Saint Elizabeth of Hungary
Transcript of Saint Elizabeth of Hungary
Theology, Period B
25 February 2013 ("Catholic Charities of Corpus Christi, Inc.") Biography Saint Elizabeth of Hungary was born in 1207 in Hungary. She was born into royalty, and her marriage with Ludwig was arranged at a very young age. When she was four, Elizabeth was sent away to prepare for her marriage, which took place ten years later. After marriage, Elizabeth became a very charitable person. She handed out grain to the poor and built a hospital near the castle. When she was 20, Ludwig died. She continued with her charity all the way up to her own death in 1231. Stories One legend says that one night, Elizabeth was carrying a large package when she ran into Ludwig. Ludwig opened the package to see a large bunch of roses; however, it was not flower season. He was fascinated by this and took one of the roses to keep forever. After Ludwig's death, Elizabeth was thrown out of the castle. She spent her life wandering the cold streets, but never gave up her charity. Elizabeth continued to work at all of the hospitals she had built and gave out whatever amount of food she could find. Due to her charitable works, Elizabeth has many hospitals and non-profit organizations named after her today. She represents the good that comes from helping those in need, whether sick, poor, or lonely.
