Feast Day: February 4th

Marriage, however, proved to be a cause of much suffering for Elizabeth as her husband had a mistress and was squandering the family resources on her. She offered herself to God for the conversion of her husband, who also became a compulsive gambler, a heavy drinker and a shady businessman. Elizabeth's inner pain was as deep as her conviction that the divine law of wedded fidelity admitted no exceptions. Elizabeth died on February 5, 1825.
