SR. ALPHONSA (1921-1983)
Sr. Alphonsa worked in various convents in Kerala. She had her own views on religious life and often she had to face misunderstanding and criticism. She was actually a simple person, ready for service. She was constantly sick and that again brought her problems, because sickness in young people is generally misunderstood. She took it I her stride however, and remained cheerful. When she surprised everyone by dying a few years after her final profession, people regretted their harsh judgments. She must have laughed in Heaven.
