This article attempts to demonstrate the relationships between a new political theology developing in the 20th century in Western Europe and the ethical-social thought of J. Tischner. The starting point of both concepts is the non-culpable suffering of man. The article presents countermeasures proposed by J. Tischner against non-culpable suffering, i.e. mercy, solidarity and Christian hope. Tischner’s philosophy is far from utopian dreams of the complete elimination of suffering, which is simply impossible here on earth. The philosopher from Krakow proposes, however, measures which allow one to endure difficult situations with dignity. Tischner himself extracts from the Gospel the values which Christianity continually offers to an ever more ruthless, indifferent and cold world.
