St. Elizabeth
Elizabeth and her husband, Zechariah, "were righteous in the eyes of God," the Bible tells us, "but they had no child, because Elizabeth was barren and both were advanced in years" (Lk 1:6-7). When an angel told Zechariah his wife would conceive, he didn't believe it! But their son became the great saint and last of the prophets, John the Baptist.
