St. Elizabeth of Hungary spent her life differently than most saints. Instead of living in poverty like St. Francis of Assisi, she lived most of her life in a castle surrounded by incredible wealth. By the age of four she was already engaged to be married and was sent far away from her home to live with Louis, her husband-to-be, who was only 10 years old. Elizabeth was ridiculed by those she lived with because of jealousy and because she tried to be holy. She longed to live in poverty and gave away all of her things. When she emptied the store houses of grain for the poor, Jesus would miraculously fill them again. Paper.
