On March 19, 2013, Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk, head of the Moscow Patriarchate’s department for external church relations, who came to Italy for the enthronement of Pope Francis of Rome, paid a visit to the Rome representation of the Community of St. Egidio to meet there with the president of the Pontifical Council for the Family, Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia.

A dinner was given in honour of the high guest, during which the two hierarchs had a talk. They discussed matters of mutual concern including the modern understanding of the institution of family in Europe and the world and the need to defend traditional family values in face of the growing threat of their devaluation.

…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.
