In related good news, we have also published a new work to spread devotion to Saint Elizabeth. It is entitledElizabeth of the Trinity “Elizabeth of the Trinity – A Life of Praise to God.” It was translated by Julie Enzler, a professor at the Avila Institute.

In our noisy culture, Elizabeth of the Trinity reminds us of God’s power to establish in us a profound and peaceful stillness. She reminds us that that the Trinity is our home, and that God has created us in order to be united to Christ.

In these pages, Sister Giovanna della Croce presents a brief and readable introduction to the teachings of Elizabeth of the Trinity, showing us the truth path to contemplative prayer.

    “…of the Trinity.” She could have used “God” instead. Showed that she was thoughtfully, realistically, Roman Catholic.

      Indeed, very Catholic. And, it was a common addition to names in various countries in those days. Most, if not all, of my mother’s 10 siblings had “of the Trinity” appended to their names, my mother included, God rest her soul. (My grandparents, on my mother’s side, were born in the 1800’s!)
