Taizé services are characterized by quiet and candlelight, the repetition of melodious chants sung many times, a period of silence, and contemplative prayer. Let the songs sing themselves in you. Once you catch the tune, let yourself find the words -- in your heart or as you listen to your brothers and sisters as they sing. Let your spirit move along the path provided by rhythmic repetition, deeper and deeper into the stillness and beauty of God's presence. Ashes and blessing will be available for anyone who wishes.
