30,000 youth to attend Taizé meeting in Berlin
December 15, 2011
An estimated 30,000 youth will travel to Berlin later this month to attend the annual European meeting of Taizé, the French ecumenical monastic community founded in 1940.
“For a new solidarity among human beings to spring up at all levels--in families, communities, towns and villages, between countries and continents--courageous decisions are needed,” said Brother Alois, prior of the community. “By his cross and resurrection Christ has established a new solidarity between all human beings. In him the fragmentation of humanity into opposing groups is already overcome; in him all form one family.”
