St TERESA-BENEDICTA-OF-THE-CROSS

Christian Saint

Carmelite Nun and Martyr.

Formerly known as Edith Stein, a lecturer at a German University, she was thrown out when the Nazis came to power due to her Jewish ancestry.

She then settled in Holland where she became a Carmelite nun instead.

But then Holland was invaded and she fell again into the hands of the Nazis. Nothing was sacred to them and so she sadly became an Auschwitz victim.

Quite how she got her impressive-sounding Saintly name — so many worlds away from the somewhat less memorable ‘Edith Stein’ — we are not at liberty to divulge because we don’t know.
