Elizabeth at the age of four years is promised in marriage to Louis, son and heir of the ruler of Thuringia, and to receive an education appropriate to her future rank of Dutchess of Thuringia, Elisabeth is forced to leave her native country to the court of Thuringia.
She had a happy marriage: “If I love so much a mortal creature – she used to say – how should I love more the Lord.”
With the approval of her husband, Elizabeth devoted much time to prayer and practice generosity works of mercy for the poor, the lepers, the sick and needy.
One of the most famous miracles is the miracle of the bread turned into roses. One day she met Louis as she ran down the street with her apron full of bread for the poor. He asked her what she was carrying, and when she dropped her apron instead of bread appeared many magnificent and fresh roses.
We too can turn to this great Saint Elizabeth, the glorious one who can become advocate for our sins. Hasten to be refreshed when hungry, young people recognize the one who raises the dead, the girls see in her shine the virtue of chastity, she can become a support and their comforter.
