Saint Elizabeth of Hungary
Presented by Sr. Mary Bernadette Kapfer
St. Elizabeth was the daughter of King Andrew II of Hungary and married Louis IV, Landgrave of Thuringia, but she always had a heart for the poor. She was known for her generosity and even delivered bread to the poor in secret. After her husband died in the Sixth Crusade, she defied her family’s insistence that she remarry, took a vow of celibacy, and used her dowry to open a hospital for the poor.
