Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton

Two hundred years ago, on January 4, Heaven opened its gate to welcome Elizabeth Ann Seton, the founder of the Sisters of Charity and the first American-born saint. “Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, the first native-born citizen of the United States to be canonized, offers a model of Christlike living for all ages. Her life was real, her way realistic for believers who are also called to holiness.” (Sr. Betty Ann McNeil, 15 Days of Prayer with St. Elizabeth Ann Seton.)
