A Smiling Edith Stein (Benedicta of the Cross)

A blessed feast to our beloved Magdalen; it is too fitting that her feast falls on the octave of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Except the prophet Elijah, which is a First-Class feast for Carmelites on July 20th, Mass of Our Lady of Mount Carmel is celebrated every day during Her octave- ends tomorrow. I just love when the saints smile at us (especially the Carmelites)!
