Lent Reflection (1): Edith Stein on Our Ontic Dependence on God

Despite this fleeing of being, I am; from moment to moment I am being held in being and in my fleeting being I am fastened to an enduring Being. I know that I am being held and therein I find calm and security.

Edith Stein, Endliches und ewiges Sein, translation by Antonio Calcagno (The Philosophy of Edith Stein, p. v)
