What can I expect at a Taizé Service?
Here are some answers from the Taizé web site.
Singing is one of the most essential elements of Taizé worship. Short songs, repeated again and again, give it a meditative character. As the words are sung over many times, this reality gradually penetrates the whole being. Meditative singing thus becomes a way of listening to God.
Silence makes us ready for a new meeting with God. In silence, God’s word can reach the hidden corners of our hearts.

A short meditation for today: "Holy Spirit, comforting Spirit, happy are they who turn to you over and over again! And when we entrust to you, even without words, our lives and those of others, our longings find a Gospel response."

Meditations by Brother Alois: "The poor of this world are, sometimes unwittingly, very close to Jesus who was poor among the poor. When we open our hearts to those who are wounded by life, we draw closer to Jesus. At the same time we understand his words better, and his light is rekindled in us. The meaning of our life becomes more evident, it is a sign of the love of God, we are made to love and to be loved."

Prayer by Brother Alois for Christmas ~
Eternal God, at Christmas, by Jesus’ coming on earth, you gave humanity a new beginning. An unknown light arose, a hope of peace for the whole human family. You make this light to shine in us by your Holy Spirit, and it illuminates our darkness. You renew our wonder at your coming in our hearts. So we want to sing to you without end, while remaining close to all those who are in difficulty and suffering, and who long to see your light.
