Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich was one of the most privileged and gifted mystics in Church history. Throughout much suffering and sacrifice, she received in holy ecstasies miraculous visions of the lives of Our Lord, Our Lady, and the saints.
One of the personages in these visions is, of course, Mary Magdalen, central as she was to much of the Gospel story. She is considered less often than others, yet Blessed Anne Catherine's visions are extremely telling about the significance of this prototype of all penitents, considered by the Church the "apostle to the apostles" (since she announced the Resurrection of Our Lord).
Mary Magdalen in the Visions of Anne Catherine Emmerich reveals not only the Biblical account of Mary Magdalen's interactions with Our Lord, Lazarus and Mary, and the disciples, but also her early life. Contained in these pages are her fall to sin at the age of 9, her attempts at repentance, and far more than visionary has ever reported of her. Let the visions of the holy mystic Anne Catherine Emmerich guide you to a deep, fruitful relationship with Mary Magdalen, the patron saint of all penitents—and therefore of all of us.
