October 24, 2014. The “Christian International Solidarity” human rights organization has declared November 16 the Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church.
Sedmitsa.ru has reported that a number of events will take place in different parishes in Great Britain and other countries for several days in honor of this commemoration.
Activists of the CIS are using the help of social networks to unite Christians to pray together on November 16.
Over 100,000,000 Christians are persecuted for their faith every year. 75% of the world’s population lives in countries with either a high or a very high level of discrimination and violence towards religious beliefs. Every year a large number of crimes against believers are reported in 185 countries; and crimes against Christians occur in 145 countries.
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 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.
