BLESSED ALEXANDRINA (4)

Adolescence

After returning to Balasar, Alexandrina was soon living in an area called Calvary, in a small house that her mother had inherited. At the age of twelve, she worked for a while at the house of a neighbour, Lino Ferreira, who wished to seduce her, but she rejected his advances.

Alexandrina was by this time a catechist and a singer in the church. She was very active in the practice of charity, without losing the qualities of playful girl and proud of her physical vigour.
