Father Dominique Peridans
Trinity Whom I Adore Elizabeth Catez was born in France in 1880, and grew up in Dijon. She entered the Carmelite monastery in Dijon in 1901. Her fascination with the Trinity led her to take the name Sister Elizabeth of the Trinity. She died in 1906 in her convent-at the age of 26-from Addison's disease. She composed a beautiful prayer to the Most Holy Trinity, a prayer full of humility and hope and awe and, above all, love. I share it with you for "Trinity Sunday".
