Katya Rivas: Unite Yourselves to Me as I Am to You

The Medallion of the Apostolate of the New Evangelization

The Great Crusade Of Love

Extract #91

Unite Yourselves to Me as I Am United to You


I value in you the union to My sufferings more than any other of your works. Because apart from all of the beauty you acquire upon uniting yourself to My merits, you must consider that the unity produced because of love is very effective proof that the same merits with which you adorn yourself have produced the main fruit that I wished for: My Love in you.

It will be best for Me to show you how you must behave when I unite you noticeably to My sorrows and above all, explain to you which are your sorrows that unite you to My sorrows.

You try to make a distinction between normal sorrows and above normal sorrows. You make two categories: your sorrows and My sorrows; common things and extraordinary things. You are wrong in thinking like that.

I became man precisely because you and everyone had to see that I, like you, wanted to experience the common sorrows as well as My personal ones. Remember My trembling upon passing the funeral procession of Naim; remember Lazarus already buried; reflect on the crowd that followed Me to the mount and had nothing to eat; reflect on the apostles' condescension about their material needs. Reflect, especially, how I took great pains to give My Mother a son that would take My place, even if materially, since I was leaving her alone in the world. It is true that in each of these actions I based Myself on affirming high concepts, divine truths, supernatural power, and My ultimate mission; yet the truth remains that I acted as man before I acted like God, as Redeemer.

In Cana I told My Mother that My hour had not yet come; nevertheless, sympathizing with the need for the banquet to have the desired ending, I complied with something that was not very necessary, but I did it because of the pity I experienced in seeing the urgency of the husband's family.

So then, in My behavior I nourished those feelings and therefore those sorrows that all honest men experience facing pain and needs, and I did it on purpose, to make known to you, in full evidence, My real being of a man like you.

Consequently, you too should act this way and unite them to Me as I was united to you. One does not think too much of this; one believes more in extraordinary things, and forgets the ordinary. On the other hand, he who does not allow the ordinary things to pass inadvertently will become worthy of the extraordinary and not vice versa.

And I am here, with My sorrows in you, My sorrow which are an actual participation of pains suffered by Me, and resulting spiritual anguishes for human Redemption. What you call memory is not a human thing but rather like an engraving that I have previously placed in your mind. To reflect and to act in the plain of My sorrows is not a natural thing for it adapts to your humanity only as a result of My Desire. But besides memory, you will experience sudden sorrows, due to occasional deeds, and these are not human deeds but things truly divine. And then if, without making use of anything, I work directly in you, do not entertain any doubts because it is clearly My Will in union with My sorrows.

Thus it is left clear as much as it concerns suffering for Me, be it now in the natural state or in the supernatural. For that reason, do not leave out anything of what I offer you, because everything is desired by Me. Do not affirm yourself in the creatures, because the Creator moves them. Do not linger over human things, yours or somebody else's, because you receive them all to give you greater union.

This is the school of suffering and in this school you progress. Learn from Me, from your Teacher who allows you each time to better experience how much He loves you…

Please, My children, accelerate on the second book, you are not putting in it the necessary interest to spread it quickly. Will I have to forget about your urgent concerns?


EDITOR’S NOTE: Starting Monday, 05 March 2001, in the first week of Lent 2001, Scoop began publication of 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 Passion”. 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.

Momentum is everything in politics, but it is very fragile. There are times when unexpected actions can produce big shifts and changes in the political landscape. In 2017, for example, the Labour Party appeared headed for another hefty defeat in that year’s election until the abrupt decision of its then leader to step aside just weeks before the election. That decision changed the political landscape and set in train the events which led to Labour being anointed by New Zealand First to form a coalition government just a few weeks later... More>>
