Over 1.75 million people go on pilgrimage to St. Nicholas relics in Moscow

A record number of believers, some 64,000, visited the cathedral on July 10. From 18,000 to 60,000 people have visited the relics daily in the Christ the Savior Cathedral since May 22.

On Tuesday, people stood in line to bow to the relics for 11 hours, which was a record waiting time. This may be due to the fact that the holy relics will leave Moscow on July 13 for St. Petersburg, where they will stay for two weeks.

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 dollars a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 dollars a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
