“I am not complaining anymore! Our Lady told me that she will come for me”


Jacinta Marto, one of the three young children to whom the Virgin Mary appeared in Fatima (Portugal), had been ill since December 1918. She had surgery on February 10, 1920, and suffered a lot after that. The sharp pain came back every time the bandage was changed. Her groan was, "Ouch! ouch! ... O Our Lady!" She said to Jesus, "You can convert many sinners, because I suffer so much!"

Some days later, the Virgin Mary came to the hospital, at the foot of her bed, to comfort the girl, telling her that soon she would come and take her to Heaven. From that moment, Jacinta no longer showed signs of suffering. She confided to Mother Godinho: "I am not complaining anymore! Our Lady said that she will come for me, and that she is already taking away all my sufferings. "

The doctor confirmed that the pain of his little patient had disappeared and that she could pass the time pleasantly by looking at holy pictures, including one of Our Lady of Sameiro, the famous shrine of the Immaculate Conception near Braga. The child said it was one that reminded her most of the Virgin who appeared to her. On February 20, 1920, around 10:30 pm, little Jacinta died quietly, in the odor of sanctity.
