THE FEAST OF ST. ELIZABETH OF HUNGARY!
Happy Feast of St. Elizabeth of Hungary! This week I've grown very close to St. Elizabeth of Hungary as I read about her life. In fact, since I am a laywoman, her life is almost more applicable to me than that of St. Clare. Nonetheless, St. Elizabeth has shown that even though she didn't wear the habit of the Seraphic Order, she was no less a Franciscan than the traditional Franciscan Saints. Her life has taught us that our station in life shouldn't hold us back from being in love with the Franciscan Order and embracing the way of St. Clare and St. Francis.
Below is a lovely poem/prayer for this Feast of St. Elizabeth of Hungary:
