UPDATE: April 16, 2014:
Official statement concerning Maria Divine Mercy from the Archdiocese of Dublin website:
The official statement from Archbishop Diarmuid Martin can be viewed on the Archdiocese of Dublin website here.
This writer was one of the many who had written His Excellency, Archbishiop Diarmuid Martin requesting that a formal public statement be made concerning 'Maria Divine Mercy' and the alleged heavenly messages that have been promulgated for the past several years, because the 'Messages' have been gaining quite a following, and so it was necessary for the faithful that the local Bishop judge the matter. And so this writer is grateful that the position of the Church on this matter has been officially declared.
Earlier (November 2013) the news broke out upon the Internet that the identity of the visionary known as "Maria Divine Mercy" was finally being revealed, thanks to the excellent investigative work of a several bloggers; most especially the article Maria Divine Mercy, the Woman Behind the Curtain by a investigative blogger named Saseen, along with another article by Ron Conte entitled "The Identity of Maria Divine Mercy."
Suffice it to say that the facts that have been revealed concerning Maria Divine Mercy, who as stated in the articles above is believed to be Mrs. Mary McGovern-Carberry, age 58, of Dublin Ireland and her Public Relations firm McGovernPR, seriously cast into doubt the alleged heavenly messages that are promulgated through her website "www.TheWarningSecondComing.com"
The webmaster would like to thank Janet Walton for providing the majority of the information in this exposé. -May God reward her for her efforts and bless her in her fervent pursuit of the Truth.
The numerous failed prophesies of Maria Divine Mercy
“…the False Prophet is preparing and is already present in the Vatican. But he hides his true façade very carefully.”
His electors are wolves in sheep’s clothing and are members of the secret Masonic and evil group led by Satan." -Message of April 12, 2012
The problem with this evil "Free Masonry" conspiracy theory is that it has been regurgitated over and over for literally over a century, yet there has never been any evidence whatsoever supporting any significant membership of Masons amongst Cardinals/Bishops throughout the Church...but oh yes, of course, we must remember it is a "secret" group consisting of the vast majority of the Cardinals---that is, enough "secret, evil Masonic" Cardinals to elect the new 'False Prophet'....Quite a conspiracy for sure!
They must not fret, because although the Crown of Thorns has descended on My Vicar, appointed by Me, Jesus Christ, to rule over My Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church, has been viciously ousted – I now come, at last, to bring you peace.
Well, almost a full year has since passed and not only do we very well know that Pope Francis is a true Pope, validly elected by the College of Cardinals, and Emeritus Pope Benedict (the alleged 'last True Pope') by his own admission WAS NOT 'viciously ousted'--for he himself openly and publicly proclaimed that he resigned freely and of his own will and desire, stating in writing:
For this reason, and well aware of the seriousness of this act, with full freedom I declare that I renounce the ministry of Bishop of Rome, Successor of Saint Peter. " -Pope Benedict, Feb. 11, 2013.
Really? This is all so ridiculous that it barely even falls into the realm of being remotely plausible, even for the most extreme conspiracy theorists.

With this said, this article has shown that some of the "messages" of M.D.M. are not in communion with Church teachings, and most especially a cause for concern is the fact that on numerous occasions she has essentially declared Pope Francis an "anti-pope" and positioning herself as the only true and authentic messenger of God.
It is therefore quite apparent that all Catholics should be very skeptical concerning Maria Divine Mercy and her messages, and should not buy her volumes being sold as "The Book of Truth", because doing so would financially support a work that attacks our current Pope.
While we await the formal judgement of the Church, we should consider that any alleged "heavenly message" that obviously contradicts the teachings of the Church would therefore make the whole of the alleged visions false, because the Church has declared that nothing should be found in any authentic private revelation that openly contradicts the teachings of the Church.
