St. Jutta's Feast Day

St. Jutta was a contemporary of St. Elizabeth of Hungary. She said there were three things that can bring one close to God "painful sickness, exile from home in some remote corner of a foreign country, and poverty voluntarily accepted for God." (Lives of the Saints, pg 178)

More food for thought that my Carmelite vow of poverty seems to be the easiest route of St. Jutta's three options!
