Quote of the day, 20 February: St. Edith Stein

He is the King of kings, the Lord of life and death. He speaks His “Follow me”, and if a man is not for Him, he is against Him. He speaks also to us and asks us to choose between light and darkness.

We know not, and we should not ask before the time, where our earthly way will lead us. We know only this, that to those that love the Lord all things will work together to the good, and further,  that the ways by which the Savior leads us point beyond this earth.
