    Accepting and loving sufferings,shame, abuses, sickness etc.. with humility and joy, the Lord revealed Himself in her. She is always a role model for all priests and religious.

    She was a great lover of her crucified spouse that is why she accepted so much pain and sufferings until her death.

    I wish to sublimate the sufferings we indians endure as 120 churches, 46 institutions, 86 believers including two priests and some nuns all put to soil, with St Alphonsa's sufferings and sainthood, explained in the articles.

    Really she is a holy saint and powerful in god. Showering blessings and doing miracles with the power of her prayer even today.

    I am an Indian catholic, proud of the first saint from our home, St. Alphonsa. Thank you very much for the good narration of the saint of our time. I was blessed to write a script for a live visual presentation based on her life of suffering to the crown. We all who participated thank God in a special way. I am excited to say that I has gone through 3 days of suffering during the recording, practice and presentation of it. Praise God.
