Metropolitan Anthony of Borispol and Brovary: It Could Be Called an Anti-War Synod

“You could say that it was an anti-war synod. The accepted appeals are permeated with the call to cease fraternal bloodshed in the country’s East. We heard reports of bishops who carry out their obedience in the diocesan areas that have become flashpoints: in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions.

“The reports related numerous instances of death and evidence of the dire socio-economic situation of many districts, which are on the brink of a humanitarian catastrophe. It was necessary not only to respond to these reports, but also to warn all our Church’s people who worry about the tragedy in the East.

“We appealed to the President to do everything in his power to stop the bloodshed. This is important. Everything else can and should be negotiated and discussed, but all problems can be solved peacefully. Now the main thing is for people not to die. This is the position of the Orthodox Church in Ukraine. This position, I think, is clear to any Christian”.

…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.
