Happy Namesday, Sugar Plum!


Causing meekness, humility and love to dwell in thy soul,
Thou didst earnestly serve the suffering,
O holy passion-bearer Princess Elisabeth;
Wherefore, with faith thou didst endure sufferings and death for Christ, with the martyr Barbara.
With her pray for all who honor you with love.

How came you celebrate today Saint Elisabeth of Russia? I thought her day was on the 25th of January. Or not?

Thank you,
Alexandra

I love this photo! We celebrate on the 18th (long story, but the date really is the 18th for both calendars, even though our church still does the 5th!). The first time my Elizabeth saw that photo, she was just barely 3. She saw it, and I said, do you know who that is? She immediately replied - that's my saint! Her only exposure to images of St. Elizabeth before that was through icons, so it was a moving thing to see her recognize this picture - she just knew without being told.
