I and Only I… Am Love

Many times you get confused, My daughter; you hear My voice and follow it a little in darkness and, urged by My strength, you decide to accept My voice. Since you do not see Me, you become vexed and it seems to you that it is not My voice. You pause, and once again you accept.

You are a child… Listen to Me. I shall be gentle with you who sometimes distrusts and then accepts, but will be firm with those who boast. What is more, the water that takes the thirst away and which I repeatedly promise you through My Gospel, is so sweet in you, that you can very well say that you have proof. But I am inexhaustible in sweetness, and what today seems immense to you, tomorrow will seem small, is the fairground attraction of the infinite.

These wounds that you see so lucid are yours. This Heart that you admire in delirium is yours. Lean again on Me; listen to My heartbeats, they are the echo of My Mercy that is holding back weakly and that mankind abuses. What must I do to attract them without the danger of them abandoning Me out of meanness? I am all Love and I take great pains to make them understand.

If they do not believe, what will they do afterwards without Me? Is it not enough that I put at their disposal everything created in order to make them believe? Oh, My beloved ones, it all depends on you! If you want My happiness, take great pains to understand Me. I will not ask you for great sacrifices; I am happy with little. You can give Me joy because I help you with this.

Whoever does not want to come near out of fear, call out to My Mother with all your soul and tell her about your anguish. See, how easy it is to give Me pleasure?

Look at Me kindly. I am He whom love has turned into a madman before your eyes. I am the one who before anyone else, has known how to give you the joys that you hope for. I am He who burns with love and who makes you burn with love. I and only I… am 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, and more are coming soon. In August 2002 Rivas visited Wellington New Zealand and met with Scoop Editor Alastair Thompson.
