Taizé meditation for World Peace

Public Meeting, 7.30 - 8.30 pm, 29 November 2022.

Venue:Perth Branch

Rhonda Phillips and George Wester

A candlelit evening of meditation and uplifting music. Created by Brother Roger Schütz in 1940 for all traditions.

Brother Roger was 25 years old and was working for world peace and to reconcile the heart of the world, when he felt called to serve those suffering during the conflict of WW2, as his maternal grandmother had done during WWI. He rode a bicycle from Geneva, Switzerland to Taizé, a town in unoccupied France, just beyond the demarcation line of the zone occupied by German troops. He bought an empty house, where for two years
he and his sister, Genevieve, hid refugees, both Christian and Jewish, before being forced to leave Taizé, after the Gestapo had become aware of their activities following a tip off.

Brother Roger always kept a low profile, rarely giving interviews and refusing to permit any "cult" to grow up around himself. He was awarded the UNESCO Prize for Peace Education in 1988.
