(30 reviews) Write a Review

“But there are also many other things which Jesus did which, if they were written every one, the world itself, I think, would not be able to contain the books that should be written.” (John 21:25).

Did you know that the revelations as told in The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ inspired and provided many of the powerful images and scenes in the film The Passion of the Christ?

Written to inspire an increased love for God, this book details the visions of Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich, the renowned 19th century German nun who was a visionary, mystic, stigmatist, and victim soul. Blessed Anne’s visions give accounts of many more of the unknown details of the Passion, providing our imaginations rich food to further contemplate Our Lord’s great suffering on our behalf, and thereby grow our love for Him by meditating upon His most sacred and dolorous Passion.

Every Catholic should meditate frequently upon the Passion of Our Lord; with this book in hand you will be able to meditate on the narrative of the Passion in a new, vivid, and especially spiritually enriching way. Edifying, inspiring, surprising, and heart-rending, Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich's descriptions of our Lord's Passion will melt a heart of stone. 

The content of her visions includes:

  • The Blessed Mother’s role in the Passion and in our redemption 
  • The details of the insults hurled at Jesus
  • Jesus’s conversations with His disciples and with the two thieves
  • The reactions and fear of the people all throughout Jerusalem 
  • An account of the descent into Hell
  • And much more… 

Also included is a biography of the author, which explains the details of her holy life and how different members of the hierarchy of the Church have promoted her visions as credible.

Easily the best and most complete meditation on the Passion, this book is a must-have Lenten read, as well as a year-round way of fostering a spirit repentance and love of our suffering Lord.

    Dolorous Passion

    The book tells so much more about the Passion. It helps when praying the rosary or just meditating on the Passion because it broadens what you know about it and I feel brings you closer to God. I purchased books for our Church men’s group because I thought it was so important for them to know
