Dear Followers of my Blog and friends,
I recently put together this Taizé reflective service for our Erin Hall community, that for the moment, meets online. I share it with you. It is an hour in length so you may want to watch parts of it through the week. There is also a short reflection as the Homily, and a number of chants to enhance your worship.
The images are of the Sacrada Familia, Antoni Gaudi’s bascilica in Barcelona, which I had the good fortune to observe and enter while on a hockey tour in 2018.
I was amazed at the quality of light as I entered the church. It lingers with me still. As you enter it is as though stone turns to light, as you leave light turns to the reality of earth (stone), to an earth infused with a transcendent light, for those who have eyes to see. Please enjoy and share.
Every year I invite regular readers of my blog to consider making a small donation to it’s upkeep. If you would like to do so my banking details are as follows:
