From her life as a young girl of nine, to her extravagant wardrobe and second repentance upon falling back into sin; from her powerful exorcism performed by our Lord himself to his defense against the self-righteous; from her unique relationship with Martha and Lazarus to her outward appearance and presence at Calvary; all these elements come together in an unprecedented examination into the mysterious life of Mary Magdalen.
Delving into the fascinating spiritual journey undertaken by this remarkable woman throughout her life, this book invites those who read it to consider the power of God’s mercy and grace for all sinners on our own path toward redemption. Through renewed appreciation for Saint Mary Magdalen’s story, we may better understand how God works in our lives and be inspired more fully by His infinite love.
Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich was a Roman Catholic Augustinian Canoness Regular of Windesheim, mystic, Marian visionary, ecstatic and stigmatist. She is notable for her visions on the life and passion of Jesus Christ, reputed to be revealed to her by the Blessed Virgin Mary under religious ecstasy. Emmerich was beatified on 3 October 2004, by Pope John Paul II. However, the Vatican focused on her own personal piety rather than the religious writings associated to her by Clemens Brentano. Her documents of postulation towards canonization is handled by the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter.
