The Great Crusade of Love
These are the times in which charity has turned cold in the world. It is also time to renew everything and, especially, My Church.
My daughter, so loved, My beloved secretary… do you see how much I have prepared you so that now you can work with your Lord?
My little one, we must also now finish our Crusade of Love. It has been 15 days of complete rapport, of an effusion between you and your God. You have given Me all the hours that I have wanted. This is to show your brothers and everyone else who would have had any doubt. More than a hundred Messages and not condensed but on the contrary being very descriptive, they will show in the diverse topics covered that no human intelligence is capable of achieving this in the time that we did… Thank you, little one, I know that you did it with all your love and for My Glory!
Beloved one, I want you to reread and study, analyze, meditate on the Messages, and then live them. Start with the first notebook of this Crusade of Love. You have now been able to perceive that you think, analyze, and respond with a great deal of facility. Take advantage of this gift, My child; pay special attention to certain messages. Your suffering, how I love your suffering! Offer it each hour for someone different, for a person, a group, a community, a nation… especially for priests and members of a religious order. Pray for celibacy in the Church, little one, because a divided heart is not for Jesus.
The rewards for your meekness, obedience, and humility will be innumerable. But the main reward will be My Love that will light yours like a burning coal. When you finish reading and analyzing these hundred messages, My Kingdom will be close to you. For that reason, hasten to get them to prayer groups, people who are able to appreciate them.
This is a true Light that inundates your soul. I cannot deny you this Light, because having asked you for great things, I must now bear witness in this way, that I am the author of these Messages. This knowledge of "Myself" no one can give you, neither the books nor the theologians, but only He who said: "Let there be Light," and the Light appeared. This knowledge is contemplation infused with the grace of God. Infused contemplation is that ray of Divine Light that penetrates the soul and makes it see and know God for a moment such as He is.
"Voice of the one who clamors in the desert: make straight the paths of the Lord!" The manuscript is ready; it will be the Voice that will summon the assembly. The messages have arrived at the port. The messages of salvation are entrusted to the humble and the poor, the imprisoned and the sick. These ones are always My preference, not those who have the means to conquer; but rather for those who, like Me on earth, live in poverty and in anguish. To the shepherds I confided the Message of announcing the Good News, and to the fishermen, the founding of the Church. To you I entrust the copies (not book, the copies) of this manuscript, with the monies from the second book you will get the photocopies. Start with a few; get them to the jails, the hospitals, to all the needy, religious or not. Do not keep My Messages of Love and Forgiveness locked up in a drawer. Speak out; act… I could make My Messages reach the most remote places of the world and My Angels would be My messengers, like they did so many times with the first books… but I want your cooperation.
Remember: Divine Intimacy because to speak to the Angels and My chosen ones, I do not use words. But to speak to the children of man, the Word was made flesh.
My priests, upon reading these pages, will strike their chests, and like Longinus will say: "Truly, this is the Son of God."
I shall manifest My power and you will see the multitudes, thirsty for peace and love, sitting by Jacob’s well, asking for a drink from that water that springs to eternal life. "Give Me souls and take the rest."
It is appropriate that this manuscript, which they will call "The Great Crusade of Love", will end with the message that follows.
Now, tell your husband that I bless him, and thank him for his patience and understanding. Until later, My little one… My little and beloved secretary.

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.
