On November 17, the church commemorates Princess Elizabeth of Hungary (1207-1231), who refused to live the lifestyle common of a monarch and instead dedicated her life to service. She is known for her care of the sick and her generosity to the poor. As we remember Elizabeth, let us pray for all those who care for others, especially hospitals and caregivers.
