Brother Roger, the founder of the great ecumenical community of Taizé, wrote these simple daily meditations for himself as much as for those who will read them. Peace of Heart distills the message Taizé has offered throughout more than fifty years: How can we rediscover a fine human hope, and still more, hope in God, when our steps become heavy and disenchantment gains the upper hand?
The book is for everyone who is touched by the mission of Taizé and particularly for the young people who visit in such numbers during the summer months. It is for those who aspire to maintain peace of heart in all things, living in joy, simplicity, and mercy. It is a book to be kept, treasured, and consulted at regular intervals.
