Taize and the message of trust

Are there realities which make life beautiful, and of which it can be said that they bring a kind of fulfilment, an inner joy? Yes, there are. And one of those realities bears the name of trust.

Do we realise that what is best in each of us is built up through a simple trusting? This is something even a child can do.

The words of Brother Roger of Taizé (pictured above) who was the subject of a superb BBC Radio 3 programme on December 17th. For me this was one of the most imporant broadcasts of 2006. It is available on demand until December 24th via this link - I urge you to listen and reflect on it as Christmas approaches.
