St. Elizabeth of Hungary

When Elizabeth was young, she married the prince of Thuringia. He loved her for her kind manner and devotion to God, but his family didn’t approve. She spent hours in prayer in the castle chapel and took clothing and food to give to the poor. One day her husband’s relatives and friends complained to the prince that Elizabeth was giving away too much food. When he went to her, the bread in her basket had turned to roses. From that day on, her husband supported her acts of generosity.
