Lent is a Season of Repentance. We are called to renew our commitment to our Baptism. Repentance is a turning away from the sins and mistakes of the past and a turning toward God.
The psalms of Lent share the message of God’s mercy and the people’s redemption. Penance does not mean sadness. We take joy in God’s mercy and love!
Lent is an opportunity for the community of faith to pause and reawaken to the bounty of God’s love. The goal of this season is to deepen our communal and individual awareness that God deeply loves us, and as our awareness deepens, so too do our relationships.
This month, let us rest in God’s mercy and love. Let us encounter God in prayerful silence.
The event will be live streamed for our many friends who cannot be with us physically.
What is Taizé?
Taizé prayer is practiced throughout the world. It is a meditative candle-lit form of community prayer that includes simple chants sung repeatedly, silence and prayers of praise and intercession. In prayer, we enter the silence, stilling the mind, opening the heart, surrendering to the action of the Spirit ever molding us into the image of Christ. The candles used in the service symbolize the presence of the risen Christ, who conquered darkness and sin and offers new life to all humankind.
Taizé Prayer comes from an ecumenical, monastic community in France and has spread to numerous spots around the world.
From the depths of the human condition, a secret aspiration rises up. Today many are thirsting for the essential reality: an inner life, signs of the Invisible. Nothing is more conducive to communion with the living God than meditative common prayer. When the mystery of God becomes tangible through the simple beauty of symbols, when it is not smothered by too many words, then a common prayer awakens us to heaven’s joy on earth.
