In this episode:

“Blessed are They”: St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein)


Dawn Eden

“Among Women” Guest: Dawn Eden

In this episode we examine the virtue of chastity with author of The Thrill of the Chaste, Dawn Eden. There is something in conversation for women in every vocation. Chastity needs cultivating in every state of life. Also in this show, in honor of Our Lady of the Rosary this month, a look at Edith Stein’s writings on the relationship between Mary and us.

Note to Parents: some of this subject matter may be a bit mature for children.
