Quote of the day, 20 March: Blessed Titus Brandsma

O, just leave me here silently alone,
The chill and cold around me
And let no people be with me
Here alone I grow not weary.

For Thou, O Jesus, art with me
I have never been so close to You.
Stay with me, with me, Jesus sweet,
Your presence makes all things good for me.

Blessed Titus Brandsma

O Jesus (excerpts)

It is held in the collections of the Musées royaux des Beaux-Arts de Belgique in Brussels. Our detail of the painting was provided by Jean Louis Mazieres on Flickr (Some rights reserved).
