|Description:||January 1999. Blessed Titus Brandsma, 1881-1942. A Carmelite friar, martyred at Dachau on July 26, 1942. Here he is shown as a crucified figure, hanging from the bars of his cell window, holding the Eucharistic Bread which he concealed during a severe flogging. Around him is the mantle of Mary and the roses of Carmel. The rectangular shapes at the end of the window suggest newspapers. As chaplain to the Catholic journalists in Holland, he came into conflict with the Nazi occupiers for refusing to publish Nazi advertisements. An xpert in the Carmelite mystics he visited Terenure College in the Summer of 1935 on his way to lecture in the United States.|
