St. ELIZABETH OF HUNGARY

Christian Saint

Patron Saint of Hungary and Beggars. And Hungry Beggars!

She was a Hungarian princess devoted to the poor and acts of charity. An early widow, there was a lot of subterfuge to stop her using her royal inheritance.

Her brother-in-law drove her and her three children out of the family castle. She lived in poverty and squalor apart from being able to turn loaves of bread into roses.

This must have impressed her brother-in-law as he repented and allowed her land to build a hospital. Now she is the patron saint of the Poor, Bakers and Bread Makers.
