I asked for, and received in e-mail, an official confirmation of the condemnation of the messages promulgated by „Maria Divine Mercy” by the Archbishop of Melbourne, Australia:

I SENT THIS E-MAIL TO THE COMMUNICATIONS OFFICE OF MELBOURNE ARCHDIOCESE ON 21 May 2013:

To:    info[at]cam.org.au
Sent: Tuesday, 21 May 2013 7:46 PM
Subject: Inquiry about Archbishop’s statement regarding alleged Irish prophecy

Dear Sir/Madam,

Could you please confirm the press information that Archbishop Denis J. Hart has issued the following statement about MARIA DIVINE MERCY:

“Maria Divine Mercy is an Irish woman who claims to be a prophetess who asserts she receives messages and visions from Jesus and Mary, especially about the  end times and the end of the world. She claimed that she had predicted that Pope Benedict would be forced to resign, and that Pope Francis is an impostor.

“We are informed that some people are circulating these alleged messages, together with holy pictures. Please inform your people that  these matters do not have the approval of the Church, and their dissemination is to be discontinued, and any message or leaflets are to be disposed of. The Archbishop  believes that he must give authoritative guidance in this matter. [signed]–Alina Tsakonas, Personal Assistant, Office of the Vicar General.”
