The Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ : According to the Revelations of Blessed Anna Catherine Emmerich; Preceded by a Brief Biography of This Great Servant of God; Translated from the German by a Priest of the Order of Saint Benedict (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ: According to the Revelations of Blessed Anna Catherine Emmerich; Preceded by a Brief Biography of This Great Servant of God; Translated From the German by a Priest of the Order of Saint Benedict With a clearness that fills the soul with over whelming emotion, the magnitude and intensity of the sufferings of Jesus Christ and the compassion of His Blessed Mother are placed before our eyes. No human heart can be so hardened as not to be deeply moved to compassion in reading this book and meditating on its contents. These revelations of the Passion of Christ were made to a saintly person, who received the impressions of the five holy wounds in her own body, who suffered inex pressibly with Christ, to such a degree, indeed, that when Our Lord showed her His agony, He placed His hand compassionately on her breast and said: No one has yet seen all this, and terror would cleave thy heart asunder, did I not hold it together.
