Edith Stein on Selflessness of Women

MOMS

I think Edith Stein would agree that no woman should feel ashamed of working outside the home or staying at home. Either way, mothers have an essential role to play. Both of these animated women should hold their heads high. Image source.

“In order to develop to the highest level the humanity specific to husband and children, woman requires the attitude of selfless service. She cannot consider others as her property not as means for her own purposes; on the contrary, she must consider others as gifts entrusted to her, and she can only do so when she also sees them as God’s creatures towards whom she has a holy duty to fulfill. Surely, the development of their God-given nature is a holy task.”

-Edith Stein, Spirituality of the Christian Woman
