The purpose of this paper is to describe the lifelong work of the Czech Dominican monk and theologian Silvestr Braito (1898–1962). Braito ascribed significant importance to ecclesiology as a prerequisite for effective pastoral work, which he understood as a process of ongoing intellectual education of the faithful as well as their spiritual formation. Ecclesiology underwent a dramatic development in the twentieth century, particularly in Germany and France. Braito, while avoiding the more controversial issues, followed this discussion and presented its main themes to the Czech speaking Christian public. He considered a deep knowledge of the Church indispensable for a sound spiritual life. In this context, a dynamic comprehension of the relation between God and the human person, which Braito liked to express as 'sonship of God', presents his distinctive contribution to a practical pastoral-oriented application of ecclesiology.
