I am a 34 year old Catholic woman in Madison, Wisconsin, a member of the Cathedral Parish. In the past I was involved quite a bit at St Paul’s University Catholic Center. I am a privately vowed celibate for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. I love Carmelite spirituality, especially Saint John of the Cross.

I am a “revert” Catholic, meaning that I fell away from my faith for years and then by the grace of God I was reconciled with the Church again and began to really learn and live my Catholic Faith. You can read the rather entertaining story of my coming back to the Church in a post titled: Falling off my horse: the conversion of Elizabeth D from Daily Kos progressive to devout Catholic. God is merciful.

  1. Elizabeth,

    I have enjoyed your comments on Fr. Z’s blog. I particularly liked what you said today on the citizenship issue. You may find my latest article on my own blog to be of interest.

    God bless,

    William Meyer

  2. I just discovered your blog via a comment you left at Fr. Z’s site.

    You have a lovely blog site and I’ll be returning.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


  3. Thank you, Elizabeth, for this beautiful blog–which I’m now visiting from Father Z’s and not for the first time, and for your informative comments bringing me up to date on Catholic happenings in Madison, where I was resident during Vatican II, a thankfully now receding era in the Church.

  4. Still waiting to hear from you, I wanted to share what the diocese had to say when I wrote them.

    • Christina, I sent you an email–sorry for not getting back to you sooner.

  5. I found a wonderful, happy photo on your webpage laetificatmadison.com- the picture of 2 little girls dressed as St Teresa and St. Therese. I would like your permission to copy limited number of pictures (50) to distribute to the members of my secular Discalced Carmelite Community here in San Antonio TX. No further pictures outside our community. This picture goes right to the heart of the Carmelite spirit– simplicity, wonder, and joy. Carmelites are celebrating the 500 anniversary of St Teresa of Avila- our Holy Mother. I want to share this with my friends. Thank you so much. God bless you for sharing our Catholic Church to the world. Mary Giles OCDS
