Pope Canonizes India's First Female Saint, Alphonsa

Oct 12- Pope Benedict XVI celebrated mass to canonize India's first female saint, Sister Alphonsa Muttathupadathu, who disfigured herself to avoid marriage so she could become a nun.

Alphonsa, who died in 1946 at the age of 36, lived in 'extreme physical and spiritual suffering' and was an 'exceptional woman'.

Alphonsa was so determined to enter a convent that she stepped into a fire to disfigure her feet so that her aunt would stop pressuring her to marry. After her death, numerous miracles were attributed to her and her burial place in the Kerala town of Bharananganam became a pilgrimage site, especially for those seeking relief from ill health.
