TAIZÈ: FRÈRE ALOIS, "RECONCILIATION OF CHRISTIANS, A MARK OF THE GOSPEL"

(Sir Europe – Strasbourg) – "If we look for a reconciliation of Christians, it is not to be stronger. It is not even to withdraw into ourselves. We look for a reconciliation of Christians for it to be a mark of the Gospel and for it to encourage humans and peoples to get closer to each other again". Frère Alois, prior of the Taizè community, said this to the 30 thousand young people who were in Strasbourg from 28th December to 1st January for the yearly ecumenical meeting of prayer. "A visible communion among all the people who love Christ, among all the people who confide in Christ, may be accomplished – Alois also said – on condition we put forgiveness and reconciliation at the centre of our life. This also applies to bringing peace into the human family". The meeting ended with the notice of the next meeting venue, due to take place in Prague from 29th December 2014 to 2nd January 2015. Card. Dominik Duka, archbishop of the Czech capital, responded to such announcement by sending a message of invitation. The president of the Ecumenical Council of the Czech Churches, pastor Daniel Fajfr, adds: "Dear young friends, I join cardinal Duka and, on behalf of the Churches united in the Ecumenical Council of the Czech Churches, I do invite you to the meeting in Prague". Duka goes on: "We are glad to welcome you. Bring your friends along and, God willing, see you next year".” “
