Preview

This chapter focuses on the Taizé Community. The fascinating thing about Taizé is that the coming and going of young visitors has shown little or no signs of abating. An equally interesting and significant element is the response of the community of brothers to the influx of the young. Although they had no particular training or preparation for youth ministry, they felt it was necessary to respond, to do all that was necessary to offer hospitality to those who came knocking at their door.
