    Still waiting for the Church of Peter to return to a liturgy read & sung in the intended language of the scriptures & songs that they were written: Latin. Compline is not the same in any other language.

      I am fairly certain that Peter spoke Greek? But in either case, our Anglican tradition teaches that it is a thing plainly repugnant to the Word of God, and the custom of the Primitive Church, to have public Prayer in the Church, or to minister the Sacraments, in a tongue not understanded of the people.

    I agree with the response. I love Taize services as well as listening to Taize worship songs as I move through the days. I feel like half a person inside when the music/lyrics leave my understanding out of the process.
