St. Elizabeth of Hungary........November 17

Patroness of the Franciscan Third Order and of all Catholic Charities.

You taught St. Elizabeth to recognize
and serve Christ in the poor.
Grant, through her intercession,
that we may always lovingly serve the needy
and the oppressed.
from: "Lives of the Saints"

Read about St. Elizabeth

The following comes from Janette. Thank you. It's just too precious not to pass on.

St Elizabeth of Hungary, when she was a little girl and used to play about the palace with her companions, would always pick a spot near the chapel so that every now and then, without being noticed, she might stop by the chapel door, kiss the lock, and say to Jesus, "My Jesus, I am playing, but I am not forgetting You. Bless me and my companions. Goodbye."

This is a beautiful card and text. As Thanksgiving is approaching we need to always be mindful of the many blessings that God has given to each of us, and be generous with our time and gifts that we have recieved. A blessed day to all! John K.
