On the 13th October each year, the #SalesianFamily celebrates the Feast of Blessed Alexandrina Da Cost. When she was 14 years old she jumped from a window into the garden at home to safeguard her virtue when it was under threat from some evil-intentioned young men. Five years later, the damage caused by the fall left her totally paralysed, and she was bed-ridden for more than 30 years. She was looked after by her older sister. Blessed Alexandrina, Pray for us!
