Prayer to St Alphonsa
Most lovable Alphonsa, you were chosen by the almighty and everlasting Father to share in the profound mysteries of the passion, crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. In holiness you grew and were crowned with heavenly glory. You are indeed a proud child of the Indian Church. We commit our motherland and ourselves to your care.
Oh! Doleful daughter of God, grant that following your example, we may discern the hand of Providence in our troubles and tribulations. We beseech you to help us resign ourselves to the will of God and be with you in heaven. Amen.
