Patriarch Daniel of Romania expresses compassion and solidarity with the Belgian people

Natalya Mihailova | 23 March 2016

We have learned with sorrow and worry about the terrorist attack that took place in Brussels Tuesday morning, 22 March 2016, after which at least 34 persons have been killed and 136 injured.

In these difficult moments for the Belgian people, we pray for the rest of the souls of the deceased, for the consolation of the bereaved families, and for the recovery of the injured.

We express our solidarity with the Belgian people passing through distress, as well as our concern for the escalation of terrorist attacks in Europe.

We pray God for the peace, the understanding and the good coexistence between people of different nationalities, cultures and religious beliefs.

…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 -,, and Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros 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 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
