Finalmente decidi pegar num dos livros que a minha tia-avó me deu e compreender "Taizé", eu idiota achava que era uma pessoa, não, não é uma pessoa.
Taizé é uma comunidade que foi fundada em 1940 pelo irmão Roger.
É uma comunidade dedicada à reconciliação (estão presentes pessoas de variadíssimas culturas).
Em Taizé as pessoas focam-se na oração e meditação cristã, dão valor ao silêncio e não tentam preenche-lo com os ruídos do nosso mundo, que acabam por preencher esse silêncio com nada.

Taize. the utopian society that is working and functioning in today's society. I have traveled to Taize when I was a freshman in college, when brother roger was still with us. His writing and community he has created is deep and moving, for those who go there seeing a community with their brothers and sisters in christ. Prayer and meditation.

Although the food was a bit on the limp side.

If he could. I say he should become a saint

My first experience with Taize was an actual pilgrimage to a Reservation in South Dakota. During that time, I had been blown off my feet and fell in love with the movement. Therefore, I had high hopes for this book. In truth, it's not bad... it just could use some work. The author makes a lot of huge claims with adequately supporting them.
