Condolences of His Holiness Patriarch Kirill over the death of passengers and crew of the plane crashed in the south of France

To: His Royal Majesty King Felipe VI of Spain

Your Majesty,

Please accept my profound condolences on the tragedy that has befallen your country, the crash of an airliner carrying not only adult passengers and a crew but also children.

In these sad days I grieve together with all the Spanish people who have suffered an irretrievable loss. I lift up prayers to the Lord for the consolation of those who have lost their relatives and loved ones in the plane crash.

I wish your Royal Majesty and the Spanish people strength and fortitude in overcoming so terrible an ordeal.

With profound condolences,

+ KIRILL

Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia

 

 

To: Her Excellency Ms. Angela Merkel

Federal Chancellor of Germany

Your Excellency,

I was grieved to learn about the crash of the Germanwings plane in the Alps. The tragedy claimed the lives of its crew and passengers, including children, the majority of whom were citizens of the Federal Republic of Germany. Please accept my sincere condolences.

I am fervently praying to the All-Merciful Lord, asking Him to grant to relatives and friends of those who died consolation and strength in enduring this bereavement.

In these days of sorrow I wish Your Excellency and all German people courage and spiritual fortitude.

With deep condolences,

+ KIRILL

Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia

Since you are here…

…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 euros 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 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.

Dear Friends,

Our website exists owing to your generous assistance, thanks to the funds donated by our beloved readers.

Please assist us in the continuation of our work.
