Perspectives: The Weekly Edition - Prayer and the Taizé Community

Salt + Light Media

Friday, March 2, 2012

Lent is a period of reflection and prayer, of looking for the meaning of our prayers. One community is intimately connected with this search is the Taize Community.
The Taize community is an ecumenical society of more than 100 brothers who take vows and commit themselves to the apostolate of reconciliation. It began in 1940 when brother Roger Schutz obtained a house in the French village of Taize. Since then this community has attracted lots of people mainly because of the simplicity of their way of life – which is reflected in their prayers based on the liturgy of the hours.
Since the Taize community is visiting Canada next week  we bring you an encore presentation of the conversation Pedro had in March 2010 with Br. Emile about his community is and how a community based on the prayer can be an inspiration to young people around the world.
