Little Nellie was not yet four and a half when God took her to Heaven, but she had already made her First Holy Communion!
When the Holy Father, Pope St. Pius X heard the story of Little Nellie he cried: "There! That is the sign for which I was waiting!" He then went on to officially lower the age of 1st Communion.
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!
