Tomáš Halík – Patience

with God 

 

April 24, 7 pm

 

Czech Center New York at the Bohemian National Hall

RSVP

 

Tomáš Halík presents his newly released book Patience with God (Doubleday).

For all the debate about belief and nonbelief in today’s world – and how everyone becomes pigeonholed by one or the other – Tomáš Halík teaches us that God requires us to persevere with our doubts, carry it in our hearts, and allow it to lead us to maturity. For Halík, patience is the main difference between faith and atheism. Faith, hope, and love are three aspects of patience in the face of God’s silence, which atheists interpret as “the death of God” and it is not taken seriously enough by fundamentalism or the enthusiasm of “facile belief.”

Tomáš Halík worked as a psychotherapist during the Communist regime in Czechoslovakia while at the same time was secretly ordained as a Catholic priest and active in the underground church. Since the fall of the regime, he has served as General Secretary to the Czech Conference of Bishops and was an advisor to Václav Havel. He has lectured at many universities throughout the world and is currently a professor of philosophy and sociology at Charles University. His books, which are bestsellers in his own country, have been translated into many languages and have received several literary prizes.

A mass will be held by Tomáš Halík in the Church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Astoria on April 26 at 10:30 am.
