What are Taizé prayers?

A Taizé prayer is punctuated by meditative songs. A simple phrase that reveals an essential Christian truth is sung in many languages. Every time it is repeated, the soul plunges deeper in the Christian mystery. During the prayer, there is also time for silence, time for the proclamation of the Word of God and time to pray for our brothers and sisters.

It is a moment of grace, hope, peace, tranquility and rest.
