Saint Teresia Benedicta
Feast Day -- August 6
Edith Stein was born in Germany to a Jewish family. Edith grew up celebrating the Jewish holidays, such as Passover. She became a Catholic in her thirties and entered a convent. She took the religious name Sister Teresia Benedicta of the Cross. During World War II, she moved to the Netherlands. In the Netherlands, the Nazis began persecuting Jews. Because she was of Jewish origin, Teresia was arrested and sent to the death camp at Auschwitz, where she was executed.
Patron of Europe and Jews who become Christians. Saint Teresia had a PhD in philosophy from the University of Gottingen and taught at the university.
Dear Saint Teresia, you loved to learn. Help us to do our best in school. Amen.
