Edith Stein on Femininity

A blog post that gives the source for this image is here.

“Our guiding star is not the liberal idea of humanity and femininity conditioned by time. Rather, our ideal is one which exists prior to all time and which will endure for all time. Woman is created by God to stand by her husband’s side, to stand with him over and above all other creatures; she is bound to him as the helpmate who corresponds to him in an enduring, indissoluble coexistence.”

-Edith Stein, Mission of the Catholic Academic Woman
