July 27 -- Bl Titus Brandsma, O. Carm.


The Carmelite calendar honours the Ancient Observance Carmelite Blessed Titus Brandsma today. The Inn has mentioned him almost every year on his feast day; he seems more relevant to our situation every year.

Here is one year's post with the text of his 2d lesson from the Carmelite propers. It includes a broken link to the biography posted by the Carmelite Province of the Most Pure Heart of Mary. However, those excellent pages are still on line here. They include the texts of some of his writings and a good many pictures.
