Blessed Anna Maria Taigi was an Italian housewife, mother, and mystic. At age 20 she married Dominic Taigi and soon after had a conversion to renounce all vanities. Mortification, patience, humility, and devotion to the Church became her life. The couple had 7 children, 3 of whom died in infancy. She conversed with Jesus and Mary and was able to see hidden and future events through a miraculous luminous globe that stayed with her at all times. Her love for the Trinity prompted her to become a Secular Trinitarian, living an ordinary life as a wife and mother. Her body remained incorrupt for several years after her death and Pope Benedict XV declared her blessed on May 30, 1920.
