“Right at the depth of the human condition, lies the longing for a presence, the silent desire for a communion.
Let us never forget that this simple desire for God is already the beginning of faith.” – Brother Roger of Taizé
Taize is a form of prayer that uses song, psalm and/or scripture reading, silence and meditation, and intercessions praying for the needs of the world. It is meant to foster reconciliation and peace among all peoples. It is intercultural and ecumenical, prayed by Protestant, Orthodox, and Catholic. It can be prayed individually or in a group. This way of prayer is particularly practiced by youth all over the world.
