Product Description

Product Description

NOTE: This edition has a linked "Table of Contents" and has been beautifully formatted (searchable and interlinked) to work on your Amazon e-book reader and your ipod e-book reader.

Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich (German: Anna Katharina Emmerick, September 8, 1774 - February 9, 1824) was a Roman Catholic Augustinian nun, stigmatic, mystic, visionary and ecstatic.

On October 3, 2004 Anne Catherine Emmerich was beatified by Pope John Paul II.

As in all such cases, the question of her visions was set aside, and her cause adjudicated solely on the basis of her own personal sanctity and heroic virtue.

This book on the life of the Blessed Virgin Mary was the result of visions seen by Sister Anne Catherine Emmerich, with notes taken by Clemens Brentano.

3.0 out of 5 stars Information Not Authentic Jan. 16 2012
By Nita - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book is written in detailed day to day happenings with the Virgin Mary and her family. The book isn't written with the kind of information I'm used to reading on other visionaries. I decided to research information on Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich and found that the book has not been approved by the Catholic Church as accurate and authentic. She was, infact, a very holy woman and did receive visions; however, the information states that, "The authenticity of Brentano's writings has been questioned and critics have characterized the books as "conscious elaborations by a poet" and a "well-intentioned fraud" by Brentano". Apparently Brentano spoke a different dialect and could not transcribe Blessed Anne's information immediately and had to wait until he went home. Brentano did not complete his editing for publication until 10 years after Blessed Anne's death. If you'd like to review more information, you can go to [...]

5.0 out of 5 stars I have been so blessed by reading this book Dec 22 2013
By G. Mailloux - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My love and appreciation for Mary and Joseph have abounded since reading this book. Although the visions and writings of blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich have not yet been approved by the church, I find this couple's trials and joys, blessings and misfortunes, as well as the simple trust in almighty God to be most inspiring to my own faith. So, whether it is a work of fiction or true inspiration, I have been blessed by the account of their lives.
I read this book during Advent, as preparation for Christmas. It really helped me enjoy -even more- the visits by the shepherds, the 3 kings, Mary's mother Anne, the prophets Simeon and Anna. It's as if I were there, present for the birth of our Savior. And what a blessing that was!

    I myself had today a vision of the Blessed Virgin who came to me and told me, among other things, that whoever recited with love and devotion on the afternoon of this day nine Ave Marias in honor of her nine months sojourn in her mothers womb and of her birth, continuing this devotion for nine days, would give the angels nine flowers each day for a bouquet which they would receive in heaven and present to the Blessed Trinity, to obtain favor for the suppliant. &quote;
