First published in 1833, "The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ" was the principal extrabiblical source for Mel Gibson's blockbuster 2004 movie "The Passion of the Christ," which grossed over $600 million in worldwide box office. To write the work, Goethe friend and author Clemens Brentano spent six years at the bedside of 19th century Augustinian nun Anne Catherine Emmerich, recording her spectacular visions of the life, passion, crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In addition to being a visionary, Emmerich was an ecstatic, stigmatic and inediac. After she died in 1824, Brentano spent nine years organizing his notes on the renowned nun's visions of the passion and crucifixion before publishing them as "The Dolorous Passion." The book soon outsold even Goethe in Germany, and became an international best-seller. The book was all but forgotten until resurrected by Gibson for his classic movie about the Passion.

Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich was an Augustinian nun at the Convent of Agnetenberg, Dulmen, Westphalia, Germany. She lived between 1774 to 1824. During her life, God gave her extensive visions of the past, the present and the future. Many theologians believe that she received from God more visions than any other saint. The Sorrowful (Dolorous) Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ are the visions of Anne Catherine Emmerich concerning the horrific sufferings our Dear Lord Jesus Christ suffered in his work to save mankind. This includes the Last Supper, the Agony in the Garden, the Arrest, the Scourging the Crowning of Thorns, the Trial by Pontius Pilate, the Carrying of the Cross, the Crucifixion and the Dying on the Cross and the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. They are incredibly, highly detailed and descriptive, revealing to us more information about the Life of Jesus Christ besides what we read of Him in the Bible. These excerpts are from the book: THE DOLOROUS PASSION OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.The addendum on the Resurrection, Ascension, Day of Pentecost and the Life of Mary after the Ascension of Christ are from the book: The Lowly Life and Bitter Passion of OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST AND HIS BLESSED MOTHER. Recorded in the Journals of Clemens Brentano, arranged and edited by the Very Reverend Carl E. Schm�ger, C.SS.R.

Preview the Kindle version to read more of the booklet's interior content. This booklet is a compilation of the words of Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich pertaining to the fourteen traditional Stations of the Cross. These words spoken by the Blessed and transcribed for her by Klemens Brentano have been a source of inspiration to many, including Fr. Gerard Manley Hopkins, Jacques and Raissa Maritain, and Mel Gibson in his writing of "The Passion of the Christ." The material is arranged in such a way as to facilitate the praying of the Stations of the Cross by the faithful. The second fall of Jesus (traditionally the 7th Station) is combined with the 4th Station in Blessed Anne Catherine's visions; and the third fall of Jesus (traditionally the 9th Station) is combined with the 5th Station. Thus, the Stations of the Cross presented here are twelve in number, though all fourteen traditional Stations are represented within the twelve.
