Lately, I’ve been drawing a lot of John Bosco cartoons for the upcoming Simply Saints book. It’s been a while since I sat down and drew a saint for fun. So I had a really good time channeling my inner queen for Elizabeth of Hungary.
I love Elizabeth for her example of how to live a virtuous married life. She was a sanctifying presence for her husband.
At first her husband, the king, wasn’t sure what to think about her charity, hence the story of the loaves of bread changing to roses in her arms to fool him. After living for years with her example and prayer, he was asked what he though about all the money and food she gave to the poor. The good man replied, “So long as she does not sell the castle, I am happy.”
Saint Elizabeth of Hungary pray for me so I can serve God in my family. Make me a sanctifying presence in our home.
