Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Beacon
Thanks to a new book on St. Edith Stein, who was killed by the Nazis 59 years ago, readers can take a retreat that teaches important virtues for those troubled times - including courage, trusting God and respecting others.
Henry Mayer
Patricia Marks has done a remarkable job in reviewing and choosing from the Stein literature besides offering thoughtful questions after each topic. This reviewer was particularly impressed with the presentation on the Eucharist that he would describe as creme de la creme.
Pastoral Life
Living Light News
Marks weaves together the insights and writings of Stein and of those who knew her to create a portrait that gives witness to a life of trusting in God's purpose.
Praire Messenger
A retreat with Edith Stein will be compelling and challenging and not a little disturbing. A convert from Judaism after reading St. Teresa of Avila's Life, Stein later became a Carmelite sister, died in the gas chamber of Auschwitz August 9, 1942, and was canonized October 11, 1998. From this, the closing prayer sums up Stein's belief that it is the life of a Christian "to suffer and to be happy although suffering." A disturbing story, yes, but grounded in love.
The Catholic Observer
Marks makes use of the Carmelite's writings as material for the retreat conferences.
Theology Digest
For this retreat the 'mentor' is Edith Stein. She offers thoughts on 'the central issues of life: understanding the will of God, living in right relationship with others, and finding fulfillment in self donation.
