Saint Teresa Margaret of the Sacred Heart was born Anna Maria Redi to a large family in Arezzo, Italy. After attending the boarding school of the Benedictine nuns of St. Apollonia's in Florence, she entered the monastery of the Discalced Carmelites in Florence, taking the name Teresa Margaret of the Heart of Jesus.

Teresa Margaret was a very private and spiritual person. Her meditation on the words "God Is Love" transformed her knowledge of God in a mystical way. She seemed to have a premonition of her death, which was at the young age of 23.

Her incorrupt body lies in the monastery in Florence.
