"The world needs...what we are." - Edith Stein
Although Anne Costa never knew Edith Stein personally, Stein's writings had a profound effect on her, and she came to view Edith as a personal friend - one who serves as a wise guide for a woman's unique role in the world today. St. Edith Stein can help us learn how to know ourselves, be more openhearted, experience freedom through surrender, and embrace the vocation of love common to all women.
"Throughout this book, we can see Edith's foundational influence on John Paul II. Both were brilliant scholars, deep thinkers, and contemporaries who shared a love for phenomenology (a modern experience of it). Nevertheless, this book is not a scholarly reiteration of Edith's life; instead, it is a revealing and personal story about Anne Costa's love and admiration for a saint who profoundly touched her life. As the story of their friendship unfolds, readers will gain a deeper grasp and understanding of their own inherent dignity in light of what John Paul II called the 'feminine genius.'" From the Foreward by Christopher West
"A beautiful window into the wisdom of Edith Stein! I heartily recommend this book to all real seekers, and to all who wish to find the key to deeper enjoyment of true womanhood." Dominic M. Pedulla, M.D., executive director of the Edith Stein foundation
