Saint Elizabeth of Portugal
Saturday, 04 July 2020

Elizabeth was the daughter of King Peter III of Aragon. Her birth in 1271 prompted reconciliation between her father and grandfather. With a reputation for reconciling she became “the Peacemaker.” Married at 12 to Denis, King of Portugal, she bore him two children.

Elizabeth led a life of prayer and good works, caring for the poor and the sick. When her son twice led rebellions against his father, she helped them reconcile. After her husband’s death in 1325, Elizabeth joined the Poor Clares.

After reconciling two warring kings, her son and grandson, she died on 4 July 1336. Canonized in 1625, Elizabeth is a patron of Catholic charities.
