Prayer is like a secret garden made up of silence and rest and inwardness. But there are a thousand and one doors into this garden and we all have to find our own.

Today I am praying in one of my favourite ways... using the chants and music of the Taizé Community, with the brothers and pilgrims in the actual Church of the Reconciliation itself. What's great is that I'm not in charge; the music can just wash over me and fill me with serenity and a sense of God's presence. You will be hearing/seeing more about this in weeks to come, guaranteed.
In the meantime, I leave you with some of Jean Vanier’s words about prayer:
