Taizé Prayer Service
April 19, 6:30pm-7:30pm
Taizé Prayer is a repetitive prayer set to simple music, interspersed with meditation. Meditation is a form of contemplative prayer in which we move beyond words, thoughts, and images, and opens us to God’s mysterious silence within us. There is no teaching or preaching. It is short chants repeated over and over in the dark. Brother John says, “It is a time to rest in God and let the words listened to and sung penetrate one’s being.”
A Swiss monk, Brother John initiated this prayer form more than 70 years ago, in the small village of Taizé. In this community of brothers, they emphasize service, ecumenicalism, and reconciliation between divided faith traditions.
Facilitated by Rochester Franciscan Sisters and Cojourners.
