Martyria as One of the Christian Aspects of the Helping Worker
The paper deals with the topic of martyria as one of the Christian aspects of the helping wor- ker. In the f rst part, the paper focuses on def ning the term ‘Christian helping worker’ and answering the question of whether that label signif es a Christian worker or a worker acting in a Christian way. In the second part, the paper discusses the Christian helping worker’s task to be God’s witness – martyr – to other people. It shows three aspects of such witness: the helping worker as a martyr of God’s kenosis, as a martyr of God’s con-solatio, and finally as a martyr of God’s transformative power in the human being.
