A Catholic bishop has warned the faithful against a group whose prayer life, beliefs and teachings are based on “The Book of Truth”.
Bishop Gerardo Alminaza of San Carlos said that he never endorsed such group and the book by a woman who calls herself “Maria Divine Mercy” is not something to believe in.
“The message of Maria Divine Mercy is not to be taken seriously, discussed or distributed within the Diocese of San Carlos,” said Alminaza in a circular issued on April 15.
He said the book contains some teachings which are “very contrary” to the Catholic faith.
The author asserts to have predicted Pope Benedict’s resignation ahead.
She also claims he will be the last pope on earth, that the next pontiff is a false prophet, and that the Second Coming is about to occur.
“And adherence to such teachings would lead on to confusion and eventually being led astray to what our Magisterium upholds,” Alminaza said.
