Product Description

  • The Life of the Blessed Virgin Mary
  • Beloved, renowned private visions of a holy woman
  • Learn about the Blessed Virgin Mary's childhood & her life as the mother of Jesus
  • Deeply inspiring


The Life of the Blessed Virgin Mary from the Visions of Anne Catherine Emmerich has become a classic in Catholic literature. Based on the mystic visions of the Venerable Anne Catherine Emmerich (born 1774, died 1824 and beatified by Pope John Paul II in 2004), a German Augustinian nun from Dulmen, it focuses first on the ancestry of the Blessed Virgin Mary, then on her childhood and early life, and finally next on her life with Jesus and St. Joseph at Nazareth. It does not cover Our Lord's public ministry, but the narrative does cover the Passion and Death of  Our Lord.

Two other books based on the visions of Anne Catherine Emmerich cover the Public Life of Christ and His Passion and Death, namely, The Life of Jesus Christ and Biblical Revelations (4 Volume Set) and The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ, made famous by the movie The Passion of Christ.  In both, mention of Our Lady during Jesus' Public Life is prominent.

Characteristic of all the writings regarding the visions and revelations of Anne Catherine Emmerich is a beautiful, holy aura that seems to surround and pervade everything she says. This book is filled with unusual descriptions that are not recorded in the Gospel story - descriptions that supplement and illustrate the Biblical narrative in a way that makes the actual Scripture passages truly come alive. This book will richly reward you with insights you could never gain from any other source and is a book you will remember all your life.

The Life of the Virgin Mary

Review: Am enjoying reading the unknown information about the lineage of the Blessed Mother. It is interesting to learn about the background of Anne and Joachim, Mary's parents. Never knew that the Blessed Mother had a sister, Maria.

Awesome Mary Book
