For some reason, just typing the words Catholic social justice yesterday got me thinking about Edith Stein, a victim of WWII whose story is particularly compelling.
So, I found a link to an article about her -- and share it here:
"Stein hardly seemed Catholic-saint material. She, a precocious Jewish child, rejected God as a teen at the turn of the 20th century in Breslau, Germany (now Wroclaw, Poland). But even as a child Edith was, at heart, a radical, one who goes to the radix, the roots. When she became convinced of the truth of an idea, her life fell into place around it."
