WPF Tour in the Netherlands 2 – Nijmegen

NEXT VISIT:  WPF Nijmegen 8 October 2021

When the light shines, something happens! Peace starts with  you!

The WPF Nijmegen shines next to a heavy traffic square. It is placed on a quiet place in front of the Titus Brandsma church. School classes frequently visit the church and the monastry because of the special meaning of Titus Brandsma. He was a Carmelite father, a mystic, a principle at the university and a socially involved man. Because of his actions during the Second World War he was captures and killed in Dachau.

The current father in the monastry is supporting homeless people, asylum seekers, people with debt problems, etc. He prays at the WPF every night! The WPF working group brings the light of the flame ànd their inner light to all memorial days and peace marches in Nijmegen.

When I visited the WPF working group, the evening started with sacred dance. It is a very committed and spiritual group. Each individual group member is closely connected to the inner working of the flame. When the light shines, something happens! Peace starts with  you!

Mansukh Patel’s book ‘The secret power of light’ is a living book to them.

This summer I got the idea to visit all WPF monuments in the Netherlands. I have not seen all yet and I would love to meet the people behind the monuments: they care for the flames and they spread the light through all kind of activities. How are they touched by the wpf? What are they motivated by?
