Your Will Be Done
Do you know, my daughter, that what I did when knowing the Will of God was to overwhelm myself with His grandeur? I would think about that same Truth. I would think about and meditate on God. I would think about Him and love Him, and in loving Him, I understood and accepted how much of that Truth could overtake me.
I accepted that His Will be done in me, accepting by it whatever the good, great and painful I would have to bear; adapting my wish to His and becoming one with Him.
I thought about Him, loved Him, and served Him. And even though the knowledge of the future filled my soul with bitterness, no one realized it because at the same time it was happiness, since it came from the hands of He, who being my Son, was at the same time my God, my beloved Lord.
The knowledge of that truth, while overwhelming me, exalted me at the same time, because it lifted itself up to the Divine Will, making me helpful for the good that would arise over all men.
And so, little daughter, to be chosen is an infinite gift that also carries an inevitable and painful duty, for it is to renounce being for oneself and to lose oneself in the hands of God.
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”. Readers can sign up to recieve daily extracts from Katya Rivas's writings by email at: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/dailykatya/
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.
