St. Isabel of France

  • by

Bl. Isabel was the sister of St. Louis and the daughter of King Louis VIII of France and Blanche of Castile. In her youth, Isabel, or Elizabeth, showed an extraordinary devotion to exercises of piety, modesty, and other virtues. She refused offers of marriage from several noble suitors in order to continue a life of virginity consecrated to God.
