On 5th February 1950, the statue of the Pilgrim Virgin of Peace, “Our Lady of Fatima” was brought to Madurai from Portugal and kept for veneration at St. Joseph’s Convent for a few days. On that occasion, the Archbishop and Rev. Fr. Bonhoure suggested that the college for women to be started in Madurai could be named after our Lady of Fatima. Rev. Sr. Rose Benedict was born on 24th August 1898 in Leema, Canada. She lost her parents when she was very young. She became a member of the Congregation of Sisters of St. Joseph of Lyons in 1913 when she was fifteen years old. In 1924 Sr. Rose Benedict came to India as a missionary. Her catch word was ‘go ahead’. A person with vision and daring is to meet the challenges in life, She loved the downtrodden with a compassionate heart and dedicated herself in the service. On 27thDecember 1967 she passed away of lung cancer which she contracted inhaling cement as she supervised the construction Fatima College. In appreciation of her service to education, Madurai Kamaraj University honoured her by erecting her statue in the old University campus. The people of Madurai remembering her yeoman service conferred on her the title ‘Man of Madurai’.
