Brother Roger entered the life of eternity on August 16, 2005. The Taizé Community is publishing these pages to attest to its infinite gratefulness for the gift of its founders life. This book records the principal intuitions of Brother Roger and how he worked them out practically in the course of the community’s history. Some texts from his books and letters are printed here, as well as excerpts from a long conversation recorded in 1992 but never published.
Beside each of these texts there are a few of the thousands of messages of condolence sent to Taizé after Brother Roger’s death. Choose to Love is the title that Brother Roger intended to give an unfinished book that he was preparing during the last weeks of his life. Some texts he collected for this book are also included.
