Czech-German religious service: “Whom shall I fear?” (Psalm 27:1)

If people are threatened and persecuted or if they are forced to suffer injustice, for Christians this means a special call to action. Life in a community with God gives the faithful the certainty and strength to display their love for their fellow human beings. Psalm 27 says: “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?”

Throughout the 20th century, Czech and German Christians were able to take care of those who found themselves in difficulties, and proved their courage in trying times. We shall present the actions and the testimonies of faith of four courageous Christians of the era: Blessed Restituta Kafka, Přemysl Pitter, Father Dr Paulus Sladek and Cardinal Dr Josef Beran. As a symbol of reconciliation, the Coventry Cross of Nails will be brought to the Brno service.

The mass will be celebrated by Father Pavel Hověz of the Brno-Lesná parish and P. Klaus Oehrlein and P. Mons. Anton Otte. Musical accompaniment will be provided by the choir of Brno-Lesná parish.

In collaboration with Ackermann-Gemeinde; the service will be held partly in Czech and partly in German.
