Therese Neumann (1898 - 1962)

Born on Good Friday in Konnersreuth, Germany, Therese was blinded and paralyzed in 1918,
and thereafter developed appendicitis, pneumonia, digestive problems and deafness. Therese appealed to Saint Therese of Lisiuex, to whom she was especially devoted, and after seven years of intense suffering her maladies were cured. During Lent in 1926 she received in her side the stigmata of Christ's lance wound; in November of that year she received the wounds of the Crown of Thorns. In March, 1929, on her shoulder appeared a wound caused by carrying the Cross, and she received the marks of the scourging on her back. From 1926 until her death she survived without food or water, consuming only the Holy Eucharist. Therese experienced many other mystical gifts, including visions, cures, recognition of relics, and prophecy.

Shortly after the end of WWII when asked if America will experience war on its soil, she replied,

"No, but at the end of this century America will be destroyed economically by a series of natural disasters."
