love is the voice under all silences

It has been twenty-five years since I first sung this song and it still feels the same.

Some things never change.

I don’t know how did I deserve it but I had three extremely relatively nice and peaceful night shifts in a row.* That’s what I call an unearned present.

So I will now put my feet up for an hour, drink a coffee, listen to this song and imagine that I’m there.

* well, so far, at least. I still have 5 hours to go until the end of my shift and in this business of nursing you never know what is yet to come.

If I take the wings of the morning and settle at the farthest limits of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me fast. If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light around me become night,” even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is as bright as the day, for darkness is as light to you.

Taizé prayer at Ursulinenkirche. No matter where I live, in which city of which country, visiting Taizé prayers is a stable point in my life. It is every time different, depending on the place it is held and the people it is organised by. This can be both good or disturbing. This time the prayer was strange, rather false in tuning and very, very loud (and not Taizé-like at all). Being a silent and reserved person, who instinctively avoids every loud situation in life, I ended up with a bad headache and some serious doubts about my future visits in this church.

Evening prayer at the church I used to visit more than a decade ago. I converted to Christianity at the age of 16 and was baptised at 18, because I fell in love with Brother Roger and the idea of Taizé. Even though life has made its turns since then, and I don’t consider myself a “real” Catholic anymore, those years remained a determining period of my past and played an important role in my becoming the person I am today. And my love for Taizé and for everything it means and symbolises, has never changed.

P.S.: I wanted to take a candlelight picture to show you how these prayers are beautiful but it was way too big a challenge for my poor camera. Even with the lights on it managed to make only blurry photos.

Evening prayer at Katakomba. At the age of twenty I was able to beat depression and take the control over my life in my own hands. Maybe I will be able to do it once again.

Waiting in vain for the midday prayer. It didn’t take place, still don’t know why.
