Sancta Teresia Benedicta a Cruce

On this day in 1922 Edith Stein was baptized.

This is the interior of the Imperial Cathedral of Saint Bartholomew ("The Emperor's Cathedral") in Frankfurt where, as a Jew, the young philosophy professor was so moved by the Catholic devotion of the visit to the Most Blessed Sacrament in Church.

This is how the Cathedral looked a century ago when Saint Edith Stein knew it in all it's Gothic Imperial splendor.
