St. Edith Stein Novena 2022: Day Eight

Upon the death of a lay sister in the Carmel of Cologne, St. Edith Stein wrote to a friend that she was not worried about her "Master" Edmund Husserl, who was seriously ill and, in fact, would die one month later.

St. Edith Stein Novena 2022: Day Two

Today St. Edith Stein teaches us that compassionate love and mercy flow "from the divine heart." The prophet Isaiah reminds us that "the Lord waits to be gracious;" and "all those who wait for him" are blessed.

Commenting on the Gospel story of Jesus and the woman caught in adultery, Fr.

Quote of the day, 17 March: Jessica Powers

St. Joseph Novena 2022, Day 7: St. Joseph Speaks

St. Thérèse of Lisieux wrote a small play about the flight into Egypt and St. Joseph has a speech in the play about God's goodness and mercy.
