Eucharistic Sanctuary in honour of Blessed Alexandrina
2016-05-09

On the past 25th of April, day in which we celebrated the 12th anniversary of Alexandrina Maria da Costa beatification it was publicly presented the new Eucharistic Sanctuary project in honour of Blessed Alexandrina of Balasar. The Sanctuary is going to be one of the biggest Cristian spiritual centres of the country with the main theme the Eucharistic.

In the description of the Sanctuary image, the vicar and president of Alexandrina of Balasar’s Foundation, Manuel Neiva, describes it as “a simple building”, as Alexandrina was, nothing spectacular. The project was studied and elaborated to transmit the message and life of Alexandrina of Balasar, based in three fundamental points: Eucharistic (he is the Eucharistic Victim), Jesus crucified (offers all the suffering as a victim to the sinners and salvation to the souls) and Our Lady, who she calls Mommy, and her motto Love, Suffer and Repair.

The building has a shape of a tent. In the bible, tent and tabernacles symbolize God’s address in the middle of his people. We can say that it was the first tabernacle. The cross in direction of the highest, symbolises the love of Alexandrina to Jesus the crucified and his suffering for the salvation of the souls. The roof in shape of a cloak, symbolises Our Lady, that many times would cover him with her cloak. The interior contemplates: the tabernacles and the adoration chapel which occupies the centre of the Sanctuary, the ship of the assembly with capacity for 2500 people seated, the weakly Eucharistic chapel with capacity for 150 people, the confession chapel and the tomb chapel of Blessed Alexandrina. All of this divisions have a view to the tabernacles.

Regarding the exterior space of the Sanctuary there will be a place to do Camp Masses and other celebrations.

In sonance with vicar Manuel Neiva, the Archbishop of Braga D. Jorge Ortiga stated that “it is very good to have a more complete idea of how the Sanctuary will be, centre of spiritualty and shelter to the pilgrim”
