Book 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirtatonal 12 July 2011
I found this book 'unputdownable'. It brought so much to life for me. The detail of Our Lady's life was magical. At one point - the Magi - I got a bit bogged down but carried on. I will never participate in the Christmas liturgies in the same way again, I know so much more about the Nativity and feel I know Mary so much better. A real lifechanger.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Life of the Blessed Virgin Mary 29 Aug. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read this book in Hard Copy and loaned it out only not to have it returned. Never again.
It is a remarkable book for lovers of The Blessed Virgin Mary it fills in alot of the blanks in the intimate life of the Holy Family. Which increases a more robust faith in the belief of the contents being read about.
A 'Must' for all devotees of The Virgin Mother.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Intriguing Book 13 Jan. 2012
By Kokino
Format:Kindle Edition
A book which is intriguing and at times very moving. The details of the visions are splendid and there is an authenticity that is captivating. Unfortunately, this is a very tradional view point - much of the book reinforces the legends that surround Mary and her life and which have no sound basis. If we take the Bible (although Mary also 'appears' in the Koran etc), it actually gives us very little info about Mary and her life or her family. One curious aspect that really stands out - Mary is described as having 'red gold hair'. This is very unlikely - although not impossible. Such touches cast doubt over the visions which have inspired the book. But then again - how do we know? ....

I found this book both inspiring on one hand and disconcerting on the other. The detail seemed to be almost too great. There were things that though believed at the time of the visions are now known to not be so and the account of the soul of the virgin Mary being infused at the quickening as if life really began when the mother felt the baby move really made me wonder about the whole thing. Some things explain what was previously a contradiction. I have mixed feelings about the book though Catherine is a revered seer and the film 'The passion of the Christ' was based on her relelations.
