The Church is in a position to offer its human face to the alienated world. Christianity with a human face is the offer that Francis is working on.
Francis announced his visit to Slovakia less than three months before its beginning. After its confirmation, the most frequent journalistic question addressed to the church representatives was: “Why will the pope actually come to Slovakia and why does he intend to spend three days here?” The typical answer of the Slovak bishops was: "We don't know, Francis likes surprises."
In a small country on the border of Western and Eastern Europe, the majority of the population professes Catholicism. The communist past has been replaced by the relative prosperity of the European Union. However, despite its dominant position, the Catholic Church is in a long-term crisis.

Theological concept of dying Church.
After all those years of service I see my church as an institution that is difficult to reform. As an institution that expels those who are critical to its autocratic tendencies and to its lack of social relevance.
