Taizé is a small village in Burgundy, France, where a twenty-five-year-old pastor from Switzerland, moved in 1940. Subsequently known as Brother Roger, this spiritual leader, with his sister Genevieve, bought a house where they hid Christian and Jewish refugees during the second World War. Always committed to reconciling the various Christian churches, Brother Roger formed a monastic community of Catholic and Protestant men at Taizé in 1944. In the successive years, young adults began arriving to the community of Taizé to attend meetings of prayer and reflection and to pray communally in the large monastic Church of the Reconciliation. Today, thousands of young pilgrims are welcomed to the community every week. For more information, go to http://www.taize.fr/.
