St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross

"God of our Fathers, who brought the Martyr Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross to know your crucified Son and to imitate him even until death, grant, through her intercession, that the whole human race may acknowledge Christ as its Saviour and through him come to behold you for eternity. Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever." Amen. – Collect for the feast of St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (9 Aug). This icon of the Saint, known in the world as the philosopher Edith Stein, who became a Carmelite nun martyred at Auschwitz, is in the Dominican church of St Vincent Ferrer in New York City.
