Police said a woman stood up during a religious ceremony attended by some 2,500 people and stabbed Brother Roger three times in the throat. The 90-year-old died immediately.
This is unbelieveable to me. I only recently discovered Taize and their wonderful music (made even better by their wonderful work towards reconciliation). This shocks me in a very surprising way. It makes me consider that death can come at literally any time, even when we least expect it.
I hope that there is some kind of peaceful rest after we die, as Brother Roger has assuredly earned it.
