Little Nellie of Holy God, Ellen Organ,


This is Little Nellie of Holy God.

Little Nellie was a small girl from Cork, Ireland, who endured the pain of tuberculosis. Her Jawbone was partly rotten and she had a curved Spinal Cord.

Most of her lifetime was spent in pain and as sickly as she was, she still preached Jesus to the Nurses taking care of her and prayed fervently. A Nurse once asked her if she met 'Holy God,' and her response was, "I'm not good enough yet"!

At four years old, she was permitted by the the Pope to receive Holy Communion. Little Nellie was the youngest child in Ireland at that time to receive Holy Communion at the tender age of 4 years and 9 months, and shortly after her first Holy Communion, she died.

She was buried in Cork and after one year and Six months in the grave, her body was exhumed found to be incorrupt. Her body was found intact and in fact, more beautiful. 

Little Nellie is on her way to Sainthood but she needs our help.

So please share this post and make her known.

Prayer to Little Nellie of Holy God

O Jesus, dear friend of little Children, we thank you for the signal graces conferred on Your holy servant, Little Nellie, by inspiring her with such great devotion to Your sacred passion, and such ardent love of the Blessed Sacrament.

Grant, we beseech You, O Lord, the fulfilment of Your designs regarding Your loving little servant, for Your great glory and for the sanctification of Souls.

We adore You, O Jesus, ever present in the Blessed Sacrament. We pray that Your sacred presence may be honoured daily more and more, that the little ones whom You desire to come to You, may approach Your holy Table. Amen.
