Taizé, France, an inter-denominational monestary

A young adult, singing to herself and God in a field of wildflowers. There were a thousand young adults here this week, from all over Europe and the world. Next week, for Holy Week there will be 6000, most between 18 and 25 years old.

A window in the chapel, one of the three magi, travelling to find an answer to his questions, responding to something he doesn't even understand. But he is set aglow when he finds it. This is why they come.

 The cross, the candles in the chapel. In the end, All is encountered here in the slow meditative songs of prayer and the silence in between.
