Saint Alphonsa Muttathupadathu (Malayalam:അൽഫോൻസാ മുട്ടത്തുപാടം; Alphonsa dell’Immacolata Concezione; (19 August 1910 – 28 July 1946) is a Catholic Saint, the second person of Indian origin to be canonized as a saint by the Church and the first canonized saint of the Syro-Malabar Catholic Church.
Her guiding principle: “Grains of wheat, when ground in the mill, turn in to flour. With this flour we make the wafer of the holy Eucharist. Grapes, when crushed in the wine press, yield their juice. This juice turns into wine. Similarly, suffering so crushes us that we turn into better human beings. -Saint Alphonsa to novices
