Saint Edith Stein's Day!

Yeah, yeah. I know she is officially Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, but I think of her as Saint Edith Stein. It's like how she was both Catholic and Jewish at the same time, like the apostles.

Anyway, I just found out now because the calendar in the hall is a traddy one, which means the only one St Edith would have known.

Happy Feast of Saint Edith Stein/TB of the C! If you don't know much about her, google her immediately, for she is marvellous. I wonder if I should stop asking St. Margaret of York to send me a baby and ask St. Edith instead.

Ask them both! They are both canonized, so if it would be an official miracle, neither of them "need" it.

As the co-founder of the Edith Stein Project at Notre Dame, I echo your comments!
