“Two days before Giuseppina took her first Holy Communion in 1947 – while her mother with two other women, Lina and Maria Colavecchio, were making cakes for the occasion – she was playing all alone near her house where today the little church stands. Suddenly Giuseppina saw a little soft shiny cloud descending from the sky on which a baby of superhuman beauty was sleeping.
It was Baby Jesus!
The little cloud stopped at about one meter from the little seer. As Jesus opened His eyes which were of incomparable sweetness, He stared and smiled at her. Giuseppina, ravished by the vision, would have wanted to touch His little feet, kiss His eyes, hold Him in her arms, but her arms stretched out could not reach Him. “Mummy, Mummy” she cried out repeatedly, hoping her mother would arrive in time to get Him. Her mother rushed out at once with the other women but, before she arrived, the apparition disappeared. The young girl kept on looking up at the sky, longing to see Jesus again who, in the semblance of His own childhood, had privileged her with a visit before she would have received Him sacramentally. Her mother and the women who were with her were overtaken by overwhelming emotion. They too searched the sky for a long time but with no success, while sharing the joy of hearing from Giuseppina’s lips the details of the wonderful vision. Baby Jesus’ smile remained indelibly imprinted in the little seer’s heart, making her foresee that God would have come again to smile at her. She grew up with this hope and in loving expectation.
She incessantly repeated:
«I love you, Jesus, I love you so much,
I rely on You; do not leave me alone.
Do of me as You please;
May Your will be done».
