And when night comes, and you look back over the day and see how fragmentary everything has been, and how much you planned that has gone undone, and all the reasons you have to be embarrassed and ashamed: just take everything exactly as it is, put it in God’s hands and leave it with Him.
— Edith Stein was a German-Jewish philosopher who converted to Catholicism and became a Discalced Carmelite nun, taking the name Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, OCD. She was taken from the Echt Carmel on August 2, 1942, and transported by cattle train to the death camp of Auschwitz, the conditions in the box cars being so inhuman that many died or went insane on the four day trip. She died in the gas chambers at Auschwitz on August 9, 1942. She was canonized as a Saint on October 11, 1998, by Pope John Paul II and the Feast of St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross is celebrated on August 9.
