"To the clergy, religious and lay faithful of the Archdiocese of Brisbane,
ALLEGED PRIVATE REVELATIONS
"Recently it has been brought to my notice that messages- supposedly delivered by Christ to a woman who goes by the name of Maria Divine Mercy- have been circulating in the Archdiocese of Brisbane.
"I have examined some of these messages and Found them to be patently fraudulent And corrosive of true Christian faith as the Catholic Church teaches it. The alleged recipient of the messages operates anonymously and refuses to identify and present herself to local Church authority for a theological examination of the content of her messages.
"The messages contain certain theological and historical errors some of which fall Within the category of bogus millenarianism, and they are more likely to provoke fear rather than the peace of the Spirit. They play on elements of the Catholic faith only to undermine it at it's core. Moreover, they are outrageous in their claims against Pope Francis. Therefore, the messages of Maria Divine Mercy are not to be taken seriously, discussed or distributed within the Archdiocese of Brisbane."
"The Most Reverend Mark Coleridge
Archbishop of Brisbane"
