Reading and listening for everybody

During the celebrations of the 1150th anniversary of the arrival of Saints Cyril and Methodius to Great Moravia authorial readings of contemporary Christian authors will take place. The cycle of the authorial readings will be accompanied by talks and discussions on topics connected with personalities of the authors and their books. Among those who have accepted invitations are Marie Svatošová, a female physician and foundress of the Czech hospice movement; Jiří Grygar, an astronomer and propagator of science; Martin Komárek, a journalist and commentator; Peter Tavel, a psychologist and theologian; and other personalities. The rhapsody theater will introduce a composed program with classical music and English spiritual poetry “Diamond and Teardrop”.

The first evening of the cycle will take place on Wednesday 28th November. At 5 p.m. in the František Bartoš Regional Library a meeting with the journalist Martin Komárek will take place. The meeting will be devoted to the authorial reading from his book Bůh nezná budoucnost (God does not know the future). There will also be space for questions related to the journalistic profession of Mr. Komárek. The following day, Martin Komárek will speak in the Masaryk Public Library in Vsetín and have a discussion with students there.

  • Here are our roots.

    (Blessed John Paul II, 22nd April 1990, Velehrad)

    They wanted to become part of those nations and to share their destiny in everything. Here, in this place, at Velehrad, in Moravia, we can feel the historical legacy of the kingdom in a peculiar way – we can feel even those who became its keepers and guardians.

    (Blessed John Paul II)

  • For us, people of the present age, their apostolate contains even the elocution of the ecumenical appeal, i.e. to build unity again, in a peaceful reconciliation, which later after their deaths was heavily damaged, and in the first place the unity between the East and the West.

    (Blessed John Paul II)

  • Their work is also a very important contribution to the growth of the common Christian roots of Europe, which by their firmness and viability create one of the main contact points, which must be respected by every serious attempt at reunification of our continent in a new and topical way.

    (Blessed John Paul II)

  • The story of both brothers, Cyril and Methodius, is a distinct example of unity.

    Saints Cyril and Methodius contributed, to a great extent, to the building of Europe, not only regarding its Christian religious community but also concerning its civil and cultural unity.

    (Blessed John Paul II)
