O blessed St. Elizabeth of Hungary, you understood well the trials and sufferings of a widow. You lost your beloved husband at a young age and raised four children alone.
You truly knew what it meant to trust in God’s providence and believe that God would always provide.
You adapted to new conditions and became a humble blessing to those around you.
Look with compassion upon all who are widowed, especially (name person). Present their needs to God and plead their cases before Him.
Ask that He bless them with peace, patience, courage, wisdom, hope and renewed faith.
Plead with Him to bring their faithfully departed spouses into the light of His presence and grant them eternal peace and joy.
Thank you, St. Elizabeth for your prayers and intercession. Amen.
