Saint Elizabeth of Hungary (also called Elisabeth of Thuringia) one day descended from Wartburg Castle down to the village of Eisenach carrying meat, eggs and bread under her mantle. Items she took from the family dining table to distribute to the poor in the village against the wishes of her family. Halfway she met her husband, who wished to see what she was carrying. He opened her mantle and to his surprise finds her carrying a bouquet of roses.
