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

1. THE AGE OF THE CHILD JESUS DURING THE FLIGHT TO EGYPT.




[Unfortunately there was no opportunity of obtaining precise information from her about this, as she was very ill during these communications. Once she said: The Child may well be more than a year old, I saw Him playing about by a balsam-bush at one of the halting-places on the journey, and sometimes His parents led Him by the hand for a little way.' Another time it seemed to her that Jesus was nine months old. It must be left to the reader to conjecture the age of Jesus from the various circumstances of Catherine Emmerich's account, and in particular from a comparison with the age of the little John the Baptist, which seems to confirm the theory of Our Lord being nine months old.]
