The Feast of Saint Elisabeth

It has been one hundred years since the Bolsheviks martyred Saint Elisabeth and her companions.  


Causing meekness, humility and love to dwell in thy soul,
    Thou didst earnestly serve the suffering,
    O holy passion-bearer Princess Elizabeth;
    Wherefore, with faith thou didst endure sufferings and death for Christ, with the martyr Barbara.
    With her pray for all who honor you with love.

Saint Elisabeth's life can be found here.
