From the 15th to the 17th of September, just gone by, an International Marian Congress, organised by the Carmelites (O.Carm. and OCD) took place at the Domus Carmeli in Fatima, to mark the first centenary of the Fatima apparitions. The title of the congress was “Maria, Mae do Carmelo” (Mary, the Mother of Carmel). The participants included the two general leaders, Fernando Millán Romeral, O.Carm. and Saverio Cannistrà, OCD, along with several Carmelites, (lay and religious) from Spain and Portugal and representatives of other countries also. In the course of the event the speakers dwelt, from various points of view, upon the link that exists between the Fatima phenomenon and devotion to Our Lady of Mount Carmel. The Marian experience of leading figures in the history of the Carmelite Order and some aspects of the marian dimension of the Carmelite charism were also studied.  The closing Eucharist was led by Bishop Vitalino Dantas, O.Carm., retired bishop of Beja, in the Chapel of San José, the Carmelite monastery in which Sr. Lucia, one of the visionaries, lived  We must thank and congratulate Fr. Ricardo Reinho, O.Carm. the Commissary General of Portugal, and Pedro Lourenço Ferreira, OCD., the Provincial of the Discalced Carmelites in Portugal, for this wonderful joint initiative.

Over the past three years the commission has produced two booklets, the first was entitled: To be a Carmelite Today: A Joy ever new, a Joy to be shared; the second entitled: Drinking from our own well: Joy in Contemplative Community (both available on the website….). In each of these booklets are set out reflections on the relationship between Pope Francis’ Evangeli Gaudium and our Carmelite charism and spirituality.

All members of the Carmelite family are invited to use this material at community meetings, Third Order gatherings, with prayer groups or individual reflection. Each booklet has seven sections and this latest one contains the following: 1. The Word that visits me in the silence of my solitude. 2. The Word that cuts to the heart. 3. The Word that is incarnated in daily life. 4.The Word that creates and sets us free. 5. The Word that compels me to proclaim. 6 The Word that is my refuge, my spiritual armour. 7. The Word that transforms me in love.

75th anniversary of the death of Blessed Titus Brandsma

56/2017 – 26 – 07

Today, 26 of July 2017, we remember the 75° anniversary of the martyrdom of blessed Titus Brandsma in the concentration camp of Dachau.

Born in the Frisian city of Bolsward, Holland, in 1881, Bl. Titus Brandsma joined the Carmelites while still young and was ordained priest in 1905. He undertook further studies in Rome and was awarded a doctorate in philosophy at the Gregorian Pontifical University.

Returning to Holland, he taught in a number of schools before taking up a post as Professor of Philosophy and the History of Mysticism at the Catholic University of Nijmegen where he was later appointed Rector Magnificus. A noted writer and journalist, in 1935, he was appointed adviser to the bishops, for Catholic journalists. He was noted for being ready to receive anyone in difficulty and to help in whatever way he could. In the period leading up to and during the Nazi occupation in Holland, he argued passionately against the National Socialist ideology, basing his stand on the Gospels, and he defended the right to freedom in education and for the Catholic Press. As a result, he was imprisoned. So began his Calvary, involving great personal suffering and degradation whilst, at the same time, he himself brought solace and comfort to the other internees and begged God's blessing on his jailers. In the midst of such inhuman suffering, he possessed the precious ability to bring an awareness of goodness, love and peace. He passed from one prison or camp to another until he arrived in Dachau where he was killed on 26th July 1942. He was beatified as a martyr by Pope John Paul II on 3rd November 1985.

Tomorrow, 27 July 2017, in our Church of Santa Maria in Traspontina (Rome), a solemn Eucharist will be celebrated to commemorate the death of Blessed Tito Brandsma 75 years ago in the Dachau Concentration Camp.
