even to a thought of some merit of how much you have done for Me. I must be your supreme and only good.
Poverty carried with dignity will make you, and with you, yours, to be more like Me and My Mother when we were on earth. And My eyes will contemplate you joyfully because in this way you conform your life to Mine, to the image of My Heart.
Consecrate yourself to the care of your home; I do not want anything else for now. Keep getting closer to the fire of My Heart, bring yours also, so that they will come to love Me as I love them.
Each soul has its mission on this earth; yours is of love, sacrifice. Your mission is to draw the world closer to the only thing that will be able to save it: My Eucharistic Heart and the Immaculate Heart of My Mother.
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.

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.
