Saint Elizabeth of Hungary (1207-1231)
Patroness of Widows - Brides -- Young Girls - the Poor
A Precious Child of Jesus Over the years, we have written about Saints under different headings: Powerful Saints, Visionaries, Mystics and Stigmatists, Holy Innocence, Defenders of the Faith, and all of these special titles are true. However, most of these Saints would also fit into the category of this book, as they were truly maligned, misunderstood and mistreated. This book could be filled with countless men and women Saints who were maligned, misunderstood and mistreated. However, in this book, we are endeavoring to bring you Saints who fit into that category, but whom we have not yet written about. St. Elizabeth of Hungary is one of those Saints.
This is the story of a precious child of God, who was born into royalty, yet never used or abused it. It is the story of a great woman, a daughter, a wife, a widow, a benefactress of the poor, a glowing example of a soul endeavoring to love her Lord more purely, yet faithful to her calling as wife and mother. As the story of her life unfolds, you will see, in addition to the titles attributed to her above, we could add these below to the number: Patroness of bakers, beggars, charitable societies, charitable workers, countesses, parents who have lost children to death, the innocent who are falsely accused, homeless people, hospitals, those having problems with in-laws, nursing homes, people in exile, the faithful persecuted for their love of Mother Church, Sisters of Mercy, Tertiaries (Third Order), and on and on. Quite a rich list for one whose life would be snuffed out at the young age of twenty-four!
