Ordinary Time

For a large part of the liturgical year, we devote ourselves to listening to the mystery of Christ in all its aspects unfolded as we seek God's truth and understanding.

Saint of the Week

Thirty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time

Elizabeth of Hungary, Wife, Mother and Religious

Saint Elizabeth lived a short but intense life, dying before her 25th birthday. She was the daughter of Alexander II, King of Hungary, and she married a holy man, Louis of Thuringia. Together, they lived a simple life, practicing penance, and devoting themselves to works of charity. When tragedy struck and her husband was killed, Elizabeth renounced the world and became a nun, devoting herself to the care of the sick until her death.
