Defending the Church against Maria Divine Mercy
While the Catholic Church has successfully weathered the schismatic movements dotting its 2000-year history, with every confidence that Christ will never abandon the Church He built until the end of time, prophecies about the endtime pope has become a sensational topic today. Assertions that Pope Francis is the false prophet who will destroy the Church and assist the AntiChrist foretold in Revelations has won adherents around the world that if left to fester, creates another schismatic challenge to the Church, while plunging lukewarm and cafeteria Catholics into immortal damnation if they remained in the clutches of this anonymous self-proclaimed prophet hiding under the name of Maria Divine Mercy (MDM), in sheer mockery of the Divine Mercy devotions of St. Faustina.
Her heresies know no bounds, dismissing any judgement by the Church on her revelations as immaterial, even stating that her messages are sacred and on equal footing with the Holy Bible. She further asserts that anyone who does not embrace her messages are condemned by her fake christ. While I consider such assertions laughable, its comical dimensions give way to a tragic realization that her followers defend her with the same zeal that members of cult leaders have.
And the cult is growing with deceptive "crusade prayer groups" and seminars already being held in several parishes throughout the US, Europe, Asia, Australia, and Africa. Now under the guise of prayer, how can a parish priest refuse? Her messages since 2010 have been compiled and published as the "Book of Truth" in two volumes at $16 each for print and $10 for ebook (Kindle) at Amazon and translated in several languages.
Unless Church authorities do something to arrest this tumorous growth now infesting the Mystical Body of Christ in the Church Militant, the prophecies about the Catholic Church being torn asunder as foretold by MDM could just fulfill itself. And the souls of millions are now at stake. This is not just a false visionary aided by a small set of ragtag disciples we are dealing with, but a well-managed and well-funded organization that has spread its tentacles around the world. It has been around since 2010. It's now 2013. Are we supposed to wait another 3 years?
