Blessed Alexandrina Maria da Costa
She was just fourteen years old when this spirited and humorous Portuguese girl
chose to jump out of a high window so as to escape an attack upon her purity.
Her spine was irreparably injured in the fall and she soon found herself
bedridden for the rest of her life at the age of twenty. She did not despair
however, and amidst unspeakable pain she entered upon an astounding vocation -
to embrace a specific calling by Christ as a 'Victim Soul'. In this
documentary, the life of Blessed Alexandrina Maria da Costa presents a deeply
absorbing, thought-provoking and inspiring look at the deep love of Our Lord
for mankind, Faith and virtue, at reparation, devotion to the Most Holy
Eucharist and the need for mankind to convert. Beatified by Pope John Paul II
in 2004 Blessed Alexandrina has been proposed by the Church as 'a model of
purity and perseverance in the Faith for today's youth".
In 2007 Mary's Dowry productions created a new form of film media to present
the lives of the saints. Mary's Dowry Productions recreates stunning silent
visuals, informative, devotional narration, and original contemplative music

journey of faith, history and prayer with this inspiring Blessed.
