Blessed Alexandrina Maria da Costa of Portugal (1904-1955), one of the great mystics of modern times, was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 2004. A ‘victim soul’, chosen by Christ to suffer in atonement for the sins of humanity, she was bedridden for life from the age of twenty after sustaining injuries while escaping from an attacker.

She mystically underwent the Passion of Christ on Fridays and her sufferings helped to shorten World War II. Her astounding life has many connections to the events of Fatima and she is known in Portugal as ‘the fourth seer of Fatima’. She urged all to “Do penance, sin no more, pray the Rosary, receive the Eucharist “.

For the last thirteen years of her life she miraculously lived on the Holy Eucharist alone, a medically confirmed fact. She has been proposed by the Church as “a model of purity and perseverance in the Faith for today’s youth “.

Jesus said to Alexandrina on 22 November 1937: "I desire that, after your death, your life may be known, and that will happen; I shall see to it. It will reach the ends of the earth."

This is an excellent summary of the life of Blessed Alexandrina - why not buy a number of copies to give to friends, leave at the back of church, etc.
