(16 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.

    The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ

    Posted by Lynda on May 24th 2023

    I purchased this book in March 2021 near the end of Lent thinking I would have the time to read it before Easter. Since I wasnt able to read it all at that time I put it aside to read beginning on Ash Wednesday of this year. I am so thankful that I waited so that I could read it through without rushing to finish before Easter. The visions of Venerable Anne Catherine Emmerich walk us through every detail of our Lords Passion allowing us individually to internalize just how much he loves us. The details of all the supportingù persons throughout his life give so much depth now to the readings of the Gospels during this holy time of year. I would read bits and pieces of this book to my husband and now he wants to read the entire book himself. There is a wealth of information here that I hope to bring to others in conversation over time. I highly recommend this book to everyone!

    Perfect Lent Meditations

    Posted by Tabbitha on May 24th 2023

    Perspective is incredibly important in meditations. I must admit that mine had become rather repetitive, and this book has so deepened my sorrowful meditations and given me perspective and direction that o hadnt before considered. My love for our Savior and his holy mother has so intensified. Regardless of ones sentiments for mystic visions, this is a beautiful (and painful) source to further consider the Passion on our Lord.
