St Anna Schaeffer Life History

Anna Schaeffer was the Daughter of a poor carpenter. Anna dropped out of school at age 14 to work as a maid and had hopes of a religious vocation, but her father’s death left her working to support the family, and she was a lifelong laywoman.

In 1898 she received a vision of Christ who warned her that she had many years of pain ahead of her.

She was paralyzed by an industrial accident in 1901 when she fell into a vat of boiling water and lost the use of her legs.

From her sickbed, she carried out an apostolate through correspondence. Known for her devotion to the Sacred Heart. May have received the stigmata but always tried to hide the signs of it.
