No, I Do Not Sleep
Man should consider that, while I make him practice annoying exercises, I have provided for him. I do not leave him alone because at this moment he needs Me the most. I do not abandon My favorite creature.
The important point is to believe, even when everything else around oneself is falling apart. And where is your God that promised to help you in all adversities? Is He perhaps sleeping? No, I do not sleep. I know well how you are. I see it. You are in My crucible and must allow Me to have free rein in you; otherwise, everything will fall apart for you.
Therefore, I am here to assure all of you that you are Mine, and I always consider you as such. If something unpleasant happens to you, do not act as children who do not know and cry. I know and this is enough for you. Otherwise, think about yourselves, because you must get use to reflecting on what concerns you, not on what concerns Me.
Do you understand, My beloved? Have a lot of confidence. Try hard to enter through the narrow doorway, by which you would not want to enter. And if you think that I augment your sorrows more each time, I say to you that it is true because I want greater affection from you. Right now you do not understand what I am telling you, but you will later.
You are placed between hell and your nothingness. It will please Me if you confess to Me your helplessness and you truly continue doing that. There will be no deception because I will always guard you against it.
I cannot hide from you, oh daughter of that Mother who knows how to protect secretly and powerfully, that the game is not simple, but here you must be and unite your efforts, miserable in themselves but necessary, to make you worthy of her and of Me. How many times have I made you pray so that you may understand these hours!
Do not continue fearing them because the grace that I will give you through our incomparable Mother is great… It is to the children’s benefit to be united to the Mother, and he who is united to Mary, sees on earth that her maternal power has no limits.
Go rest for a few minutes, but before you do, know that My comfort has been requested by the souls for whom you pray.

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.
