Very Few Are Able to Know
I know you want to have an understanding of how I suffered in soul and body for you, My beloved creature. Your wish pleases Me because from everywhere I receive petitions for graces, but very few ask to know about My sufferings.
Many graceless lips, indeed, beg to know things that concern their lives, but whoever asks Me for light in this manner fools himself.
Perfection lies in not desiring anything, in not asking for anything for oneself and on doing this, self-love weakens and, as a necessary result, the creature goes from the contemplation of self to the contemplation of Me. Hence, how sweet it is to hear you asking Me for the knowledge of My suffering!
I want to tell you that in lifting you up to Me, I have made sure to communicate to you an aspiration, each time greater, toward My suffering and, now that you have experienced the joy, I will see that you enter into My sufferings. Only in this way will I enlighten your soul so that it can satisfy your demand of knowing My sufferings. These exceed any word and they can be heard, but not explained.
Of what good would it be, indeed, to talk to you about them if I did not let you experience them? This is what I want, and this is what shall be. Thank you, little one, for carrying My Cross.
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.
