Saint Alphonsa

Saint Alphonsa was born on 19th August 1910 in an ancient Catholic family, called Muttathupadam in the village of Kudamaloor, Kottayam district, Kerala. She was the fourth child of Joseph and Mary. She was prematurely born and her mother died a few months after her birth. She was given the name Anna at her baptism. Annakutty had her primary education at a Catholic school at Arpookara, Kudamaloor. Later she was transferred to the Government school at Muttuchira. Annamma was a disciplinarian but she loved and cared for Annakutty. She planned to groom her into an accomplished homemaker. However young Annakutty who had read the biography of St. Therese of Lisieux yearned to become a saint.
