Prayer for the Beatification of Venerable Servant of God, Antonietta Meo


O God, Father of the humble, we thank you because in Antonietta Meo (Nennolina) you gave us a living image of your Love and your Wisdom, revealed to the meek. You, who gave her the grace to be joined to the Cross of the Lord Jesus and to suffer with fortitude and joy, make her glorious also at this time on earth, that she may be for all a shining example of faithfulness to the Gospel. Grant us her same simple love that burned for the Eucharist and the Church; come to us in our poverty and, by her intercession, according to your Holy Will, give us the grace which, with trust, we ask You. Amen. (Pater, Ave, Gloria)


"Dear Jesus, I love you so much, dear Jesus, I want to abandon myself in your hands....help me with your grace, help me, because without your grace I can do nothing." (from the letters of 'Nennolina,' aged six.)


Headquarters of the Cause : Basilica S. Croce in Gerusalemme, Piazza S. Croce in Gerusalemme, 12 - 00185 Rome - Italy
