St. Alexis of Wilkes Barre, pray for me a sinner.

I just found out about St. Elizabeth the New Martyr, whom I understand to be a descendant of St. Elizabeth of Hungary. Was St. Elizabeth the New Martyr a convert from Catholicism or Protestantism? I've read conflicting things.

St. Elizabeth of Hungary was one of my special patrons as a Roman Catholic. Do we know if St. Elizabeth the New Martyr had any private devotion to her Roman Catholic namesake?

I would love to learn more about this Orthodox saint and convert.

The grand duchess was raised as a Lutheran. Christopher Warwick wrote a beautiful biography of her.

Kelly has spoken.

As it has been said, let it be done.

Thanks! I'll have to check that out.

She has a Wikipedia entry if you want to learn about her.

She's pretty cool. GD Elizabeth was named after her, and her paternal grandmother.
