BROTHER ROGER, who was founder of the first European Christian ecumenical and monastic community, who was dedicated to the work of prayer and the living out of the Beatitudes, who welcomed thousands of young pilgrims and was a spiritual heir of Bonehoffer, died Tuesday at the age of 90 after being stabbed three times in the neck by a Romanian woman during a prayer service.

May he rest in peace.
