This week’s bulletin insert focuses on the difficulties faced by St. Elizabeth. It sounds a bit like the pastor’s letter that goes to all new members of our parish. They are greeted with the words, “Understanding that there is great pressure to “have it all together,” I hope that you find at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton parish a place where you can be poor and broken. We all stand before God in need. We are invited to be poor together. This is a beautiful contradiction to the individualism that defines so much of the society we live in. I hope you find in this parish family a safe place to be poor and taken care of, to be broken and made whole.”
Check out the bulletin insert to learn more about the way that Elizabeth endured great suffering at the bedside of her beloved husband, Will. As much as she love her husband, she called the will of God, “Adored Will.” What a great trust in divine Providence!
