The following story was told by Father Umberto in his Cristo Gesù in Alexandrina and in his interview transcribed in O que dizem de Alexandrina (What people say about Alexandrina). We gathered information from the two sources.
In 1956, a nun of the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians was in her bed, unwilling to accept her situation of immobility and severe pain. One day, Alexandrina, whom she did not know, appeared in her cell. Sitting beside the bed, she had an interesting conversation with Alexandrina for about ten minutes, who asked her to sacrifice herself for the world, which is in need of victims.
Before bidding farewell, her hands on the irons of the bed and with very sweet and smiling eyes, Alexandrina, calling her by name, said to her:
- Courage! You will experience how good Jesus is, how good, how good!
Then she disappeared.
From that moment the life of the poor patient changed.
