Blessed Titus Brandsma

"He who wants to win the world for Christ must have the courage to come in conflict with it."

  1. Titus provides Inspirational advice because, unlike many, he backed up his words with his actions.
    He also said something equally simple yet profound:
    "place all your Trust in The Lord. All will work out in the end".
    With COURAGE to do the right thing -
    irrrespective - so lacking in many of today's leaders, the example shown by this humble monk sets am example for us all.
    Journalists in particular should read about his role during WWII in making a stand against Nazi propaganda. As a professor with responsibility for journalism he could have 'sat on the fence', but his refusal to do so ultimately cost him his life. Courage indeed and an example for us all in every role in every walk of life. JMC Dublin Ireland
