The Holy Rosary through the Visions of Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich (Paperback)
The German Mystic born in the latter part of the Eighteenth Century, Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich, was privledged by Almighty God with sensory visions disclosing the earthly life of God Incarnate, of His Holy Mother, the Virgin Mary and of the progression of salvation history from Genesis to the Apocalypse. In this short book, the reader will find a carefully collated set of rosary meditations faithfully drawn from the texts of these visions. Meditations taken directly from our saint's writings are provided for every bead of the rosary, allowing you to ponder at greater depth the secrets revealed to Blessed Anne Catherine and enable you to truly immerse yourself in the marvelous historical events which occurred in the life of Our Divine Redeemer and His Holy Mother. This work is a work of prayer and was revised multiple times in order to offer golden nuggets of contemplative material in every bead of Our Lady's Psalter.
For the benefit of the reader, meditations have also been offered, once again, drawn entirely from Our Saint's writings, for the Mysteries of Light, which are popular among many Catholics, as well as five additional mysteries, entitled "the Hopeful Mysteries", which cover events in Salvation History and in the life of Our Blessed Mother prior to the Incarnation. Blessed Anne offers a wealth of detail for each of these mysteries and these details have been collated for you in this short volume.

"I was very impressed with Fr Higgins' collation of Blessed Anne's writings, these Rosary Meditations are among the best I have come across, there is often enough contained in one bead's meditation to cover the entire decade, and so it is a book one can return to again and again"--James Stubbs Esq. (Lay leader and Catholic Politician)
"A great preaching resource for the Mysteries of the Rosary"--Rev. Fr James Cadman (International speaker and parish mission giver)
