St. Elizabeth – Patron Saint of Difficult Marriages
St. Elizabeth of Portugal was married to a philandering husband in 1283 when she was just 15. She prayed constantly that he would change his ways. St. Elizabeth devoted her life to helping the poor. She established hospitals for the sick, helped abandoned infants and provided dowries for poor brides. She was able to get her husband to reform his wandering eye. She even helped mend a longstanding rift between her son and his dad. So if you’re dealing with a difficult marriage or family situation, ask St. Elizabeth of Portugal to help you.
