Edith Stein: Finding the Cross in Everyday Life

John Sullivan O.C.D.

St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein) led a life with sometimes more than normal difficulties and disappointments. In spite of all of her intellectual acumen, taxing studies at university sent her into a depressed state.  Personal losses and discrimination followed her throughout her life.


Edith Stein: Contemplative Scholar

Constance Fitzgerald O.C.D.

St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, Edith Stein, was a scholar and contemplative. The life of Edith Stein opens a window for us into this unusual marriage of disciplines. This presentation gives us a look through that window, not just for academic or historical purposes, but to discover whether it is a truth that contemplation and scholarship together can uniquely illicit and so to evaluate the importance of contemplative scholars to human thought and development.


Edith Stein and Renewal

John Sullivan O.C.D.

“The new spirit already exists and will prevail.” Those words were coined by a young Ph.D., named Edith Stein during World War I to assure her sister it is worth hoping and worth working through current crises toward a better, a renewed future. We learn how Edith Stein, also St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, Carmelite Nun and co-patroness of Europe went resolutely ahead to find ways of renewal in the spirit-dominated realm that she could see at work as it unfolded.


St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross:
Carmelite Authors 101 Series

John Sullivan O.C.D.

A Saint, a martyr, a leader of the women’s movement in the Catholic Church – Edith Stein was also a jewess, and a respected philosopher; but most of all she was a Carmelite. She lived in a different time under very unusual circumstances, but we can all learn from her.


Her Mother’s Daughter: Edith Stein

Fran Horner, O.C.D.

Sr. Fran Horner discusses if Edith Stein was indeed a ‘daughter’ of Holy Mother Teresa of Jesus, in spite their many differences. Edith Stein’s views on truth and her desire to find the truth in its own right led her to enter Carmel and find closeness to God. In this way, she exemplifies Carmelite spirituality for the search of the living God. This search makes her a daughter of Saint Teresa of Jesus, who also made this same journey in her life.
