The Life of the Blessed Virgin Mary
by Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich

9. THE KINGS TRAIN IS AUGMENTED WITH OTHER TRAVELERS.




[December 3 ^rd to 5 ^th:] When the kings left Causur, I saw that they were joined by a considerable number of distinguished travelers who were going the same way. On December 3 ^rd and 4 ^th I saw them crossing a wide plain. On the 5 ^th they rested by a fountain but without unloading. They watered and fed their beasts and prepared food for themselves.

[In the last few days Catherine Emmerich while asleep in the evening often sang several short verses with very strange and moving melodies. When she was asked the reason for this, she said:] I am singing with my dear kings, they sing with great sweetness many short verses, such as:

"Over the hills let us make our way Our homage to the new King to pay".

They take it in turn to invent and sing these verses: one begins, and the others repeat the verse he has sung. Then another starts another verse, and so as they ride along they keep up their sweet and heartfelt singing.

In the heart of the star, or rather of the globe of light, which went before them to show them the way, I saw the appearance of a Child with a Cross. When they saw the appearance of the Virgin in the stars at the birth of Jesus, this globe of light appeared in front of the picture and suddenly began to move gently forward.
