Moscow, July 6, Interfax - The total number of believers who came to bow to the relics of St. Nicholas, brought from Italy, has reached 1.5 million, according to the headquarters in charge of organizing pilgrimage to the holy relics.
Just on July 5, over 50,000 people came to the holy relics.
As of mid Thursday, the waiting time in line to view the holy relics is ten hours.
The relics of Nicholas the Wonderworker, which have left the city of Bari for the first time in 930 years, have been in the Cathedral of Christ the Savior for 45 days now. They will leave for St. Petersburg on July 13.
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.
