Introduction

 

Úvodní slovo arcibiskupa Dominika Duky  

Welcome to the website of the St. Vitus Cathedral, the first temple of our country, where for ages the hopes, fears and longings of past generations have been formed, where the ecclesiastic and the worldly power have been meeting and where various Czech princes, kings, emperors and archbishops repose. The Cathedral is a shrine and the resting place of the Godspell witnesses St. Vitus, St. Wenceslas, St. Adalbert, St. John Nepomucene and many more saints who can show us a different and liberating view of our today’s pleasures and pains. The Cathedral is also the national treasury which contains some of the most important symbols of Czech statehood, such as the Saint Wenceslas Crown or the Coronation Cross with relics of the passion of Christ. The St. Vitus, Wenceslas and Adalbert Cathedral offers a free space of quiet, concentration and orientation, a space that is very necessary today. It has grown out of the oldest layers of our country’s history, it is a sum of Christianity and the whole of our civilization and together with us it rises towards the heavenly Jerusalem. May it, as well as every catholic temple, be open for everybody.

Mons. Dominik Duka, the archbishop of Prague
