Originally a group known as The Zelie Group, this blogging cohort is a collaborative effort between several Catholic women bloggers. We are united by the philosophy that women are unique, individual, and powerful beings. Our goal is simply to celebrate womanhood – and, every woman’s vocation, from single hood, to parenthood, to religious life. Each woman is called to be a mother – either in the literal, physical sense, or in the spiritual sense. Our writers want to embrace that notion.
As we began to solidify our commitment to all women, we realized we needed a name and a patron which would help form our focus. Everyday Ediths became a nod to Edith Stein, originally a Jewish woman, who converted to Catholicism. Upon her vows as a Carmelite Sister, Edith took the name Teresa Benedicta of the Cross. After being murdered in Auschwitz Nazi Concentration Camp, she has since been canonized as St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross.
One guiding principle of hers was,
The world doesn’t need what women have, it needs what women are.
Our blogging group can be found at Everyday Ediths. We write on a set topic each month, and also run giveaways. We hope to also include linkups in the near future.
I sincerely hope you will head over to the blog page, or follow us on Facebook, IG, or Twitter. We aim to inspire all women, with our focus on our Catholic Christian identities.
