St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein) Prayer Card


Prayer to St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross:

Heroic St. Teresa Benedicta,

through the Grace of God,

our Father, you became a martyr

and an example for the world.

I honor your persevering fortitude

and beg your gracious intercession.

Teach me to believe in God’s great love

for me and always keep me close to Him.



Edith Stein was born into a Jewish family.  In her search for the Truth, she became an atheist, phenomenologist, a Catholic and finally a Carmelite nun.  On a visit to a friend’s house, she found the autobiography of St. Teresa of Jesus, which she read in one night.  Upon finishing the book she declared,”This is the Truth!”

During World War II because of her Jewish heritage, she was sent to Auschwitz/Birkenau where she died in 1942.  She was canonized as St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross in 1998 and made co-patroness of Europ in 1999.  Her Feast Day is August 9th.
