The Feast of Saint Elizabeth of Hungary

Today the church celebrates The Feast of Saint Elizabeth of Hungary. Elizabeth, who died at the age of 24, was the wife of Louis IV of Thuringia, and mother of three. As a widow, she became a Franciscan tertiary, dedicated to the needs of the poor and the sick. Canonized only four years after her death, she is the patroness of the Franciscan Third Order and of Catholic Charities.
