“Right at the depth of the human condition, lies the longing for a presence, the silent desire for a communion. Let us never forget that this simple desire for God is already the beginning of faith.”

How can we deepen our faith and our understanding of the Bible in every day life?

This section of the web site contains the “Letter for the year” by Brother Alois, the short Bible text read each day during the mid day prayer at Taizé, and a short meditation for each day by Brother Roger.

Every month, a Bible text accompanied by a short commentary and questions is proposed for reflection, either personal or in a group. Certain fundamental points of the faith – the Cross, the suffering of the innocent, the love of enemies, Christian hope … are presented in the form of a short “abc” or developed more fully in the “Short writings from Taizé” that can be downloaded free of charge.
