Reflection for August, 2019

  Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross

Edith Stein 1891-1942 Feast Day August 9

   Born the youngest of 11 children of a devout Jewish mother in Wroclaw,
Poland, Edith was an atheist by her teens. After studying philosophy in
Germany, she was deeply affected by reading the autobiography of St. Teresa
of Avila. Baptized a Catholic in 1922, she joined the Discalced Carmelites
in Cologne in 1933, taking the name Teresa Benedicta of the Cross. Fleeing
the Nazis, she moved to a convent in Echt, Nethrelands, but was arrested
with non-Aryan Christians after the Dutch bishops protested Nazi
deportations. She was martyred at Auschwitz.

Lecturer John Hersey

Respect Life Prayer

Dear God,
   We see life cheapened every day through abortion and other forms of abuse, through terrorism, and other acts of violence, and through neglect of children, the poor, and the elderly.
   In a world of plenty, we can forget that there is nothing more precious than human life.
   Give us the grace to see how we can make a difference, and encourage change in our culture.
Inspire us with the stories of Mary and other mothers of unexpected pregnancies, who knew that every child is a gift of God's grace and is wanted by you in this world.
   Encourage conviction in the hearts of those who do not yet know or understand that a desire for choice is no reason to end any life and that you desire that all life come only to a natural end in you.
                    Amen.
