WHO WAS TITUS BRANDSMA? O.Carm. (23 February 1881 – 26 July 1942), was a Dutch Carmelite friar, Catholic priest and professor of philosophy. Brandsma was vehemently opposed to Nazi ideology and spoke out against it many times before the Second World War. He was imprisoned in the infamous Dachau concentration camp, where he died. He has been beatified by the Roman Catholic Church as a martyr of the faith.
SYMBOLISM OF BEADS: Inspired by his rosary in prison. Given to him by another prisoner who became a martyred shortly after Fr Titus died.
……“I see God in the work of his hands and the marks of his love in every visible thing, and it sometimes happens that I am seized by a supreme joy which is above all other joys.”….. TITUS BRANDSMA
