Book of Saints – Elisabeth


ELISABETH (Saint) Widow (November 5) The mother of Saint John the Baptist. There are legends and traditions extant concerning her; but our knowledge is really limited to what we gather from the first chapter of Saint Luke’s Gospel. In their commentaries upon this Gospel, however, the Holy Fathers often dwell at length upon the sanctity of her life.
