Quote of the day, 9 July: St. Edith Stein

During Lent I was allowed a beautiful task: to prepare a Mass and Office for a Feast of Regina Pacis [the Queen of Peace]. Cologne wants to apply for a First Class Feast for the entire Church (July 9). I can send you a carbon copy of the Mass text. I have no more copies of the Office, unfortunately. Perhaps Cologne will be typing it again. Then you could get a carbon copy of it there. That would make me very happy.
