Servant of God Elisabeth Leseur married a non-practicing Catholic (Felix Leseur) who became increasingly hostile to her Catholicism. Diagnosed with breast cancer in 1912 she told her husband:
I am absolutely certain that when you return to God, you will not stop on the way because you never do things by halves…You will someday become a priest.
To this he responded: “Elizabeth, you know my sentiments. I’ve sworn hatred of God, I shall live in that hatred and I shall die in it.” After she died in 1914, her husband discovered a note written to him among her papers:
In 1905, I asked Almighty God to send me sufficient sufferings to purchase your soul. On the day that I die, the price will have been paid. Greater love than this no woman has than she who lay down her life for her husband.
In 1923, at the age of 62, Felix Leseur was ordained a priest.
