      Here follows a link to a very
      intelligent piece on (the possible
      Brentano damage done to)Anne Catherine
      Emmerich....

      First note THIS from the bottom
      of the page:

      (quoting...)

      Additionally, in the Jan. 11, 2001 issue of the Wanderer (Catholic
      Replies column, p. 3),

      "Emmerich's cause for beatification came to a halt in 1928 after it
      was discovered that Clemens Brentano, the man who compiled her
      visions into a book in 1833, 'had fabricated almost all the material
      attributed to her.' German bishops and the Augustinan order succeeded
      in getting the cause revived in 1979 by ignoring the question of
      whether her revelations were authentic and concentrating instead on
      her personal sanctity and her mystical gifts.

      The problem with the Dolorous Passion and the books that were
      compiled from Brentano's notes after his death (the Life of the
      Blessed Virgin Mary, the four-volume Life of Jesus Christ and
      Biblical Revelations, and the Life of Anne Catherine Emmerich), says
      Sandra Miesel, is that they are ridden with historical errors and
      fanciful descriptions, and there is no way of distinguishing between
      Emmerich's contribution and Brentano's."
