Our favorite is by the martyr, Father Titus Brandsma, O. Carm., put to death by the Nazis at Dachau in 1942, lines found written in his breviary after his death:
BEFORE A PICTURE OF JESUS IN MY CELL
A new awareness of Thy love
Encompasses my heart:
Sweet Jesus, I in Thee and Thou
In me shall never part.
No grief shall fall my way but I
Shall see thy grief-filled eyes;
The lonely way that Thou once walked
Has made me sorrow-wise.
All trouble is a white-lit joy
That lights my darkest day;
Thy love has turned to brightest light
This night-like way.
If I have Thee alone,
The hours will bless
With still, cold hands of love
My utter loneliness.
Stay with me, Jesus, only stay;
I shall not fear
If, reaching out my hand,
I feel Thee near.
This little book of Breviary Propers is truly a "MUST HAVE" for all who love the Carmelite spirit!
