Book Club Discussion

Dec 16 2021 7:00pm ·

The next meeting of the Cathedral Book Club will be Thursday evening, December 16, from 7 to 8 pm in the West Conference Room. Masks will be required as we return to in-person discussion. 

The subject is "Edith Stein: Essential Writings," with writings selected and introduced by the Carmelite Father John Sullivan. This is a well-organized overview of excerpts from the writings of the Jewish convert, philosopher, academic, Carmelite nun (Sr. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross), and Auschwitz martyr which, Father Sullivan notes, "can only begin to convey the depth and significance of her life and its meaning today."

This 158-page overview presents a meaningful and very readable reflection for us as we prepare for Christmas.
