Blessed Alexandrina Maria da Costa, DVD, victim soul, model of purity, available worldwide on DVD from Mary's Dowry Productions
Blessed Alexandrina Maria da Costa:
She was just fourteen years old when this spirited and humorous Portuguese girl chose to jump out of a high window so as to escape an attack upon her purity. Her spine was irreparably injured in the fall and she soon found herself bedridden for the rest of her life at the age of twenty. She did not despair however, and amidst unspeakable pain she entered upon an astounding vocation - to embrace a specific calling by Christ as a 'Victim Soul'. In this documentary, the life of Blessed Alexandrina Maria da Costa presents a deeply absorbing, thought-provoking and inspiring look at the deep love of Our Lord for mankind, Faith and virtue, at reparation, devotion to the Most Holy Eucharist and the need for mankind to convert. Beatified by Pope John Paul II in 2004 Blessed Alexandrina has been proposed by the Church as 'a model of purity and perseverance in the Faith for today's youth".
