Printed literature is replete with details on the life of the Servant of God, but this site also wants to give unpublished sources a chance to share their stories about the life of Empress Zita, her spirituality, her life of prayer, and her devotions. Some of these stories come from the testimony of those within her inner circle: family, friends, people in her service, and those who met her under various circumstances. The names of these sources are not given out of respect for their privacy.
