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.

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.

As you know, this webpage was created specifically for families; as such we thought it would be appropriate to take a look at the long history of lay people and couples who have had a huge impact on our faith and our Church.
