Meet the Author


Anne Catherine Emmerich was born to poor parents at Westphalia, Germany in 1774. When she was twenty-eight years old she became an Augustinian nun at Dulmen, and apparently began to experience ecstasies as a result of spiritual favors. She received the Stigmata in 1813, confined to her bed, and reportedly convinced a vicar-general, Overberg, and three physicians of her sanctity. She later reported that she had seen visions of Christ and the souls in purgatory as a child, as well as a circular core with three sections representing the Trinity. She is the author of The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ, The Life of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Life of Jesus Christ and Biblical Revelations, and The Bitter Passion and the Life of Mary.

Anne Emmerich died on February 9, 1824 and was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 2004.

    an ideal adjuct to the Holy Bible

    Contains many astounding revelations that support our faith, yet are not contained in the Bible or in any other sacred literature. Includes a day-by-day account of the public life of Christ, plus a rendition of the lives of the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Joseph, St. John the Baptist, St. Anne and St. Joachim, plus many ancestors of Our Lord. Describes events from the creation of the world to the Apostles' early missionary work, plus the death of the Blessed Mother. Shows that the Church founded by Jesus Christ is the Catholic Church, identical in substance, and even in many details, with the Catholic Church of our times. Says the Egyptians falsified their calendar to make their nation appear older than it was. Says that the Holy Grail of the First Mass was the same chalice used by Melchisedech in his sacrifice of bread and wine. Says St. Peter worked more miracles than any other Apostle, also that he celebrated Mass exactly as Our Lord had done. A treasure trove of information obtainable from no other source. Seems an act of God these visions were permitted and recorded.
