    I'm in the process of selecting a confirmation name and St. Elizabeth is very high on my list. For those of you looking for additional information on Elizabeth Seton, check her out on Wikipedia. It goes into more detail about her early life as well as providing links to additional articles. God Bless.

    Thank you so much for this article. I have a relic of hers and am praying to her to intercede for me for a miracle of healing for my husband. I didn't know much about her until I searched this sight. I had this relic for a long time. I am expecting God's favor and total healing.
