Celebrating Sr. Alphonsa

I’ve mentioned here before that there is clearly a very deep interest and devotion to the newly canonized Sr. Alphonsa of the Immaculate Conception that we’re not very aware of here in the Church in America.  (Or at least my little corner of it!) 

This article, published Sunday, makes that point well:

Over 100,000 take part in function for Saint Alphonsa

Kottayam (Kerala), Nov 9 (IANS) Over 100,000 people Sunday evening took part in a celebration at the St. Mary’s Church, Bharananganam, which has the tomb of Saint Alphonsa.It was on Oct 12 that Blessed Sister Alphonsa was canonized at a function held in the Vatican and became the first native Indian to be canonized.
