Who is Bl. Anne Catherine and what is to be found in her contemplations of Jesus' life?
Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich (8 September 1774 – 9 February 1824) was a Roman Catholic Augustinian nun, stigmatic, mystic, visionary and ecstatic.
During her later, bedridden years, the poet Clemens Brentano interviewed her at length and wrote books based on his notes of her visions.
Anne Catherine was beatified on October 3, 2004, by Pope John Paul II. When considering Anne Catherine's cause for beautification, the Vatican focused on her own personal piety and disregarded the books written by Brentano.
On the other hand, many people find these books of Anne Catherine's visions to be a quite worthwhile source for further reflection upon the Bible and the life of Jesus Christ.
