Accompanying patients in hospitals
Zemanová, Radka ; Zimmermannová, Marie (advisor) ; Prokeš, Josef (referee)
The thesis "Counselling the Sick in Hospital" deals with the issue of hospital chaplaincy in the Czech Republic. The theoretical part defines key terms (illness, accompaniment, hospital chaplain), describes the challenges of the sick, addresses the question of their value and the meaning of life during illness, and describes the stages of coping with illness. The theological excursion deals with love from a biblical perspective and concludes with a chapter on the meaning of suffering. The empirical part consists of an analysis of articles on hospital chaplaincy, primarily interviews with chaplains. The topics from the interviews were sorted by frequency into chapters (introducing the service, prejudices, death, covid, etc.), in which chaplains express their opinions from various perspectives, which complement each other, and from which a media image of chaplaincy in the Czech Republic can be assembled. The results of their testimonies are summarized in the conclusion of the thesis.

The Dying Church, Josef Prokeš Abstract The Dying Church Searching for the interpretative key to the position of Christianity in postmodern Europe The main subject of this thesis concerns the search for the way in which the Church in the Czech Republic should live in order to fulfil its mission, that is to bear witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Czech theologian and Franciscan Zdeněk Bonaventura Bouše was chosen as the starting point, especially his texts on the Church. His texts are read according to the interpretive key, which was chosen to be the verse in the Gospel of John where Jesus declares that he is the Way, the Truth and the Life. In the first chapter, this scripture (John 14:6) is discussed and applied to the Church. This leads to a characterization of the Church that is on the way, striving for truthfulness and is full of real life. It is according to this key that Bouché's texts are read and interpreted in the second chapter. The main part of the work is the chapter three. Here the three dimensions of the Church (on the way, striving for truthfulness and full of life) are discussed in specific terms in relation to the situation of the Church in the Czech Republic. Keywords The Church, searching for the way, truthfulness, life, form of living, form of the Church, Practical theology
Synodality - how walk together in daily life of the czech church?
Jirsa, Matěj ; Prokeš, Josef (advisor) ; Tichý, Radek (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to answer the question of 'how the Czech Church in its everyday life should respond to the call on synodality, which Pope Francis asks of the Church'. More specifically, the thesis deals with the so-called synodal lifestyle. It aims to define this style, to theologically ground it and to formulate its basic building blocks. On the basis of qualitative research, it then wants to provide impulses for pastoral theology to help this style take root in the life of the Czech Church where it is needed. The thesis is divided into five chapters. The first chapter introduces the subjects of the theological debate on synodality, with an emphasis on recent Church documents and the teachings of Pope Francis. The second chapter introduces the main theological premises underlying the building blocks of the synodal lifestyle, which will later be presented in chapter three. Chapter four focuses on the qualitative research conducted in the form of a reflection on home spiritual retreat as presented and analysed. The highlight of the thesis is chapter five, in which, impulses for pastoral theology are formulated by synthesizing the analysis of the qualitative research and the basic building blocks of synodality.
