Though it wouldn't seem Saint Elizabeth of Hungary had anything to do with royalty she was. She was the princess of Hungary and at the age of 14 she was married to Louis IV of Thuringa, and had three kids. I selected her as my saint because she reminded me of my grandma, very selfless, loving, caring, and giving. I have always looked up to my grandma as someone I wanted to be like and when I read about Saint Elizabeth of Hungary I knew that was the Church name I wanted to take on. I feel like if I have the name of someone I look up to I am destined and motivated to be just like them.

Some of Saint Elizabeth of Hungary's symbols are alms, bread, flowers, the poor and a pitcher. One cool fact about her is that one day she was going to give bread to the poor and it was all bundled up in her blanket or sheet. When her husband asked her what was in there she opened it up and it appeared to be flowers.

For a living Saint Elizabeth of Hungary gave all her time and talent into serving the poor and the sick and making sure they had something to eat. She also built a hospital that contained twenty-eight beds and made sure she attended each one of the patients needs. She is important to the Church for her gentle, selfless, and chartiable personality towards the poor and sick. She is also the patroness of the sisters of the Third Order Secular of St. Francis. Someone that was influential to Elizabeth was her confessor in 1225, Father Conrad of Marburg, he gave her difficult obstacles that she over came and helped her throughout her life.

She was born on July 7, 1207 and she lived in Sarospatak, Hungary from 1207-1231. Saint Elizabeth of Hungary had become very ill and died on November 17, 1231 in Marburg, Germany. She was canonized a saint only four years after she died in 1235 by Pope Gregory IX.
