Blessed Anna Maria Taigi: Three Days of Darkness

Anna Maria Taigi was one of the great mystics of the last century. She achieved sanctification by living the ordinary life of a wife and mother in a spirit of Christian mission and surrender to the will of God.

Blessed Anna Maria Taigi was born in Siena on May 29, 1769. Her parents, Louis Giannetti and Mary Masi moved to Rome due to financial difficulties. This was when Anna Maria was only six years old.

At a very young age, Anna Maria married Domenico Taigi who was a young pious man with a difficult and rather coarse character. Given that, Anna Maria was more concerned of his husband's virtue.

Their marriage was of highest Christian principles. With a profound understanding of social and moral values of the Christian marriage, Blessed Anna Maria made God the center of her home. She avoided anything that would disturb the family peace by being docile to her husband. She avoided anything that would irritate him. Despite the impoverished circumstances, Anna Maria was generous to the poor.

Out of the seven children she bore, three of whom died in childhood. She raised her two boys and two girls with the most accurate and complete religious secular education.

To love God and to serve him in everything was her greatest desire. She was greatly devoted to the Holy Eucharist, to the Most Holy Trinity, to the Infant Jesus, to the Sacred Passion of Our Lord, and ever had the tenderest devotion to Our Lady.

On December 26, 1808, Anna Maria entered the Third Order of the Most Holy Trinity. She was enriched by God with the many supernatural gifts. The apparition of a golden luminous globe like a miniature sun was the most unusual gifts she received from heaven. She could see both present and future events anywhere in the world including the state of grace of individuals both living and dead.

Anna Maria realized that one of her role was to expiate the sins of others. She sustained great austerities for the poor souls in purgatory. These souls, once set free, came to thank her. When she touched the sick, they were cured. Others that she warned of their death, died in holiness and in state of grace. Anna Maria, in her life time, suffered in body and soul.

The Church declared her Blessed in 1920. Anna Maria died on June 9, 1837. Her mortal body lies in the Chapel of the Madonna in the Basilica of San Crisogono, Rome, Italy.

Blessed Anna Maria Taigi saw a major and as of yet still forthcoming Chastisement for the world: "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 will 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."

"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." (Prophecy of Blessed Anna Maria Taigi (1769-1837 A.D.) who was Beatified by Pope Benedict XV in 1920.)



Same prophetic vision was also foretold by Padre Pio, Elizabeth Canori-Mora, Rosa-Colomba Asdente, Palma d'Oria, in Italy; Father Nectou, in Belgium; St. Hildegard, in Germany; Pere Lamy, Marie Baourdi, Marie Martel, Marie-Julie Jahenny, in France. (This list is not exhaustive; many more mystics have announced the Three Days.) 

Here are a few quotes from these mystics: 

Sr. Elena Aiello

"The times are grievous. The whole world is in turmoil because it has become worse than at the time of the deluge! Everything is in suspense, like a thread; when this thread breaks, the justice of God will (strike) like a thunderbolt and will complete its terrible course of purification."

Padre Pio

NEW YEAR'S EVE 1949:  Jesus to Padre Pio

"My son, My son, I have been longing for this hour in which I again shall reveal to you the great love of My heart . . . Pray and make reparation to Me.  Admonish others to do the same because the time is near at hand in which I shall visit My unfaithful people because they have not heeded the time of My grace.  Persevere in prayer, so that your adversary shall have no dominion over you. Tell My people to be prepared at all times, for My judgment shall come upon them suddenly and when least expected – and not one shall escape My hands, I shall find them all!  I shall protect the just. Watch the sun and moon and the stars of the Heavens. When they appear to be unduly disturbed and restless, know that the day is not far away.  Stay united in prayer and watching until the angel of destruction has passed your doors.  Pray that these days will be shortened."  (Read more...(Read More...)

Venerable Elizabeth Canori-Mora (19th century, Italy)

“The sky took on a morbid blue color which terrified everyone who looked at it. A dark wind blew everywhere. An impassioned and mournful shrieking filled the air, like the terrible roar of a fierce lion, and resounded all over the earth in blood curdling echoes."  (Read More...)

Although the Church does not oblige us to believe in any particular prophecy as seen by the mystics, the question remains, "How could we explain that these people from different distant places were describing the same thing?"
