This lovely holy card depicts St. Elizabeth of Hungary holding a cloth full of roses and giving a beggar some bread.  St. Elizabeth is the patroness of widows and widowers.  On the back of the card is the following prayer:

Dear Saint, you were always poor in spirit, most generous toward the poor, faithful to your husband, and fully consecrated to your Divine Bridegroom.

Grant your help to widows and widowers and keep them faithful to their heavenly Lord.  Teach them how to cope with their loss and to make use of their time in the service of God our Lord.


The card comes with a round pewter pendant of St. Elizabeth.

St. Elizabeth Of Hungary

St. Elizabeth Of Hungary Feast Day:
Roman Rite Calendar - 11/17

Patron Of: Bakers, Countesses, Falsely Accused, Nursing Services, Tertiaries

    Princess, the daughter of King Andrew II of Hungary. Great-aunt of Saint Elizabeth of Portugal. She married Prince Louis of Thuringa at age 13. Built a hospital at the foot of the mountain on which her castle stood; tended to the sick herself. Her family and courtiers opposed this, but she insisted she could only follow Christ's teachings, not theirs. Once when she was taking food to the poor and sick, Prince Louis stopped her and looked under her mantle to see what she was carrying; the food had been miraculously changed to roses. Upon Louis' death, Elizabeth sold all that she had, and worked to support her three children. Her gifts of bread to the poor, and of a large gift of grain to a famine stricken Germany, led to her patronage of bakers and related fields.

    1207 at Presburg, Hungary

    1231 at Marburg of natural causes; her relics, including her skull wearing a gold crown she had worn in life, are preserved at the convent of Saint Elizabeth in Vienna, Austria

    27 May 1235 by Pope Gregory IX at Perugia, Italy
