Taizé: Communion in Prayer - Catholic Focus

June 11, 2014
As France prepared to enter the Second World War, Roger Schutz-Marsauche, a 25 year old Swiss man, inspired by the Gospel ideals of reconciliation and fraternity sought to establish a community of men where kindness of heart and simplicity would be at the centre of everything. What started out as a small group of brothers living out the Gospel in the remote French village of Taizé has blossomed today into a vibrant ecumenical monastic community where more than a 100 000 pilgrims gather each year. Join host Cheridan Sanders as she speaks with Brother Emile about this extraordinary community of faith.
