New Liturgical Movement: Relics of the First American Saint

Since we just passed the 4th of July, here are pictures of some relics of the very first person born within the United States to be canonized, Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton. These were taken at an exhibit of Seton family treasures in her shrine in Emmitsburg, Maryland, by Matthew Swaim, who was invited to the opening in his capacity as host of the Son Rise Morning Show on EWTN Radio, and as Outreach Manager for the Coming Home Network, Mother Seton was a convert from Episcopalianism. Our thanks to Mr Swaim for sharing them with us. Bonnet and shawl belonging to St Elizabeth herself, a form of dress adopted by the early Sisters of Charity from traditional Italian widows’ attire.
