Essays by St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein)

Essays by St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein): Brethren: Peace be with you. I found these while surfing about and thought that you may benefit from them.
  • Feminine vocations - The woman who "suits" man as helpmate does not only participate in his work; she complements him, counteracting the dangers of his specifically masculine nature.
  • On the history and spirit of Carmel - To stand before the face of the living God, that is our vocation.
  • Love of the cross - Voluntary expiatory suffering is what truly and really unites one to the Lord intimately.
  • Woman’s formation - The primary and most essential Educator is not the human being but God Himself.
  • Woman’s soul - The world of the spirit is founded on sensuousness which is spiritual as much as physical: the intellect, knowing its activity to be rational, reveals a world; the will intervenes creatively and formatively in this world; the emotion receives this world inwardly and puts it to the test.
