Description

Blessed Alexandrina: Living on the Eucharist alone

According to her Vatican biography, from March 1942, for about 13 years until her death. Blessed Alexandrina received no food except for the Holy Eucharist, and her weight dropped to approximately 73 pounds.

Based on the advice of a priest, Blessed Alexandrina’s sister kept a diary of Alexandrina’s words and mystical experiences. According to her Vatican autobiography Jesus spoke to her, at one point saying: “You will very rarely receive consolation… I want that while your heart is filled with suffering, on your lips there is a smile”. In 1944, she joined the “Union of Salesian Cooperators”, offering her suffering for the salvation of souls and for the sanctification of youth.”

Tradition of oils

The tradition of anointing with sacred oil is very old indeed. It is used in sacraments and also as a devotional practice. The sick person applies the oil and blesses themselves. As they do so, they are asked to pray to whomever the oil is dedicated to. The Irish blessings oils do not have miraculous power.  It is God who has the power to heal.  Applying the oil while praying are important ways for us to express our faith in God’s power. Moreover, by doing so we place our trust in God.

 The Irish Blessings oils are dedicated to the Holy Spirit, Our Lady and the saints. The oils come through prayer.  They are placed on their designated altars for a period of prayer before being sent out. The oils are of therapeutic grade.
The bottles of oils going out are accompanied with a prayer card. In addition, they are personalised for the saint to whom the oil is dedicated to.
