The Circle. The church has a circular floor plan. The circle is an age-long symbol
of heaven and eternity (in contrast to the square, which refers to earth and transience).
The heaven is reflected back in the colourful annular window that embraces the church
just below the roof. It might be said that the circle is floating above Lesná or, on
a figurative, transcendental level, that the heaven is floating above Lesná.
There are several reasons why we chose a circular shape for the church. The circle is
the shape of fullness, it is the full stop in the area of the housing estate and its
spiritual focal point that should serve as a place where people can break out of the daily
hustle, rest for a while, or recollect themselves. The circle is also very close
to the contemporary perception of the liturgy in the church that represents the community of
the Apostles and Jesus around the table during the Last Supper.
The tabernacle is located in a tall apse illuminated from above that is situated on the
left side of the church. The church wall is torn by a triangular opening at this point,
which serves as a reference to the tear in the Jerusalem temple curtain.
