Alphonsa Muttathupadathu is the second person of Indian origin to be canonized as a saint by the Roman Catholic Church and the first canonized saint of the Syro-Malabar Catholic Church, an Eastern Catholic Church of the Saint Thomas Christian community. Hundreds of miraculous cures are claimed for her intervention, many of them involving straightening of clubbed feet. Many such cases were submitted to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints as proof of her miraculous intervention. In 1923 she was badly burned on her feet when she fell into a pit of burning chaff. This accident left her permanently disabled. Pope Benedict XVI cleared Sister Alphonsa's name for canonisation on 1 June 2007, a process that was started 55 years ago. She died on 28 July 1946, aged 35. Her tomb is becoming a pilgrimage site these days as miracles are reported by some devotees.Answered by sumati gayki, 10 May '10 09:07 am
