  • The story of Blessed Anna-Maria Taigi, a woman singled out at the age of twenty-one, to receive revelations from Our Lord and the Blessed Mother, which continued until her death. In her visions she foresaw much of the political turmoil that took place during her life most significantly the French Revolution and subsequent weakening of the Church's temporal authority. She also read the state of souls, both living and dead. Despite these miraculous gifts, she was content to fulfill her station in life as the wife of a poor serving-man and the mother of seven children. Wife, Mother and Mystic chronicles the events of an extraordinary life and yet, the great lesson of this biography is not found in the extraordinary, but in this modest woman's constant, hidden "striving after holiness" in her most ordinary tasks.

  • Albert Bessières, S.J.

    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.
