Mystic of the Church. Feast Day of Blessed Anna Maria Taigi

THE FEAST DAY OF 
BLESSED ANNA MARIA TAIGI
MYSTIC OF THE CHURCH 
Sunday 9th June

THE CALL OF GOD, A DEEP CONVERSION
A VISION LIKE THE 'SUN' AND 
THE THREE DAYS OF DARKNESS

Describing her early life as a young wife, one source states "Chaste in morals, attached to her wifely duties, Anna-Maria yet lived more for the world than for God”, however, shortly afterward she had a profound conversion. 
Along with receiving the extraordinary ongoing vision of the sun, Anna Maria began to be drawn into ecstasies. Most often, she was often drawn into ecstasy while receiving Holy Communion

The Decree of Beatification & Her Vision:

"Among other gifts the most remarkable was that for a space of forty-seven years she saw a kind of sun in whose light she……foresaw future events, scrutinised the secrets of hearts and the most hidden and most inward impulses." Suddenly, then, in her humble home, Anna saw a little above her head…..a blazing sun crowned by a circle of thorns; two long thorns clasped it round; in the centre was the Eternal Wisdom represented by a young woman seated in contempla­tion. Films of cloud dimmed the dazzling light, but an interior voice told her that the clouds would disappear according to the increasing measure of her purification.

In this light she was to see, until her death, not only everything that might conduce her to perfection, but also everything that could help win others for God and allow her to help the Church militant or suffering.

In 1863 Blessed Anna Maria Taigi's body was found to be incorrupt


Eighteen years after her death her coffin was opened and her body was found to be incorrupt. The holy incorrupt remains of Blessed Anna Maria Taigi lie in state in the Chapel of the Madonna in the basilica of San Chrysogono in Rome. Her Memorial feast day is celebrated in the Church on June 9.
