Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity was a discalced Carmelite nun who was born in France on July 18, 1880. She is a patron against illness, patron of sick people and of those who have lost their parents. She died at the age of 26 on November 9, 1906, in Dijon, France from Addison’s disease, an illness which, at the time, had no known cure. She wrote much correspondence, many personal notes, poems and a diary. But, her most famous writings are her four spiritual treatises: Heaven in Faith, The Greatness of our Vocation, Last Retreat, and Let Yourself Be Loved. Saint John Paul II beatified her in 1984.
