Servant of God Elisabeth Leseur

Elisabeth and her husband lived a wealthy, sophisticated lifestyle in France. It was fashionable to think that religion was only necessary for the poor or ignorant. Elisabeth began to have a change of heart. She converted and became a Catholic. Her husband, even though he loved her, never accepted the fact that his wife believed in Catholicism. He ridiculed her and her faith. She accepted it all with patience and poured out her heart in her journals. She offered up her sufferings for him. After her death, Elisabeth’s husband found her journals. Inspired by his wife’s perseverance, he became a Catholic and later a Dominican priest.
