Greeks Recognized as the Most Religious People in the European Union

The results of the survey were published in a Guide to Mount Athos with reference to the newspaper «ΕλεύθεροςΤύπος».

75% of Greeks call themselves religious, and 46.2% said that they pray regularly. The corresponding figures for Catholic and especially Protestant countries are much lower. In countries with a predominance of citizens who are Catholic, 25.4% pray regularly, while in countries with Protestant citizens, 17.9% of the population pray regularly.

In Greece, 26% attend church at least once a week; in Catholic countries, 25.6%; and in countries dominated by Protestants, 7.7%.

The highest percentage of people attending church services is in Ireland (53.8%) and Poland (56.7%).

Only 1.7% of Greeks say that they are “irreligious” and only 4.1% of the people admitted that they do not pray or go to church at all.

…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.
