Katya Rivas: I Am Light and Love

The Medallion of the Apostolate of the New Evangelization

The Great Crusade Of Love

Extract #168

I Am Light and Love, but I Want You to Also Be the Same


Every beginning has in itself inevitable hardships. Man is born amid the mother’s labor pains; grain sprouts after the seed has been destroyed; water surges after having fought against the force that oppresses it; fire burns when it conquers the coldness that it attacks; and so on. But the soul that wants to love God must, like the fire, the water, the grain, and his own birth, conquer the obstacles that he encounters; that is, he must do away with what impedes his will to be united with My Will. And here is how I work in My loved ones: I open their intelligence with the supernatural Light, then instill the love that is lacking in order to bring down the obstacles that I want overpowered.

Whoever accepts the Light now cannot tell himself that he is about to receive the love, but whoever foolishly judges impossible what I propose, cannot triumph. That is why I withdraw the Light, without having infused the grace of Love.

With joy you tell Me I am the Light, the Love. I am, but I want you and all My loved ones to also be light and love. They do not follow Me because they remain in the dark and in the cold.

I make Myself known continuously and I gladly give what is Mine… I love and I live but who tries to see how I guide and infuse life in order to arrive at the ultimate end, that is, to love Me eternally? Few are aware of My work. Poor creatures of Mine, how you live in darkness, rather, blinded!

(Lord, have pity on me, I ask for mercy.)

If through you I lavish love and mercy, what will I not do with you, daughter?

(I feel like I am about to explode with the love that inundates me.)

To the souls that do My Will, I give the power to repel the assaults of the infernal enemy. Sometimes he disguises himself, but you can recognize him through the effects that his instigation produces: neither calmness, nor peace, and an uncontrolled sense of rebellion are sure symptoms of snares and omens – in case of consent – of traps and then of chains.

He who lives in My Will has in himself pure knowledge of such snares and cannot fail if, ignoring all setbacks, deposits his soul in My Divinity…

Prepare yourself, My child, the world will have to hear much from you… I know you have only miseries and weaknesses but I am purification of fire and I will embrace you in the flames of My Heart, destroying you… remain in My Love and completely surrendered to My Will.


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 Great Crusade of Love and Mercy”. 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.

Dunne Speaks: Roe V. Wade Blindsides National

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>>
