The two Sister Anne’s collaborated with a team of brothers of Taizé and young adult volunteers
to prepare a gathering of young people in Rome, which included
an ecumenical prayer vigil in St. Peter’s Square on 30 September.
This coincided with the opening of the Synod.
The preparation time was a powerful experience of synodality in practice
where “really doing things together” was the guiding principle.
Our moments of listening, sharing, prayer and gatherings
moved, questioned and even amazed us…
The time of prayer in Saint Peter’s Square was a joyful moment of hope:
the Kingdom of God is here!

Several sisters from Belgium, France and Ljubljana ( the location of the next European Meeting of Taizé) joined the other pilgrims to pray with and for the delegates of the Synod, which includes our sister Josée (from our community in Kinshasa).

Around the world, many of our sisters joined in the prayer
thanks to TV networks and channels!

Strengthened by this initial enthusiasm, together,
we continue to bring this initiative to the common prayer
in our communities around the world.
