St Elisabeth lived a short life. After her husband, King Louis IV died, she moved into a nice house in Marburg, where she lived a life of extreme penance and intense love forgoing food and sleep. She used her wealth to create a hospital in honor of St. Francis of Assisi. She worked in the care of the sick until the last breath exhaled at the young age of twenty-four years. It is noteworthy the miracle of the bread turned into roses. It is said that one day Louis saw her as she ran with her apron full of bread for the poor. When he asked what she was carrying, Elizabeth dropped her apron, and instead of bread appeared magnificent and fresh roses.
