MAY 1, 2023 – PUBLIC STATEMENT – Believing in Heaven’s messages given to 7th Messenger, Maria Divine Mercy (Book of Truth), and the Posthumous Testimony of Pope Benedict XVI about his papal resignation, his holy pontificate, and his holy death by martyrdom, given to a very pious cloistered nun in Colombia – By A Soul – MaryRefugeOfSouls

NOTE (By A Soul):
This Public Statement is NOT the Very Important Special Commentary that I have been working on since Holy Week (April 2023). This is just a Public Statement that I decided to write, as I needed to take a break from the Very Important Special Commentary, and focus on addressing these two important private revelations that I feature on this prophecy blog, MaryRefugeOfSouls. I continue to ask sincerely for prayers for all the writings that I will be releasing on my blog. God bless. In Christ’s Love, A Soul

Please know that this Public Statement is very lengthy with a lot of detailed content that people may be unfamiliar with. So, you may have to reread it a few times as it is a tough read. I do not present myself as an expert on these subjects, however, I do offer this writing as my complete response on these matters. Please know that I provide my thoughts and personal conclusions on these topics, so you can make your OWN DISCERNMENT. I am NOT trying to convince others to believe like me; I am just stating my beliefs and understanding of the facts, as I get asked this discernment question from time to time. But, I do hope that this writing will be a very helpful explanation concerning these two private mystical revelations and related controversies. Note, I may write in the future a related commentary on obedience to God and abuse of authority. May God bless you in your discernment. In Christ’s Love, A Soul

(Includes Posthumous Testimony of Pope Benedict XVI):


May 1, 2023
Month dedicated to Mary, Our Holy Mother
Memorial of Saint Joseph the Worker

Blessings dearly beloved ones,

A very gentle soul, a convert to Catholicism and new follower of this prophecy blog, MaryRefugeOfSouls, has reached out to me, “a soul“, about her concerns on what she has been reading online about 7th messenger, Maria Divine Mercy, whose prophetic messages are gathered in the volumes called, the Book of Truth. She has expressed concerns about reading the heavenly messages, as the visionary and the volumes may be condemned by the Roman Catholic Church. So, I want to address her concerns, in this public statement, as perhaps, there many be others who are trying to discern the authenticity of the heavenly messages found in the Book of Truth.

Also, as part of this public statement, I would like to include my thoughts about discerning the authenticity of the posthumous testimony of our dear holy father, Pope Benedict XVI, which was given to a very pious cloistered nun living in Colombia (Latin-America). I have been recently sharing this mystical account on this prophecy blog, MaryRefugeOfSouls, which are the final words of our dearest holy father about his holy life, his holy pontificate (including relevant facts about his resignation), and his holy death.

So, here are my several thoughts about these two private revelations: (1) 7th Messenger, Maria Divine Mercy, and the Book of Truth; and (2) the Posthumous Testimony of Pope Benedict XVI given to a very pious cloistered nun.

Firstly, I want people to know that I have never read, or even looked at, the many negative websites that exist on the internet about Maria Divine Mercy. Sadly, she is perhaps the most vilified chosen messenger within Catholic prophetic circles. This is because her prophetic messages unmask and expose the freemasonry infiltration, within the priesthood and the highest echelons of the hierarchy inside the Catholic Church. And opponents are always quick to point out that the heavenly messages are “unapproved” by the hierarchy, which God did warn, ahead of time, may happen involving the body of messages given to Maria Divine Mercy. Note, I will fully explain why any possible “unapproval” is faulty, unreliable, and untrustworthy.

Honestly, I have never looked at any of the negative websites on the internet as I do NOT consider them helpful at all in trying to discern the Book of Truth. However, despite not directly reading them, I am very much aware that the many negative websites are very calumnious, making many false, inaccurate, and defamatory statements. I know that some of the websites are almost tabloid-like, in their slanderous gossip, as they ruin the good reputation of the poor woman, whom they claim to be Maria Divine Mercy.

Dearest ones, I want you to know that the actual identity of Maria Divine Mercy has always been unknown since her heavenly messages started in Fall 2010. From the very beginning, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, instructed her to remain “anonymous”, due to the very grave nature of the prophecies that God and His Holy Mother, Mary, would be imparting to her for the Catholic Church and the whole world. However, she never knew in advance what those prophecies would be about, but she listened to Our Lord and has been OBEDIENT ALWAYS to His instructions to remain anonymous AND to NOT PUBLICLY DEFEND herself against any calumnies, any slanderous gossip, and any public personal attacks made against herself. Which, honestly, I have always felt to be admirable of her. Our Lord, Jesus Christ, gave her the alias of “Maria Divine Mercy”, which is in honor of the Holy Name of His Blessed Mother, Mary, and for the recognition of the universal need for God’s Divine Mercy in these End Times.

Beloved ones, I want to urge you NOT to read or look at the negative websites about Maria Divine Mercy or the Book of Truth. In this public statement, I will address the various concerns that you might have in reading her prophetic messages. I will share my personal thoughts in discerning and my involvement in promoting the Book of Truth. So, you will be equipped to make a better, more informed, more balanced decision in your own assessment in whether to believe in or not the heavenly messages given to Maria Divine Mercy.

Now, I must tell you all that the many negative websites are very disingenuous about Maria Divine Mercy. Because such websites are purported to be written and supported by “concerned” Christians, aiming to “do the right thing”, by exposing Maria Divine Mercy as a fraudster and charlatan. Such websites claim that the identity of Maria Divine Mercy is a certain woman in Ireland. The rationale for the claim is based on a single radio broadcast that the visionary did in the early days of her prophetic ministry, which was then “voice-identified”, likely by some type of spy ware technology, as belonging to the certain woman in Ireland.

Is the claim accurate that outs the identity of Maria Divine Mercy? I do not know and I do not care, as the public identity of Maria Divine Mercy is not, and has never been, necessary for me to know in order to properly discern her prophetic messages. It is simply not important to me at all.

In truth, everyone deserves the right to a good name and a good reputation, to be given the benefit of the doubt in any accused misbehavior, to be treated respectfully, and to not be destroyed publicly, by having themselves, their families, and their associates, dragged publicly in the mud, etc. On these negative websites, these “concerned” Christian brandy about disdainful and hurtful accusations, spewing much contempt and even hatred towards the certain woman claimed to be Maria Divine Mercy.

Beloved ones, ask yourselves, is such behavior shown by these “concerned” Christians by writing such negative articles, considered really virtuous and exemplary? Are these “concerned” Christians really showing Christ-like compassion for others? Are such “concerned” Christians really believable, worthy of any credibility?

Now, I began following the heavenly messages given to Maria Divine Mercy, very early on in her public ministry, in the early months in 2011. And I continued to follow the heavenly messages, belonging to a special fellowship group on Facebook, which was associated with her public website, until Our Lord, Jesus Christ, concluded, somewhat abruptly, her public ministry in March 2015.

Do you know why Our Lord, Jesus Christ, told Maria Divine Mercy to conclude her public ministry in 2015? Dearest ones, it was because there were several occultists — satanists — who had hacked into her public website, and started hijacking the heavenly messages, by changing the contents, including the language, tone, and words used, etc. So, Our Lord had Maria Divine Mercy conclude her public ministry, by closing down her public website. Our Lord re-oriented her online mission to be the public promotion of gathering the Remnant Faithful into global and regional prayer groups, calling them, Jesus to Mankind. Such prayer groups utilize the Heaven-inspired prayers, litanies, and devotions, given to Maria Divine Mercy, known as the Crusade of Prayers, and include the divinely given prayer, the Seal of the Living God, as biblically prophesied for the End Times (Book of Revelation, Chapter 7, verses 2-3).

Furthermore, in March 2015, before Maria Divine Mercy disbanded her different special fellowship groups on Facebook, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, gave her a very important appeal for the Remnant Faithful. Our Lord instructed her to please ask those who were following the prophecies to create blogs on the internet to further promote the messages to the world. Our Lord made this special appeal, so the internal structural integrity of the many heavenly messages given in the Book of Truth could be maintained intact. This is because if there existed several copies in the different languages of the Book of Truth available on the internet, then it would become a lot more difficult to falsify the original messages by altering them, which would help to prevent the misrepresentation of God and His Holy Word.

Dearest ones, I share that historical fact with you for two reasons. One, I want you to know that it would not surprise me at all, if many of the negative websites about Maria Divine Mercy, are not authored by “concerned” Christians. Beloved ones, spiritual warfare is very real. So, yes, it would not surprise me at all if some of the negative websites are actually disguised, cursed sites maintained by occultists and satanists with a very wicked agenda and malicious vendetta against God and His precious people. So, again, I urge you to NOT visit such negative websites or actively share such negative content or links with others, for this important reason.

Second, I want you all to know that this website, my prophecy blog, MaryRefugeOfSouls, is a direct fruit of the prophetic ministry of Maria Divine Mercy. In March 2015, after Our Lord, Jesus Christ, gave the important instruction to Maria Divine Mercy, to ask the Remnant Faithful to continue to share the Book of Truth through blogs on the internet, I took personally that divine solicitation to heart. So, after month-long intensive prayer, I discerned my mission to start this prophecy blog, MaryRefugeOfSouls (formerly called, MaryRefugeOfHolyLove) in April 2015. Beloved ones, I downloaded all the original heavenly messages in the electronic format of the Book of Truth, including the prayer booklets and other related materials created by loyal volunteers of the divine mission, that were made available to members of the special fellowship group on Facebook. Then, I spent many hours during many months in the early days of my prophecy blog, MaryRefugeOfSouls, uploading and posting every individual message separately to the website. So, all the prophetic messages of Maria Divine Mercy can be searched individually and read directly on this blog. Which, Praise God, I had very few blog followers in the early days, as I was trying to figure out how to do my website, literally, sending out tons of daily emails, as I was posting the several hundreds of messages found in the Book of Truth.

Beloved ones, so, let me explain what is the Book of Truth and why its messages are so controversial within Catholic prophetic circles. First, I want people to know that there are very important prophecies given by God found in Sacred Scriptures (Holy Bible) related to the divine mission of Maria Divine Mercy. In the Book of Truth, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, reveals that Maria Divine Mercy is the “7th Messenger”, prophesied within the sacred pages of the Apocalypse by Saint John the Apostle (Book of Revelation, Chapter 11, verse 15) (Note: Typical Holy Bible translations use instead the term, “angel”, which also means “messenger”). The Book of Truth was prophesied by the Prophet Daniel, and foreshadowed by the Prophet Isaiah, as it is intrinsically connected to the Book of Revelation. Specifically, in the Old Testament, the Prophet Daniel received visions about the Book of Truth, but he was not permitted to record those prophecies, as the “words are rolled up and sealed until the End Times” (See the Book of the Prophet Daniel, Chapter 10, verse 21, and Chapter 12, verse 9). The Prophet Daniel lived in the 6th Century, B.C., so the biblical prophecy about the future Book of Truth being unveiled by God in the End Times, is over 2,600 years old. This realization has much significance, because if one believes in the authenticity of the various messages from Heaven given to many different chosen messengers today, calling this particular period, the End Times; then clearly, this particular period is when God will finally unveil His prophetic Word in the Book of Truth that has been sealed for over 2,600 years.

Book of Truth: August 15, 2012
“My Father promised the world they would be given the Book of Truth at this time”.

Dearest ones, there are three main arguments that make Heaven’s messages found in the Book of Truth, and its visionary, Maria Divine Mercy, so controversial in Catholic prophetic circles. Those three arguments are: one, the messages expose the deep and widespread infiltration of freemasonry within the ranks of the clergy; two, the messages reveal that a man will not be canonically elected to the Chair of Saint Peter, who will be an “impostor” leading the Catholic Church, and in fact, this man will be known as the “false prophet” in the sacred pages of the Apocalypse (Book of Revelation, Chapter 13); and three, that there will be coming a day when the Remnant Faithful will be openly maligned and severely persecuted, practicing the True Christian Faith in the Underground Church. As the words of holy consecration prayed by the priests for the Blessed Sacrament in the Holy Mass will be tampered by the false prophet, so transubstantiation of the bread and wine into the Real Presence of Our Lord, Jesus Christ, will cease to be, resulting in the “abomination of desolation” in the visible Catholic Church. This will happen in order to make way for the antichrist to be installed as the head of Holy Mother Church and the world. (Note: The Most Holy Eucharist WILL continue to be made available by holy priests who retain the proper words of holy consecration of the Blessed Sacrament in the Underground Church).

(Note: The terminology, “abomination of desolation” is mentioned in various verses of Sacred Scriptures. However, not every Holy Bible translation correctly translates the original words as “abomination of desolation”, including some modern Catholic translations(!). Also, beware, as some online translated versions of the Holy Bible have been actually changed in the text from the printed versions(!). For example, the Doauy-Rheims Catholic Bible has changed text on many Holy Bible translation websites. I discovered this shocking horror when studying online different scripture verses related to teachings and definitions about sin, spiritual warfare, and the demonic in the Douay-Rheims Bible. So, it is best to use an older printed version of any Catholic Bible, as newer printed versions may also be subtly changed from the official translation without any notice. Footnote: The Book of Truth actually prophesies that official translations of the Holy Bible would be changed in the text unbeknownst to readers.)

Alright, so, let me give my personal input concerning these three main arguments against reading and believing the Book of Truth given to 7th Messenger, Maria Divine Mercy, and why I reject all three arguments. First, I believe that the prophesies revealing the freemasonry infiltration within the established ranks of the clergy of the Catholic Church are clearly self-evident now. When the prophesies were originally given to Maria Divine Mercy, the messages were very shocking to read, as they are very descriptive of freemason, occult, satanic, and pagan worship inside the walls of consecrated churches, taking place on sacred altars used for the Blessed Sacrament. However, in the decade since they were first prophesied, such an actual freemasonry invasion within the Catholic Church is now openly acknowledged and publicly discussed. Several well-respected websites such as Church Militant, LifeSiteNews, and a host of other staunchly conservative, very traditional Catholic organizations and media outlets, have addressed this on-going concern. Especially, since unsightly, un-Godly, sacrilegious, paganistic practices and rituals are being witnessed more publicly within Catholic parishes and dioceses, even taking place at the highest levels of the Roman Curia of the Vatican, i.e., unforgettable, sacrilegious, “pachamama”-worship, etc.

Unfortunately, the Book of Truth includes other related, distressing prophecies. Which, honestly, rereading them, on hindsight, I can see how Heaven “softened” their delivery, as shocking as they were to read initially a decade ago. The messages are very descriptive about immorality — the grave moral degradation that would be witnessed in societies and within religious circles, as well as the amoral teachings and general perverse thinking among peoples. And, regarding the prophetic warnings yet to be fulfilled, the messages are very descriptive about the coming of the antichrist, his witty and clever intellect, his charming and charismatic personality, which will mask his purely evil, sadistic nature, his ruthless and brutal regime, and his wicked agenda straight from the very pit of hell. Finally, obviously, God warns about NEVER taking the coming mark of the beast, which is irreversible and irrevocable, resulting in eternal suffering and torment in hell (Book of Revelation, Chapter 13). Footnote: The Book of Truth even warned, in advance, about widespread vaccination programs against the populace to exert totalitarian control.

Now, I know that the main reason why the Book of Truth given to 7th Messenger, Maria Divine Mercy, is rejected by many people is due to its controversial messages about the “false prophet”. Heaven revealed that our holy father, dearly beloved, Pope Benedict XVI, was the last, true, legitimate pope of the Roman Catholic Church. The messages accurately prophesied, exactly one year in advance, the day of the forced resignation of dearest Pope Benedict XVI from the papal chair, and that the man coming after him, would be an “impostor”, not properly chosen by canon law to be the Supreme Pontiff, Vicar of Christ. The heavenly messages reveal that dearly beloved, Pope Benedict XVI, would be banished, ruling in exile, endeavoring to lead the Remnant Faithful to the best of his abilities. The heavenly messages even give small hints that dearly beloved, Pope Benedict XVI, would become a holy martyr, dying before the Great Warning (Illumination of Conscience) happened to mankind.

Dearest ones, as many of you know, I posted recently the English translation of the posthumous testimony of dearly beloved, Pope Benedict XVI, given as private revelation to a very pious cloistered nun in Colombia. And truthfully, when I first read the mystical account of our dearly beloved, holy father, about the facts surrounding his forced resignation, his life suffering in exile, and eventually, his death by holy martyrdom, his final words did not surprise me. Although I was deeply saddened a great deal by the confirmations of several rumors swirling for years over his papacy, his reign and his life in exile. The heavenly messages found in the Book of Truth prepared me to be open and receptive to hearing and accepting the posthumous testimony of our sweet, beloved, Pope Benedict XVI. Yes, the prophecies concerning Pope Benedict XVI were changed a bit in their actual fulfillment, but that is only because satan listens to authentic prophets and chosen messengers, too, and so, accordingly, hell will adapt its maneuvers, tactics, and strategies, etc. As, why would hell desire to give any glory to God, by fulfilling prophecy exactly as given by Heaven, even if it is regarding its already planned evil? Yes, hell desires to relish in its slavish mastery over mankind. But, hell also knows to stay hidden, secret and subtle in its evil exploits, lest the many unwitting, mindless slaves discover their real living condition in bondage, crying out for total and complete liberation from God.

Beloved ones, I must make this side-note, to say to you, that everything that dearly beloved, Pope Benedict XVI, testifies in his posthumous revelation is bona fide, factual, and truthful. Yes, there were a few details that I was not aware of, but most of the written account… Honestly, the mystical revelation settled many private speculations that I had made and drawn conclusions over the years.

YES, I had heard the rumors about the political intervention by the USA to force the papal resignation of dearly beloved, Pope Benedict XVI, in 2013. YES, I had heard about the frozen bank accounts of the Vatican Bank in the days of the papal resignation, as it was reported in the Italian news outlets that all the bank branches and ATMs were shut down at the Vatican and surrounding Rome. Note, this damaging secret about the Vatican Bank and the aggressive manipulation by foreign interests over its internal affairs, especially, over the papal resignation, and other unethical banking matters, needed to be publicly exposed. This is the reason why dearly beloved, Cardinal George Pell, was wrongly charged and convicted of fake clerical child sexual abuse in Australia, because the “overseers” could not blackmail him from trying to expose the banking cover-up. His wrongly-judged conviction was eventually overturned by the Australian court system. At the time, four different chosen messengers, whose heavenly messages that I promote on this blog, MaryRefugeOfSouls, were revealing how he was wrongly accused and that he would be acquitted from all charges someday. Unfortunately, Cardinal Pell is deceased now, having strangely died of a heart attack, 10 days after Pope Benedict XVI’s untimely demise by holy martyrdom, which was revealed as involuntary euthanasia by lethal injection in the mystical account to the very pious Colombian nun. Tragically, Cardinal Pell suddenly died at a hospital in Rome, shortly after hip replacement surgery, where he was reported as awake, alert, lucid, and talking to hospital staff in recovery. (Note: The day after Cardinal Pell’s untimely death, a posthumous article attributed to him was published where he openly denounced the Vatican’s plans for its forthcoming ‘Synod on Synodality’ as a ‘toxic nightmare’ that is ‘couched in neo-Marxist jargon’. It has also been revealed posthumously that Cardinal Pell was the author of a similarly critical memorandum of the pontificate of Pope Francis and the future papal election due his stacking of voting-eligible liberal members in the College of Cardinals. The critical memorandum had circulated anonymously among the Cardinals last Lent Season 2022.)

(ADDITIONAL NOTE: In the posthumous testimony of Pope Benedict XVI, our holy father reveals that he wrote several important documents addressed to the Catholic Church and to the world. Copies of these confidential documents were secretly entrusted to his good friend, Catholic theologian, professor, and deacon, Giulio Colombi, with the understanding that he was to publish these documents after his imminent death and to give a copy to each member of the College of Cardinals, so that they in turn could make the right decisions and convene a lawful Conclave after his death. The original documents were supposed to be published three days after his death, however, they were burned by our holy father’s private secretary, Georg Gänswein, under orders by Pope Francis. Furthermore, our holy father’s good friend, Giulio Colombi, was unable to fulfill the request to publish the confidential documents, as he died on January 1, 2023, the day after Pope Benedict XVI’s death, the timing of which seems strangely coincidental to me.)

Furthermore, YES, I had known about all the Italian media coverage reporting about the personal butler, Paolo Gabriele, of dearly beloved, Pope Benedict XVI, who had betrayed him by stealing his private papers, personal photographs, etc., in 2012, and about his general lack of trustworthiness, etc. I had surmised that this man might be capable of poisoning him and how speculation of this definite possibility might have caused Pope Benedict XVI, to be under severe duress, thinking he might be potentially murdered by his enemies at anytime. I have also speculated privately, that our dear holy father might have been coerced to resign, because he was threatened by blackmail with potentially “doctored” photographs with the homosexual lobby, perhaps, using the same private photographs that were stolen by his personal butler. I say this, because there is an active gay lobby and known homosexual circle within the clergy ranks in Rome and at the Vatican.

Also, I will share with you all, something very significant that happened to Father Nicholas Gruner. Father Gruner was known as a very prominent promoter of the Marian apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima, and was spoken very highly by Our Blessed Mother, once, on the day he died, in the messages known as Locutions To The World that I feature on this blog, MaryRefugeOfSouls. Well, beloved ones, Father Gruner was very heavily marginalized and actively threatened by the thuggish, secret mafia, existing behind closed doors at the Vatican. I have seen videos exposing the murder attempts on his life. I have also seen videos showing official photographs by the Vatican that are verifiable as being altered and doctored related to Father Gruner by using modern imaging technology. For example, there exist private photographs taken of Father Gruner carrying images of Our Lady of Fatima, as the papal entourage was passing by on Vatican grounds. But, the official photographs showing such papal events were altered and doctored, so the presence of Father Gruner carrying images of Our Lady of Fatima was ERASED from the background crowd. This was shown extensively in a documentary, certified by imaging technology experts. So, YES, dearest ones, sorrowfully, it is very likely and highly probable that dearly beloved, Pope Benedict XVI, was threatened with blackmail, using “compromising” photographs that were doctored of him with the gay lobby or even some type of scandalous clerical child sexual abuse, like Cardinal Pell. And so, in order to avoid a very great schism within the Roman Catholic Church, our dear holy father “resigned” under severe duress, resolving to serve Our Lord the best way he could, while in captive exile on Vatican grounds.

So, indeed, I was not surprised by the posthumous testimony by our dearly beloved, holy father, Pope Benedict XVI, where he confirms all my private speculations and suspicions about a potential blackmail and other mortal, bodily threats, so as to coerce, under duress, a papal resignation by him. Also, other more astute commentators, more knowledgeable about canon law and the Latin language than me, have extensively studied the text written and read out loud by our dear holy father, stating his papal resignation to the world. Now, please note, that our dear holy father, Pope Benedict XVI, was intellectually brilliant. Our holy father had a clear mastery, a near-perfect native linguistic fluency in the sacred language, Latin, of Holy Mother Church; and that our holy father, was the authoritative expert of all canon law and sacred doctrine and dogma in Holy Mother Church, having served, par excellence, in the highest ecclesiastical, commanding roles within the Roman Curia, the papal court that governs the Catholic Church, until he was finally chosen by Divine Will as the Supreme Pontiff, Vicar of Christ.

Beloved ones, these more astute commentators have concluded that the papal resignation by our dear holy father, Pope Benedict XVI, was written in very sloppy Latin, with much ambiguity in both the words and sentence structure in the text. In the posthumous testimony, dearly beloved, Pope Benedict XVI, confirms that he attempted to write the text, in such a way, to indicate that he was never resigning from the papal Chair of Saint Peter. He also confirms that is why he kept the important term of “Pope” as part of the honorary title accorded to him as “emeritus”. He also confirms that is why he continued to wear his white papal vestments, as part of his captive exile on the grounds of the Vatican. And he also confirms that he tried to give clues about the fact that he never truly resigned as our dearest holy father, within the pages of the few texts that he was permitted to write and to publish to the rest of the world. As our dear holy father silently cried, hoping in deep, heartfelt prayer, that his beloved children, those loyal to him, as the Vicar of Christ on earth, would know that he still deeply cared in pastoral love about them, as a tender and kind-hearted father always does.

Oh, dearest ones, in all these passing years, I can confirm to you all, that YES, the silent tears and dear heartfelt, poignant cries of our beloved, sweet, holy father, Pope Benedict XVI, were heard by the Remnant Faithful, who honored, cherished, and loved him. As, YES, I have read, in all these passing years, the many speculations by other more astute commentators, who remained loyal to our dearest holy father, about the deciphering of his clues hidden in plain sight. As they pondered and prayed about his health, his mental vitality, his well-being and his welfare, uplifting him in daily prayer for his continued strength and holy perseverance in our dear Catholic faith. That is also why, in the posthumous testimony, when our dearest holy father, Pope Benedict XVI, mentions how distraught he was, over the time that he was publicly snubbed by all the German Catholic cardinals and bishops that he was greeting on a visit to Berlin, Germany; it truly made my cry. As, honestly, I have seen the video where he was publicly snubbed. There was a long line of German cardinals and bishops, and as he walked slowly down the line, he would attempt to greet each of them, by extending his hand out in friendship. Beloved ones, no one, not a single German cardinal nor bishop, would grab his hand back for a handshake. It was so tragic, so distressing, so heartbreaking, to watch that video. In truth, I actually had to watch the video a few times, as I could not believe, at first, what my physical eyes were seeing. I was in so much incredulous disbelief, so much shock, witnessing our dearest holy father being so uncaringly, so coldly, publicly snubbed, by all these rude men who had vowed loyalty and fidelity to him, as pope. I really could not grasp how much he was despised and rejected by these rude men. At the time, I had debated by myself whether or not, I should share the video publicly on this blog, MaryRefugeOfSouls, but I decided against it, because it was so heart wrenching to watch it.

Truly, it is also heart wrenching for me, to know that the man, known as “Pope Francis” (Bergoglio), is not only an “impostor” to the Holy Chair of Saint Peter, but, in fact, he has been identified by prophecy to be the “false prophet” mentioned in Sacred Scriptures (See Book of Revelation, Chapter 13, reinforced by the Book of Truth). It is biblically prophesied that the false prophet, will be a type of wolf in sheep’s clothing, meaning, a false shepherd (from the ranks of the Catholic priesthood) who will attempt to lead all the lambs (faithful believers) away from God, by preparing the way for the antichrist to take full leadership of God’s Church, which is the Roman Catholic Church, established by Our Lord, Jesus Christ, almost 2,000 years ago. In the Book of Truth, Our Lord has stated that the “antichrist is the greatest enemy of God to have ever walked upon the face of the earth”.

Dearest ones, YES, I had heard the rumors circulating about the very prideful and arrogant demeanor of Francis (Bergoglio), as he dominated over many people, behind closed doors at the Vatican, ruling with much disdainful contempt, in an almost tyrannical way. And YES, I do believe the private revelations supporting this rumor found in both the Book of Truth (Maria Divine Mercy) and, now, the recent posthumous testimony of dearly beloved, Pope Benedict XVI, delivered by mystical revelation, about his final days in captive exile on the grounds of the Vatican. However, I have always prayed for Francis (Bergoglio) to turn away from his wickedness and all unrighteousness. And, in many past writings, I have strived always to give Francis (Bergoglio) the benefit of the doubt, so he could retain a respectful, public reputation. In my writings, I am not about tearing people down, but I focus all my efforts on lifting people up, so they can change, sincerely convert, and become the good person that God intended always for them to be. As NO human soul is ever conceived and born into this world, with a divinely intended destiny of hell. Truly, God creates every human soul with a GOOD purpose, a GOOD plan for their life, with the Ultimate Goal for eternal happiness and the deepest of friendships with God in Heaven. So, I have always encouraged people to be very generous with prayers of conversion for Francis (Bergoglio), hoping for the Goodness that God intended for him as a servant of God, to take place finally in his life. So, yes, it is distressing to know and tragic to witness the opposite manifesting in him and everything that he touches become rotten.

Regarding Francis (Bergoglio), I also want to state that although Our Lord, Jesus Christ, speaks many negative things about the false prophet to 7th Messenger, Maria Divine Mercy; at the same time, in the Book of Truth, Our Lord NEVER identifies who the false prophet is, by his personal name. I have read three times the multiple volumes of the several hundreds of pages found in the Book of Truth, so I can publicly testify that fact on this prophecy blog, MaryRefugeOfSouls. Never once does Our Lord reveal by his personal name, that Francis (Bergoglio) is, indeed, the false prophet. Rather, He provides many descriptions and prophecies in the Book of Truth to suggest this possibility. And, honestly, I have always thought that fact is very telling about the Goodness of God, His Divine Character, His Divine Love, His Divine Mercy, etc., regarding His Holy Intentions concerning Francis (Bergoglio). And it is very telling about how much God respects the gift of free will, along with the gift of discernment of spirits, that He provides to His precious children on earth. God does not force us, but He invites us to believe in His Holy Word. That is how one truly knows that the God that we serve is truly a Good God, a Good Father. Because, even though He delivers very harsh, very sobering realities in prophecies, as He must inform us, to put us on notice, to stay true to His Divine Character as a Perfectly Just Judge; He also balances the bad prophecies with His Perfect Love and His Perfect Mercy, so we may repent with the sincerest of hearts, as one witnesses the much respect God affords Francis (Bergoglio) by not naming him outright, in the holiest of intentions for his sincerest repentance, resulting in the fullness of his conversion.

Now, beloved ones, I will address the third argument that many people prop up for disbelieving the Book of Truth given to 7th Messenger, Maria Divine Mercy, which is very much related to the second reason why people reject the heavenly messages due to the prophecies indicating Francis (Bergoglio) is the false prophet. Let me first remind you all with my words written earlier, describing the third argument why people reject the prophetic volumes: “[T]hree, that there will be coming a day when the Remnant Faithful will be openly maligned and severely persecuted, practicing the True Christian Faith in the Underground Church. As the words of holy consecration prayed by the priests for the Blessed Sacrament in the Holy Mass will be tampered by the false prophet, so transubstantiation of the bread and wine into the Real Presence of Our Lord, Jesus Christ, will cease to be, resulting in the “abomination of desolation” in the visible Catholic Church. This will happen in order to make way for the antichrist to be installed as the head of Holy Mother Church and the world.”

Now, many people reject the Book of Truth, because, recorded in Sacred Scriptures, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, has promised, “the gates of hell shall never prevail against the church” (Gospel of Saint Matthew, Chapter 16, verse 18). However, let us unwrap and consider what truly Our Lord is revealing here about the divine promise for always protecting His Beloved Church, the Roman Catholic Church, on earth. What is really the Church here? Is it a physical place or a spiritual condition or a state of being? Dearest ones, foremost, the Church — the authentic faith — is the true mystical body of Christian believers who follow Jesus Christ and the Ten Commandments of His Eternal Father, Papa God, striving to live fully the Supreme Divine Will in their earthly lives. Here, the Church is really about the people — its faithful believers — and not about any physical structure or physical location on earth. In fact, Saint Anne-Catherine Emmerich, who has been called the greatest visionary by Our Lord, Jesus Christ, because she had the most comprehensive gift for mystical visions ever bestowed by God, once declared in her mystical writings, that the “Church” is, indeed, the reality of the mystical body of believers on earth. She wrote: “The Church is the only one, the Roman Catholic! And if there were left upon earth but one Catholic, he would be the one, universal Church, the Catholic Church, the Church of Jesus Christ against which the gates of hell shall never prevail.”

Now, the divine promise that “the gates of hell shall never prevail over the church”, was spoken over Saint Peter the Apostle, when Our Lord, Jesus Christ, was indicating that he would be the first Pope of the Catholic Church, the Vicar of Christ in Holy Mother Church. So, many people, both great and small throughout Church history, have conjectured that the holy father, the pope, can never fall in his visible, acting role of leading the Catholic Church. But, recall, Saint Anne-Catherine Emmerich, with her extensive mystical visions, who could see the entirety of salvation history, both in the past — starting with the Divine Fiat for All of Creation — and well into the future, including our present-day of the End Times and the Apocalypse — NEVER indicated that the leadership of the Catholic Church could never fall. In fact, she prophesied that there would come a time when there would be “two popes” — one legitimate and one illegitimate — and that the “Church” would always be divinely protected even if there was ONLY one Catholic person left, NOT that the one Catholic person left, who would be divinely protected, would be always the pope.

Dearest ones, if you read Sacred Scriptures thoughtfully and carefully, it is actually self-evident that there will come a future day when there will be a “false shepherd” who will attempt to lead Holy Mother Church. As the Book of Revelation (Chapter 13) states clearly that there will be a “false prophet” who will take visible reign in a fallen Christian Church. Also, there are many scripture verses that speak of the “abomination of desolation” happening in the End Times. Truly, if one believes that the prophesied, abomination of desolation, means the removal of the Real Presence of Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in the Most Holy Eucharist; then, how can this prophesied tragedy come about without some type of false shepherd leading Holy Mother Church? Obviously, the holy words of Consecration for the Blessed Sacrament, the Most Holy Eucharist, cannot be changed and accepted by the rest of Holy Mother Church, unless such an act of sacrilegious desecration, is both approved, supported, and actively spread and encouraged, from the very top, the very head, the visible leader of the Catholic Church.

Moreover, many esteemed theologians and eminent scholars will claim that the papacy can never fall, because the pope is the “Restrainer” who holds back the “lawless one” (the antichrist) from taking full possession in Holy Mother Church, as mentioned in Sacred Scriptures (2nd Letter to the Thessalonians, Chapter 2). However, it has also been proposed that the “Restrainer” might be, instead, the Holy Spirit, or even Saint Michael Archangel, as the text is unclear and ambiguous about this mystery man. Oh, beloved ones, Heaven has finally revealed who this mysterious Restrainer is, according to private revelation given to a very holy, mystic priest. The Restrainer who has prevented the antichrist from gaining a foothold within Holy Mother Church, is Saint Joseph, the earthly father of Our Lord, Jesus Christ. Saint Joseph, who is known as the “Terror of Demons”, and has been revealed by Heaven, to be the greatest Saint, above all other Saints and holy Angels, second only to the Heavenly Queen and Holy Mother of God, the Blessed Virgin Mary. Therefore, this means that the Restrainer who has protected Holy Mother Church for the past 2,000 years, is NOT the holy father, the many Catholic leaders, acting in their papal role throughout the several centuries. The Restrainer is not the pope whom many people claim to believe, who holds back the antichrist.

Consequently, this means that Sacred Scriptures does not “guaranteed” that the pope can never fall in his acting leadership role of Holy Mother Church (according to 2nd Letter to the Thessalonians, Chapter 2). Indeed, any pope is merely a servant of God and an ambassador of Christ, chosen to live for a “short while” within a certain context of salvation history, who defends the Holy Christian Faith on earth to the best of his abilities. However, the Roman Catholic Church is ever-protected by supernatural means by Almighty God, Who determines solely its outcomes according to His Supreme Divine Will; and not by any fallen man, even a holy man chosen by the Divine Will to be the Supreme Pontiff, Vicar of Christ. Thus, the solely needed divine protection of the Catholic Church has been universally entrusted to Saint Joseph, as its ever-constant defender, throughout the centuries, during the various periods of time that different men, both good and bad, have come and gone as holy father, the pope. And, indeed, Sacred Scriptures does reveal that one of those men, in the End Times, will choose to serve as a wilful servant of hell and an ambassador of satan, bringing about the prophesied “abomination of desolation”, with the final aim of fully destroying the Holy Christian Faith, and everyone and everything held dear in the Roman Catholic Church. Therefore, the pope is capable of falling and does fall finally in the last days of Holy Mother Church on earth.

Dearest ones, as you discern the authenticity of the heavenly messages found in the Book of Truth, given to 7th Messenger, Maria Divine Mercy, I want you to consider this question. If this is the period of days known as the End Times, that is very close to the fulfillment of the Apocalypse that has been prophesied in Sacred Scriptures, then, beloved ones, does it not make sense that Almighty God would try to save and warn and prepare His elect, His chosen ones, for the severe difficulties and dire challenges that they will be facing? As, truly, Sacred Scriptures counsels, Surely the Lord God does nothing, without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets” (Book of Prophet Amos, Chapter 3, verse 7).

Now, I am going to explain my rationale why any so-called “unapproval” by any member of the hierarchy of the Catholic Church about the Book of Truth and its visionary, Maria Divine Mercy, is faulty, unreliable, and untrustworthy. And why faithful believers may be permitted to read, discern, accept, and follow the body of heavenly messages for themselves.

First, the very gentle soul who wrote me about the Book of Truth, was very concerned that people who believe its contents may be excommunicated by the Roman Catholic Church. So, let me explain something important here. Recall, in Church history, there used to be a formal religious court, called the Inquisition, that used to put people on trial for various sacrilegious acts, including many acts of heresy, schism, and disobedience for undermining the Holy Catholic Church. However, not every person who has been accused, convicted, and even executed by the Inquisition, has truly been found “guilty” in the Holy Eyes of Almighty God. For example, there is the famous interrogation, trial, and execution, burned by the stake, of Saint Joan of Arc, who later has been recognized as a great heroine and Patroness Saint of both France and Europe. Also, the greatest Spanish mystic, Saint Teresa of Avila, at the end of her life, was accused and under investigation by the Inquisition, but she died, as God took her home to Heaven, before she could properly defend herself before a formal trial on earth.

The reason I speak about the Inquisition, is because it still exists, in some form, as that particular religious court function is performed by the oldest part of the Roman Curia at the Vatican, known today as, the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which is the body responsible for promulgating and defending Catholic doctrine. The Sacred Congregation is also the body responsible for investigating the private mystical revelations throughout the world, that are brought to its attention by the hierarchy of the Catholic Church. The Sacred Congregation is also responsible for handling any processes and proceedings for formal excommunications, which are then approved by the holy father, the pope. And, as a side-note, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger was the Prefect, head of the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, for more than two decades until he was chosen to become the holy father in 2005, selecting the papal name of Pope Benedict XVI for his holy pontificate.

Now, I want people to know that Canon Law is very complex, especially, regarding the matter of formal excommunication in the Roman Catholic Church. There are actually two penalty types of formal excommunication possible according to the religious law that governs members of the Catholic Church. According to Canon Law 1314, they are: (1) the penalty of ferendae sententiae, which binds and is imposed after a party is found guilty from a religious proceeding or trial. A famous, historical example of this type of excommunication is shown by Saint Joan of Arc, who was later acquitted of her guilty conviction by the Catholic Church. And (2) the penalty of latae sententiae, which is incurred ipso facto (automatically), once the delict (violation of law) is committed. A common, modern-day example of this type of excommunication involves abortion. Once a Catholic woman commits an act of voluntary, wilful abortion, she is automatically excommunicated, in a state of mortal disgrace, and unable to receive the Holy Sacraments in the Catholic Church. However, in the special case of abortion, the excommunication may be lifted by either a local bishop, or if he has delegated authority in his diocese, by a parish priest in Sacramental Confession. But, otherwise, the penalty of excommunication must be typically removed by the hierarchy, the holy father, the Pope of the Catholic Church.

Now, there are many fine rules, processes, and proceedings, that must be carried out exactly, in order for the formal excommunication of any person to be considered valid and lawful in the Catholic Church. Especially, regarding the excommunication penalty by ferendae sententiae, as it involves a formal court proceeding or trial, where the defendant party is presumed innocent until proven guilty. Canon Law must be carefully followed, so as to avoid any miscarriage of justice and to avoid the appearance of having a kangaroo court that does not abide by any just standard of the rule for law. Simply put, a declaration of formal excommunication is very grave, so the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith does not simply cast such harsh judgments upon people, until all facts and all defenses for innocence under Canon Law, are considered by the religious court.

Alright, I want to especially address here the penalty of latae sententiae, which is automatic excommunication, that is imposed in certain situations upon members of the Roman Catholic Church. This type of excommunication does not involve a religious proceeding or trial, as it is a penalty immediately incurred upon committing certain types of grave immoral misbehavior. Here, I want to fully answer the question if people who believe in the visionary, Maria Divine Mercy, and the heavenly messages in the Book of Truth, are automatically excommunicated by the Roman Catholic Church. Especially, as the heavenly messages infer and imply that Pope Francis (Bergoglio) is the false prophet of the Apocalypse (Book of Revelation, Chapter 13).

Alright, let’s examine the two relevant sections of Canon Law that opponents are indicating govern automatic excommunication of those individuals who believe in the Book of Truth and its visionary, Maria Divine Mercy:

Canon Law 1364 § 1 An apostate from the faith, a heretic or a schismatic incurs a latae sententiae excommunication.

Canon Law 751 Heresy is the obstinate denial or obstinate doubt after the reception of baptism of some truth which is to be believed by divine and Catholic faith; apostasy is the total repudiation of the Christian faith; schism is the refusal of submission to the Supreme Pontiff or of communion with the members of the Church subject to him.

Here, opponents are proposing that believers of the Book of Truth and its visionary, Maria Divine Mercy, are “schismatic”, incurring automatic excommunication, because they are creating a schism by refusing to acknowledge and submit to the authority of Pope Francis (Begoglio) as Supreme Pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church.

Beloved ones, the man known as Pope Francis (Bergoglio), who is acting as head of the Roman Catholic Church, is an IMPOSTOR, as he is NOT the legitimate Pope, the Vicar of Christ. As the posthumous testimony of Pope Benedict XVI has revealed, our dear holy father, Pope Benedict XVI, was the last, true, legitimate Pope, in apostolic succession from Saint Peter the Apostle, the first Pope, of the Roman Catholic Church. Pope Benedict XVI NEVER abdicated his authority and power as Supreme Pontiff, Vicar of Christ, as his “resignation” in 2013 was COERCED UNDER DURESS and the THREAT OF MURDER by corrupted infiltrators within the Holy See, the Vatican.

Dearest ones, such a coerced, forced “resignation” by Pope Benedict XVI, has NEVER been accepted as lawful in the Holy Eyes of Almighty God, Who Is Perfectly Just as Our Creator, the Divine Lawmaker. The coerced, forced “resignation” by Pope Benedict XVI was a “coup d’état” of the Holy See, by an well-organized freemasonry crime syndicate, called the St Gallen mafia, deeply embedded within the governance structure of the Roman Curia, the Vatican. The coup d’état then brought about an unlawfully convened Conclave by the College of Cardinals, that resulted in the illegal election of an illegitimate papal candidate, Pope Francis (Bergoglio), who had been groomed and preened for several years by the St Gallen mafia.

What is a “coup d’état” (or, “coup”)? A coup is a quick decisive action, often violent, that involves the illegal seizure of government, typically by assassination or forcible removal from office its top leaders. A coup involves the sudden overthrow or alteration of an existing government by a small group of people, usually, a small group of politicians or military generals, etc. Coup d’état is French for “stroke of the state” or “blow to the government.” In contrast, a “revolution” is an overthrow or repudiation and thorough replacement of an established government or political system by the people governed. A revolution involves a massive uprising of people, which may be violent or nonviolent in nature. A coup d’état is not a revolution, although they have the same political effect or outcome, the illegal replacement of those in governance and/or the governance system.

Now, I need to make a side-note to explain something significant and relevant here. Before Pope Benedict XVI was chosen to be the holy father in 2005, there were many prophecies swirling beforehand to different chosen messengers that the next pope after the holy death of saintly, Pope John Paul II, would be the “false prophet” of the Apocalypse. Obviously, that specific prophecy was postponed. As it was revealed to the visionary at Holy Love Ministries, that Papa God had great Mercy on the world and due to the ardent, heartfelt prayers of His faithful children, Papa God delayed its fulfillment by graciously enabling Pope Benedict XVI to be elected by the College of Cardinals. I share that fact, because in the aftermath of the 2005 Conclave, it has been revealed by anonymous testimony of different voting cardinals, that Francis (Bergoglio) was second runner-up, almost being installed as Vicar of Christ. This is significant to know, because Pope Benedict XVI knew the man who would likely be chosen as the next Vicar of Christ after his pontificate.

Also, I remind you all that Pope Benedict XVI, known as Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger before becoming the Vicar of Christ, was the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith for more than two decades, which is the religious body responsible for investigating various private mystical revelation with the Roman Catholic Church. Moreover, I remind you as Cardinal Ratzinger, he was a very close advisor and very trusted friend to saintly, Pope John Paul II, as he helped him to put into place certain election rules for the next Papal Conclave that would take place after Pope John Paul II’s death. Certain election rules that would hopefully make it harder so there would NOT be any usurping of illegal power within the College of Cardinals. And finally, I remind you all that as Prefect of the Sacred Congregation and dearest confidant to saintly, Pope John Paul II, that Pope Benedict XVI (Cardinal Ratzinger) was one of a handful of people who knew the COMPLETE Third Secret of Our Lady of Fatima (1917), both the revealed, publicized part and the hidden, unknown parts of the Third Secret.

Now, the reason these facts are significant and relevant, is because the imitate knowledge about the Third Secret of Fatima helped our dearly beloved holy father, Pope Benedict XVI, know what he needed to do regarding the murder and blackmail threats made against him in February 2013. As the Book of Truth to 7th Messenger, Maria Divine Mercy, reveals partially to world the hidden part of the Third Secret of Fatima that only Pope Benedict XVI and a handful of people actually knew. The Book of Truth reveals that the Third Secret is about the secret freemasonry mafia gaining control of the Holy See in the End Times. Moreover, the Third Secret speaks about a scenario where there would be two popes — one legitimate and one illegitimate — in the End Times.

Now, I share these facts with you, dearest ones, because knowledge of the Third Secret of Fatima helped to guide both saintly, Pope John Paul II, and dearest Pope Benedict XVI, in their governance of the Holy See, the Vatican. So, they both knew that they needed to put into place certain checks and balances in the voting rules for the next Papal Conclave. They also knew that they needed to have rules in place, where there might be a future scenario of two acting popes, possibly caused through some type of “forced retirement”, etc. And finally, when dearly beloved, Pope Benedict XVI, was confronted, facing murder and blackmail threats, he knew what needed to be done to keep the ongoing continuity of the Holy Christian Faith in Holy Mother Church. Pope Benedict XVI knew that it was acceptable to Heaven and the Divine Plan, that he “resign” publicly in 2013, entering into seclusion exiled on Vatican grounds, for the remainder of his holy pontificate on earth. That he would be the silent, suffering servant of God, in mystical union with Our Lord and Our Savior, Jesus Christ, Who truly suffered for all mankind on The Cross. The Third Secret of Fatima was the divine signpost pointing the way out for dearly beloved, Pope Benedict XVI, to avoid potentially the Greatest Schism of the Roman Catholic Church in 2013; as well as an assassination attempt on his mortal life.

Beloved ones, not only was the 2013 Conclave unlawfully convened, it has been rumored that there was a prohibited canvassing of votes among the electing cardinals, as well as other improprieties and irregularities according to Canon Law. And so, the election and papal installment of Francis (Bergoglio) happened after only two days of voting by the cardinals. Now, please understand, everything, every papal decision, every hierarchical appointment, made by Francis (Bergoglio), acting as Vicar of Christ, is ILLEGITIMATE and UNLAWFUL in the Holy Eyes of Almighty God. Everything that Francis (Bergoglio) has decided and enacted, as the “great pretender”, since his installment as head of the Catholic Church in 2013, has NO LEGAL STANDING before Almighty God. Furthermore, the Catholic Church cannot “go back in time” by accepting an unlawfully convened past Conclave that elected an illegitimate pope, by retroactively declaring the papal choice as lawful and all his papal decisions lawful, simply because the legitimate pope of the Catholic Church has since died. That is NOT how any JUST, FAIR, and EQUITABLE legal system works in the world. Especially when the illegitimate successor may be the SOURCE of the governmental overthrow by coup d’état, and may be the CAUSE of the previous legitimate leader’s untimely demise. (As the posthumous testimony of Pope Benedict XVI indicates that Francis (Bergoglio) may be the one who ordered the “hit” ending his earthly life).

Therefore, since the holy passage of Pope Benedict XVI, on December 31, 2022, which has been revealed by private mystical revelation to be, in fact, a case of holy death by martyrdom, the holy Chair of Saint Peter of the Roman Catholic Church, has been EMPTY and VACANT. There is NO legitimate Supreme Pontiff, NO Vicar of Christ, that is currently seated in the holy Chair of Saint Peter. The Roman Catholic Church has NO POPE at this present time. Heaven IS currently directly guiding the Roman Catholic Church on earth, under the Almighty Leadership and Divine Kingship of Our Lord, JESUS CHRIST, Himself. That is why the confidential documents written by Pope Benedict XVI, that were supposed to be published after his death but were burned by his enemies, called for a Conclave to be convened by the College of Cardinals. This is because the papal chair is empty and vacant, so a legitimate Supreme Pontiff, Vicar of Christ, must be chosen now, in order for the unceasing and uninterrupted continuity in the world of the Holy Christian Faith, established by Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in Holy Mother Church almost 2,000 years ago. NOTE: I will address this topic further in a future prophetic writing.

Hence, it is an ungrounded, unfounded, and baseless argument that believers of the Book of Truth and its visionary, Maria Divine Mercy, are “schismatic”, incurring automatic excommunication, by the refusal to acknowledge and submit to the authority of Francis (Bergoglio) as Supreme Pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church. Francis (Bergoglio) has NO lawful authority for faithful Catholics to submit to, as he is not canonically elected as the Vicar of Christ. He is an IMPOSTOR, improperly dressed in white papal vestments, posing for the role that he has NOT under Heaven and on earth.

Now, I will state that within the pages of the Book of Truth given to 7th Messenger, Maria Divine Mercy, that God does foretell that there will be many formal excommunications happening in the future of the Catholic Church. Now, I may not recall this exactly, but I remember reading in a heavenly message that one day, the Book of Truth, will be placed on the Sacred Altar of the Church, and that 7th Messenger, Maria Divine Mercy, will be formally excommunicated in that manner by the Roman Catholic Church. And I do recall reading that there will come a future day, where almost half of all Catholic clergy in the world — about 200,000 holy men — will be formally excommunicated by the Roman Catholic Church on the day that the “abomination of desolation” is formally instituted in Holy Mother Church. As almost half of the holy priesthood will choose to continue to serve Papa God and remain loyal to His Beloved Son, Jesus Christ, in the Most Holy Eucharist, the Blessed Sacrament of the Sacred Altar. So, about 200,000 holy priests will need to be protected by the Underground Church, when this prophecy is fulfilled. Obviously, though, none of these divine prophecies about formal excommunications have happened yet.

Likewise, the so-called “concerned” Christians, and other like-minded people, like to point out that the Archbishop of the Catholic Archdiocese of Dublin, Ireland, issued a Public Statement supposedly “condemning” the visionary, Maria Divine Mercy, and the heavenly messages found in the Book of Truth. Here is the words from the Archdiocesan Statement released on April 16, 2014 (


“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.”

Dearest ones, I present the words of the Archdiocesan Statement to you all, so you may discern carefully for yourselves whether you would like to believe in or not the heavenly messages found in the Book of Truth. However, for myself, this Archdiocesan Statement remains unconvincing and untrustworthy for two main reasons. First reason, unfortunately, today, there are many unholy priests, including many unholy Bishops and unholy Cardinals, that are unfaithful, unprincipled, and undependable in executing their vocational role and episcopate office within Holy Mother Church.

Sadly, many of these priestly men hold corrupted beliefs, showing an immoral character, witnessed by both their bad deeds and bad words, as well as their lack of courage and integrity to stand up of Our Lord, Jesus Christ, against the wicked counterculture that they are living in. And when I see such unholy men working actively against the beautiful traditions of our Catholic faith, by promoting a more secularist agenda within religious circles, it is heartbreaking. Just as Our Holy Mother, Mary, warned would take place in the future Church at Akita, Japan (1973). Our Lady stated: “The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres…churches and altars sacked; the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord. The demon will be especially implacable against souls consecrated to God.”

Dearest ones, this Archdiocesan Statement insists that “many of the texts [found in the Book of Truth] are in contradiction with Catholic theology”. Yet, for instance, if a person actually reads the Book of Truth, he or she will notice that there are moral condemnations on the mortal sins of homosexuality, gay “marriage”, and abortion. In contrast, it is these exact, same hot topics of homosexuality, gay “marriage”, and abortion that the Archbishop of Dublin, the Most Reverend Diarmuid Martin, has shown very disgraceful diocesan mismanagement, lack of leadership, and lack of moral character during his tenure in the episcopate (2004-2021). Early on, after he was installed as the Archbishop, Most Reverend Diarmuid Martin, said that being gay should not prevent a man from becoming a Catholic priest. Quote: “You don’t write off a candidate for the priesthood simply because he is a gay man” (2005). And sadly, it just gets worse over the years, as his tenure as Archbishop of Dublin is replete with many failures in leadership. So many failures to lead against the wicked counterculture, both in gay unions and in abortion, which both became lawful in Ireland under his tenure, and were warned about in the Book of Truth to 7th Messenger, Maria Divine Mercy.

Sadly, Archbishop of Dublin, the Most Reverend Diarmuid Martin, has a compromised Christian faith (we must pray for him). A compromised Christian faith, essentially being “lukewarm”, which Our Lord, Jesus Christ, has stated in Sacred Scriptures, that He will “vomit” such “lukewarm” unbelievers from His holy Mouth (Book of Revelation, Chapter 3, verse 16). And knowing that there are so many like-minded Catholic cardinals and bishops, who compromise their Christian faith, yet, people look up to them for guidance regarding Heaven’s messages given to different chosen messengers today… Honestly, I, “a soul”, question myself, wondering why should I put any faith and trust in these insincere shepherds, who are not acting in the best fatherly interests for tendering the flock entrusted to their care? Why should I put any faith and trust in these insincere shepherds for their supposedly “superior” discernment of Heaven’s messages today? When such insincere shepherds demonstrate no strong foundation in our Catholic faith, lacking any personal, basic understanding of authentic Catholic theology? Such insincere shepherds may be in a “teaching” role, as part of the episcopate, but they clearly are not “real” teachers according to the authentic doctrines and dogmas of our Holy Catholic Faith, taught by Our Lord, Jesus Christ.

The second reason, that I reject the Archdiocesan Statement supposedly “condemning” the Book of Truth and its visionary, Maria Divine Mercy, is because there was NO formal diocesan investigation into the authenticity of the heavenly messages. Again, there are formal steps, rules, processes, and proceedings, involved in doing a proper investigation of a chosen messenger and his or her body of heavenly messages within the Catholic Church. Simply put, a bishop cannot arbitrarily issue a public statement such as this, without a thorough official investigation, which typically warrants years of ongoing theological and background studies concerning the alleged messages, and includes many psychological, medical, and scientific tests on the supposed visionary. None of this was done, regarding the Book of Truth and its visionary, Maria Divine Mercy. Truly, we do not even know if the real identity of Maria Divine Mercy is the certain woman claimed to be living in the Archdiocese of Dublin, Ireland. Thus, the Archbishop of Dublin may not even have the canonical authority to make such a far-reaching public statement stating its disapproval of the heavenly messages, that carries overarching jurisdictional authority among faithful believers in other Catholic dioceses. The Archdiocesan Statement is faulty, unreliable, unconvincing, and untrustworthy.

Beloved ones, I have presented here several of my personal reasons for believing in 7th Messenger, Maria Divine Mercy, and the heavenly messages found in the Book of Truth. I have presented only a handful, the major reasons, that I find the visionary to be credible and worthy of belief and the heavenly messages itself to be worthy of your consideration and discernment. Including the many Heaven-inspired prayers, litanies, and devotions given to Maria Divine Mercy, that are very timely and urgently needed to fight against the many social evils targeted against Christians and God. Both today in these End Times, but also during the heightened wickedness that will be manifesting during the harsh days of the Great Tribulation of the Apocalypse, under the coming brutal reign of the antichrist.

However, I want you all to know that although I am in favor of believing in 7th Messenger, Maria Divine Mercy, and the Book of Truth, at the same time, I recognize that the heavenly messages are not perfect in their delivery. Meaning, the heavenly messages are private mystical revelation. They are NOT to be held at the same level of credibility and worthiness as public revelation, as Sacred Scriptures, including the Gospel, as being “breathed” forth by Almighty God, where every word is both inspired and chosen by God, being perfectly recorded in the texts of the Holy Bible.

Dearest ones, I say this to you all, because I know that there are a few errors — NOT having to do Catholic theology — but having to do with certain prophetic statements allegedly attributed to Our Lord, Jesus Christ. For instance, in the Book of Truth, Our Lord supposedly states that the mission of having refuges is not of divine-origin or part of the Divine Plan in the End Times. However, I know that such a blanket statement cannot be coming from Our Lord, because refuges during the Great Tribulation IS a HUGE part of the Divine Plan. As the safe havens and refuges are part of the Great Exodus, in order to safely protect God’s precious children, the Remnant Faithful, from martyrdom under the antichrist and for them to be able to physically survive to the very end of the Apocalypse, so they may live in the Glorious Era of Peace (Book of Revelation, Chapter 20). I am also well-aware that satan and the devils of hell have the corrupted angelic powers to manipulate what people hear from others, including heavenly visitors. This is because human speech and human thought can be very slow, so words can be both changed, switched out, and spoken over, etc., by use of angelic powers. Personally, I have witnessed this spiritual gift of angelic power used both by the holy angels of Heaven and by the devils of hell, in my physical presence, in different battles of spiritual warfare, as well as the spiritual gift of mind confusion by both the holy angels and the devils. There are, in fact, many ways that human hearing, human thoughts, and human words, can be interfered with by angelic powers, both good and bad.

This is why, dearest ones, the gift of discernment of spirits is so critical to be developed by everyone, especially, when considering any body of heavenly messages. Because, even if you believe in the veracity and authenticity of a particular chosen messenger, it is still vitally necessary to discern each given heavenly message on its own merits, and to even further discern by each sentence and even by individual words in such messages. No person has perfect discernment of spirits, where he or she writes down perfectly given messages — verbatim — from Heaven, or receives perfectly divinely inspired thoughts to write down. Mistakes can and do crop up from time to time, as God is helping each chosen messenger to grow in their faith and trust and to develop their mystical gifts. Furthermore, God does NOT want people to believe that any body of heavenly messages or mystical writings, is ON PAR, with the Holy Bible or the Gospels, which are clearly, in their own OWN UNIQUE CLASS of divinely inspired writings for God’s precious children on earth.

Finally, it is important to recognize, as a person is discerning the heavenly messages in the Book of Truth, that prophecies CAN and DO CHANGE over time. Especially, in the past decade that the Book of Truth has been available for people to read and consider. As I have stated before, in other writings, prophecies can change for three reasons: one, the free will of mankind reacting to the given prophecies; two, the power of prayer, that allows God to use grace to change bad prophecies towards a better outcome; and three, the invisible machinations of hell among fallen mankind, who exert invisible control over willing minions, in order to manipulate behaviors towards their evil end goals. As hell certainly listens to Heaven-sent prophecies, and accordingly adjusts their evil agenda to achieve maximum damage under the cloak of hiddenness and darkness. So, yes, divinely given prophecies can and do change over time, therefore, people need to keep that principle in mind, especially, when discerning the veracity of any body of alleged heavenly messages. Understanding that principle also helps to keep people from becoming disappointed and falling away in disbelief, especially, when divinely given prophecies go unfulfilled or happen differently from expectations. As Papa God Is always making adjustments to His Divine Plan, so His overall objectives for salvation history are ultimately achieved.

Dearly beloved ones, I sincerely hope that this public statement about the two private revelations that I feature on this prophecy blog, MaryRefugeOfSouls, will be helpful to you all. That this public statement will help you all to discern positively both the Book of Truth given to 7th Messenger, Maria Divine Mercy; as well as the Posthumous Testimony of Pope Benedict XVI given to a very pious cloistered nun living in Colombia. I also want you all to know that despite the lack of hierarchical approval regarding the Book of Truth, there are in fact many good, holy priests who believe in the body of heavenly messages. Some of them actively participate in the current ministry of Maria Divine Mercy, which involves supporting the online global and regional prayer groups, known as Jesus to Mankind, and the Crusade of Prayers. Moreover, I have a special webpage on this prophecy blog, MaryRefugeOfSouls, that is dedicated to priests seeking more information about the Book of Truth, which has gotten several hundreds of document downloads, during this past decade, of the particular heavenly messages and divinely inspired prayers meant for the use by the clergy. So, yes, there are many good men within the ranks of the holy priesthood, who are becoming more and more aware of Heaven’s messages today, including the Book of Truth, which I consider to be a unique treasure for the Remnant Faithful. As its holy words show how much Papa God tenderly cherishes His precious children, letting us know how much He deeply cares about our spiritual, moral, and physical welfare on earth. May you be fully blessed in your discernment of spirits.

God bless you, my dearest brothers and sisters in Christ.

I love you,
A Soul
