Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich


The 9th of February is the Feast day of Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich.

Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich lived between 1774 and 1824 and was born in Germany to a peasant family. Since she was young, she received visions of the lives of Jesus, the Virgin Mary, and the saints. Her guardian angel would appear to her when she was a child, and Jesus would visit while she was taking care of the sheep. Even the souls in purgatory would call for her prayers. She entered the religious life at the age of 28 years old, where she suffered physically from supernatural phenomena which left her bedridden. Her daily visions continued giving her insight into the spiritual realm which was recorded in books that they are now popular.

Our Lady of Medjugorje

August 02, 2018 Message to Mirjana

Dear children, with a motherly love I am calling you to open hearts to peace; to open hearts to my Son, so that in your hearts love for my Son may sing, because only out of that love peace comes in the soul. My children, I know that you have goodness, I know that you have love - a merciful love, but many of my children still have a closed heart. They think that they can do it without directing their thoughts towards the Heavenly Father who illuminates-towards my Son who is always with you anew in the Eucharist and who desires to listen to you. My children, why do you not speak to Him? The life of each of you is important and precious, because it is a gift from the Heavenly Father for eternity. Therefore, do not ever forget to keep on thanking Him: speak to Him. I know, my children, that what is to come afterwards is unknown to you, but when your hereafter comes you will receive all the answers. My motherly love desires that you be ready. My children, by your life keep putting good feelings in the hearts of the people whom you meet, feelings of peace, goodness, love and forgiveness. Through prayer, hearken to what My Son is saying and act accordingly. Anew, I am calling you to prayer for your shepherds, for those whom my Son has called. Remember that they need prayers and love. Thank you.
