Description

Born into a royal family and brought into a foreign land, to discover love, raise a family and become the mother of the sick and poor of her country, Elizabeth of Hungary became a follower of St. Francis and mobilized people throughout Europe to lead the Gospel life. She still continues to inspire us today.

The video documentary A Woman for Our Time tells the story of Elizabeth’s life through the art works, historical recreations and narration, interwoven with a chronicle of the events of the eighth centenary of her birth in 2006-2008. Her Franciscan followers tell how they became acquainted with her, what she means to them and how the celebration of her centenary has led them on a journey of rediscovery of her.

This young medieval woman’s social conscience, and the way she loved God in action make her truly a woman for our time.

106 min. Color.  DVD. 2011

Ce film – tourné à Rome, Assise, Esztergom et Budapest – entrelace l’histoire portant sur la vie de Sainte Élisabeth avec les commentaires provenant d’historiens en rapport avec elle et son époque. Il fait également une chronique des événements du huitième centenaire de sa naissance en 2006-2008 – incluant : des conférences; des célébrations liturgiques; ainsi que, des entrevues avec des membres du Troisième Ordre Séculier et l’Ordre Régulier racontant comment ils ont fait la connaissance de Sainte Élisabeth, ce qu’elle représente pour eux et comment la célébration de son centenaire les a mené sur le trajet de sa redécouverte. La vie de Sainte Élisabeth en tant que femme laïque, épouse et mère, sa conscience sociale et la façon dont elle aimait Dieu par ses actions, ont fait de elle réellement une femme pour notre époque.
