'Stay with me...keep watch with me...'

A Taizé prayer service for Lent was held at St. Kevin parish, Welland, Tuesday evening, one of four in the Taizé tradition held during the year. It is about an hour of meditative silence and chant, repeating certain biblical expressions that express the need for the mercy and love of God and pleading for the light, that for Christians, only Jesus Christ can give. The silence is made up of moments of quiet, time to assess one’s own life and give direction to what needs to be done to live with joy and courage facing the problems that life presents. The program of chant, hymns and music was performed by the parish choir and musicians. Candles provide light in the altar area and lighting in the church is turned down during the beautiful service.
