Blessed Anna Maria Taigi

Blessed Anna Maria Taigi

Blessed Anna Maria Taigi (1769-1837)

Excerpt from Louis Veuillot's book, The Fragrance of Rome, on the
extraordinary gifts of Bl. Anna Maria Taigi, Catholic wife and mother.

“Her intellectual gifts were altogether overshadowed by an unexampled miracle. Shortly before she had entered on the way of perfection there began to appear to her a golden globe which became as a sun of matchless light; in this all things were revealed to her. Past and *future [see below] were to her an open book.

“She knew with certainty the fate of the dead. Her gaze travelled to the ends of the earth and discovered there people on whom she had never set eyes, reading them to the depths of their souls. One glance sufficed; upon whatever she focused her thoughts, it was revealed to her and her understanding. She saw the whole world as we see the front of a building. It was the same with nations as with individuals; she saw the cause of their distresses and the remedies that would heal them.

“By means of this permanent and prodigious miracle, the poor wife of Domenico Taigi became a theologian, a teacher, and a prophet. The miracle lasted forty-seven years. Until her death the humble woman was able to read this mysterious sun as an ever-open book. Until her death she looked into it solely for the glory of God; that is, when charity suggested or obedience demanded it. Should things for which she had not looked, or which she did not understand, appear she refrained from asking explanations.

“The poor, the great of the world, the princes of the Church came to her for advice or help. They found her in the midst of her household cares and often suffering from illness. She refused neither her last crust of bread nor the most precious moment of her time, yet she would accept neither presents nor praise.

“Her most powerful friends could not induce her to allow them to favour her children beyond in which the conditions they were born. When she was at the end of her resources, she told God about it, and God sent what was necessary.

“She thought it good to live from day to day, like the birds. A refugee queen in Rome wished to give her money. ‘Madame.’ she said, ‘how simple you are! I serve God, and He is richer than you.’

“She touched the sick, and they were cured; she warned others of their approaching end, and they died holy deaths. She endured great austerities for the souls of purgatory, and the souls, once set free, came to thank her... She suffered in body and soul... She realized that her role was to expiate the sins of others, that Jesus was associating her with His Sacrifice, and that she was victim of His company. The pains of Divine Love have an intoxication no words can explain. After Holy Communion there were times when she sank down as though smitten by a prostrating stroke. To tell the truth, her state of ecstacy was continual because her sense of the presence of God was continual... All pain was sweet to her...She went her way, her feet all bloody; with shining eyes she followed the Royal way.

“Behold then, the spectacle God raised to men’s sight in Rome during that long tempestuous period which began at time the humble Anna-Maria took to the way of saints!

“Pius VI dies at Valence; Pius VII is a prisoner at Fontainebleau; the revolution will reappear before Gregory XVI reigns. Men are saying that the day of the Popes is over. That Christ’s law and Christ Himself are on the wane, that science will soon have relegated this so-called Son of God to the realm of dreams... He will work no more miracles.

“But at precisely this time God raised up this woman to cure the sick.... He gives her knowledge of the past, present and future. She declares that Pius VII will return. She sees even beyond the reign of Pius IX... She is God’s answer to the challenge of unbelief.”

3 Day of Darkness
The Three Days of Darkness

*Imperative Information: Blessed Anna Maria Taigi predicted a major and as of yet still fothcoming Chastisement for the world on account of its grave sins.
"God will send two punishments: one will be in the form of wars, revolutions and other evils; it shall originate on earth. The other will be sent from Heaven. There shall come over the whole earth an intense darkness lasting three days and three nights. Nothing can be seen, and the air will be laden with pestilence which will claim mainly, but not only, the enemies of religion. It will be impossible to use any man-made lighting during this darkness, except blessed candles. He, who out of curiosity, opens his window to look out, or leaves his home, will fall dead on the spot. During these three days, people should remain in their homes, pray the Rosary and beg God for mercy."

"All the enemies of the Church, whether known or unknown, will perish over the whole earth during that universal darkness, with the exception of a few whom God will soon convert. The air shall be infected by demons who will appear under all sorts of hideous forms." (Prophecy of Blessed Anna Maria Taigi (1769-1837 A.D.) who was Beatified by Pope Bendedict XV in 1920.)
