Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton: You were the first native-born citizen of the United States to be canonized by the Roman Catholic Church (September 14, 1975) by Venerable Pope Paul VI. You established the first Catholic school in the nation, at Emmitsburg, Maryland, where you founded the first American congregation of Religious Sisters, the Sisters of Charity. On the 18 December 1959 Elizabeth was declared Venerable by the Sacred Congregation of Rites. Dr. J. Emmett Queen was asked by the Archdiocese of Baltimore to investigate a cure of a child, Ann O'Neill, who was suffering from leukemia. He visited Tufts University Hospital and conferred with other physicians there. The cure was attributed to the intervention of Elizabeth Ann Seton. She was beatified by Blessed Pope John XXIII on the 17 March 1963, and canonized by Venerable Pope Paul VI on the 14 September 1975, making her the first native-born United States citizen to be canonized. As a condition for canonization, the Catholic Church requires that for a saint who has not been martyred, at least two miracles take place at his or her intercession.The Holy See recognized that this condition was met when attributing three miracles to Seton's intercession: curing Sister Gertrude Korzendorfer, S.C., of cancer, curing Ann Theresa O'Neill of acute lymphatic leukemia, and curing Carl Kalin of encephalitis. Her feast day is celebrated as a memorial in the dioceses of the United States on the 4th of January. Elizabeth Ann Seton is popularly considered a patron saint of Catholic schools. An image of her in bronze appears on the main doors of St. Patrick's Cathedral, New York, labeled as a "Daughter of New York". The Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, located in the Church of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, was built on the site of her former home in Manhattan pray for us on this day of your saint day! May you rest in peace!remembering you on your 192nd anniversary of your passing, happy feast day also!
