Edith Stein on the Deepest Longing of a Woman’s Heart

In case you’re having trouble reading this (I did the first time I saw it): “A woman’s heart should be so lost in God that a man must seek Him in order to find her.”

“The deepest longing of a woman’s heart is to give herself lovingly, to belong to another, and to possess this other being completely…But this surrender becomes a perverted self-abandon and a form of slavery when it is given to another person and not to God; at the same time, it is an unjustified demand which no human being can fulfill. Only God can welcome a person’s total surrender in such a way that one does not lose one’s soul in the process but wins it.”

-Edith Stein, The Ethos of Women’s Professions
