THE ROMAN Catholic Church commemorated the patron saint of Slovakia, Virgin Mary of Seven Sorrows on September 15. In Slovakia, this is one of the largest Roman Catholic holidays.

The basilica in Šaštín in western Slovakia became the national shrine of Virgin Mary, hosting a national pilgrimage – the biggest in Slovakia – on September 13-16 of this year.

This year, “media” was the main topic of the pilgrimage. During a discussion about media, Bratislava Archbishop Stanislav Zvolenský recommended that young people not watch television for more than two hours per day. He warned that, when watching TV, people are becoming passive spectators and their individual abilities are not developed.

Using athletes as examples, he said they will not achieve results by only watching sports on TV but, rather, by their own efforts and training.
