"The Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ according to the Revelations of Blessed Anna Catherine Emmerich" is a book that may justly be called a world's book. I t is destined for all Christian people, and deserves to be translated into every language. With a clearness that fills the soul with overwhelming emotion, the magnitude and intensity of the sufferings of Jesus Christ and the compassion of His Blessed Mother are placed before our eyes. No human heart can be so hardened as not to be deeply moved to compassion in reading this book and meditating on its contents. These revelations of the Passion of Christ were made to a saintly person, who received the impressions of the five holy wounds in her own body, who suffered inexpressibly with Christ, to such a degree, indeed, that when Our Lord showed her His agony, He placed His hand compassionately on her breast and said: "No one has yet seen all this, and terror would cleave thy heart asunder, did I not hold it together." In translating this book into English, we have adhered closely to the oldest text of the German original, and have eliminated everything that might not be interesting to the reader, or that might have an annoying effect. We wish to remark, that private revelations, according to the decrees of Pope Urban VIII. in the years 1634 and 1641, in so far as the Church has not decided upon them, claim only human credence. Go forth, then, devout and holy book, go forth into the Catholic world. Enter into Christian homes and effect untold good for the salvation of many. It is said this book inspired Mel Gibson in making the movie, The Passion of the Christ.
