The Bishop of Dublin, Ireland, Archbishop Diarmuid Martin, has issued a “Statement on Maria Divine Mercy“. The woman who calls herself “Maria Divine Mercy” is actually Mary Carberry. She resides in the Dublin archdiocese, so Archbishop Diarmuid Martin has authority to decide her case. Here is his official statement:
STATEMENT OF ARCHDIOCESE OF DUBLIN
ON THE ALLEGED VISIONARY “MARIA DIVINE MERCY”
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.
So there it is. The Bishop has determined that her messages contradict Catholic theology. Why isn’t the condemnation stronger? Because Bishops are typically mild when issuing corrections and admonitions, even concerning false teachings and false prophets.
