Priests from Taize served by old ladies.

Sometimes you have to put more effort into letting other people serve you, rather than in serving.

Once we were invited for a lunch and two ladies of approx. 80. served soup to everyone and didn’t want any help. i felt slightly embarassed because I didn’t go for small Taize community in order to be served food by  an old granny. But still it is the part of the story. God called us not only to give, but also to receive with love. The old lady is emerging behind me and asking “would you like more”? God also does not just only give us our due portion of love, but He keeps asking “do you want more”?

as we first spoke with the lady, she asked “the question of the day” which made us almost laugh our heads off

“are you future priests?”
