St. Elizabeth of Portugal, Pray for Us

The grand-niece of the great saint, Elizabeth of Hungary, this Elizabeth is known as a great peacemaker, intervening in several battles to stop fighting.  She was a Third Order Franciscan, taking care of the poor and ill as well as personally caring for poor young women by paying their dowries so they could marry.

St. Elizabeth of Portugal, pray for us today on your feastday.
