This beautiful statue of Elizabeth Seton was delicately handcrafted in the hills outside of Lucca, Italy. Born in 1774, Elizabeth Bayley grew up in a well-to-do Protestant family and seemed destined for a tranquil life. At age 19 she married William Seton and together they had five children. Tragedy struck when William died of tuberculosis in 1803. Elizabeth learned that her family fortune was lost as well. She converted to Catholicism at a time when Catholics were the object of persecutions in the United States. Her family was shocked by this decision. Elizabeth met Bishop Carroll of Maryland, and he gave her the inspiration to found the American Sisters of Charity and the first American parochial Catholic school. In time her order of sisters flourished, and they established more schools, orphanages and hospitals across the United States. At her early death (46 years old) Mother Seton's congregation numbered twenty-one communities throughout the country This lovely rendition of St. Elizabeth Seton measures 12 inches and is made of resin.

    St. Elizabeth Seton Statue

    I ordered this statue, as St. Elizabeth Seton is my patron saint. The statue came quickly and with expert padding so as to avoid breakage. The detail in the painting of this statue is just beautiful. My "Mother Seton" statue is in a devotional area of the room, and is a great comfort to me as I pray, as I think of her example in her life and how she was a great believer in education and learning; her desire for learning has encouraged me in my prayer life and study of the Faith.
