Blessed Anna Maria Taigi

June 9
Italian. 1769-1837

Born at Siena, daughter of a druggist named Giannetti, whose business failed, she was brought to Romeand worked for a timeas a domestic servant. In 1790 she married Dominic Taigi, a butler of the Chigi family in Rome, and lived the normal life of a married woman of the working class. In the discharge of these humble duties and in the bringing up of her seven children she attained a high degree of holiness. Endowed with many charismatic gifts, including prophecy, she read thoughts and described distant events. Her home became the rendezvous of cardinals and other dignitaries who sought her counsel. She was beatified in 1920.

Prayer to the Blessed Mother....
Prostrate at thy feet, O great Queen of Heaven, we venerate thee with the deepest reverence and we confess that thou art the Daughter of the Father, the Mother of the Divine Word, the Spouse of the Holy Ghost. Thou art the store-keeper and the almoner of the Divine Mercies ... For this reason, we call thee Mother of Divine Compassion. Behold us here in affliction and anguish! Deign to show us thy true love. We beg thee to ask the Holy Trinity, most fervently, to grant us the grace ever to conquer the devil and the world, and our evil passions; the efficacious grace that sanctifies the just, converts sinners, destroys heresies, enlightens infidels and brings all men to the true Faith.
Obtain for us this great gift that all the world may form but one people united in the One True Church.
Mary, Mother of Holy Hope, pray for us!
