|Icon of Our Holy Venerable Mother Crowned by God Elizabeth the Peacemaker, Apostle of the Holy Ghost.|
She would invite the poor into the palace too feed them and would let some of the children wear her crown, using this as an opportunity to promote devotion to the Divine Holy Ghost, the work for which she is still best remembered. The feasts of the Holy Ghost, with distribution of sweet bread and the crowning of children, still takes place today, mostly in the Azores and the Azorean diaspora. The main symbols of the devotion are the Holy Ghost flag and crown. Upon the death of her husband, she made peace between her sons, who were fighting for the throne, and retired to a monastery in Coimbra, where she is buried.
