Little Nellie was not yet four and a half when God took her to Heaven, but she had already made her First Holy Communion. Nellie received five of the seven Sacraments. Before she died, she received Our Lord 32 times. She knew that in Holy Communion she was receiving God and she always called Him "Holy God." When the Holy Father, Pope St. Pius X, heard about Little Nellie he cried: "There! That is the sign for which I was waiting!" Then, the Holy Father said that children could receive Holy Communion when they were little. They would no longer have to wait till age 12. Little Nellie is called the Little Violet of the Blessed Sacrament. Perfect to teach children love and reverence for Our Lord in the Holy Eucharist! 31 Pg. PB. Eccl. Approb.
