An anonymous Irish woman calling herself Maria Divine Mercy and the 7th Angel of Prophesy of the Apocalypse has claimed to have had messages from the Blessed Trinity and Our Lady since 2010. Some have claimed to have exposed her real name as Mary Carberry, possibly from Dublin. Her prophesies are compiled in two volumes in The Book Of Truth. I have read several of her utterings over the years but have not made a deep study of them. From what I have read I find them contrary to the Gospels and to Church teaching, but I will leave the details of heterodoxy to others.
One web site listing her "prophesies" can be found HERE
A video series supporting her by "theologian" Dr. Kelly Bowring
I will provide several links below which summarize various aspects of concern. In the immediately following, one web site, Miraculous Rosary, outlines a litany of general concerns and condemnations ...........
Maria Divine Mercy, Schism! Official Negative Decision By Church - And Updates
The Maria Divine Mercy messages are fomenting SCHISM and they are a deception of Satan! The messages started in 2010, and I discovered them on the Internet early in 2012. Being unsure of the messages coupled with my love of the Holy Catholic Church, I began a long journey of discovery through prayer, reading and listening especially to clergy and theologians, and comparing messages to Catholic doctrine. The list below continues to grow as I have bullet pointed solid arguments against the truth of these messages below.
OFFICIAL WORD ON MARIA DIVINE MERCY BY THE ARCHBISHOP OF DUBLIN under whose jurisdiction Maria Divine Mercy resides:
The Archbishop of Dublin has spoken out that the MDM messages are to be avoided by Catholics. Her messages are officially condemned!
Requests for clarification have been coming to the Archdiocese of Dublin concerning the authenticity of alleged visions and messages received by a person who calls herself “Maria Divine Mercy” and who may live in the Archdiocese of Dublin.
Archbishop Diarmuid Martin wishes to state that these messages and alleged visions have no ecclesiastical approval and many of the texts are in contradiction with Catholic theology.
These messages should not be promoted or made use of within Catholic Church associations.

There are many references from approved seers throughout history about being cautious of anything that attempts to make Catholics turn away from the Catholic Church. For example, here are the words of the amazing seer Hildegard regarding the Minor Chastisement, "After the birth of Antichrist heretics will preach their false doctrines undisturbed, resulting in Christians having doubts about their holy Catholic faith...at that period when antichrist shall be born, there will be many wars and right order shall be destroyed on earth. Heresy will be rampant and the heretics will preach their errors openly without restraint. Even among Christians doubt and scepticism will be entertained concerning the beliefs of Catholicism."
Jesus warned us that in these days there would be numerous false prophets, some so clever as to deceive even the elect. One thing is certain, it doesn't hurt us to ignore private revelations altogether, and instead immerse ourselves in the truth of the Gospel and the rich teachings of the Church. If we follow the blueprint Jesus laid out for us before He ascended into heaven, we have no need of further "revelations".
We should try not to chase butterflies in the tangled forest while neglecting the beautiful ones we already have in our own gardens! And while you're there....Plant a rosary every day!
Stop chasing apparitions and embrace the profundity of the mundane!
EXTRA SHORT ARTICLE.......
As Maria Divine Mercy largely concerns her prophesies with eschatology of the End Times, it is most relevant to compare her utterings with actual Church Teaching. The following article in this link offers an excellent summary of such teaching. It does teach against notions such as the "Rapture" and Dispensationalism which is not part of MDM's utterings [that I have seen], but it offers a good explanation of MDM's references to Millenarianism which is a heresy.
