One day Fr. Pinho, SJ, well-known Spiritual Director of Alexandrina, also went to Balasar for a few days of preaching. The parson confided to him that he had a patient with some signs of something supernatural in her life, but he doubted it all. Fr. Pinho soon offered to visit her and to do all in his power to discern the signs. He was promptly invited to bring him Holy Communion at the end of Holy Mass. He willingly accepted.
Concentrated, taking the Blessed Sacrament and remembering what the parson had confided to him, he humbly whispered to the Lord:
- If you are present and acting the wonders of your grace in this soul, should give me a small signal.
Arrived, goes up the stairs, sees Alexandrina with her alive look as if waiting for Our Lord. When the ritual prayers were done, it was time to show the Holy Host, saying, "Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!", and, without knowing how, the Sacred Host disappears from his hands to see it immediately in Alexandrina’s mouth, who is surrounded by the grace of Communion, the greatest and most striking moment of each of her days.


In recent years we have been writing and publishing our historical monograph on Balasar. The following small volumes are published:

Meditation itineray

In one of the small plots of land annexed to the House of the Blessed Alexandrina, an original path for meditation on the message of her life and work was inaugurated at the end of 2017. Remarkable thing!
It begins with a square column on whose top, on each face, is the portrait of the Beata. In the soil, one reads the motto "To love, to suffer, to repair". The second step consists of a statue of Our Lady in stone, the Heavenly Mother, who always supported her in suffering. Then comes a stele with the copy of an icon representing Jesus, the Master of the school where Alexandrina learned.

Square column that begins the meditation path on the life and work of Blessed Alexandrina. In the last plane, other steps of this route and panels with allusive phrases are pointed out.

Now begins the walk of the Passion with the suggestion of the Garden of Gethsemane. Meanwhile, one can read many of the Beata's phrases on the next walls. The following moment is a stone square bench, in whose center is a stone table: it suggests the Cenacle and a pause for reflection aided by the transcriptions read on the neighboring wall. There is then a tank to which a spout of water flows; a panel clarifies its meaning with the phrase of the Gospel "I thirst." The column representing the Praetorium and the Flagellation is next seen. Further on, a cross stands on a rounded stone block (quartz) that appears to represent the globe. The walk concludes with a tall white ladder that symbolizes the Resurrection. Everything always accompanied with Alexandrina's quotations.
This course is dominated by the brilliant idea of ​​visually entwining the steps of the Passion of Christ with the experiences of Alexandrina. The fundamental of her life and work points to it and it does not make sense that the attention of the people visiting her house is directed to facts more or less accessory, secondary.

On the Blessed Alexandrina birthday

Blessed Alexandrina would complete today 112 years if she were alive.
I put here a short text she once wrote. It does not speak of her birthday, but of another birth, when she would go to Heaven:

When will my day arrive,
The day of my engagement?
Oh, happy day,
When I will be able to see my God for ever,
And enjoy Him eternally,

Face to face!

The Passion Visibly Relived

Between 1938 and 1942, Alexandrina relived, during ecstasy, the Passion of Jesus with accompanying actions which enabled the few people in her room to follow the order of events during that most painful way of the cross in its brutal cruelty; but it constituted a guarantee that the request for the Consecration of the World to the Immaculate Heart of Mary was of divine origin. On March 27, 1942, she suffered the Passion in form of physical participation for the last time.
The following Friday, April 3, Good Friday, she did not again suffer the Passion externally but relived it in her heart.
On the same day, Jesus told her:
- Fear not, my daughter, you are no longer nailed to a cross. The crucifixion that you now experience is the most painful that can be imagined in history (SoS[1], 03/04/1942).
Alexandrina reliving the Passion: contemporary painting.

[1]Sentiments of the Soul, Alexandrina’s largest work, is a kind of diary.
