Be the Bee – Women in the Church

She, a woman, might have been the first person in history to proclaim the Gospel. To this day we still call women like St. Mary Magdalene or St. Photini Equals to the Apostles.

The Church sometimes feel like a man’s world, doesn’t it? When we think of leaders of the Church, our minds tend to first go to clergy: to bishops, presbyters, deacons. It’s not surprising since the clergy lead us when we come together for worship. And God is giving the Church wonderful ordained leaders, who’ve done wonderful things for the faith. But we shouldn’t forget, from the very beginning women have been among the most important saints and leaders in the Church!

…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.
