DG BookGospel: Matthew 11:25-27
On that occasion, Jesus said, “Father, Lord of heaven and earth, I praise you; because you
have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to simple people.
Yes, Father, this was your gracious will.

Everything has been entrusted to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father; and no one
knows the Father except the Son, and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.

Reflection:

One of the several events that led the intellectually gifted Edith Stein to convert to catholic faith was witnessing
a simple, ordinary woman, walking into a church to pray. In Edith’s own words:

“We stopped in at the cathedral for a few minutes; and, while we looked around in respectful silence, a woman
carrying a market basket came in and knelt down in one of the pews to pray briefly. This was something
entirely new to me…. Here was someone interrupting her everyday shopping errands to come into this church,
although no other person was in it, as though she were here for an intimate conversation. I could never forget that.”

Edith never forgot it. That little example given unawared by that simple woman led to Edith’s conversion and gave
us the martyr and saint, Teresa Benedicta of the Cross.
