Taize Ecumenical Prayer Service – Preparing a Place of Unity and Peace
Saint Mary of the Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic Church, 1009 Stafford Avenue, Fredericksburg, Virginia 22401
Prayer in the spirit of the Taize Community is a meditative form of common prayer. Gathered in the presence of Christ we sing uncomplicated, repetitive songs, uncluttered by too many words, allowing the mystery of God to become tangible through the beauty of simplicity. A few words sung over and over again reinforce the meditative quality of prayer. They express a basic reality of faith that can quickly be grasped by the intellect and that gradually penetrates the whole being.
