A Holy Little Girl and her First Communion Prayer

Ave Maria Meditations

Revealed to the Childlike: thoughts of a little girl. 

“Dear Jesus, today I’m going out and I’m going to my nuns to tell them I want to make my First Communion…Jesus, come soon into my heart and I’ll hug you very tight and kiss you. O Jesus, I want you to stay for ever in my heart” …  

“Dear Jesus, I love you so much, I want to tell you again I love you so much. I give you my heart. Our dear Lady, you are so good, take my heart and carry it to Jesus” …

“My good Jesus, give me souls, give me a lot of them, I ask you willingly, I ask you so that you make them become good and so that they can come to you in Paradise” …

“Dear Jesus Eucharist, I am so very, very happy that you have come into my heart. Never leave my heart, stay for ever and ever with me. Jesus, I love you so, I want to let myself go in your arms and do what you will with me … 0 loving Jesus, give me souls, give me a great many!. .. ”

“Today I was a bit naughty but you, good Jesus, take your child in your arms …but help me, because without your grace I can do nothing…help me with your grace, help me, for without your grace I can do nothing…I beg you, good Jesus, keep for me always grace of soul” … 

“Dear crucified Jesus, I love you and am so fond of you! I want to be with you on Calvary. Dear Jesus, tell God the Father that I love him, too. Dear Jesus, give me your strength for I need it to bear this pain that I offer for sinners.”

“Dear Jesus, tell the Holy Spirit to enlighten me with love and to fill me with his seven gifts. Dear Jesus, tell our Lady that I love her and want to be near her. Dear Jesus I want to tell you again how much I love you.”


Antonietta Meo (+1937), affectionately known as Nennolina, was six and a half years old when she died in Rome, Italy. Her reputation for sanctity spread immediately. Her cause for canonization is underway.

Our Lady found this unworthy lukewarm person and obtained for her the grace to enter the Third Order of the Franciscans of the Immaculate. May this person spend all eternity in showing her gratitude.
