40,000 young people...

...gathered in Rome this past week to pray and celebrate with the Holy Father. Read about it here. Faith, prayer, joy and unity...a message of hope grounded in the truth of Christ.

Did you read about it in the mainstream media? Thought not. And some Catholic commentators will prefer to ignore it too, as being too encouraging and hope-filled.

I was at one time wary about Taize, couldn't get enthusiastic at all, rather disliked it.  Over the years I have watched and watched. listened, learned, watched and waited. Am impressed.

Taize is about Christian unity, but also European unity. So a lot of the songs are in Latin, as the language of everyone and of no-one. So in a strange way it's gone full circle back to medieval Christianity.
