November 16, 2013 AM – NEW REVELATIONS – Developing
Since Nov. 8, 2010, a woman identifying herself as Maria Divine Mercy, a Catholic messenger from God and the Last Prophet, has posted nearly 1,000 messages from Jesus, the Virgin Mary and God the Father on the Website TheWarningSecondComing.com. She has nearly 35,000 international Facebook followers and dozens of worldwide geographically-local Facebook sites. The main FB site, Jesus to Mankind, shows an image of a smiling Jesus as messages report of cataclysmic global devastation and Satanic influences leading to the end times and schismatic separation of her followers from the institutional church. MDMers, as her devoted followers are known – possibly numbering hundreds of thousands – have turned into a cult-like mass of sincere, truth-seeking believers who have generated plenty of formal reaction from Catholic hierarchy, religious commentators and theologians.
She has passionate advocates and adversaries. She has averaged four visions a week for three years that repeat prophetic warnings from a hundred years-worth of seers, and adds lots of her own to the mix, creating a worldwide discussion-frenzy and divisiveness within communities and families, split for or against. Her internet site ranks as the finest-looking bunch of Web pages for any prophet since…well…ever. She has marketing skills!
But nothing is known of her identity. Until now.
PR GIRL GETS TAGGED
A mosaic has formed that leads to the door step of Mary Carberry, 58, of Dublin, Ireland, who does business under her maiden name of Mary McGovern. She has four children. Two have worked for her firm, McGovernPR, including her daughter Sarah Carberry, 28. The 27-year-old company, McGovernPR, has won international awards for its skill in marketing products and ideas. Other Carberry companies are CultureLink, headed by her husband, John Carberry, and Digital Future Link, headed by Sarah. Mary, John and their adult son live in Muldowney Court, MalahideCounty, Dublin, Ireland.
DEVOTEE OF SEER JOE COLEMAN
Mary Carberry was a follower of the Irish medium/psychic Joe Coleman who began receiving visions in 2009. A year later, the online publication IrishCentral.com headlined a story, “Knock guru predicts vision following documentary debut.” Author Cathy Hayes wrote, “Before his most recent trips and visitations at Knock, Coleman worked as a healer. He ran spiritual development courses and gave clairvoyant readings before the revenue commissioners started looking into his finances. Though he was charging €40 a session for clairvoyant readings he insisted that he never charged for any kind of information to do with his visions of the Virgin Mary.”
Carberry was instrumental in promoting Coleman in broadcast and print media, promoted [wrote?] his book The Message, and maintained his Web site. It is believed she wrote a letter to Catholic Theologian Ronald Conte on Nov. 1, 2010, defending Coleman and claiming, “I am the second visionary. We both see our Lady as well as her beloved son Jesus Christ.” She made a prediction later repeated by MDM: The Tribulation has already started. The second half starts at the end of 20-12/beginning of 2013.” The correspondence is signed only “Mary” and adds, “I can’t give you my surname unfortunately.”
On the seventh day, Nov. 8, Maria Divine Mercy [MDM] emerged from anonymity to…more anonymity to receive her first official “vision” and by Feb. 2011 a slickly designed Web site called thewarningsecondcoming.com went “live.” As with Mary’s letter to Conte, the newer visionary repeats the command from the Virgin Mary that the messages from heaven be published. Since MDM emerged, Coleman says he has not seen Mary Carberry, though his current website publishes her name in a notice for prayer meetings.
CONNECTING THE DOTS
There are more connections between the names McGovern – the business woman – and Carberry – the visionary. The Irish “Independent” newspaper published this story on July 24, 2010: “An e-commerce initiative launched yesterday and aimed at the 44 million Irish-Americans has pulled off a coup by getting the backing of US internet giant AOL. Ireland-usa.com has been set up by a company called CultureLink which is owned by public relations adviser Mary McGovern and her husband John Carberry.“
The formation of CultureLink may have saved the Carberrys from bankruptcy. A few months earlier, Dec. 8, 2009, the Irish Independent newspaper reported of a couple about to their home for falling behind on payments of their $670,000 [US] mortgage. The Building Society was seeking to re-possess the €850,000 [$1.4 million] home. ”[Barrister Ann Lawlor] said John and Mary Carberry, of Muldowney Court, Malahide, Co Dublin, had not kept up monthly repayments of €5,217 [$6,991 US] for the past 10 months and were in arrears of more than €50,000 [$67,000].” The court denied the repossession.
MDM’s visions are published, as commanded, in three volumes called the Book of Truth, by Coma Books whose only apparent products are the MDM line of merchandise. Add a fourth volume for prayers. Visa and MasterCard accepted. To assure the company’s lock on income from published distribution of the messages, Coma Books copyrights the content. Jesus speaks; MDM profits. There is additional legal language protecting publication of the messages: “In no event are you permitted to publish, distribute or otherwise reproduce in any format any of the content or copies of the content supplied to you or which appears on the Coma Books shares the same address as Trumpet Publishing Ltd, formed by Sarah Carberry [majority interest] and Breffni Cully, 60. A blogger has identified Cully as the same Joseph Gabriel who conducted and spoke at MDM workshops in Canada and the US during late summer/fall 2013, while associates made cash-only book sales. If true, the camera-shy Cully – recording devices and photos were forbidden from workshops – would have reason to change his identity to conceal his business relationship with Carberry that would link her to the visionary, Maria Divine Mercy. So, we can connect Mary Carberry to Sarah Carberry to Trumpet Publications to Breffni Cully to Joseph Gabriel to the visionary MDM.
Sarah no longer owns Trumpet Publishing. In her place is Heinrich Martin Roth, 69, of Koln, Germany. Roth maintains German-language online book sales for…the visionary messages of MDM as contained in the Coma Books-published Book of Truth! So, we connect Mary Carberry to Sarah Carberry to Trumpet Publications to Heinrich Roth to Coma Books to the visionary MDM.
Coma Books and Trumpet Publishing Ltd are located at Block 4, HarcourtCenter, Harcourt Street, Dublin, which is also the same identical contact address for TheWarningSecondComing.com, the Maria Divine Mercy Website. It’s a small world.
McGovern’s marketing skills were noted in an article published in the Irish Business and Leadership journal in December 2009 that announced a new online service provided by her company. Mary McGovern remarks how skillful online content can deliver “stickiness by engaging readers on issues they care about…we produce content that stimulates online and offline debate. The key objective is to attract repeat visitors to a company’s website.”
A year later a woman concealing her identity under the name Maria Divine Mercy demonstrates an uncanny online ability to engage readers on issues they care about. With lots of “stickiness” to keep them coming back for more. And claims she’s receiving near-daily messages from a talking drawing of Jesus who tells her she is the last prophet. And 100,000 people say, “Amen.” This may be the most remarkable textbook-study exercise in effective marketing and public relations in history.
In June 2013, three years after Mary Carberry separated herself from the medium Joe Coleman, Coleman received this email: [stet] ”I have read a lot about Maria Divine Mercy recently. She hides behind her false title and word is out it’s Mary Carberry. She is being heavily associated with you..can you confirm any truth in this?”
Coleman responded, [stet] “Yes this is true, it is all over the internet, I have not seen or heard of her [Mary] in three years now, but I pray for her that she will turn back to God, the devil works in many ways to deceive people and keep them from the truth, any way I am good so far have to try stay in the state of grace, thank you for your concern I send you Mothers love and Blessings, joe Coleman peace by yours amen.”
A contributor to the Facebook page SafeHarbour, for recovering MDM followers, reports that Mary McGovern’s [Carberry] online LinkedIn photo was shown to Joe Coleman who confirmed that the photo was a younger Mary Carberry. [LinkedIn is a social network site for business professionals. Mary lists among her special interests, “...reading, especially knife-edge thrillers.”]
A breakthrough revelation of MDM’s identity “went viral” since its posting Nov. 1, just 15 days ago. The detailed letter, written by someone with Carberry family contacts, identified Mary Carberry as Maria Divine Mercy. The extent of personal information in the message makes a credible case for its authenticity. Researchers contributing to this story know her personally. The author writes that Mary never had visions until she met Joe Coleman.
[stet:] ”Joe Coleman’s infestation definitely spilled onto Mary Carberry and soon she too began to have visions. In fact a number of people associated with this medium, Joe Coleman began to have visions including Keith who was killed in a car accident. If people are not in the State of Grace and start associating with mediums, false prophets, well then it is no surprise that they too become infested with the demonic which often leads to visions, prophecies etc but they are not from God, they are totally FALSE.”
Is Mary McGovern Carberry – the international marketing/public relations award-winner – the real MDM? Or the Personna concealing one or more other “visionaries”?
“PRIEST” ADDS SUPPORT – Added Nov. 16
MDM’s visions earned credibility early-on from Facebook postings contributed by Fr. Marie-Paul, a Catholic priest. He was literate, persuasive, and provided convincing theological support. But Fr. Marie-Paul would slip references to other messages not so believable, tying MDM with prior visionaries including condemned deceased seer Veronica Leuken, from Bayside, New York, and the Australian cultist William Kamm, who does business as “the Little Pebble.” Kamm is serving prison time for crimes against two underage girls and is not scheduled for release until 2015. Kamm himself aggressively promotes MDM’s messages on his Website, of which there is little else left, and on YouTube videos through an intermediary. He claims he will be the last Pope.
Kamm-the-Pebble, 63, has a newer name, William Castelia, which will help establish a post-prison identity that separates him from the subject of the book, A Wolf Among the Sheep: Australian Cult Leader William Kamm. He ceased reporting his own messages from heaven by the time MDM began her visionary career. As an active visionary, though, his messages remarkably paralleled the messages from Maria Divine Mercy. Grow your own food, money will be worthless, buy gold and silver, the end is near.
And as to Fr. Marie-Paul, well, he wasn’t really a priest after all, but rather a member of the Kamm-the-Pebble cult. When Facebook followers increasingly suspected fraud, the administrator of the official MDM Facebook page, Jesus to Mankind, sought advice directly from Maria Divine Mercy who spoke directly to Jesus who said, directly, the fake priest’s contribution was “important.” Maria emails, “[Fr. Marie-Paul] added great credibility to the messages. I was sad to see him go and I miss his posts.” The fake priest continues to be “important” to Maria promoting her messages to the world under different names.
Yes, we have a copy of the email.
UNWEAVING THE WEB – Added Nov. 16
The story of the future Pope and convicted rapist William Kamm, whose heavenly messages pre-visioned those of MDM, now takes an interesting and curious person-to-person journey to the House of Carberry. But to get there, we must go back to the confident and handsome 60-year-old who spoke at the Maria Divine Mercy workshops under the assumed name of Joseph Gabriel.
Breffni Cully, a retired dentist, business man, and cyclist enthusiast [“the flying dentist”], spoke excitedly of the visions of the Irish seer, bringing with him the print of a drawing of Jesus that talks to the visionary. He is engaged in a number of business ventures, including Pharmanex, a division of the multi-level marketing company Nu Skin, and Trumpet Publishing Limited, with whom he shared ownership with Mary Carberry’s daughter, Sarah. At least once, he got into a little legal trouble. In 2007 the Inishowen News of Donegal, Ireland, reported that Cully was involved in a “medical card scheme” that earned him $144,504 [US]. With all his relationships, personal and business, he lists only two “friends” on his Google+ page. His estate manager and Christine Lammerman.
Christine Lammermann is the former mother-in-law of the Little Pebble, William Kamm! What are the odds that Kamm would have a relative who is a personal friend of a business partner of the Carberrys?
THE LAMMERMANN LINK – Added Nov. 16
In 1991 Lammermann and daughter Bettina immigrated to Australia from Munich, Germany, to join the Little Pebble’s [Kamm’s] commune. At its peak, the order Kamm founded in 1983 had an estimated 500,000 followers worldwide. Bettina, at 17, became Kamm’s “secret mystical wife” and “Queen of the Cult.” She gave birth to six of Kamm’s 16 children [from 8 “wives” – all by immaculate conception] before “divorcing” him in 2006, a year into his prison term. Bettina, now 40, has moved far from the maddening crowd. Her mother remained in the commune for another seven years and, until recently, used its address on Koloona Drive, Cambewarra, New South Wales, for her internet marketing business.
Lammerman, an online marketing entrepreneur of natural health and other products, is also an organizer of the Catholic “Our Lady of Refuge” organization inspired by German Bishop Ralph Napierski who unsuccessfully attempted to participate in the conclave to elect the current Pope. Napierski isn’t a real bishop, but he dresses and acts as one. In mid-November 2011, Maria Divine Mercy’s visions began to appear on Lammermann’s Website with the same frequency as they appear at the official MDM Website. But there is no attribution to MDM or reference or link to her site. At one point, Lammermann found it necessary to specifically deny claims she wrote the messages. In email Lammermann seems to admit to the authorship of one MDM prayer, now numbering 125. In reference to prayer number 31 she comments, “I hope you like what I wrote.”
We know from audio interviews she’s given, by her admission and evidence of accent, that the “Last Prophet” Maria Divine Mercy is an Irish business woman with children. But is she getting a little help from her friends? Better yet, is this a brokered marketing scheme between an Australian cultist, an Irish businessman, and a marketing/pr firm, all seeking to advance their own interests?
What a tangle web we weave.
MDM’s messages from heaven have been publicly condemned by Catholic bishops in several countries where the cult has evidenced itself. But the Irish bishops, who have jurisdiction over Mary, have not publicly spoken. And the silence is puzzling. But the Nov. 1 writer, cited above, says Dublin Archbishop Diarmuid Martin knows of the woman and assigned an Irish exorcist priest to meet her and examine her messages. She writes, “He told her that her messages were not from God, that they were utterly FALSE.”
IS IT OVER YET?
Can the MDMers be convinced the scam is up? Or will these messages extend far into the future? The seers of Necedah, Wisconsin and later Bayside, New York, each reported visions for 20 years. Both condemned. There are hundreds of others. Some good; some not so good. Followers speak of the promotion of Catholic devotions, the emphasis on prayer, fasting, penance, recitation of the Rosary and the Divine Mercy Chaplet. There are more than 125 MDM prayers that form a Crusade of Prayer that circles the world. And it’s only three years old! This sure sounds like Jesus’ work. Or another diabolical trick to deceive faithful and sincere truth-seekers. There is honey in the trap.
The financial stress the Carberrys endured evidenced by the threat of the loss of their home, and the social and business embarrassment, may have created an emotional foundation that pushed Mary to seek spiritual comfort. Perhaps Mary’s association with Joe Coleman suggested her own transcendental project. She had the in-family talent and international contacts to market to a world starved for spiritual clarity. I don’t believe Mary or Joe or other “seers” set out initially to deceive. The sincerity in the eyes of Joe Coleman kneeling in prayer wins hearts. The prayers and messages from those behind the curtain of Maria Divine Mercy capture minds and souls. The Irish – or Australian – “visionary” may have an authentic bridge from this side to the other, but it isn’t God talking. The dark forces are a wink away. The devil will embrace his enemy and betray his friends in the grand exercise of wickedness and entrapment.
We are told that in the end even the elect will be deceived. The time is ripe with befuddlement and desperate for leadership. For a time, I was convinced that these messages were authentic. But there were problems I kept dismissing. Contradictions. Harsh language. Even problems with sentence structure and punctuation! [Is no one checking these for grammar?] Forget the theological arguments: We live in an age dispossessed of doctrinal allegiance – at the highest levels! It is the person of Mary Carberry that speaks to the deceit. Mary and John have a beautiful, intelligent and talented family. Pray they are sheltered from harm as a consequence of these revelations. And that she comes clean soon.
It’s time to lift the curtain.
The author of this article lives in the United States and has no personal or business relationship with the Carberrys or any of the individuals named. In his quest to determine the genuineness of the messages, which more and more promoted a schismatic split from the Catholic Church, he discovered a cadre of courageous inquirers in many countries engaged in ongoing research into the mystery of the veiled woman. But there was no single document to tell the story until now. If you have new information, please add it to the comment box [requests for confidence will be respected] or post it at one of the Facebook pages devoted to assisting former MDMers. All comments are read. The date at top will change to indicate the addition of new information. This article should be understood as a compassionate gesture to those perpetuating these messages, and to those victimized by them. God Help Us All.
