Dolorous -- "sorrowful, grievous," from the Latin word dolor, or "pain." Passion -- Middle English from Old French, from Late Latin, "the sufferings of Jesus or a martyr," from the Latin for "an undergoing."
Introducing a new edition of THE DOLOROUS PASSION OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST by the Venerable Anne Catherine Emmerich, as recorded by the poet Klemens Maria Brentano.
This spiritual classic has moved and inspired readers for nearly 200 years. Sister Emmerich's enthralling illumination of the final hours in the life of Christ reflects not only her mystic sensitivity to Jesus' travails during the Last Supper, Agony in the Garden, Arrest, Trial, Scourging, and Crucifixion, but also reveals something of the wonder of the Resurrection.
This new, affordable "Popular Edition" is designed for modern audiences who wish to discover Sister Anne's remarkable revelations for themselves. Perfect-bound paperback volume measures 5-1/4 x 8-1/4 inches. 232 pages.
"[Emmerich's] visions go into details, often slight, which give them a vividness that strongly holds the reader's interest as one graphic scene follows another in rapid succession as if visible to the physical eye. Other mystics are more concerned with ideas, she with events; others stop to meditate aloud and to guide the reader's thoughts, she lets the facts speak for themselves with the simplicity, brevity, and security of a Gospel narrative."
