"In aridity and emptiness the soul becomes humble. Former pride disappears when a man no longer finds in himself anything that might cause him to look down on others." - Science of the Cross
I have had a quiet devotion to Edith Stein for many years - because she is a Jew. Since her beatification and canonization her cult became a favorite of intellectuals, academics, professional women, and of course Carmelites. Thus I rarely write about her now days, except for an occasional quote.
This may be a good time to mention I'm jumping off the Theology of the Body bandwagon as well. I don't know what I was thinking to have posted about the issue in the first place.
