Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich


The 9th of February is the Feast day of Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich.

Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich lived between 1774 and 1824 and was born in Germany to a peasant family. Since she was young, she received visions of the lives of Jesus, the Virgin Mary, and the saints. Her guardian angel would appear to her when she was a child, and Jesus would visit while she was taking care of the sheep. Even the souls in purgatory would call for her prayers. She entered the religious life at the age of 28 years old, where she suffered physically from supernatural phenomena which left her bedridden. Her daily visions continued giving her insight into the spiritual realm which was recorded in books that they are now popular.

February 2, 2018 Message to Mirjana

Dear children, you whom my Son loves, you whom I love with an immeasurable motherly love, do not permit for selfishness, for self love, to rule the world. Do not permit for love and goodness to be hidden. You who are loved, who have come to know the love of my Son, remember that to be loved means to love. My children, have faith. When you have faith you are happy and are spreading peace; your soul trembles with joy. My Son is in such a soul. When you are giving yourself for the faith, when you are giving yourself for love, when you are doing good to your neighbor, my Son smiles in your soul. Apostles of my love, I am turning to you as a mother. I am gathering you around myself and I desire to lead you on the way of love and faith, on the way which leads to the light of the world. I am here for the sake of love, for the sake of faith, because with my motherly blessing I desire to give you hope and strength on your way - because the way which leads to my Son is not easy. It is full of renunciation, giving, sacrifice, forgiveness and much, much love. But this way leads to peace and happiness. My children, do not believe lying voices which speak to you about false things, false glitter. You, my children, return to the Scripture. I am looking at you with immeasurable love, and through God's grace am making myself evident to you. My children, set out with me. May your soul tremble with joy. Thank you.
