Prayer of the day a prayer to Saint Edith Stein

Prayer to Saint Edith Stein


Saint Edith, you’re an example to those of us who are students. From the day you asked for “school” as a birthday present to the day you graduated from the university, you were always eager and happy to learn. Help me to appreciate school. Encourage me to never give up when my studies seem difficult. Teach me to enjoy the many wonderful things I learn. They’re all gifts from God!

You also show me the importance of being a good friend, Saint Edith. You were always ready to help anyone who was struggling. Help me to be kind and generous with everyone I meet.

But the most important thing I can learn from you is how to love the cross of Jesus. You teach me that the cross is really a sign of God’s special love for me. When I have a problem, or something to suffer, remind me that God has a plan for my life and that my suffering has value. I want to follow Jesus as you did—no matter what. Pray for me, Saint Edith.

Amen.


This prayer is taken from the Encounter The Saint Series book on Edith. The above Icon I have had for many years. I have had it on my desk at work or at home for a long time.
