    St. Alphonsa, we are all proud of you especially that you have become Saint of India of this Century that too when the Christian people were targeted in most part of India. Let the sufferings of Christians be accepted by the Lord through you and grant peace to our country India. Let all our wishes be fulfilled in the name of Jesus Lord.

    Having studied with Srs. Lilly and Alice from St. Alphonsa's congregation, I am so happy that we can address her as Saint. St. Alphonsa, please protect and bless Sr. Lilly and Alice and all the people of India especially the Christians!

    Well written. Alphonsa is a model for the presnt time of suffering unleashed by people who refuse to recognise the dignity of human person and consider inflicting pain on others as a sign of victory.May the suffering Christians in India and around the world be supported by such heroic examples and the communion of such saints.Let the sufferings of thousands of Christians of today be accepted by the Lord together with those of Jesus crucified.
