Just a few years after her birth in 1207, Princess Elizabeth of Hungary was promised in marriage to a son of the governor of Thuringia. At the age of four, she was sent to the castle of Thuringia to live with the family of her future husband, Lewis.
Once, after Lewis and Elizabeth were married, the chief farmers told Lewis there would be no food that winter because Princess Elizabeth had given it all to the poor. Lewis responded, “Have no fear my good men. Son long as my princess helps the poor, God will take care of us.” Reading this story of St. Elizabeth of Hungary can help us see that God will indeed take care of us when we give of our time and treasure to help those in need!
