"The Key to Holiness"

In the foyer to the Church of the Assumption there were copies of a quotation of St Edith Stein, printed especially for the Feast of All Saints. As I have quite a few Carmelite readers (or at least I got the impression I did!) I thought it might appreciate it being quoted in full. The translation is a combination of Google Translate and my untangling its incomprehensible sentence structure:

"No one can say 'Holiness is out of my reach'.

It doesn't hang on some remarkable feat, belong to a specific age, require a certain relationship or a dead serious manner.

On the outside one notices very little, although with time it will begin to take shape.

God in heart and God in mind- there lies the key to Holiness"
