of the Revelations of Bl. Anne Katherine Emmerich
The need for an Investigative Film Documentary
Prof. Fred Nazar Reynolds, has
proposed a film documentary on Bl.Anne Katherine
The documentary may cover the places where she lived and Santa Maria Maggiore where she was providentially beatified, I mean providentially, because in this Basilica she DESCRIBES THE EXACT LOCATION OF A TREASURE in the walls - relics, writings from the first
If you find Luke's painting and writings of the first
Consider that because of her detailed revelations, Heinrich Schliemann (the archaeologist who found
The house of Blessed Virgin Mary in
Emmerich also describes a treasure in a Judean city in
Consider that Emmerich describes in detail the story of hundreds of relics and/or the exact locations of religious treasures such as:
§ The Holy Grail
§ Lignum Crucis
§ Crown of thorns and nails used in the Crucifixion
§ The sacred spear
§ Hair of Blessed Virgin Mary
§ Hand of Blessed Virgin Mary stamped in the rock
§ Stone miraculously engraved in Saint Peter's
§ Nuptial ring of Blessed Virgin Mary
§ House of the Sacred Family
§ House of Saint
§ Miraculous spring/fountain asked by our Mother in Egypt
§ Miraculous paintings and images of our Lord and our Mother
§ House of Saint Peter
§ House of Saint Paul
§ Body and head of
§ Body of Saint
§ Arc of the Covenant
§ And hundreds of etc.
Each relic and place can be directly linked to a Bible passage and will raise more trust in the scriptures as well as Emmerich/Brentano writings.
Why is this important to faith?
Resurrecting Emmerich's theological message will have a great impact on:
§ Converting people, especially lukewarm Catholics and Protestants (n.b. Lutherans)
§ The canonization process of Emmerich
§ The appreciation of the Catholic Church's tradition in interpreting the Bible
§ The appreciation of relics as channels of especial blessings
§ The answers to questions such as:
o Why is it fair that God chose the Jews, while discriminating the rest?
o Why did Mary deserved to be chosen among all women?
o If God loves us, why did he wait thousands of years to incarnate?
o Why is Latin so important to the Church?
o Why is prayer, penance and mercy, for the love of God, essential to salvation?
o What is the limbo?
o Why should we trust the Gospels? Emmerich determines the location, date, author and circumstances related to their writing.
o Why the Da Vinci Code is wrong on issues like Trinity, priesthood, Mary Magdalene, celibacy, etc.? Emmerich gives a detailed account of unknown facts about the life of Jesus (including childhood), our Blessed Mother, Saint Joseph, the apostles, the first martyrs and saints, Mary Magdalene, Lazarus, etc., which could also integrate a documentary series.
o What are the real dates of Immaculate Conception, Incarnation, Nativity, etc.?
Emmerich predicted that she would be forgotten but after a "time" the writings will come back from the other side of the ocean. This may have been accomplished by The Passion but maybe, it was just the beginning of the fulfillment and this project will complete the prophecy.
Why is this important to biblical archaeology?
Emmerich gives a detailed map of
