    From Taize: Two Commitments to Live Intensely

    A great meditation from Brother Alois at Taize:
    Here at Taizé we want to go together to the wellsprings of faith. We too, the brothers, have to make this journey every day. Even though, when we entered the community, we committed ourselves to follow Christ, to share everything, and to pray together three times a day, still, day after day, we too must strive to regain trust in God.

    Setting out over and over again on the road from worry towards trusting in God may involve an inner struggle. It is important in particular not to get caught up in inner fear, bitterness and hopelessness.
