After that of Our Lord, there has never been a more glorious, more sacred, more humble, more pure life than Our Lady's—and there has never been one extolled more often either. Our Lady stands as the pinnacle of Creation, the most glorious and all-holy Ever-Virgin Mother of God, and her life was most the perfect imitation of Our Lord's there ever could be.
In The Life of the Blessed Virgin Mary: From the Visions of Anne Catherine Emmerich, Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich demonstrates the riches of this life she was privileged to know more intimately than perhaps any other besides St. Joseph and Our Lord Himself. For in these pages are told the wondrous and miraculous elements of Our Lady's time on this Earth, all the way from her birth and consecration, through her miraculous conception and pregnancy, through her suffering at the foot of the Cross of Our Lord, to her last days and ultimate Dormition and Assumption.
Witness like never before the glory of the Mother of God in what will prove one of the most important books in your life of meditation you will ever encounter. May the visions of Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich bring you into deeper communion with Our Blessed Mother, who in turn does nothing other than bring us into the deepest intimacy with her Divine Son.

Excellent book. Gives more information about the life of Our Lady.
I am really enjoying this book. Learning a bit about the ancestry of Marys mother, I have only gotten to the first few pages of the first chapter, but I am really discovering the insights that this holds. Praying that more people will obtain the graces that come from here.
I absolutely loved learning about Marys life and that of her ancestors and relatives. Im going to share this book with others.
We know so little of Blessed Mary's early life without the help of the mystics, such as Ven. Anne Catherine. These revelations make her even more real to me, and I'm able to love her more and more just as Jesus loves her. She truly is our own Mother too.
I was a little surprised at times at the events of Mary's life before the Annunciation, and then with her life with Joseph and Jesus. The humility and trust of Mary, as well as St. Joseph. Rather detailed about locations that bored me, but otherwise an excellent book to bring the reader closer to Joseph and Mary, and ultimately to Jesus.
