Titus Brandsma and Brother Lawrence of the Resurrection.

"After spending a number of years working in full time ministry doing international relief and development work I realized God was inviting me to something more. God was calling me to a deeper life of prayer, a contemplative way of life. The Carmelite ideal of "vacare Deo" (becoming free for God) resonated with me. The fraternal dimensions of the Carmelite brotherhood, living lives of solitude and apostolic work, provided a life-giving structure for me to say yes and respond to this invitation from God."
