Today we celebrate St. Edith Stein. She was a brilliant woman who died this day in 1942 at Auschwitz. Born Jewish, she became a great philosopher and author. Her journey led her to the Catholic Church, and her great hunger for Christ led her to become a Carmelite nun. Below is one of her quotes that I believe we can all take comfort in on our journey.
“Nothing is more practical than finding God, than falling in Love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you do with your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read, whom you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in Love, stay in love, and it will decide everything.”~Fr. Pedro Arrupe, SJ
This quote attributed to Fr. Pedro Arrupe has been one of my favorites for a long time. Fall in love with Jesus, and it will change every aspect of your life! Have you fallen in love with Him yet? He patiently awaits you.
