EDITH STEIN: Her Journey from Darkness into Light

Thursday, November 12-Sunday, November 15, 2020

 

Join us as we reflect on the life and times of Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, a brilliant philosopher and poet, a mystic and searcher of the truth, and a Jew -- a daughter of Israel.  Her encounter with the cross in the life of a Christian friend sparked an inner transformation that led to her baptism into the Catholic faith.  Her reading of the life of Teresa of Avila brought her to the door of the Cologne Carmel where she began her contemplative journey as a Carmelite nun.  Her Jewish identity and her Catholic faith collided with the opporessive Nazi regime and led to her martyrdom at Aushchwitz.  

 

Fr. Joseph Brennan has been a monk of Valyermo since 1994 after having served as a parish priest in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles for over 20 years.  He is a spiritiaul director at the Cardinal Manning House of Prayer for priest in Los Angeles as well as St. Andrew's Prior.  

 

Cheryl Evanson is an oblate of Valyermo and former administrator of the Retreat Center at St. Andrew's.  She earned an MA in Education from the University of Denver and was an educator/curriculum specialist for over 30 years.  She has facilitated retreats and workshops on team-building, balancing work and prayer, women in scripture, and Edith Stein.  

 

Michaela Russell is an oblate of Valyermo.  She has a BA in International Studies/East Asia and a Graduate Certificate iun Advanced International Affairs.  Michaela spent many years in Asia and is fluent in Mandarin. She has co-facilitated retreats on the desert mothers, women in scripture, and Edith Stein.
