In his doubts and searching on his way to Christ Nicodemus needed loneliness, silence and less daylight not to be seen. We are in the same situation sometimes. There is a possibility to come to Zelena hora every month and find the church open for silent meditation, contemplation, prayer or silent spiritual talk. A priest is available as well as deacons. You can ask for confession, talk, and advice, share your pains and troubles or ask for prayer and blessing. Or it is possible to remain silent and enjoy the healing silence close to God.
