What is a Taize Mass?

I've been to Taize prayer services which I find absolutely wonderful. Very quiet and conducive to contemplation. The chants have a way of pulling people into the silence, even those who are not usually drawn to stillness.

I never heard of a Taize mass. Taize is an ecumenical community. Those who are Catholic attend Mass with the Catholic brothers before entering into the community prayer around the cross.

We have conducted Taize prayer a number of times in our parish and it is simply beautiful. It is basically the Taize chants, a reading from scripture, intercessions and the opportunity to venerate the cross...all done in candlelight with icons surrounding the cross. There is nothing a Catholic could object to.

It is like asking what do you think of this adulterous relationship? Heresy and Truth do not mix. A Catholic Mass in the context of an ecumenical 'community' is adulterously scandalous.

Awaken all ye slumbering Saints!

Pope John Paul II looked very favorable on the Taize community.Br. Roger, the founder of the community, sought in this community to reconcile all Christians. Although he never formally converted to Catholicism he considered himself Catholic. Pope Benedict XVI gave Br. Roger communion at John Paul II's funeral. Bro. Roger's funeral was presided over by Cardinal Walter Kasper. . The current head of the Taize community is a Catholic.

The community has done much to minister to the youth and has brought many to Christ.

Yes, and some Popes had mistresses. Doesn't make it right.

What does that remark have to do with anything. The community has been recognized and highly thought of by Blessed John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI, as well as Blessed John XXIII I think approval by those three popes is worth a lot.

I would refer you to a post by the moderator on another thread with the same title:

Taizé

Please, this community enjoys the Church's approval at the highest level. Treat them with respect.

I'm not sure I understand how Taize works, but if a youth comes to Christ through Taize, are they Protestant or Catholic?

You quoted me as making that remark. It was made by RosaryCrusader. I responded to it by stating that 3 popes have thought highly of Taize.

Actually there are specific but rare occasions when a non Catholic can receive, but they need permission of the priest and must fully believe in the Real Presence. I would have to look for the specific documentation.

CCC 1401 When, in the Ordinary's judgment, a grave necessity arises, Catholic ministers may give the sacraments of Eucharist, Penance, and Anointing of the Sick to other Christians not in full communion with the Catholic Church, who ask for them of their own will, provided they give evidence of holding the Catholic faith regarding these sacraments and possess the required dispositions.


Can. 844 §1 Catholic ministers may lawfully administer the sacraments only to catholic members of Christ's faithful, who equally may lawfully receive them only from catholic ministers, except as provided in §§2, 3 and 4 of this canon and in can. 861 §2.

§4 If there is a danger of death or if, in the judgement of the diocesan Bishop or of the Episcopal Conference, there is some other grave and pressing need, catholic ministers may lawfully administer these same sacraments to other christians not in full communion with the catholic Church, who cannot approach a minister of their own community and who spontaneously ask for them, provided that they demonstrate the catholic faith in respect of these sacraments and are properly disposed.
