Saint Marie Alphonsine saved a girl by lowering down her Rosary 


Saint Marie Alphonsine Ghattas (1843-1927), recently canonized by Pope Francis in Rome, was favored with several Marian apparitions.

Our Lady confided to her one day during an apparition her great desire to found a Palestinian congregation that would bear the name of the Sisters of the Rosary. She even saw in a vision nuns dressed in a blue habit, while she heard at the same time the Virgin reproach her for her slowness to act on her request.

The apparitions of Our Lady left her languishing to give herself totally to God. "I was hungry to endure hardship. I delighted in all that was bitter and painful. Loneliness was paradise to my heart and obedience was the heaven of my mind. I found the orders of Superiors easy to follow," she wrote in her diary. The congregation finally materialized in 1880.

The life of Marie Alphonsine was marked by the recitation of the meditated rosary, and her intense prayer obtained miracles while she was alive. In 1885, a girl from the school of the Sisters of Jaffa in Galilee, near Nazareth, having fallen into a tank full of water, was saved when Sister Marie Alphonsine lowered down her Rosary to the girl.
