"We will have such a great opportunity to gather young people in your beautiful country. We are still extremely surprised with the fact that many people from Ukraine are coming to Taizé today, covering thousands of kilometers across Europe. It's not easy trip. Therefore, we are pleased that Ukrainian youth joins this movement. In addition, Roman Catholic, Greek Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant young people come from Ukraine - and they all go together, "said brother Alois.

According to him, in Riga first regional meeting of Taizé took place, and then Riga already welcomed young people as the capital of Taizé's European meeting.

Perhaps, in future Lviv will host Taizé's European meeting, he supposed.

"Let's take one step, then the next. Slowly, gradually ... Let us enjoy this opportunity to unite. It will also help us and the people who come to your country to pray for peace in Ukraine. This is one of the reasons why we want to come to Ukraine and show that we are with you in this difficult situation that lasts a long time, " says Brother Alois.
