God is truth, and whoever seeks the truth is seeking God, whether it is clear to him/her or not
„Gott ist die Wahrheit. Wer die Wahrheit sucht, der sucht Gott, ob es ihm klar ist oder nicht.“ „Bóg jest prawdą. Kto szuka prawdy, ten szuka Boga, czy to jest dla niego jasne, czy też nie." "God is truth, and whoever seeks the truth is seeking God, whether it is clear to him/her or not." Edith Stein, O.C.D.: Brief / List / Letter  3/23/1938 an / do / to s. Adelgundis Jaegerschmid

Once God was sought in this place - here today, people are looking for contact with God, whom they already know
Until the first half of 9th century Sleza played a role of the pagan cult centre of the Slezans tribe despite the fact that from the times of Mieszko I (acceptance of Christianity by Slavic tribes) Christianity has been developing. It was a normal phenomenon in Silesia in the 10th century and at the beginning of the 11th century that pagan and Christian religions coexisted. Not till the times of Kazimierz the Restorer (first half of the 11th century) an attempt to eliminate "The capital of paganism" - the cult centre on Sleza was made. Despite all the activities carried out to achieve this goal, Sleza continued to be a sanctity and still focused elements of the ancient faith. The most significant testimony of this are the words of Thietmar from Merseburg, bishop and chronicler, who says about Sleza: "This mountain was worshipped by all the townsmen for the reason of its enormity and its destiny as accursed pagan rituals were carried out over there". The relics of pagan worships in the region of Sleza mountain until the half of 19th century were fires during the St. John's night considered immoral and prohibited by the German colonial authorities. In the 21st century observers of the ancient tradition are freed from guilt by bells of the sanctuary of Sancta Mater Boni Consilii et Sapientiae Cordis (Our Lady of Good Counsel and Wisdom of the Heart Slezan Sanctuary) in Sulistrowiczki located in the saddle between Sleza and Radunia. The church bells magnify eternal magic of Sleza Mountain, Mt Olympus of the Middle Europe. The founder of the sancturary, Fr prelate dr Ryszard Staszak referred to the glorious pagan pre-history and history of the Sleza Massif: "Once God was sought in this place - here today, people are looking for contact with God, whom they already know".

Fr prof. dr Czeslaw Bartnik wrote: "Sensitivity to transcendent values and detachment proper to the sacrum, by individuals and whole social groups, best expresses their religiosity. In the Polish society this religiosity was Christian for over a thousand years, but it also contains many elements of ancient Slavic culture. Throughout subsequent epochs the Christian understanding of God, forms of worship, sacraments, structures of the church and saints, as well as norms of life, pervaded the culture of inhabitants of the Polish Crown, and subsequently of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and of the Second Polish Republic. Christianity, in constant touch with the culture of Slavs living in the area between the Oder and the Dnieper and between the Baltic Sea and the Carpathians, enriched it with something new that became a principle of growth without destroying what was precious and proper." in BASIC ELEMENTS OF POLISH RELIGIOSITY by Fr prof. dr Czeslaw Bartnik  a professor at the Catholic University of Lublin  full text here.
