Pope John Paul II

Anne Catherine stands like a cross at the side of the street, to indicate the right direction to the faithful. That which she says is brief but simple, full of depth, warmth and life. I understood everything. Always happy, affectionate, dignified, marvelous; always ill, agonizing, but at the same time delicate and fresh, chaste, tried, lucid. To be seated at her side meant to occupy the most beautiful place in the world.

—Clemens Brentano

Anne Catherine Emmerich (1774–1824) was a Roman Catholic Augustinian nun whose detailed visions provided her revelations of the life of Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary. She experienced ecstasies and stigmata during her life and was regarded as a healer. She was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 2004.
