Event details

St Elizabeth of the Trinity was born on this day in 1880 and a entered a Carmelite convent at the age of 21. Addison's disease was diagnosed barely two years later, when she was 23. This was before the discovery of cortisone and the condition was then untreatable. The three years of her final illness were painful and debilitating, as reflected in her letters and writing from this time. She died on 6 November 1906. Her canonisation as a saint took place in 2016, in recognition of her theological contribution to the. Catholic church. You can read more about her life and the inner strength of her faith throughout her illness in the Living Well section of the members' forum.
