St. Alphonsa, a Biography
Alphonsa Muttathupadathu (August 19, 1910 July 28, 1946) is the first Indian women to be elevated to sainthood. She was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 1986 and decided as a saint by pope Benedict XVI on March 1 2008. It was officially declared on October 12 2008.
Sr. Alphonsa was born on 19 August 1910. Her baptismal name was Anna and was affectionately called Annakutty.
Annakutty believed that a Carmelite nun had appeared to her and advised her to become a nun. She read the biography of St.Threse of Lisieux which instilled in her a strong desire to become a saint.
Therefore she resisted all compulsions to yield to marriage proposals. When she was compelled to attend her betrothal ceremony, she sought to escape from it by voluntarily stepping into a pit of burning husk.
Her feet were badly burnt and had to be confined to bed for several weeks. Her aunt finally relented to her desire and permitted her to join a convent.
Annakutty joined the clarist Convent at Bharananganam and received the veil of postulants on 2nd August 1928 with the name Alphonsa in honour of St. Alphonse Ligouri, whose feast day it was. Her vestition was held on 19th May 1930.
In 1984 the pope officially declared that Sr. Alphonsa had heroically practiced Christian virtues. A miracle wrought through her intercession was also formally approved by the Holy See on 16th July 1985. She was beatified by Pope John Paul II on 8th February 1986 at Kottayam and decided as a saint by the pope Benedict XVI on March 1 2008. It was officially declared on October 12, 2008.
All Indians are proud to have St. Alphonsa , the first Catholic saint in India, born of Indian parents, lived and sanctified her life in India.
So, the college is proud to hold St. Alphonsa as the patron, for her great ideals of determination, sacrifice and commitment to the society.
