Quote of the day, 30 June: St. Edith Stein

The way to perfection of individual nature is loving devotion and surrender to God who is love. This surrender also represents the highest fulfillment of all feminine aspirations concerning their vocation. Correctly speaking, it is the highest fulfillment of our human vocation; but this is felt more vividly and sought more directly by the woman because it is in accordance with her specific nature.
