Glimmers of Happiness
Brother Roger of Taizé
With his characteristic mix of delicacy and force, the late Brother Roger reflects on some of the events and people that influenced his life and calling. He contemplates the steps Taizé has taken over the years to create signs of reconciliation amidst the divisions of humanity. Never far from the surface is the suggestion that the reader too can perhaps discern in his or her own life a glimmer of God's call, a happiness offered.
As and appendix, this volume also includes the "unfinished letter" to young people Brother Roger was preparing just before his death in August 2005. It contains a challenge of diconcerting simplicity, calling on the reader to live in a "kindheartedness that is constantly renewed".
