A Little Servant of God

Antonia Meo, "known by her nickname 'Nennolina,' ... "had one of her legs amputated in 1936, when she was 5 1/2 after doctors diagnosed a malignant tumor" [and] "died a year later," leaving evidence of "a life of truly extraordinary mystical union" ─ Pope approves 'heroic' virtues of 6-year-old girl on her possible path to beatification. She would "be the youngest, non-martyr saint." I have found a new intercessor for my daughter. Nennolina, pray for us.
