St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Comments

Elizabeth Bayley Seton was the first native born American to be canonized by the Catholic Church. Born two years before the American Revolution, Elizabeth grew up in the "cream" of New York society. She was a prolific reader, and read everything from the Bible to contemporary novels. In spite of her high society background, Elizabeth's early life was quiet, simple, and often lonely. As she grew a little older, the Bible was to ... Continue Reading

    St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, I am inspired by the holy life you led and I consider you to be the patron saint of teachers and of Catholic Schools. Help us teachers in forming and moulding our students and giving them Christ like values. Help children especially those whose parents neglect giving them Catholic/Catechism lessons and in the process deny them the preparation they need for receiving the Sacraments. Please pray for all these children. Amen.

    I'm Reverend Mother now and I want to say, she gave of herself unselfishly to do the will of God. That is what those of us that are called to do the will of God to do. I'm happy to do His Will.

    I NOTICED THAT MANY PEOPLE ASKED ON THIS COMMENT BOARD WHY ST. ELIZABETH WAS CANONIZED A SAINT. Well I want to answer their questions. She was canonized because of the fruits of her work on earth, namely her religious order. In fact when someone is canonized two miracles are needed to make them a saint. Well one miracle occured but the Vatican skipped the second miralce and caonized her anyway. This is because of all the good works that occured through her religious order when St. Elizabeth started it and to this day.
    I hope that this was helpful. I also want to mention that St. Elizabeth is the parton of homeschoolers just so you know. May God bless you. St. Elizabeth Ann Bayely Seton, pray for us!!!
