Elizabeth and her friends served each other in a variety of capacities: as role models and mentors, as substitute mothers, sisters, and as loving peers. For Elizabeth, who did not have the benefit of a mother’s tender love, her close friends created a network of people who offered her physical, psychological, and spiritual support. Each of her friendships was unique and held a special place in her life. […] They shared that which was most precious with openness and freedom, and for each other they were truly a mirror of God’s love.

  1. Judy,
    What a great summary of the friendships of Elizabeth Ann Seton! I really appreciated reading about them in one place. It gave me somewhat of an inner look into Elizabeth’s spiritual, heart warming and most supportive relationships that helped her throughout her whole life. Thank you!
