The Taizé Community is an ecumenical monastic order in Taizé, France, composed from Catholic and Protestant traditions. It was founded in 1940 by Brother Roger Schütz, a Reformed Protestant.
The style of Christian worship, practised by the ecumenical Taizé community, is characterized by the repetitive singing of simple harmonized tunes, often in various languages, interspersed with readings, prayers, and periods of silence.
The Sisters of the Divine Redeemer, Priests and lay people spent one hour in Taizé Prayer on Saturday, October 14, 2017 at 8:00 PM. The words of the Prophet Isaiah, "Yet it was our infirmities that He bore, our suffering that He endured." (Is 53:4), led them into this prayer. With chanting repeatedly the short verses of Psalms and prayers they asked God for peace in the world, families and their souls. In the time of silence, drifted by the rhythm and the words of songs, they rested in God's presence. The candle light reminded them the Light of the world, Jesus Christ, our Redeemer.
