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.

Dear children, Through the great love of the Heavenly Father I am beside you as your mother and you are beside me as my children, as apostles of my love whom I ceaselessly gather around me. My children, you are those who, along with prayer, need to completely surrender to my Son so that you may no longer live but my Son may live in you - so that all those who do not know my Son may see Him in you and come to desire to know Him. Pray that in you they may see resolute humility and goodness, a readiness to serve others; that in you they may see that you live your vocation in the world with the heart, in communion with my Son; that in you they may see meekness, tenderness and love for my Son as well as for all brothers and sisters. Apostles of my love, you must pray much and cleanse your hearts so that you may be the first to walk on the way of my Son, that you may be the just who are united with the justice of my Son. My children, as apostles of my love, you must be united in the communion which emanates from my Son, so that my children who do not know my Son may recognize the communion of love and may come to desire to walk on the way of life, the way of unity with my Son. Thank you.
