Our personal touch: St. Elizabeth (1207-1231) was married to Louis IV of Thuringia Hungarian princess. She devoted her life to the poor. According to legend, she was secretly hidden in bread to the poor clothes. Her husband did not want her to do it. One day Saint Elizabeth lies to him saying she has flowers in her coat. But when her husband asks her to open it found only a bouquet of roses.
