Pray for Slovakia

Just over 60% of Slovaks are Catholic and about 6% are Lutheran. In reality, the country—especially young people and city dwellers—are quite secular. Slovaks work hard, value family, love nature and desire material goods, all of which tends to distract from spiritual things. It’s a spiritual landscape much like that of North America. Pray for Slovaks as you would for your own neighbors.

Pray for Slovakia

Velvet divorce

Slovakia has two Independence Days, sort of. On this date in 1990, in the immediate aftermath of communism, Slovakia was declared a sovereign republic. Thus, many consider July 17 Slovak Independence Day. On Jan. 1, 1993, Slovakia and the Czech Republic peacefully separated into two countries, often called the “velvet divorce.” Happy 28th (or 25th) birthday, Slovakia!
