Martyria as One of the Christian Aspects of the Helping Worker
Maryšková Jana
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.
