Selected Extract No. 9
Sow Deeply the Roots of Truth, Faith, and Charity
From The Great Crusade
Of Love – Extract #33
Take up your pen again, beloved one of My pains, and let us proceed with this work.
The future peace, the tranquility of men, is not in the men of today but in the ones of tomorrow. Unfortunately, a great majority of them have grown up fed by hatred and educated in the pleasure of crushing and subduing the rest of humanity.
The triumph of good over evil is in them and, since they are to be the ones who fight against it, they have to feel sure, feel strong against all that will come from the infernal power. They must keep in mind the conviction and confidence in the ideas of true peace and justice, founded in the Love of My Heart, that knows how to understand and feel the anxieties of all humanity.
That must be the work of the Crusade, to plant very deeply, so that when the plant grows, the roots will be firm and solid in the ground of truth, faith, and charity. Those apostle soldiers will be the grandeur of the nation to which they belong because they will defend the truth.
There is almost no time left, one must make souls, individually and collectively, comprehend the necessity to make penance for their own sins and those of others, placating in this way God’s just anger.
The atonement by sacrifice, by pain, and by suffering should be the norm in your convents and parishes, as it is a way for the Divinity to feel pity for those rebellious, conceited, and proud creatures.
There are many souls that suffer, suffer deeply, and sacrifice themselves passively and needlessly because those sufferings are unfortunately accepted without a purpose, without a single gesture of love for God or neighbor. It is important to show these souls that those trials, to which the Divine Wisdom submits them, have an incalculable merit if they are directed to the utmost Good and are united to the suffering of My Divine Heart.
Help the poor souls that, oppressed by sin, groan and do not have enough fortitude to liberate themselves from it, sometimes because of ignorance, and other times because they have become spiritually lukewarm.
I want all sufferings to be voluntarily united to those that My Heart endured, so that this immolation will be the best sacrifice through which man will find pardon for his sins and crimes before God.
Be aware that by acting this way, having as a purpose to liberate the world of imminent destruction, all human acts are going to be directed rationally and spiritually to the One and Supreme Good.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Through the rest of 2002, Scoop will be publishing 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 Door to Heaven”. 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.
