Joyous Feast

Today is the feast of Saint Elisabeth the New Martyr and our daughter's Namesday! We love Saint Elisabeth so much! She was the granddaughter of Queen Victoria, became a Grand Duchess when she married into the Russian royal family, forgave the man who murdered her husband, sold all of her jewels and worldly possessions, and became a nun. She served the downtrodden of Moscow along with the other nuns of the Saints Mary and Martha convent and was arrested and martyred by the Bolsheviks in 1918. Holy Grand Duchess Elisabeth intercede to God on behalf of us! 🖤
