Kerala born little girl named Anna chosen by Jesus
To carry HIS sufferings right from her childhood precious!
She became Saint Alphonso -lived hardly years thirty five
A symbol of carrying the sufferings of her supposed spouse.
She wrote in her spiritual diary:
“I do not wish to act or speak according to my inclinations.
Every time I fail, I will do penance…
I want to be careful never to reject anyone.
I will only speak sweet words to others.
I want to control my eyes with rigour.
I will ask pardon of the Lord for every little failure
And I will atone for it through penance.
No matter what my sufferings may be, I will never complain
And if I have to undergo any humiliation,
I will seek refuge in the Sacred Heart of Jesus”.
Yes, she is in the Sacred Heart of Jesus blessing all
An Indian born great Saint- taking care of all standing tall
Today is HER feast day- let us take care of the poor and feed
Show our concern for the world on this holy day- a great need!
