  • Saint Elizabeth of Hungary

    I recently watched a Children’s animated show about Saint Elizabeth of Hungary. This was on EWTN a Catholic tv station broadcast in America and around the world.

    First I was impressed to see that the station dedicated a half hour of each day to a children’s show that showcases figures of the middle ages. The crusades and the Saints, Knights , Kings and regular people of Catholic Europe are brought up in a positive light. But we also get to understand the challenges that good willing people of the middle ages faced.

    With regards to the show this morning that talked about Saint Elizabeth Of Hungary... the first part of the show discussed Robin Hood and the values of fighting for the poor. This was something that I was very happy to see. To now know that children across America in Catholic families and non-Catholic families who watch ewtn Get to learn about the great figures of the Middle Ages.

    Saint Elizabeth Was born to the king of Hungary in the 13th century. She would later Marry to Louis a knight who went on the sixth crusade and died fighting for the holy land. Elizabeth always had a Soft side for the poor something her husband respected. But members of Her Husbands family disagreed with Elizabeth using her royal gains to help the poor. She was thrown out of her castle upon the death of Louis only to be rescued and reinstated by her late husbands supporters when they returned from crusading. Elizabeth could have gone on to a life of Riches but she decided to use a position of power to help those in need.

    Though Elizabeth died very young at the age of 24 she was renowned for helping the poor and showing that all lives matter not those of the rich and elite. In Hungary and through Europe her name evokes pride to this day.

    Saint Elizabeth of Hungary’s Story

    In her short life, Elizabeth manifested such great love for the poor and suffering that she has become the patroness of Catholic charities and of the Secular Franciscan Order. The daughter of the King of Hungary, Elizabeth chose a life of penance and asceticism when a life of leisure and luxury could easily have been hers. This choice endeared her in the hearts of the common people throughout Europe.——-
