Be the Bee – Time to Repent

We've all stumbled during Lent. St. Mary of Egypt shows us that it's not too late to get back up again.

Can you believe we only have about a week left of the Great Lent?
Be the Bee – Time to Repent

No one is perfect. These past few weeks we’ve all stumbled, we’ve all fasted less then we should, said things we shouldn’t have said and done things we shouldn’t have done. And instead of allowing us to move into Holy Week discouraged or demoralized, the Church offers us hope in a person of St. Mary of Egypt.

…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 -,, and 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.
