Daily Quote from St. Elizabeth of Hungary, Religious

Charity of St. Elizabeth of Hungary - by Leighton

“[When] she led her friends to the cemetery, [she] said to them, ‘Remember that we too shall one day be but dust… Here lie the bones of the dead; these people were once living like us, and are now dead as we shall be; that is why we must love God. Let us kneel down and say together: Lord, by Thy cruel death, and by Thy dear mother Mary, deliver these poor souls from their sufferings; Lord, by Thy five sacred wounds, save us.'” (St. Elizabeth of Hungary, Religious; 1207-1231 A.D.; Life of St. Elizabeth, page 152)
