    I came across a link in Spirit Daily the other day (which sadly no longer works} to an article on a very great favourite of mine, Blessed Ann Marie Taigi.


    Here is her miraculously preserved body. I will tell you a curious thing about photos of her body, type, 'Ann Marie Taigi' into google and look at photos of her body, it seems to me in all the different photo's of her, her face though dead, always seems to wear a different expression or is it my imagination?

    Anyhow I only discovered that by accident, but I think looking at her that there is an expression of very great sweetness on her face, like a woman of high sanctity and sweetness that you could most easily love. I was praying to her just last night.

    The reasons why I love Ann Marie are several. Firstly because she is so unusual in that she was the mother of seven children. Now it was very, very unusual for the mother of a large family, a working mother to be canonised, so I knew she had to be really special. She was a great mystic, a lady of high prayer. Plus a miracle worker of th highest order.

    Perhaps most interesting of all she was someone who had, as a gift from God a globe of white light in which she could see the secrets of the past , present and future and see the secrets of souls. SO, though she could not I suppose hardly read and write the most learned , rich and powerful of all Europe, including Cardinals and Popes came to her little door for advice...{and she never took a cent for this.

    She was so down to earth , too, her husband gave her a terrible time of it and she was a martyr to her in-laws who were shocking. Yet there was always so sweet, patient and kind. She was unusual too in that she did no great penances and lived an ordinary kind of life from the outside. It was ,I suppose putting up with the family circumstances as a bit of a martyr led her to sanctity, bless her.
    One day, while I was in Rome I wondered down form Saint Peters in Rome to the Travastere, a real working class district across the Tiber and called at random into a local Church there. I love doing this as in Rome the Churches are so lovely...and they often hold the bodies of saints. Well you can imagine how delighted I was to find the miraculously preserved body of Ann Marie there and how I prayer and stared at it!! This not far, I suppose from were she lived and raised her large family!!

    Anyhow Ann Marie holds another great interest for me as she prophesied what we are going through at the minute, the Tribulation:


    The Prophecies:

    a) "God will decree two afflictions. One will originate on earth, namely; wars, revolutions and other evils. The other judgement comes from the air.

    b) " A very thick darkness shall envelop the earth during three days. This awful darkness shall be impregnated with such pestilential vapors, and filled with such frightful apparitions, that they will cause, in a more special manner, the death of the hypocritical and avowed enemies of the Holy Church.

    c) " On this terrible occasion so many of these wicked men, enemies of his Church and of their God, shall be killed by this divine scourge, that their corpses round Rome will be as numerous as the fish which a (then) recent innundation of the Tiber had carried into the city. All enemies of the Church, secret as well as known, will perish over the whole earth during the universal darkness, with the exception of some few, whom God will soon after convert. The air shall be infested with demons, who will appear under all sorts of hideous forms.

    d) "During this darkness artificial light will be impossible. Only blessed candles can be lighted and will afford illumination. He who out of curiosity opens his window to look out or leaves his house will fall dead on the spot. During these three days the people should remain in their homes, pray the Rosary and beg God for mercy.

    e) " A heavenly apparition shall come to reassure the faithful. St. Peter and St. Paul will appear on the clouds, and all men shall see them; and, in a supernatural manner, faith shall return to their hearts. Innumerable conversions of heretics shall cause universal edification.

    f) "One day, Anna Maria, while shedding a torrent of tears, prayed and offered her actions and suffering s for the conversion of sinners, for the destruction of sin, and that God might be known and loved by all men. Then God manifested to her the horrible sins of persons of every condition, and how greviously he was offended. At this sight the servant of God experienced profound sorrow, and sighing, she exclaimed: 'Dearly beloved! what is the remedy for this disaster?' Jesus Christ answered: 'My child, the Church, my spouse, my Father, and myself shall remedy everything. For after a punishment...those who shall survive shall have to conduct themselves well.' At this point she saw innumerable conversions of heretics, who will return to the bosom of the Church; she saw, also, the edifying conduct of their lives, as well as that of all other Catholics.

    g) "During several successive days, Anna Maria beheld a most excessive darkness spreading itself over the whole world. She likewise saw falling ruins of walls, accompanied by much dust, as if a great edifice had tumbled down. This scourge was shown to her on divers occasions. This may indicate the ruins caused by frightful earthquakes, or the destruction effected by the wicked communists. We presume, and assume as pretty certain, that this darkness will be sensible, similar to that of Egypt, mentioned in Exodus, tenth chapter, and that it shall continue during three days.

    h) "Religious shall be persecuted, priests shall be massacred, the churches shall be closed, but only for a short time; the Holy Father shall be obliged to abandon Rome.

    i) "Our Lord said to her: 'First five big trees must be cut down in order that the triumph of the Church may come. These five trees are five great heresies.' Then the Servant of God said: 'Two hundred years are hardly sufficient that all of this may happen.' And Our Lord replied:'It won't take as long as you think!'

    j) "First, several EARTHLY scourges will come. They are going to be dreadful, but they will be mitigated and shortened by the prayers and the penances of many holy souls. There will be great wars in which millions of people will perish through iron. But, after these earthly scourges will come the HEAVENLY one, which will be directed solely against the impenitent. This scourge will be far more frightful and terrible; it will be mitigated by nothing, but it will take place and act in its full rigor. However, in what this heavenly scourge will consist, God did not reveal to anyone, not even His most intimate friends."

    (Taken word for word from The Reign of Antichrist by Rev Gerald Culleton copyright 1951. Sold at:

    a) "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 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."

    b) "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."

    c) "Religion shall be persecuted, and priests massacred. Churches shall be closed, but only for a short time. The Holy Father shall be obliged to leave Rome."

    d) "France shall fall into a frightful anarchy. The French shall have a desperate civil war in the course of which even old men will take up arms. The political parties, having exhausted their blood and their rage without being able to arrive at any satisfactory settlement, shall agree at the last extremity to have recourse to the Holy See. Then the Pope shall send to France a special legate....In consequence of the information received, His Holiness himself shall nominate a most Christian King for the government of France."

    e) "After the three days of darkness, St. Peter and St. Paul, having come down from Heaven, will preach in the whole world and designate a new Pope. A great light will flash from their bodies and will settle upon the cardinal who is to become Pope. Christianity, then, will spread throughout the world. He is the Holy Pontiff, chosen by God to withstand the storm. At the end, he will have the gift of miracles, and his name shall be praised over the whole earth."

    f) "Whole nations will come back to the Church and the face of the earth will be renewed. Russia, England, and China will come into the Church."

    I read her lifestory some years ago. I believe she was friendly with Napoleon's mother and prayed much for him. She saw him in her light filled globe alone in prison on Elba. I think his soul may have been saved through her prayers.

    I think I recall Mary, that her son got married and him and the wife , Ann Marie's daughter-in-law moved in with them...I think the daughter -in-law took over the house and treated her very badly?

    I always thought Ann Marie had huge patience.

    I happened to read that article on spirit daily; I was very impressed at her story.
