Brother Alois received by Pope Francis

This Monday, March 12, Brother Alois was received in private audience by Pope Francis. As every year, he wanted to go to Rome to inform the Pope of the initiatives taken by the Taizé Community in its ecumenical search and in its welcome of young people. He spoke on behalf of young people in many countries, thanking the pope for the pastoral way in which he lives out his ministry as universal pastor.

He told him about the upcoming young adult gatherings organized by the community in Lviv (Ukraine) in April, in Hong Kong in August, and the European meeting at the end of this year in Madrid. Brother Alois also mentioned the welcome of refugees that the Taizé Community has been undertaking for a very long time and which has greatly expanded in recent years.
