• What is the Slovak Church like?
  • What leads to faith and what leads to its loss?
  • What if faith is (not) right?

Two offspring of the Salesians in Bratislava: according to one, Slovak Catholicism is doing great, the other denies it and harshly criticizes the Church from liberal-progressive points of view. What leads to a deepening of faith and what to its loss? We are in for an honest, open and slightly polemical conversation about life, faith, Church and society.
