The Victims of My Love
Have a Motto: Sacrifice
The victims of My Love are chosen from a restricted number of souls whom I mark with My Love. They are crucified to the world and from the world they receive sorrows, not the sorrows that pride causes each one, but rather the grief that compensates for the sins of the world. The one that I choose must not worry about himself, because the true victim has a motto one word: sacrifice. I select the souls that I Myself predispose for that service; otherwise, no one would be fitting because this work is not only difficult, but impossible for the creature.
In the unlimited horizon of the Redemption, I do not want to be alone. My Father has sent Me. I unite Myself with others who will give testimony of My redeeming work, precisely to have reproduced in them some of My characteristics as universal Victim, Victim for everyone.
My victims do not have in themselves the strength because they are, as everyone else, deprived of strength. My victims have no virtue unless shared, and have no love unless received from Me. Nevertheless, they can do everything I wish to the point that one of those victims can place himself between Satan and the poor sinner, defeating the first and consoling the second.
I want to give relief to the heart of one victim; I want to open My Spirit and comfort her.
And you, do you love Me? Oh fatigued soul, do you wish to lean a little on My arm? Come, come to Me to rest a little; you must take refuge in My arms because there is still more for you. Look at My hands, lean your head on My side! You must believe that I love you, but not as much as you think, because I love you much, much more. And, jewel of My Heart, open for Me the path that will give you the happiest union with Me. Open that heart of yours, because I must actually place a thorn from My crown in it. And, I do not talk in metaphors; you will feel it; you will see that in having made yourself My victim of love, the greatest glory will be for you because everyone will see how I delight in you.
And do you love Me? Repeat it again, always tell Me that you love Me. Each time that you tell Me, you satisfy this thirst that consumes Me, that parches Me so much. You know it, I have few souls and, I want those few to be all Mine, only Mine. I will provide you with everything; you must not think about anything but My Love. This is the only problem in your life and, to love is your task; to love when others do not; to love when others sin; to love when others sleep, are disturbed, distance themselves, get lost… You must love as I want: passionately, hopelessly.
If you do this, I will make you remove the veil of mystery and you will see what you do not see now and would want to see. I will not hide anything from you if you give yourself totally to Me… Search, search in your soul if there is something you have not given Me. I want everything and I will give you everything… And do you love Me?

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.
