Brother Roger of Taize

Brother Roger of Taize was murdered yesterday, stabbed in the throat (of all places), three times, in full view of some 2,500 participants at a Taize evening service. What an extraordinary ending for the gentle man, who’d hardly have been thought to have been martyr material; yet how else could you class this murder, except as martyrdom?
