Centre of renewal

April 13, 2014

Brother Emile first heard of Taizé in 1974 in his small hometown in Northern Ontario where there was not much to interest young people in Christianity. Accepting an invitation to visit the little community tucked in Burgandy, France, he rediscovered the Christian faith that had been part of his childhood, but that he had abandoned as a young teenager. He entered the community in 1976 and stayed! Watch this hour-long WITNESS interview for wonderful insights into this renowned ecumenical community where the practices of monastic life - prayer, work, and hospitality, as well as the commitments the brothers make: celibacy, pooling of goods, and the ministry of Christian unity- form the foundation of one of the greatest centres of renewal and hope in the Church and in the world.
