Terri Martyred

Today, Theresa Marie Schindler Schiavo, becomes a martyr for the mentally and cognitively disabled.

The Martyrdom of Theresa

Edith Stein was gassed by the Nazis on 9 August 1942. When she became a Carmelite nun of the Catholic Church, she became Teresa. The ages now know her as Saint Teresa Benedicta. Because of her Jewishness, the Nazis devalued her humanity and sent her to Auschwitz. American Daughter has a lovely illustrated post featuring others named Theresa.[Schiavo, martyr]
