Today is the Feast of St. Elizabeth of Portugal (July 5th in U.S. & July 4th elsewhere). St. Elizabeth was the Queen of Portugal and was known for her acts of mercy for the poor and her works for peace. Her charity to the poor and her continuous endeavours to prevent hostilities breaking out between her relatives the Kings of Portugal and Castile, were characteristic of her sanctity. After the death of her husband (A.D. 1325) she took the habit of the Third Order of Saint Francis, and devoted herself to good works.
