Edith Stein - August 9

Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross
The Making of a Saint

God can make a Saint from any one of us,
but before this can happen,
we have to desire to cooperate with Him.

Lord, God of our fathers,
you brought Saint Teresa Benedicta
to the fullness of the science of the cross
at the hour of her martyrdom.
Fill us with that same knowledge;
and, through her intercession,
allow us always to seek after you,
 the supreme truth,
and to remain faithful until death
 to the covenant of love
ratified in the blood of your Son
for the salvation of all men and women.
We ask this through Christ, our Lord.
