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's life is so much something I can aspire to as a pattern in my own life at present: many temporal pitfalls, disappointments, tragedies, losses and struggles. Yet she had this compulsion to know and serve Our Lord and care for his children more deeply and more completely as the response to the many setbacks in her earthly life. God please make me more like her!

    I was born the day she was cannonized and my name is Charity, I guess you could say we have many things in common, may she pray for me so that I may become as Holy as her.

    Hello...Just would like to say that Mother Seton was '47' years old when she died...you have her listed at 46 and that is wrong and should be corrected.

    Other than that...I absolutely love Mother Seton as did my own mother :)

    Thank you.

    My sister and her husband lived in Emmitsburg and my parents saw St. Elizabeth's home there. I am presently helping out at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish here in Tucson. Tuesday night we are having a special Mass for the Feast Day so that will be special. I also saw the movie of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton and it is worth watching.
    Her life can be an inspiration especially her devotion to the Eucharist.

    My mother made me promise to read, "The Lives of the Saints." before she died. After the tragic death of my son, Eric, I did read it. In a memorial placed in our local paper I included a poem by St. Elizabeth Ann Seaton...little did I know she was the Patron Saint of Dead Children. Her words spoke to my grieving heart. Someone said, "It was just a baby." No matter what the age or circumstances of ones child's death; all of our children's lives and souls are valuable in the eyes of all that love them.
