Selected Extract No. 8
Love Is Not In The Books, But In The Heart
From The Great Crusade Of Love – Extract #181
Just as spring water, always clear and fresh, flows out of an open rock in the mountains, in like manner from My ever
open Heart flows My Love for all mankind. Nevertheless, I have need of My children’s love… Just as a starving person has
need of bread, and a thirsty one has need of water, I have need of Love.
The modern world is My Passion renewed. Even if all My priests were to abandon Me like My disciples abandoned Me and I
remained alone with only one of them as I remained with only John at Golgotha, I shall renew the world.
I am letting Peter’s boat sink and then I will pull it out unscathed. My theologians and Teachers of the Law are the
ones who speculate in the books in order to find the secular truths. But Love is not found in the pages of the books,
and not even Faith. You have lost Love and, with Love, also the Faith, and now, you, like the ancient Teachers of
Jerusalem, attempt to convince the people. One must accept the mysteries and, as such, live them. Faith is a gift from
God that needs to be developed and increased with Love. The theologian searches for Love between the pages of the book;
but the mystical soul, My spouse, finds it planted in her heart, as well as the nails were driven into My Flesh.
The renovation will be like a new creation and, then, many will believe in Me. Out of so much evil, I will manifest so
Now you moan like a mother in the pain of birth. The whole Church, the Pope, the people of God cry and are sadden before
so much sorrow, so much disorder that weighs upon all mankind. But when the new man will be born, when the world will
have been renewed in its sorrow and in its grief, then his cry will turn into great joy. This will be the new day, the
new age that finally will substitute hate for love and men will truly become brothers among themselves and in My Name.
Do not oppress God’s Word nor keep it from being known, because His Word is eternal, like eternal is His Being. Nothing
has changed in Me. I am Mercy, Forgiveness, and Love. The Good Shepherd watches over His flock and His sheep will hear
His Voice, and it will become one sheepfold under one Shepherd. Time does not count; what counts is eternity. When
everything seems lost, that is when everything is won. Do not be afraid, My little flock; My name is Redeemer and
Like My Apostles, after having suffered so much for Me, were messengers of the good news, likewise this generation, that
suffers and is anguished, will be the fertile seed of a new life that is being prepared for the world.
Bear the heavy burden of each other. Upon the sorrows that at this moment afflict the Church, sorrows caused by the
defection of consecrated souls, spread, My child, the compassionate veil of your tears, and pour over My feet, like
Magdalene did, the perfume of your prayers so that many sins can be forgiven.
The temptations against the virtue of purity are always very strong, and without any special grace, it is difficult for
the soul to resist. This is why the confessors must be merciful with these souls, and help them in every way to rise up
with much confidence in Me, Who is able to and wants to readmit them to the celestial banquet.
My Pope is the Apostle of the people. If only his word were to be heard… I shall send the Holy Spirit to renew the face
of the earth, and it will be like a second Pentecost. Have you seen the Heart whose beams touched the earth? Well, that
is how it will be. From My Heart will depart the great light to illuminate all people who lie in the shadow of sin and
The Church in triumph: The new seed is here. This means to set in motion all the powers of the Church.
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. See… Scoop Feature: Jesus's Secretary Visits Wellington
