St. Elizabeth of Hungary (1207-1231)
The daughter of a king, Elizabeth led an austere life, practiced penance, and devoted herself to works of charity despite her nobility. When her husband died leaving her with three children, she renounced the world and became a third order Franciscan. She built a hospital and devoted herself to caring for the sick.

Reflections from the Saints

Let us understand that God is a physician, and that suffering is a medicine for salvation, not a punishment for damnation.
