This mosaic is on the wall of Toronto's Hungarian R.C. Church in a northern suburb of Toronto, Ontario. It was made in 1974 by a Hungarian-Canadian nun, Mother Antonia Moullion (1907-1989), and it shows the patron saint of the church during the 'Miracle of Roses'. According to legends, while she was secretly taking bread to the poor in her cloak she was asked what is she carrying, and then suddenly the bread turned into roses. St. Elizabeth lived in the early 13th century, she was the daughter of King Andrew II of Hungary, but was married to the ruler of Thuringia (now part of Germany), hence she is also known as St. Elizabeth of Thuringia.
Seeing the nice old mosaics posted by Terez93 promoted me to go out in the cold to take this pictures and to show a mosaic made in our time. I hope the shadow of a tree is not too disturbing,
