Till you are better and do what He wants you to do…


“Mudder, go down to Mass,” she would say, “and get Holy God and come back to kiss me. Then you can go back to the chapel again.” ….

Her strength was failing day by day; the end was close at hand. On Thursday, the 30th of January, Mother Francis came to see her. Knowing that the child’s life was nearly spent, she spoke of what was dearest to her heart. “Nellie,” she said, “when you go to Holy God, will you ask Him to take me to Him? I am longing for Heaven.” The child looked searchingly at Mother, and her wonderful eyes seemed to glow with some preternatural light. Then she answered solemnly: “Holy God can’t take you, Mudder, till you are better and do what He wants you to do.”

(Mother Francis lived to be 99 years old. She died in 1960 at the Good Shepherd Home in St. Paul, Minnesota.) – See more at:http://www.mysticsofthechurch.com/2011/03/nellie-organ-little-nellie-of-holy-god.html#sthash.U3AjzNd8.dpuf
