His Holiness Irenaeus, Patriarch of Serbia, has sent to His Holiness Kirill, Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia, a letter expressing gratitude to the Primate and faithful of the Russian Orthodox Church for the support and aid raised and sent to the Serbian Orthodox Church for victims of the disastrous flood that hit Western Balkans in May 2014.

He stated in his letter that “the prayerful support of Your Holiness and your holy blessings sent to all the victims and those who suffered a serious damage during the flood in spring and the great donation of over 27 million roubles are certainly a precious manifestation of exceptional concern”.

“The duty of Our Humbleness”, Patriarch Irenaeus writes, “is to express unspeakable enormous gratitude to your brotherly kindness and to the Orthodox people of Russia for the sincere love they have and invariably show for their blood brothers in faith – the Serbs and our Holy Church”.

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.
