Focusing on a Saint’s love of the Eucharist, and how that love was manifested throughout his life, including in a most powerful way in Nazi concentration camps. We will look at the inspiring spiritual journey of St. Titus Brandsma who was brutally punished for speaking out against Nazism, yet he never wavered in his faith and never lost his joy.
In Schevenigen prison, he noted, “The Adoro Te has become my favorite prayer. Frequently I sing it softly and this helps me to make a spiritual communion.”
Transferred to Dachau concentration camp, he was beaten mercilessly, but advised his fellow prisoners not to worry for he was consoled by the Eucharistic Lord. As we consider Saint Titus’ love of the Eucharist, we also will ponder how his witness might inspire our National Eucharistic Revival.
