«Love for your mother – said the priest – prompted you to shield yourself with your body, and you gave, like Jesus, your life for her, out of love. Little and dear heroine, how you resemble Jesus in that gesture of yours. Today you are and will always be in Heaven. Your youth has now blossomed forever in heaven.”
