    Saint Edith Stein pray for us all; pray for all philosophers Husserl, Heidegger, Hegel, Nietzsche, Kierkegaard, all the pre and post Socratics, all the Asians and non-Asians too; pray for those of us living our lives and those in the astral planes approaching Heaven; pray for those with difficult decisions to bear, that they choose the right Ways; pray for those who have chosen incorrectly, that they find confession, repentance and repair; pray for each Venerable on the paths to Blessed, for each Blessed on the paths to Saint, for each Saint on the Ways to the Throne, and pray for each person to become better through their trials in ordinary life, Amen and the Theosophist Madame Blavatsky, Selah
