 Our Description

 

Francis Johnston

 

Crippled at the age of fourteen when she jumped out of a window to escape from a rapist, Alexandrina da Costa (1904-1955) spent her years after twenty as an invalid, living in the small Portuguese town of Balasar. Like Therese Neumann, she suffered the Passion of Christ on Fridays in expiation for sins. Her spiritual director considered Alexandrina to be a second St. Margaret Mary because of her conversations with Our Lord. During the last 13 years of her life she ate and drank nothing-except daily Communion. Medical researchers examined her and could find no natural explanation for this phenomenon. People revered Alexandrina as a saint and flocked to see her that they might speak with her and implore her prayers. Her constant message to them was the same as Our Lady's message at Fatima: "Do penance, sin no more, pray the Rosary, receive the Eucharist." According to the evidence in this book, Alexandrine, through her prayers and sufferings, was instrumental in shortening World War II.  Her writings were approved in Rome during 1979. Alexandrina: The Agony and the Glory is the story of a great and heroic victim soul and positive proof that sanctity exists even in our day.

Imprimatur: Dermot, Archbishop of Dublin, January 1979.
