George Weigel at First Things:

As of May 15, Catholic journalists around the world will be able to count one of their number among the saints, as Titus Brandsma, a Dutch Carmelite killed at the Dachau concentration camp in 1942, is canonized in St. Peter’s Square. At a moment when Catholic opinion journalism is in danger of falling victim to the ever-present dangers of trivialization, tribalism, and hysteria-mongering in this age of internet and social media demagogy, St. Titus Brandsma’s example of courage and fidelity under great pressure is well worth pondering.
