I am reading "The Science of the Cross" by St Edith Stein.


Oh, I have heard of Edith Stein. Isn't she a Jewish convert? I would love to hear a little about this book. :)


It is her commentary on the writings of St John of the Cross. under obedience she compiled it while she was in Holland. She was just putting the finishing touches on it when the Nazi police came to the door of the convent to arrest her and her sister. 


That sounds so interesting!

She was a canonized saint;

In Echt, Edith Stein hurriedly completed her study of "The Church's Teacher of Mysticism and the Father of the Carmelites, John of the Cross, on the Occasion of the 400th Anniversary of His Birth, 1542-1942." In 1941 she wrote to a friend, who was also a member of her order: "One can only gain a scientia crucis (knowledge of the cross) if one has thoroughly experienced the cross. I have been convinced of this from the first moment onwards and have said with all my heart: 'Ave, Crux, Spes unica' (I welcome you, Cross, our only hope)." Her study on St. John of the Cross is entitled: "Kreuzeswissenschaft" (The Science of the Cross).

Edith Stein was arrested by the Gestapo on 2 August 1942, while she was in the chapel with the other sisters. She was to report within five minutes, together with her sister Rosa, who had also converted and was serving at the Echt Convent. Her last words to be heard in Echt were addressed to Rosa: "Come, we are going for our people."

Question: As anyone here, read "The Mass", by Adrian Fortesue ? My husband has a "tablet" and is looking at books to read for 99 cents.
