Presenter Information

Judith Metz S.C.


Judith Metz recounts all the principal events of Elizabeth Seton’s life and how she reacted to them. Elizabeth encountered much suffering, and she did not always sense God’s presence. Nonetheless, she trusted in God throughout her life and believed that he would ultimately help her through her pain. She felt that her suffering would bring her closer to him because of all he had already endured for her. Metz explains how this trust developed, often using Elizabeth’s own words. Her most important familial and spiritual relationships are also described.
