Metropolitan Hilarion’s condolences to Premier of the state council of the People’s Republic of China over the tragedy in Kunshan

Your Excellency,

I have been grieved to learn about the explosion at a factory in Kunshan which has resulted in numerous victims. I deeply sympathize with all the people of China, especially those who have been personally affected by the tragedy.

I am confident that the Government of the People’s Republic of China will not leave the victims without care and attention. I hope that the consequences of the disaster will be soon overcome.

I am mentally with those who are in hospitals in these hours and pray for the consolation of all those who have lost their relatives and friends.

With heartfelt condolences,

Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk

Chairman of the Department for External Church Relations

Moscow Patriarchat

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.
