~  ON BEING JEWISH  ~
 A DAUGHTER 
OF THE CHOSEN PEOPLE
 You don't know what it means to me to be a daughter of the chosen people, to belong to Christ, not only spiritually, but according to the flesh." 

AUSCHWITZ

    To her sister Rosa as they were arrested:  "Come, we are going for our people". Edith Stein
+
By 1938 she and her sister Rosa were sent to the Carmelite Monastery in Echt, Netherlands for their safety. Despite the Nazi invasion of that state in 1940, they remained undisturbed until they were arrested by the Nazis on 2 August 1942 and sent to the Auschwitz concentration camp, where they died in the gas chamber on 9 August 1942.
+
LOVE AND SUFFERING
  Love is stronger than hatred. In the end there will be only the fullness of love... If we accept the whole Christ in faithful self-giving, by choosing and walking in the way of the imitation of Christ, then he will lead us through his Passion and Cross to the glory of the Resurrection.

CANONIZED IN 1998
One of six patron saints of Europe, she was canonized 
by Pope Saint John Paul II in 1998.
  “In the heart of Jesus, which was pierced, the kingdom of heaven and the land of earth are bound together. Here is for us the source of life. This heart is the heart of the Triune Divinity, and the center of all human hearts… It draws us to itself with secret power, it conceals us in itself in the Father’s bosom and floods us with the Holy Spirit. This heart, it beats for us in a small tabernacle where it remains mysteriously hidden in that still, white host.”
