Elizabeth of Hungary (1207-1231): It is rare indeed to find someone in a place of power and privilege who is willing to lay it all aside for the sake of Christ and the Gospel. Yet this was the testimony of Elizabeth of Hungary, a medieval princess who spent her short life joyfully sacrificing her own comforts and resources for the poor and needy in her kingdom of Thuringia. A powerful symbol of Christian love and charity, Elizabeth also provides us with a remarkable link to the Protestant Reformation! Join us today for this beautiful and inspiring story of a woman who truly embodied the humble, sacrificial love of Jesus!
