“To belong wholly to God, to give oneself to Him, to His service, for love, this is the vocation, not only of all the elect but of every Christian; whether consecrated or not consecrated, man or woman.  Everyone is called to follow Christ, and the more each one advances along the way, the more like Christ each one becomes.  And since Christ personifies the ideal of human perfection free from every defect and one-sidedness, rich with characteristic traits be they masculine or feminine, free from every earthly limitation, His faithful followers rise ever higher above the confines of nature.”  (Woman)
St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross
(Edith Stein)
