    i feel such a connection to this saint! i chose her for my confirmation name because i share her compassion and willingness to help the poor, and i had a brother who died at a young age, so this saint really speaks to me.

    I figured out the answer. In case anyone wants to know he is also called Ludwig. Is her feast day November 17 or 19? Because I am writing a saint report for my Confirmation. I love her!!

    The reason I chose St. Elizabeth of Hungary for my saint is because of what she went through with her husband's family after he died. I went through the same thing with my husband's family before and after my husband died. Except I wasn't stripped of my crown. But also because she cared for the sick. I work as a nurse aide @ a hospital.

    I'm afraid, there are small mistakes in the article about this wonderful saint. Her father was not Alexander (in Hungarian: Sandor) but Andrew (in Hungarian Andras or Endre, both forms are used). In Hungary her feast day is the 19th of November, not the 17th (see the first comment). I know, that in the Catholic Church the days of the saints are not necessarily the same in all countries.

    I chose St Elizabeth because my Grandpa was very sick and I started to pray to her for him!
