The Life of the Blessed Virgin Mary
by Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich
1. A VIEW OF THE THREE HOLY KINGS ON THEIR JOURNEY HOME.
At this time I saw all three kings together again beyond a river. They
had a day of rest and kept a feast. At this place there was one big
house with several smaller ones. The direction taken by the kings on
their way home lies between the road they followed on their journey to
Bethlehem and that by which Jesus came out of Egypt in the third year
of His ministry. At first they traveled very quickly, but after this
resting-place their pace was much slower than when they came. I always
saw a shining youth going before them and sometimes talking with them.
They left Ur on the right.
