The Nuptial House • Vineyard • Sufferings for Others, the Church, and the Neighbor
In parts one and two of Spiritual Works and Journeys, the visionary speaks of “action in vision” in the “nuptial house” and “vineyard,” whereby she labors for souls. Parts three and four continue this theme in a wider framework, such as the “two churches,” “planetary influences,” St. Michael and spiritual warfare, and the Church Militant. Part five recounts fascinating spiritual journeys on behalf of the well-being of the souls of others.
Praise for Spiritual Works & Journeys
“Angelico Press has established a landmark in publishing definitive, revised editions (in many cases supplemented with material never translated before) of the visions of Anne Catherine Emmerich, who was beatified by John Paul II in 2004. This multi-volume work will be the authoritative English-language reference for her testimony.”
— CHRISTOPHER FERRARA, author of The Secret Still Hidden
“To call Angelico’s new, definitive editions based upon the visions of Anne Catherine Emmerich a stunning, moving, and beautiful epic is an exercise in understatement. Their multi-volume editions detail not only the fascinating story of the stigmatist and visionary of the turn of the 19th century, but the even more enthralling stories of just what those visions contained depicted both in words and images, supplemented and made complete by previously untranslated material from the original notes of Clemens Brentano, maps, chronologies, genealogies, and everything readers need to immerse themselves in the totally gripping world of the life of Jesus Christ as God revealed it to her, as well as stories from the Old Testament and the lives of the saints, teachings on the spiritual life, heaven, hell, purgatory, and more. Can you imagine what it would be like to get an insider’s bird’s-eye view of Jesus’s three-year social mission throughout the holy land — day by day and step by step? It is here in these volumes, along with so much more that will open up readers even further to the beauty and profundity of the gospels and of other scriptures. Thank you, Angelico Press.”
About the Author:
Anne Catherine Emmerich (Sept. 8, 1774–Feb. 9, 1824) lived from early childhood in almost continual vision of scenes from the Old and New Testaments. By the time she had become (at 29) an Augustinian nun, the visions were concerned primarily with the life of Jesus. In November 1812, she was permanently confined to bed, shortly thereafter received the stigmata, and was for the rest of her life sustained almost exclusively by water and the Eucharist. Many came to visit her, among them the famous poet Clemens Brentano, who was so affected by her radiance that he moved close by to record her visions. On July 29, 1820, Anne Catherine began to communicate to Brentano scenes of the day-to-day life of Jesus, which in due course encompassed the better part of his ministry. She was able to describe in extraordinary detail the places Jesus visited, his miracles and healings, his teaching activity, and the people around him (some unknown to history)—including the apostles’ journeys after the Passion. At the same time she communicated far-reaching insights into many other mysteries, including teachings on prayer and the spiritual life, spiritual healing, the saints, heaven, hell, and purgatory, the life of the Virgin Mary, the Ark of the Covenant, the Promise, the Tree of Life, the Mountain of the Prophet, and many other themes. In 2004 she was beatified by Pope John Paul II.
