Quotable Monday

“On the question of relating to our fellowman - our neighbor's spiritual need transcends every commandment. Everything else we do is a means to an end. But love is an end already, since God is love.”

-Edith Stein (Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross) 1891-1942, Scholar, teacher, Jewish convert, Carmelite nun, victim of the Holocaust

Really enjoyed your blog posts. Google notifies me anytime someone mentions Edith Stein online, because I have a newsletter for Catholic women under her patronage: Secretum Meum Mihi, which was Edith's response to questions about her conversion. (Latin for "My Secret is Mine") I hope you might like our free e-letter!
