Brother Roger Schutz (1915-2005) was the beloved founder of Taizé, an ecumenical monastic community in France, dedicated to reconciliation among Christians and all peoples. In recent decades Taizé became a pilgrimage site for young people from around the world.This book presents the best of his airitual writings.
Very few people in a generation manage to change the whole climate of a religious culture, but Brother Roger did just this. He changed the image of Christianity itself for countless young people; he changed the church’s perception of the absolute priority of reconciliation. . . And he did this without any position of hierarchical authority.—Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury
