St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, Edith Stein


"....Woman's soul is....fashioned to be a shelter in which other souls may unfold. Both spiritual companionship and spiritual motherliness are not limited to the physical spouse and mother relationships, but they extend to all people with whom woman comes into contact."

"Woman naturally seeks to embrace that which is living, personal and whole. To cherish, guard, protect, nourish and advance growth is her natural, maternal yearning."

Saint Edith Stein

Thank you Esther.
Edith Stein had so much to say about authentic womanhood. I should attempt to post more about her writings in the future. I have drawn from the book: Grace-Filled Moments (Benkovic) the essence of Edith Stein.

May she pray for us!
Blessings,
Denise
