Taize Evening with Bro. Ghislain

21 04 2010

KUCHING – The Commission for Youth has coordinated an Taize Evening with Bro. Ghislain on last Sunday, 18th April at the Archbishop’s Hall.   More than 100 peoples attended the Taize evening.

Bro. Ghislain is a Taize Brother covers the Asia Pacific Region to conduct retreat, seminar and Taize prayer.  His last visit to Kuching was 7 years ago.  He shared the Taize message and later conducted the Taize prayer.  He also explained the meaning of some icons used during the prayer.  We are very blessed to have him with us.  He was happy to meet the young people in our Archdiocese including the youth from Tebedu.  He said the youth has the heart to pray and all have responded very positively to Taize prayer.

The prayer session ended with a simple fellowship with Bro. Ghislain.

Hymn for Good Friday – O Sacred Head Surrounded

2 04 2010

The hymn is based on a long medieval Latin poem, Salve mundi salutare, with stanzas addressing the various parts of Christ’s body hanging on the Cross. The last part of the poem, from which the hymn is taken, is addressed to Christ’s head, and begins “Salve caput cruentatum.” The poem is attributed to St. Bernard of Clairvaux (1091-1153).
