Saint Elizabeth of the Trinity with Bible
Restored Photograph

Elizabeth of the Trinity (1880-1906) was a Carmelite nun from France known for her quiet mysticism and deep devotion to God. At age 17, she was visiting a Carmel monastery near her home, when the Mother Superior said another Carmelite nun named Therese from the town of Lisieux had just died. She gave a copy of the first edition of Therese's Story of a Soul, which was being circulated amongst the Carmelites, to young Elizabeth. It changed her life. As she read Therese's story, Elizabeth understood how God was working in her heart and leading her to the Carmel. (source: www.catholicnewsagency.com)

Elizabeth was admitted when she was 21. She wrote in a letter at that time, ""I can't find words to express my happiness. Here there is no longer anything but God. He is All; He suffices and we live by Him alone"

She endured great suffering with a hormonal disease. In addition, the Carmel was in a state of uncertainty. The local bishop had been removed by the Holy See because of scandal, and the convent itself was threatened with confiscation by the French government. Yet she lived in peace. "We must be mindful of how God is in us in the most intimate way and go about everything with him. Then life is never banal. Even in ordinary tasks, because you do not live for these things, you will go beyond them."

Towards the end of her life, she called herself, "Laudem Gloriae," which means "praise of glory." She said, "I think that in Heaven my mission will be to draw souls by helping them to go out of themselves in order to cling to God by a wholly simple and loving movement, and to keep them in this great silence which will allow God to communicate Himself to them and to transform them into Himself." (sources www.ncregister.com, wikipedia.com)

She left many letters which have been collected into two volumes. Canonized in 2016. Feast Day: November 9. Patron against illness. We hope that our restored photograph helps you draw closer to her, and thus closer to Jesus.
