Beatified in 1920 as a model of women and mothers, Anna Maria Taigi was not only a prophetess of our time, but one of the most extraordinary mystics in the history of the Church.
From the time she was 20 years old, until she died at the age of 63, the Beata was accompanied by a mysterious light in which she saw past, present, and furure events . . . some relating to struggles among nations; some relating to individual souls.
Blessed Anna Maria gazed into that light only when she felt an interior impulse . . . a sort of direction from Our Lord and the Holy Spirit . . . to do so. And usually when she looked into the light she was asked to offer some special suffering for a special need in the Church or in an individual.
In that light Anna Maria saw a great chastisement coming upon the world in the future . . . but at the same time a great blessing: The "Warning" which would be an illumination of the consciences of men, just as though suddenly every man was given the same kind of light that accompanied her . . . in which they would see themselves as God sees them.
It is interesting that 300 years before Blessed Anna Maria this same revelation was given to St. Edmund Campion, who went to his death affirming this same prophecy.
One is put in mind of the prophecies of the Old Testament . . . some of which were close to the time of Our Lord, and some of which were hundreds of years before. And no one ever knew with any exactitude when those prophecies would be fulfilled.
But we now have cogent reasons to believe that this prophecy of the warning and the chastisement . . . which we have heard from the lips of various good persons and canonized saints . . . will take place very soon, for we recall that St. John Bosco, an authentic prophet of our time, was told by Our Lady that She would obtain a victory for Christianity before the year 2000 which would be greater even than the victory of Lepanto (which in 1571 was a turning point in the history of the world over seeminly hopeless odds).
