Brides of Christ

by Andrea Elizabeth

In looking for a favorite icon of Elizabeth of Constantinople, I came across this story of a Carmelita nun, Elisabeth of the Trinity, who was recently canonized by Pope Francis. She was inspired by St Therese of Lisieux and St Teresa of Avila to pursue contemplative prayer. Her intercessions are attributed to healing a man of cancer.

Here’s Elizabeth of Constantinople’s wonder-working story.
