This is just a short post (because I only have a short time before the day is through) to let you know that over at Catholic Exchange I have an article on Edith Stein in honor of her feast. She helped me through a rough time some years ago, and it's a joy to finally have the opportunity to thank her in print - virtual print, at least!
If you go HERE to 7 Secrets of Edith Stein, you'll find not only the 7 secrets she shared with me when we first met, but also a brief biography of her, and then some fabulous links. The links appear in red in the article and they are so much fun! If you've been running out of things to do on the internet, those red words and the articles, books, homilies, and info they link you to will keep you busy and out of trouble for quite some time.
I know, I know, you are a little Miss (or Mr.) Marcel, and so you're thinking, "But I just want more Marcel!" Yes, but even Marcel was pressed by Jesus and Therese to make more friends than just the two of them! So be brave, live dangerously, and don't worry about all those links in red. (Don't worry about anything, any more, ever, but especially not about those red links) Just click over to the article at CE and enjoy Edith's compassionate love for you - yes, you! She's the quintessential woman, a spiritual mother happy to do what she can to provide for any needs you confide to her (and even some you don't dare mention). I'll add another magic portal to the bottom of this post through which you can to her. No excuses that you had to read the whole post here and then forgot to go over to the article there!
Before you take advantage of its virtual Beam me up Scottie magic, however, feel free to grab a treat - it's a feast! You wouldn't want to arrive at her party empty handed, now, would you? Or empty hearted, for that matter, so along with your treat, let's bring our prayer:
Draw me, we will run!
And now you're ready. Here again then is 7 Secrets of Edith Stein, and when you see suddenly find yourself chatting it up with Edith (she'll make you comfortable and you'll be fast friends), don't forget to tell her I said "Hi!"
I've written books and articles and even a novel. Now it's time to try a blog! For more about me personally, go to the home page and you'll get the whole scoop! If you want to send me an email, feel free to click "Contact Me" below. To receive new posts, enter your email and click "Subscribe" below.
