Shanghai, June 12, 2014. On June 9-11, 2014, with the blessing of His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia and on the Shanghai International Studies University’s invitation, executive secretary of the Patriarchal Council for Culture and Abbot-Superior of the Moscow Sretensky Stavropegic Monastery Archimandrite Tikhon (Shevkunov) visited Shanghai.
The university’s Russian language and literature department has launched an initiative to translate Archimandrite Tikhon’s book, Every day Saints and Other Stories, into Chinese.
Dean of the department professor Chan Zh Li and Archimandrite Tikhon have signed an agreement about translation and publication of the book. The university President professor Cao Deming, teachers, undergraduate and postgraduate students were present at the signing.
Also negotiations for cooperation between the Patriarchal Council for Culture and the Shanghai International Studies University were held.
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.
