Elisabeth Hense – Joseph Chalmers, ed. Titus Brandsma: Letters to the Family - Collected Works, Vol. 2. Edizione Carmelitane – 2021 - 526 pages.
This is the second volume of the translation of the writings of Blessed Titus Brandsma, O. Carm., into English. This volume collects the numerous writings to his parents, siblings, and other family members. While many others have been lost, this collection shows the depth of Blessed Titus’ attachment and concern for his family. He discusses many of the important family matters as well as shares in their joys and sorrows, advises the family on difficult decision and also wrote extensively about his own life and his concerns. He never forgot a birthday, name day, profession day, wedding day, or religious feast day of his relatives— all remembered with a letter or card.
The cards and letters also give a sense of how well-travelled Blessed Titus was due to his work for the Dutch province of the Order as well as his many civic, educational, and Church commitments.
