Retreat with Edith Stein: Trusting God's Purposeby Patricia L. Marks
In this seven-day retreat, Trusting God's Purpose, your director is Edith Stein, a woman of deep intellect and an intense commitment to the truth. Born into a Jewish family, Edith's search for truth led her first to agnosticism and eventually to Catholicism and life as a Carmelite nun. Both her heritage and her faith made her an enemy of the Third Reich and a victim of the Holocaust.
On this journey with Edith, you will confront the central issues of life: understanding the will of God, living in right relationship with others and finding fulfillment in self-donation. Her experience and witness can lead us to a profound and renewed respect for the human and religious rights of all. Edith's philosophy is simple: Ultimately we all live at the hand of God, the wise among us will accept and cherish this fact and trust in God's purpose.
