About the Author

<div>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.</div>

The revelations that our Lord Jesus Christ allowed to the Venerable [soon to be saint] Anna Katharina Emmerich provides the reader with as close an insight as possible of what our Lord and Saviour did for all of us...by his dying in the cross is that we live...something that more times than none we seem to forget by the actions we follow in our daily life.
I can only hope that my brothers and sisters in Christ, once they read this book, go out and spread the word of the greatest sacrifice of all times....he died for us, for our sins.
The writings of Anna will bring a more closer relationship with our saviour. Read the book, its wonderfull.
I cannot recommended enough. May God Bless you all.

Format: Paperback
Jesus Christ's Passion, death, and resurrection is time's defining moment. Its events, retold in all four Gospels, became life's purpose for millions who in turn told it to the world. Each person hearing or reading it would have to accept or reject it, living by that decision. But no one could be the same after knowing it.

That's why Anne Catherine Emmerich's visions of the final 12 hours of Christ's life and love, compelling and powerful as they are, are ultimately ancillary. Scripture accounts are as nourishing as terse: "But these have been written so that you may believe Jesus is the Christ..." But this simple German nun, devoted to the Blessed Sacrament and allowed to vicariously receive some of Christ's mystical pains and wounds, was allowed this chilling, exhausting retelling.

Those aware of "The Passion" as inspiring Mel Gibson's landmark 2003 film, and thinking his film graphic, will learn from this book. Sr. Emmerich's goal, or God's goal through her, was bringing the reader as close to Jesus and Mary's deep, shared love and physical pain as any written work could other than the Gospel. The book is separated into daily meditations of a few pages each (perfect for Lenten devotions), walking deliberately and painfully through Christ's interminable suffering with overpowering detail. It is meant to be over the top, to bring a reader to tears, guilt, amazement, and repentance.

It's for fault of familiarity we cannot read the original Gospels and see the events and characters in as rich detail, with the character motivations Sr. Emmerich provides. But not one word conflicts with the Gospels: Judas, the Pharisees, and Pilate are more villainous for the extra words about them, with Satan the ultimate force of evil in battle with Christ. (Sr.

Sister Anne Catherine Emmerich (1774-1824) was a mystic, an ecstatic, and a lot more. "The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ" was written with the help of a poet. If you have never heard of this book, then know that sister Emmerich had visions, stigmas, and other supernatural gifts. She was given the ability to see the past, and, for this book, the Passion of Christ, as well as other related events. While this may seem highly dubious to many, even the CIA and others have used psychics and mediums to "see" in the past, and that with faultless result. It is not the place here to argue in favour of these things, however.

Mel Gibson used this book for his famous movie, and reading it, you understand why. The book is surprisingly full of details and things that were afterwards confirmed by scientists and historians. I don't know which things exactly as I haven't done research on that, but there is so much in the book that could be confirmed/proved wrong that were a historian to work on the book, he'd find a lot of material.

The Gospels don't contain very much about the Passion, by which I mean that details aren't given and that they're all fairly concise about this episode. With Emmerich's account of the Passion, you can flesh it out with this stupendous writings. Reading this, you will have a fresher, and certainly more accurate (in that it's much richer), sense of the ordeal that the Passion was.

I strongly recommend it to anyone who is interested in the Passion, and to any Christian who'd like to know more about his Saviour's sufferings. The book is absolutely splendid, with a hardcover with beautiful leather, a ribbon to mark your page, etc. This is to be expected with Baronius, and I wasn't disappointed.

I found the book an amazing treasure and have read it twice; once before I saw Gibson's movie, and once after. It is a fantastic companion. I cannot recommend it enough.
I find it even more amazing that the negative reviews, especially those who found the book anti-semitic, were written after the movie's opening (Feb. 25, 2004). I have to wonder if those reviewers have actually read the book. My guess is that they have not.

"We Adore oh Christ and Praise You because by Your Holy Cross You have Redeemed the World." I received this book via Kindle at a bargain price of .99c....Sister Emmerich's detailed account of Our Lord's suffering is shocking and humbling. It is at times so hard to read because of the graphic details of the torture that Our Lord went through. This book should give the reader a complete grasp and understanding of the suffering that Our Lord endured for us so that death could be conquered. (It shows his total surrender and obedience to The Father) What also stood out for me was Jesus' constant prayer for his torturers as He endured the most shocking tortures. After reading Sister Emmerich's account, the phrase in the Aposstle's Creed "And He suffered under Pontius Pilate" has a deeper understanding for me.
