St. Edith Stein, Pray for Us

Today is the feast day of St. Edith Stein, Sr. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, who died at Auschwitz because she was Jewish.

Please, dear St. Edith,  pray for all those experiencing martyrdom today because of hatred for people of faith.

Read her biography here.

"Henceforth, my only vocation is to love."


  1. Something fated about this being Edith Stein's feast day since it was also the day that Barack Obama seems to have announced that he'd like to take over all American manufacturing and do what he did with GM.

    It's called Fascism and it's the kind of institution that killed Edith Stein and her sister.

  2. Sounds like she's the perfect patron for our godless age. We can ask her intercession when we're slaving away in the camps.
