Edith Stein and Mary as Our Role Model

One of my favorite paintings of Mary: Mother of Life by Nellie Edwards

“As Mother of God and mother of all God’s children, she is exalted above all creatures on the throne of glory; maternity itself is glorified through her.”

“Every woman who wants to fulfill her destiny must look to Mary as ideal.”

-Edith Stein, Spirituality of the Christian Woman (emphasis is mine)
