We’re learning about one of this podcast’s patronesses in this episode – St. Élisabeth of the Trinity, who described herself as “laudem gloriæ,” the “praise of glory.” Discover why St. Élisabeth is an excellent spiritual model for musicians, and get to know her as a spiritual friend eager to help in all your life’s struggles. Our guest is an expert on St. Élisabeth, Dr. Anthony Lilles, who was just recently appointed as Academic Dean at St. Patrick’s Seminary in Menlo Park, California. Dr. Lilles is a regular guest on the “Discerning Hearts” network, discussing St. Élisabeth and other Carmelites and mystics of the Church.
