Saint Elizabeth of Portugal

Elizabeth, the daughter of Peter III of Aragon and Constance of Sicily, was born around the year 1270, in Zaragoza, Spain. She was a very special girl whose pious character was already known during her childhood years, and which was further reinforced with an advanced education.

Blessed Elisabeth Canori

There are two things that I think about when I read about the life of Blessed Elisabeth Canori . The first is that her life was no different from many women today who are abused by their husbands. Of course this is something cruel, but such abuse has repeated itself throughout history. When thinking about such harsh treatment, how different it is to see such unjust or difficult situations when viewed from the eyes of faith and trust in God.

Devoted to Love

Today I would like to talk to you about the first married couple that has been beatified in the history of the church: Luigi and Maria Beltrame Quatrocchi. They were beatified by St. John Paul II on Sunday, October 21, 2001; the same day that the 20th Anniversary of the apostolic exhortation, “Familiaris Consortio”, was celebrated, that showed the role of the family in our society in the modern days.
