The Specifics of Supervision of Hospital Chaplains in the Czech Republic
Vačkářová, Zuzana ; Havrdová, Zuzana (advisor) ; Hajný, Martin (referee)
Professional supervision realized in terms of tripartite contract by trained supervisor is a part of care improvement in helping professions. Although pastoral supervision is manifesting many similarities to supervision in helping professions, a difference can be found in the emphasis on its spiritual and theological richness. There is no concept of such perceived supervision in the Czech Republic. This led to the need for mapping the situation of supervision provided to healthcare chaplains in the Czech Republic and for inquiries as to whether the provided supervision comply with the parameters of professional supervision. Spiritually centered holistic pastoral care, which is presented in their work, comes from biblical sources. Thus, spiritual dimension of human existence is firmly founded in the prior understanding of the healthcare chaplain (pastoral worker) and communication is realized in a specific language within specific discourse. Supervision provided to healthcare chaplains should, therefore, react to these circumstances and reflect them. The second phase of the research is concerned with the possible specifics and demands on the supervisor which lead from it. Key words: supervision, pastoral supervision, clinical pastoral care, spirituality, religiosity, spiritually centered holistic...
Spiritual Significance of the Orthodox Christian Church Chant
Vaňková Filina, Larisa ; Vopatrný, Gorazd Josef (advisor) ; Luptáková, Marina (referee)
This work contains a narrative about a liturgical chant, its history and various genres and styles. A lot of attention is paid to explaining the theory and practice of various ancient chants. All this helps to understand better the meaning of the phrase "spiritual influence". The second part of the work deals with the practice of the choir directors' (regents') work, the choice of the repertoire and the relationship between the choir director, the choir and the priest. It is about the influence of various musical styles, the tempo and power of the sound of the performed works on the spiritual state of a person. Speaking about the liturgical basis of choir singing in the Orthodox Church, I reveal the concepts of theory and practice. I recall the early Christian practice of psalm chant, traditional singing in an Orthodox church and also modern liturgical singing. The Church Charter is of great importance for understanding the choir singing. The essence of church chant is to convey the meaning of the prayers performed by musical means as fully as possible and transmit them to all those participating in the service, as the choir is the mouth of the worshipers. The challenges facing the Orthodox Church at the present time are not less important than those that faced it a hundred years ago. The future...
Spirituality of abstaining drug users
Liďák, Jan ; Vacek, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Zachová, Kateřina (referee)
The thesis deals with relationship between spirituality and abstaining drug users, focusing mainly on the level of emotional experience. Lot of this work is based mainly on authors Vojtíšek and Říčan as I try to determine the term spirituality compared to terms resembling it such as religiosity and religion. In addition to this I am drawing from research studying relationship of spirituality, health, and addiction. As a background I am using the bio-psycho-social-spiritual model of addiction and assumption that spirituality was during the time, person used drugs, suppressed and suffering. We can see this assumption in many theories by Czech and foreign authors too. My main aim is to understand the experience of spirituality of drug ex-users given their drug career, recovery, and abstinence. Research questions are aiming at experiencing spirituality at a time most of the research participants are in Follow-up treatment programme and how were they experiencing spirituality during rehab and during the times they were still using drugs and going through addiction. What kind of meaning spirituality has in clients' life without drugs in one of the main focuses of this work. The data were conducted through qualitative research using a semi-structured interview with five clients of Follow-up centers and...

Mádr, Marián ; Žalmanová, Petra (referee) ; Šindlar, Jiljí (advisor)
The subject of the diploma thesis is the design of a new Roman Catholic church with conveniences, which will be located in the city of Brno - Líšeň, in the northwestern part of the cadastral area Líšeň, on a sloping plot, between Horníkova and Molákova streets, near the youth center ("Saleska"). The church will serve the Roman Catholic Congregation of the Selesians, who are attended to the education and work with children and youth. The church will be dedicated to the third Divine Person of the Holy Spirit. The main aim of the church is to be a place of meeting in the community of believers, but also a quiet and peaceful place to meet God. The proposal will also consider the construction of a vicarage, which should be a meeting place for parishioners at various events with the possibility of accommodating the Salesians. The idea is proceeded on the main symbols of the Salesians. The design is based on the idea of a home, a circle, which symbolizes the family atmosphere. It is derived from three pillars. The sense, the religion and the kindness, standing on a triangular background that serve as points to create a community bounded by circles. This fellowship is defined by three circular segments in the form of reinforced concrete framework structures, each of them represents one of the divine persons of the Holy Trinity. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. The gaps among the structures serve for such an illumination, which does not distract the attention from the church to the outside environment and preserves the peace and the spirituality in the interior.
