    Story
    (9)

    Anne Catherine Emmerich was born in Germany in 1774. As a child she believed that angels, saints, and the Holy Family visited and talked with her as she worked in the fields. At twenty-four, she had her first mystic vision of the sufferings of Christ, accompanied by stigmata and bleeding as if from the crown of thorns. At twenty-nine, she became an Augustinian nun and continued to have visions and stigmata. In her visions, she recounted scenes from the life of Christ, which she seemed to have witnessed.

    Overall

    The commentary was easy for me to understand and gave me a very good understanding of Jesus's human will and desire for all mankind. He was God, made man that gave us all the gift of salvation and eternal life with him in Heaven, through his teachings and ultimately his passion and death. I now understand the tremendous pressures, true love, and devotion that His Mother "The Blessed Virgin Mary" had for her Son. All of the apostles doubts, frustrations, and human frailities that I have never really considered as a part of their true nature. They were real people in a different time and place that seemed too unreal to imagine or believe. Toward the end in part 2 gives an understanding of Adam and Eve's sin, explanations of Judas desires that led him to betray Jesus, and various other information that I would have never known had it not been for this book.
    This narration of the passion and death of Christ is a very cruel and real but humbling experience, yet still gives a great feeling to me that even though Christ died for all of us and our sins, to have the opportunity for everlasting life with Christ in Heaven is the greatest gift of all.
