Taizé turns 70

World Christian leaders in August paid tribute to the ecumenical Taizé community in eastern France, which this year marks the 70th anniversary of its founding by Brother Roger Schutz.

He died in 2005 at age 90 after being stabbed by a mentally disturbed woman at the community's headquarters in Burgundy.

Olav Fykse Tveit, general secretary of the World Council of Churches, described Taizé "as a model for attending to the spiritual and physical needs of the whole people of God and in particular the needs of young people."
