Тезе.jpgIn Madrid, where the 41st annual European meeting hosted by the community of Taizé is bringing together 15,000 young people from across the continent, the Prior of Taizé, Brother Alois, announced that the next European youth meeting will take place in Poland, in the city of Wrocław, from December 28, 2019 to January 1, 2020.

The Primate of the Polish bishops, Msgr. Wojciech Polak, Archbishop of Gniezno, and the auxiliary bishop of Wrocław, Msgr. Andrzej Siemieniewski, made a special trip to Madrid to be present at the announcement.

At a time when the construction of Europe meets with great resistance, when misunderstandings multiply between countries, a meeting in Poland will give thousands of young people the experience that mutual trust can be built.

This will be the third time that this gathering of European Christian youth of all faiths will take place in Wrocław (after 1989 and 1995) and the fifth time in Poland (after Warsaw 1999 and Poznan 2009).

In announcing this meeting, the Taizé Community is responding to an invitation sent to it from Wrocław simultaneously by Catholic Archbishop Kupny, Lutheran Bishop Bogusz and the mayor of the city.

These annual European meetings are part of a "pilgrimage of trust on earth" led by Taizé for over forty years. The young adults who participate in these gatherings gather to pray together, to be part of a local church for a few days, and to explore themes such as understanding among peoples, peace, questions of faith, and social commitment. One of the objectives is to enable young people to live an experience of the church as a place of friendship, welcome and communion.

Today the Taizé Community brings together a hundred brothers, Catholics and of various Protestant origins, from more than thirty nations, committed together for life by monastic vows. By its very existence, it wishes to be a concrete sign of reconciliation between divided Christians and separated peoples.

    "Мировое Православие" - а что это такое?

    Міровоє православіє обов'язково врахує думку скаженого українофоба Михаила.

    Если такое поведение турецкого патриарха будет продолжаться, то Мировое Православие будет вынуждено принять меры для поддержания канонического порядка и послушания Мировому Православию.

    Якщо хтось має очі, то бачить звідки інформація. Навчіться чітко і без емоцій аналізувати інформацію та сприймати її. Сперечатися чи пояснювати таким неадекватам щось - це себе не поважати.

    Щодо народження в лісі: здорові батьки, чиста незаймана природа - здорова дитина. А народженим від алкоголіків та сигоретних наркоманів, якими "частує" своїх вірних патріарх, якому
