You Are My Family
CL-165 (part 2)
(see also… Katya Rivas: You Are My Family )

My beloved One: Christmas ended a short time ago, it has been less than a month that the new year began, and with it surely everyone has renewed the desire to be a better person. I myself feel emptiness as if in the center of my life, that is an ardent fire and love near You, there were an emptiness, an unfilled space (I do not know if this word exists and is correct) something that waits for something from You. You see what I cannot see; You know what I will never be able to see. What do You see in me? What does that something that waits for You mean?

My God, I adore You in the depths of my soul and in the infinite Light of Your Being! All Your desires are gentle for those who love You. What You express to me gives my soul a profound peace, and at the same time the intense desire to do what pleases You, and not according to my will but Yours. Help me, my beloved; always rest my hand on Yours, my gaze on Your Divine Light, and my love on You!

My beloved Lord, I do not feel well at all, but I offer it all to You. I offer myself and blessed be what You will send me. If the moment for You to take me is approaching, Your will be done. I only ask You to give a very special blessing to my loved ones so that they will find joy in Your Love, and to everyone who reads these – Your messages.

Now at this precise moment, my knee hurts a lot; the pressure on my chest has stopped. My feet and my right side hurt a lot. I sound like a whiner; You know that I am not, but You want me to write down all of this, and even though I do not understand why, I obey lovingly. I offer everything to You to console Your sufferings. Let me help You save many souls. I am so sleepy. You already know that last night I hardly slept, but it was so beautiful speaking to You, my Lord…

Visit me again when You wish, please. I am here waiting for You, ready to do what You ask. That is why I am Your slave, Your servant.

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.
