LITTLE NELLIE

On the island of Ireland
God ordained that ‘Little
Nellie’ would be born and
In her short life witness to
His Son in the Eucharist.
~
A little girl open to sainthood
Because of her love for Jesus
As the Bread of Life and her
Love of those who lovingly
Attended her in her illness.
~
And as time moves on I hope
That the will of God will ensure
That little Nellie will be canonised
As an example of love for our
God and humanity.
~
Her life as I review it is an example
For others to the commitment of
Gods love and service, whether by
A child or an adult, in fact a unique
Example from a child less than five…
~
Oh, Little Nellie, please pray for us
As we journey the life that you shared
With Jesus and help us to bring others
To become his followers and evangelisers
Wherever we may dwell.
