Katya Rivas: Not Enough to Fast on Bread and Water

The Medallion of the Apostolate of the New Evangelization

The Great Crusade Of Love

Extract #159

It Is Not Enough to Fast on Bread and Water


(By command from Jesus and Mary, I said my evening rosary for reparation for the priests who have abandoned the Church and Jesus.)

Oh, little daughter, some day everyone will see the interminable and burning chain to which My priestly sons are chained for having changed the confessional, site of mercy, to a place of sinfulness. These priestly souls in Hell curse incessantly the confessional with sorrowful screams, remembering the sins they once committed there.

Now I want to speak to you about faith. The life of every man comes from one of God’s breaths and that breath is the soul that supports life. If God touches the soul, He finds Himself, because the body is only a vehicle. When God finds Himself in a soul, the soul feels that the body no longer exists. That is why in the moment of communion My Body and Blood are in you. I live in you and you in Me.

Through Baptism, everyone is able to obtain the grace to experience God in one’s life. The devil is not capable of knowing what happens between man and God, because he cannot read thoughts. He is so astute that by only observing a person he tries to guess by the facial expression what the person is thinking. If he reads evil in the person’s look, he is certain that victory is his.

The best way for our hearts to unite is by loving Me. I want to give you great graces, but you must renounce many material things. You should use material things as if they did not exist, or as if their only end were to help you unite yourself even more to Me. When we will be united in love, your life and everything that you need, will be My responsibility; because of this love, this union, what is Mine is also yours.

Fasting is another thing about which I want to inform you. It is not enough to fast on bread and water. Fasting must also include the abstinence of anger, gossip and transgressions because, without this, your fasting and your prayers will be in vain and I will not listen even if you pray with outstretched arms. Frequently your lips are still wet with My Blood at Communion and, nevertheless, you hurt Me, offend Me and for that reason your fasting does not have the desired effect.

I gave you, for all life, the pain in your hands and feet, in a light way, compared to My pain. It does not matter that your nature is against the pain, what is important in My eyes is that you carry these pains with love. Bless and glorify Me for this, like you will for all eternity. While you feel the pain, your heart will rise towards Me, and while your heart is with Me, you will not feel the pain. You can prove to Me that you really love Me if you accept these sufferings from My Divine hand. Lovingly receive pains caused by the nails.

Reactionary Succession: Peter Dutton, Australia’s New Opposition Leader

But the survival of one figure would have proved troubling, not only to the new Labor government, but to many Liberal colleagues lamenting the ruins. The pugilists and head knockers, however, would have felt some relief. Amidst the bloodletting, hope... More>>
