Maria Divine Mercy's Problematic Medal of Salvation

By PocketSketch

Mary McGovern has attempted a justification for the two swords of salvation on her medal, in lieu of the traditional one sword Catholics are familiar with. According to her:

“The Swords of Salvation will have a dual purpose. The First Sword will slay the Beast and I have been given the authority to do this on the Final Day. The other sword will pierce the heart of the most hardened sinners and will be the Sword by which their souls will be saved.”

The first sword is all wrong as it directly contradicts the book of Revelation on three points.

1. Our Blessed Mother has been given authority to slay the Beast? with a sword, no less? This is not only ridiculous it heralds another glaring contradiction with the Bible. According to Genesis 3:15, God’s promise was that her heel, not a sword, would crush the skull of the Serpent. 

Doubtless, some will argue she never said that. Oh, yes she did. Here is the direct quotation from the Warning Second Coming website:

“My image is to be created and a Medal struck where, on one side, I am to be placed with the sun behind my head and where twelve stars woven into a crown of thorns sits on my head. On the reverse side I wish to depict the Sacred Heart of my Son with the Two Swords of Salvation, which are to be crossed on either side.”

Everyone knows this is Our Lady as described in Revelation 12. Read what she said again, 

“The First Sword will slay the Beast and I have been given the authority to do this on the Final Day.”

2. Still some may argue, the “seer” means another sword. O.K. Perhaps she was alluding to the sword in McGovern’s favorite book? Revelation. No. There the sword of Our Saviour is described as coming “out of His mouth.” (Rev.19: 15) Therefore it is not a sword for slaying as much as it is a symbol. According to Pope Benedict XVI the double-edged sword of the Lord is a symbol for the penetrating power of God’s Word.

3. MDMer’s remain unconvinced. Jesus or His mother will surely “slay the Beast”just as their prophet has promised. Wrong again. What does Sacred Scripture really say? The beast and the false prophet will be captured and “thrown ALIVE into the fiery pool burning with sulphur.” (Rev.19:20) Doesn’t look like either one will “slay the Beast.”

All the confusion about who is going to slay whom matters not. The truth is what Pope Benedict has already taught: the sword is a symbol for penetrating power of the Word of God. As there is only one Word of God that went forth from the Father, His only Son, it follows, that there should only be only one Sword of Salvation.

Now to address the second Sword of Salvation which promises to pierce the hearts of hardened sinners. “By the power of these medals, souls are inexplicably compelled to run towards God.” [Jan.21/14] That promise, directly contradicts public Divine revelation on two points.

1. During the presentation of Jesus in the Temple, Simeon told Our Blessed Mother, “Behold, this child is destined for the fall and rise of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be contradicted (and you yourself a sword will pierce) so that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.” (Lk.2:34-35) It is Mary’s heart which was pierced every time her Son was rejected during His public ministry and, most especially, when she witnessed the piercing of His Sacred Heart on the Cross. Here again, it was one strike at His Heart, not two.

2. At Mount Sinai, in Exodus 17, God commanded Moses to strike the rock from which life giving waters would flow to quench the thirst the Israelites. This miracle of the rock prefigured the Passion of Our Saviour on the Cross where He was struck to bring forth fountains of living waters for the People of the New Covenant. The command again was to strike once the rock. St. Paul would identify the Rock as Christ in 1 Corinthians 10:4. 

Let’s face it. There simply is no precedence, either in the Old or the New Testaments, for two swords of salvation. Incontrovertibly, it is not the hearts of sinners that will be pierced by a sword, as McGovern has said but it happened just as Simeon had prophesied. Our Lord’s heart and thereby His mother’s, was pierced by one sword. 

Finally, we move from Scripture to protest her doctrinal error. “The other sword will pierce the heart of the most hardened sinners and will be the Sword by which their souls will be saved.It is by grace we are saved not by these invented “swords of salvation.” Our Saviour decreed the Church to be the ordinary means of salvation and He isn’t about to replace His divine institution with a trinket. A trinket which bears the stamp of the sworn enemies of the Church: Freemasonry. A talisman which bears more resemblance to a Tarot card* than traditional Catholic iconography. 

In conclusion, a reminder from the Council of Trent: “Faith is the beginning of man's salvation, the foundation and root of all justification, without which it is impossible to please God and attain to the fellowship of His children.” Whenever Catholics allow their faith to be corroded and replaced with the secret knowledge of Mary McGovern’s mysteries, they recklessly endanger their gift of faith. 

McGovern doesn’t offer a new beginning of salvation; just the opposite, her faithful followers will come to a bitter end. Maria Divine Mercy is nothing more than a self-appointed high priestess. Do not make the mistake of accepting her medal. Do not take a viper to your breast.

* The “two of swords” is from the Rider-Waite Tarot deck. It features a woman, seated and holding two crossed swords. The Rider-Waite tarot deck is one of the most popular Tarot decks in use today in the English speaking world. Arthur Edward Waite, the co-creator was a British mystic who wrote extensively on the occult, divination, Freemasonry, Kabbalah and ceremonial magic. He was a Freemason too.

  1. Symbolisms of this MDM clearly betrays the demonic.

  2. ..good blog!!...keep up the good work...reminds me of a post i had done a few months previous.... the verisimilitudes of the spirit of MDM are vanquished by the application of good COUNSEL ...(impostured via a cloak of pious messages the spirituality of the occult is revealed in that of the ubiquitous peace-doom seer or visionary who evades reasoned authority ...this is a tragic result of lack of faith in God...so such people reap the fruit of their pride and are deceived...and drawn away from the orbit of effective grace into the mire of their own fantasy..God is always as he is..just as we are told by such people as thomas Aquinas or such as people as yourself...who through the virtue of studiousness make religion tangible and a healthy aspiration of the will////// thanks for the good blog


  3. Yes, it's true. The medal has clearly a demonic origin.
    Reverse side of medal is a subliminal image depicting an insect devouring its prey.
    Look carefully at what apparently looks like a heart.
    You will see an insect seen from the front: a spider or a fly.
    The two sides of the heart are the eyes and the head; the tip of the heart is the mouth; the two arms of the M are the two back legs; the two swords are the two front legs of the insect...
    Exactly as you can see in these images:


    1. It is a creepy business to even visit these Tarot card websites but this one "The Wickwillow Tarot" by Hal Weeks on his website has a collection which features a spider on his 8 rings card, another 2 swords, any number of the cups Mary Carberry has a fascination with and even includes a Queen of Swords tarot card.

      I remind the faithful that Carberry has described the Mother of Salvation killing the "Beast" of Revelation with a sword. Is it possible, all this imagery which Catholics find so strange was inspired or influenced by Tarot card artists? I urge any Catholic wearing these medals to venture a look at the underbelly of Satan and they will see for themselves.

      Not hard to imagine the Satanists are feeling pretty clever that they put their devilish work around the necks of the Blessed Mother's most devoted children. Who wants to show up at heaven's gate wearing this medal of salvation? Even if I'm wrong and Carberry had no such diabolical intention to trick her supporters; it is all happenstance; is it worth the risk?

  4. Yes, one could easily superimpose a spider on that image and it would fit. Oh, what a tangled web she weaves Mary Carberry.

  5. The woman promoting this image called the "Two of Swords" is a tarot card reader. The demonic symbols of the crossed two swords appears yet again suggesting the origin and design of this medal is most certainly not from heaven. Check it out yourself. What Catholic would risk wearing such a thing?


  6. Salve!
    I am the same anonymous of April 24, 2015.

    Since the Freemason Ray V. Denslow says:

    "The Cross and Crown may be said to be confined almost exclusively to the historical degrees in Masonry as exemplified in the various orders of knighthood of York and Scottish rites. In Gaul we find the cross to have been a solar symbol when it had equal arms and angles; to the Phoenicians it was an instrument of sacrifice to their God, Baal; and to the Egyptians, the crux ansata was his symbol of eternal life." (Ray V. Denslow, Masonic Portraits, Transactions of ths Missouri Lodge of Research, vol. #29, p.7---emphasis in the original)

    I think the two downward pointing swords in saltire on the medal, are the symbol of the of the Knights Templar (Order of St Paul).
