Pope Benedict XV beatified Anna Maria Taigi on May 30, 1920.
Many other marvels might be mentioned of this holy woman in connection with the Blessed Sacrament; such, for instance, as occurred in the Church of San Carlino, the same where she had so fervently assumed the habit of the Third Order of the Trinitarians. An Irish priest was saying Mass, and Anna Maria was waiting to receive Communion, when behold! upon his turning round to the congregation holding aloft the Sacred Host and pronouncing the words: 'Ecce Agnus Dei; ecce qui tollit peccata mundi' [Behold the Lamb of God, behold him who takes away the sins of the world] the consecrated particle flew from his hands and rested on the lips of the servant of God.
