NEW YORK – Santiago Calatrava, one of the world’s leading architects, is reportedly the leading candidate to be the design architect for the new Church of St. Nicholas at Ground Zero. The renowned architect from Spain is already involved at the World Trade Center site as the designer of the iconic but controversial PATH transportation terminal. He is known to the Hellenic World through the magnificent roof he created for the 2004 Greek Olympics Stadium in Athens that is both visually striking and necessary to shade the spectators from the brutal summer sun. The committee headed by architect Nicholas Koutsomitis isn’t commenting on the competitive bidding for the commission to build what could become one of the most famous Orthodox houses of worship in the world.

…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.
