We have one of the only St. Alphonsa rosaries available and it is heirloom quality. This is the name of a 20th Century saint who endured much suffering. She lived in India. At age 13 her feet were badly burned and she was disabled. She joined a convent and became a teacher. On several occasions she seemed to be near death, yet recovered. She died at age 35 and miracles began to be associated with visits to her tomb.
