"Blessed Alexandrina da Costa" by Leo Madigan

We have already a copy of the “new extended edition” of the Leo Madigan’s book on the Bl Alexandrina, which is already available here.
This new edition, ‘dedicated to the memory of Francis Reynolds, 1931-2006, who was fundamental in founding the Alexandrina Society in May 1992’, stretches over 103 pages and consists of two parts, the first matches the original edition, and the second, which contains 16 pages of the ‘Sentiments of the Soul’ (1944).
In this  book you can read some of the most inspired pages ever written about the Blessed Alexandrina.

Saint Alexandrina?

Sure we believe that Bl Alexandrina Maria da Costa is a great saint, but it is not correct to declare her as saint before canonization, as we find here. Currently she is a Beata, blessed Alexandrina Maria da Costa.
There is in Italy also a Blessed Alexandrina, or better, Blessed Sandrina. Search for Bienheureuse Sandrine. She lived between 1385 and 1458, in Foligno.
