Not much information is known about Elizabeth, but she has the distinction of being one of the first to know about Mary's great blessing as the Mother of God.
Zachary was a priest in Jerusalem whose wife, Elizabeth, Mary's cousin, was beyond child-bearing age. He was told by an angel in a vision that they would have a son and should name him John. When he doubted this, he was struck dumb. Elizabeth was visited by Mary, at which time Mary spoke the hymn of praise now known at the Magnificat, and after John's birth, Zachary's speech was restored. This is all that is known of Elizabeth and Zachary, and is found in the New Testament in Luke, Chapter 1. An unvarifiable tradition has Zachary murdered in the Temple when he refused to tell Herod where his son John was to be found. Their feast day is November 5th.
Other saints with the same Feast day: * St. Sylvia * St. Bertilia * St. Dominator * St. Domninus * St. Domninus * St. Fibitius * St. Galation * St. Felix and Eusebius * St. Laetus * St. Magnus
John: Any questions glad2btex, please don't hesitate to ask.. I remember my first time on a forum it took a while to understand how everything worked. Most titles are links that bring you to that topic.

John: To send a private message, click on the persons name anywhere you see their name and then click on the last of the three grey boxes, the one that says 'send message' .. Is that how you did it?

John: I'm unable to see private communication between two people so I'm not able to tell if you sent it through. But hopefully what I wrote helps. Flo usually comes online around 8am her time give or take which is about 4 1/2 hours from right now.
