Saint Edith Stein - FEAST DAY Wednesday 9th August. Carmelite Martyr - film

Feast day - August 9th

In 2015 we filmed for a DVD about Saint Edith Stein. Many people in our parish had never heard of Saint Edith Stein (!) so we organised a filming day for three Catholic Martyrs who were murdered for the Catholic Faith by the Nazis. These were Saint Edith Stein, St. Maximilian Kolbe and Blessed Titus Brandsma. We spent a day filming key moments from their lives for a DVD presenting each of their biographies with the help of parishioners and friends.

Our film about St. Edith Stein runs for half an hour and is packed with biographical and spiritual detail. We journey with Saint Edith Stein through her early life, her studies, writings, her conversion to the Catholic Faith, her entrance into Carmel, her escape from Germany and her beautiful Carmelite spirituality, letters and writings to her arrest, her journey to Auschwitz and her moving death.
We were able to cover some truly inspiring elements of St. Edith's thoughts and writings, prayers and example in the face of evil.

Our film about St. Edith Stein is available on DVD and is a good way to learn about her, to share her story with others, and to celebrate her feast day this year.
