Summary of Bl. Elizabeth of the Trinity's Life

Elizabeth died of Addison’s disease in November 9, 1906. Her dying words were “I am going to Light, to Love, to Life.” In her own words:
“Let us live with God as with a Friend. Let us make our faith a living thing, so as to remain in communion with Him through everything. That is how saints are made. We carry our heaven within us, since He who completely satisfies every longing of the glorified souls in the light of the Beatific Vision, is giving Himself to us in faith and mystery. It is the same thing. It seems to me I have found my heaven on earth, since heaven is God and God is in my soul. The day I understood that, everything became clear to me, and I wish I could whisper this secret to those I love in order that they also might cling closely to God through everything."
Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity, pray for us!
