A Story of Saint Elizabeth Seton By: Brother Ernest, C.S.C.

share on Facebook


Elizabeth Bayley, known to us as Mother Seton, was born in New York in 1774. Her mother died when she was still young and her father remarried. When she was nineteen she met her future husband, William Seton. Both her and her husband belonged to the Anglican church but after her husband died God had plans for her. After reading a book about the life of St. Francis de Sales and much prayer she took instructions in the Catholic Faith. Reading this story can encourage us to follow in the footsteps of Saint Elizabeth Seton because even though she had much to suffer she turned to God and in the process helped others on their path to Him as well.
