Foreword: trying to “Shout the Truth” in Words surely surely runs the risk of making mistakes and of generalizing too much.
This saying is also absolutely necessary for someone to take the responsibility of trying to be sincere and objective to serve as a renewal guide for a “flock” of imitators who do not take any risks.
The slogan indicated by Taizé as the “Pilgrimage of Trust on Earth” is very similar to an Advertising Message.
Let’s face it at last: the Most of the Young Participants take part in the Taizé Meetings especially for Traveling, for Leisure and maybe for some useful “Personal Meeting”.
We must be Realistic and stop continuing to believe in the Fanta-Religion Advertising Ideas about Developing some kind of Additional and Lasting Trust on Earth.
The Raw Reality of Facts betrays us, yes, because if We Where Really Developing a Precious Network of Trust lasting on Earth, our whole life would Transform!
In fact, within us we know very well what the truth is, we are simply participating in a species of artificial “Staging”, a Finction destined to vanish at dawn the next day.
Of course than I know how How Difficult it is to Approach and Progress Really on the path of Trust and Love of Jesus Christ.
But Now How do you verify it like That? Just try to Re-contact and propose a Confirmation of Friendship and Affection established to some of the “Friends” encountered to find yourself in front to The Wall of Indifference.
Because Unfortunately today Generally No more Importance is done to Contacts that Testify to Solidarity, Friendship, Self-Esteem and Selfless Affection.
Because after you put your head back under the sand like Ostriches and continue with your own Traditional Habits that are Devoid of True Life.
I tell you this because over time I have participated in several Christian Religious Groups and Unfortunately I have never found anything that could be indicated as Truly Evangelical.
Generally, there is Go Generosity, Openness and Friendliness towards the Neighbour, No Real Solidarity is Established.
What Vige is the simple “Imitation Rule” of How one Should Behave, How to Act to represent the “Better” and how to Obtain the Best Personal Result.
You do not take any risk of Renewing Yourself, yes, because to go toward the Neighbour you have to have the Strength and the Ability to Return as Small Child.
Yes, because you feel Strong and Powerful when there is Someone who is Interested in you, someone who Gives Energy and Affect.
Again, easily you feel Crazly Pridous when for a Any Reason you can Reject the Contact, Affection and Opening of Someone else.
“At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, ‘Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?’
He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them.
And he said: ‘Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”
Too Bad that this is Quite the Opposite of the Message of Christ which Even come to Affirms: “There is no Love greater than who gives his Life for the Others”.
So the contemporary Social-Utilitarian Christian never runs the Risk of Giving Himself to Someone with True Affection and by accepting him without Judgments and Pre-Concepts as Jesus Christ did.
Instead it is always there to Assess what the Due Behavior should be, whether it be the Case or No, whether it is Conceived or Less.
Yes, because it Takes True Courage to Become a Real Christian in Flesh and Bone.
“But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.”
“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
You are my friends if you do what I command.”
Sure that to Dream it’s Easy, but making these Dreams become Reality Requires much True Trust, Will, Application and Hearth!
And it Serves Real Strenght to Go Against the Blind Current of Mass Indifference, which is Seduced only by the Affirmed, the Powerful, the Famous, and the Rich.
