Elizabeth was the daughter of the King of Hungary in the early 13th century. Her peers chastised the princess for her generous love of the poor. One day, she was confronted by someone, but when Elizabeth opened her cloak, the person saw roses - not the bread Elizabeth was concealing! Elizabeth was a loving wife and mother, but after her husband was killed during the crusades, she became a Franciscan tertiary.
