St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross

In keeping with what has proven to be in many ways and for many reasons a long, sad week, it bears noting that today is the anniversary of the death of St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (i.e., Edith Stein). Rather than write anything, which I am not really up for, I refer you Sr. Edith's post over on Monastic Musings entitled Edith Stein, 1891 - 9 August 1942.

I also want to draw attention to a quote from Balthasar over on Deep Furrows, which begins, "When God demands of us something difficult, we often seek to be aided in our compliance by motives that rob the action of its whole value." To read whole thing, follow the link.

St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross- pray for us!
