This study introduces women to one of the twentieth century saints John Paul II canonized during his pontificate. A young Jewish woman who suffered through the Holocaust, converted to Catholicism and found her vocation by joining the beautiful Carmelite sisters. JPII felt strongly that the world needed the example of holy men and women during these challenging times, and Endow has chosen Edith Stein as one saint in a vast galaxy to highlight. Her story encompasses elements of philosophy (particularly phenomenology, which was a strong interest of John Paul II’s), and theology and offers compelling insights into Jewish life in 1930’s Germany. She was an inspiration to women of her time and continues to be today.
