The reason I haven’t posted for a while is because I have been reading the work of St Elisabeth of the Trinity and it has had a profound impact on me. To be perfectly honest, I don’t know where to start in writing about this remarkable Carmelite who was a near contemporary of St Therese of Lisieux and who died at the age of 26. Her life was fascinating and her theology and spirituality are quite remarkable. Anything I write cannot do her justice at all, so I’m going to content myself with giving the occasional quotation in future posts and, above all, to recommending her work wholeheartedly. Discover her for yourself – you won’t regret it!
St Elisabeth of the Trinity, pray for us.
