Happy Feast of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton! The word fierce comes to mind. St. Elizabeth Ann Seton was a powerful witness in her work. She was a passion-driven wife, mother, and educator who was able to see and experience at least some of the people she impacted. The Holy Spirit was absolutely upon this woman. […]
