Saint Judith of Prussia

St Judith was born at Sangerhausen in Thuringia, which is now central Germany. Her family was rich, but she wanted to follow the example of Saint Elizabeth of Hungary. When she was just fifteen, Judith was married to a wealthy young noblewoman. She was a good Christian wife and was very generous with the poor. Judith's husband died suddenly while he was on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. She prayed for non-beleivers and newly baptized christians. Runtime : 2:46 mins
