The heart of Christ and the mystery of the cross are central in the lives of these two very different women mystics. Catherine was a Third Order Dominican and a Doctor of the Church. She spent her short life mainly in Siena during the tumultuous 14th century and died in Rome.
Edith was a Jewish philosopher who became a Carmelite nun. She lived in 20th century, war-torn Germany and died in Auschwitz. During this season of the heart, join us to explore the similarities of these women’s passionate love of God and their understanding of the heart of Christ.
Presenter: Ellen Murray, RSM

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
