Pope Points to Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, her Courageous Choices

Saint’s Feast Day is August 9

Pope Francis on August 7, 2019, pointed to Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein) as a courageous example for the faithful to follow.  His comments came during the resumption of his regular Wednesday General Audience.

“The day after tomorrow we will celebrate the feast of Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein), Virgin and Martyr, Co-patroness of Europe,” the Holy Father said. “I invite everyone to look at her courageous choices, expressed in an authentic conversion to Christ, as well as in the gift of his life against all forms of intolerance and ideological perversion.”
