I regard Jolana Poláková´s reflections as valuable since they evoke the destitution of one whole epoch in an atmospheric fashion. I am fascinated by her texts because they have succeeded in spelling out – in a phenomenological description – relationship to God through itself alone, as an action from freedom to freedom, from face to face.
