The Rev. Father Albert Bessières, S.J., was a Jesuit priest and author of the twentieth century. His Wife, Mother and Mystic: Blessed Anna-Maria Taigi records the various events of the titular holy woman's extraordinary and miraculous life, in an edition translated by the Rev. Stephen Rigby. Father Bessieres' work, edited by Douglas Newton, was originally published by Sands & Company, London, in 1952. It has since been reprinted several times by TAN, beginning in 1970, with the Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur.
