Quote of the day, 8 November: St. Elizabeth of the Trinity

I am going to Light, to Love, to Life!

Saint Elizabeth of the Trinity
Her dying words

On the 7th and 8th of November, she kept almost constant silence. Yet these words could still be heard: “I am going to Light, to Love, to Life! . . .”

The night of the 8th to the 9th of November was very painful. Asphyxiation was added to her other sufferings. Toward morning, her acute pains abated. The alteration of her features showed she was on the point of dying.

The community was called. Elizabeth’s eyes were now wide open and luminous. Almost without anyone noticing, she stopped breathing. It was around 6:15 in the morning.

Prophet of God, Elizabeth of the Trinity belonged henceforth to the entire Church.

Conrad De Meester, O.C.D.
