Blessed Anna Maria Taigi
Loyal Wife, Loving Mother, Faithful Daughter of the Church
Mystic and Stigmatist - Advisor to the Popes
On May 29, 1769, a baby girl was born to Mary Santa Masi and Luigi Giannetti In Siena. Our little future Blessed, Anna Maria Taigi came from a very well respected family. Two and a half months after her birth, Napoleon Bonaparte I was born, he who would destroy and plunder all that was good and holy. His background was like hers, in that he came from a middle class family who had fallen on hard times. As Napoleon would seek to conquer the world with its empty promises, Anna Maria would live only to serve her Lord with the World above in her sights.
She was baptized the day after her birth in the church of Saint John the Baptist. Her father Luigi's business, went bad, and at age six, the family moved. We can just see the little impoverished little band walking towards Rome. They settled in the "dei Monte" area of Rome, a quarter teeming with families jammed together in small hot dwellings.
Luigi found a job as a domestic. Anna Maria went to school. Small Pox struck; she took ill, and her schooling was cut short. She never returned to school. Her family needed her to remain at home. This girl, who was never taught to write, would someday dictate volumes of messages that she had mystically received from the Lord.
Anna Maria made her first confession at age seven and was confirmed at eleven in Saint John Lateran. At thirteen, she received her First Holy Communion. When Anna Maria turned sixteen, she was breathtakingly beautiful! She soon began to notice eyes constantly upon her. She enjoyed going to dances. She found herself not only enjoying the attention and complimentary glances, she began to cater to the accolades, fussing over her appearance, until one day, she realized her new found vanity could lead her to sin. All who testified at her Beatification, affirmed, she did not fall victim to even venial sin, as a result of this temporary temptation. Even at this time, Anna Maria never ceased praying, receiving Holy Communion every Sunday, as well as attending Daily Mass.
Anna Maria offers herself as victim to God for the Papacy
All parishioners were asked to pray for Pope Pius VI who was trying to dissuade Emperor Franz Joseph and his minister, from turning the Church into a heretical State Church. Anna Maria had an inner locution. She felt the Lord speak to her heart. She must offer herself as a victim to God for the triumph of the Papacy over enemy forces who desired to destroy the Church.
Maria's father obtained a position in the Maccarani palace. The
mistress of the palace, Madame Serra had need of a maid, he recommended
his daughter Anna Maria. Madame Serra was so pleased with Anna Maria,
she offered a post to her mother. And so the whole Giannetti family
moved into the palace with their few possessions.
