Description

Gold Plated Lithography with Saint Elizabeth

Saint Elizabeth came from Heraklia, Thrace and lived in the 5th century AD. Her parents could not have a child for many years until Saint Glykeria finally answered their prayers and a little later they had a baby girl, whom they named Elizabeth. She was orphaned early, but her faith was her support. She gave her fortune to the poor, freed the slaves and left for Constantinople. She arrived at the monastery of George the Great Martyr, where she became a nun and lived with hard fasting and exercise, while it is said that she always walked barefoot and that she was never washed with water except with her tears. Such was her Grace, that the Virgin Mary herself announced her end.
