Quotes from the video, translated into English:
“The darker it gets around us,
the more we have to open our hearts to the light from above.” (Edith Stein’)
"And when night comes and looking back shows that everything was piecemeal and that so much has remained undone, when so much arouses deep shame and remorse ...”
“... then take everything as it is, put it in God's hands and leave it to Him. So one will be able to rest in Him, really rest, and start the new day like a new life." (Edith Stein)
“We want to start a new life every day.” Edith Stein.
Interpretation: Leave your mistakes behind and start over.
Interpretation: Open a new page, go back to the beginning and take a new path.
Star of David - her background as a Jew; Cross - her strong faith in Jesus; Blood - her death in Auschwitz and the suffering of people around the world.

“Who are you, sweet light that fills me and illuminates the darkness of my heart? You guide me like a mother's hand, and if you let go of me, I wouldn't know how to take a step. You are the space that surrounds my being and hides it, released from you it would sink into the abyss of nothingness from which you raised it to being. You, closer to me than me to myself and more inwardly than my inner being - and yet intangible and incomprehensible and bursting every name ... " (Edith Stein)
