Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton
Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton is the first American born Saint to be canonized in the Catholic Church.
She experienced many losses in her life, including that of her husband to tuberculosis after they moved to Italy.
The many enforced separations from dear ones by death and distance served to draw Elizabeth's heart to God and eternity. The accepting and embracing of God's will - "The Will," as she called it - would be a keynote in her spiritual life. Elizabeth's deep concern for the spiritual welfare of her family and friends eventually led her into the Catholic Church.
On March 25, 1809, Elizabeth Seton pronounced her vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience, binding for one year. From that time she was called Mother Seton.
Saint Elizabeth is the patron saint of in-law problems, against the death of children, widows, death of parents, and opposition of Church authorities.
Her feast day is January 4.
