Elisabeth of the Trinity to Be Canonized Oct. 16

This morning in the Consistory Hall of the Apostolic Palace, Pope Francis presided at the celebration of Terce and at the ordinary public consistory for the canonisation of the Blesseds:
– Salomon Leclercq ( Guillaume-Nicolas-Louis Leclercq), 1745-1792, French, of the Brothers of the Christian Schools, martyr;
– Manuel Gonz¡lez Garc­a, 1877-1940, Spanish, bishop of Palencia, founder of the Children of Reparation and the Congregation of the Eucharistic Missionaries of Nazareth;
– Ludovico Pavoni, 1784-1849, Italian priest, founder of the Sons of Mary;
– Alfonso Maria Fusco, 1839-1910, Italian priest, founder of the Congregation of the Sisters of St. John the Baptist;
– Elisabeth of the Holy Trinity (Elisabeth Catez), 1880-1906, French professed religious of the Order of Descalced Carmelites.
The Pope decreed that the Blesseds be inscribed in the Book of Saints on Sunday 16 October 2016.

Of these five, Elisabeth of the Trinity has gained particular renown in English-speaking countries, as the “spiritual sister of St Therese of Lisieux.

Elizabeth was born in 1880 and died of Addison”€™s disease in 1906, five years after entering the Dijon Carmel. She was declared Blessed by Pope St John Paul II in 1984.
