Sister Małgorzata Chmielewska shared gave the listeners an insight into her everyday work. Help for the homeless and the sick opens up for other people - explains the "Bread and life" Community superior - When you live with poor people you see that the world is divided. This division is the Church's problem - adds Sistter Chmielewska.

The program director of the Republika Television emphasizes that emotions are now used as a weapon.  - The Church's biggest problem is the communication problem. How can we talk about the word in the culture that thrives upon images?  - Tomasz Terlikowski wonders.

The third speaker - Fr. Mirosław Tykfer who pointed out that whole Europe's culture is in crisis. The church is also a subject of transformation moderated by Pope Francis. - This is a kind of a positive crisis that we are not yet ready for.  Is this deconstruction not going too fast? - inquires Fr.  Tykfer. He pointed out to the institutionalization may seem to be the reason for the Church crisis. - The structure, laws and order have become too rigid, they are like a glass sphere - says Fr.  Tykfer.
