A new saint

Would you like to have a deeper relationship with God? Would you like to better hear what He is saying to you? Would you like to learn contemplative prayer? Would you like to be transformed? 

Praise God! Because there's an intercessor for YOU! Her name is Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity and Pope Francis announced that she would be canonized on October 16. I had chosen her as a patron "blessed" for My Soul Proclaims last year (just knowing she'd be a saint soon!) and I can attest that through her intercession, my prayer life has been transformed. 

Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity's vocation was inspired by St. Therese of Lisieux and it is no wonder that she also wrote what her mission in Heaven would be:

"I think that in Heaven my mission will be to draw souls by helping them to go out of themselves in order to cling to God by a wholly simple and loving movement, and to keep them in this great silence within which will allow God to communicate Himself to them to transform them into Himself." (L335) 

How much do we need this help today! And what's beautiful is that Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity wants to help. It gives saints great joy in Heaven to be asked for their intercession and favors because all glory goes to God.

Let us ask for her intercession. It can be as simple as an Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be as we begin to pray. I also invite you to read her writings.
