Titus Brandsma: A Tale of Two Cells

Following his arrest in January 1942 Titus Brandsma was imprisoned at Scheveningen for 7 weeks. Later he would be taken to Amersfoort and Cleve before being transported to Dachau Concentration Camp in June 1942. In his next prisons, circumstances would not be so pleasant, but his days at Scheveningen may have been God’s blessing as a spiritual preparation for what was to come.

Carmelite Rule

A rule of life was given to the early Carmelites by St Albert Avogadro, Patriach of Jerusalem between the years 1206 - 1214. It was finally approved by Pope Innocent in 1247 and later underwent mitigations which were not in the original text.

The Carmelite Rule states that is basic for a Carmelite to "live a life of allegiance to Jesus Christ - how, pure in heart and stout in conscience, he must be unswerving in the service of his Master" [no.2].
