According to the RIA News agency, Metropolitan Vladimir spoke about this during a major campaign for family values.

The campaign was designed to demonstrate “the defense of holy values,” and its participants responded negatively to a LGBT parade that had taken place the week before.

“I encourage Christians to give birth to as many children as possible. I will personally baptize the fourth and following children in a family at the Cathedral Church. God willing, I will also perform their marriages, when the time comes,” said Metropolitan Vladimir of Chisinau and All Moldova.

Likewise, Patriarch–Catholicos Ilia II of All Georgia personally baptizes every third and following child in a family. The Patriarch already has around 7,000 godchildren.

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.
