A simple life of prayer and penance led to Sainthood
Carmelite nun. Anna Maria Redi was a native of Florence, Italy. She entered the Carmelites in 1765 and took the name Sister Teresa Margaret. She died at the age of twenty-three, but in the very brief time of her life in the cloister, she displayed a remarkable prayerlife and a deeply penitential demeanor. She was canonized in 1934 by Pope Pius XI (r. 1922-1939).
