  Antonietta Meo's life

The value of pain

Although she was very young, she showed comprehension and love for redemptive pain that you can't explain if you don't admit the intervention of an extraordinary Grace. She understood that everyone can and must complete in himself Jesus' pain for the salvation of every soul.
She thought of pain in a personal way, as a reward to Jesus for all the pain He suffered. She understood that her pain could lessen the ones of Jesus who keeps suffering not in His physical body but in His mystic one, in the battle fields, in the many ways through which men suffer.
"You know, mum? I offered my leg to Jesus for the conversion of the poor sinners and so as to bless all the soldiers in Africa."".
To her father: "Pain is like fabric, the stronger it is, the more it's worth".
To her mother: "When you feel pain, you have to keep quiet and offer it to Jesus for a sinner. Jesus suffered so much for us, but He hadn't committed any sin: He was God. How could we complain, we who are sinners and always offend Him?".
To her spiritual guide: "For an instant I lie down on my wound, so as to offer more pain to Jesus".
If anyone asked her how she felt, she answered she was fine.
She didn't want anyone to pray for her recovery, but to pray to do God's will. "I want to stay with Him on the cross because I love Him".
