Bl. Elizabeth of Mantua Biography

Bl. Elizabeth of Mantua was born to a wealthy family and received some formal education, instruction in meditation by her mother and was taught Latin by her father so she could read the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Her mother died when she was young and she and her sister joined the third order of the Servites.

Elizabeth was noted for her holiness, humility and gentleness as she attracted many other young women to the Servites. Many of whom formed a community under Elizabeth’s direction.
