Patriarch Kirill asks president of Israel to involve religious leaders in settlement of Middle Eastern problem more actively

“Progress in the peaceful settlement of the Middle Eastern problem is very important to us, specifically, progress in the relations between Israel and Palestine. Maybe we should think about broader involvement in this dialogue of religious leaders, too,” the patriarch said in Moscow on Thursday during a meeting with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin.

He said the religious factor is not directly connected to terrorism, “but the presence of different religions cannot be ignored.”

“Maybe it would make sense to create some platform for interreligious dialogue relating to Middle Eastern settlement and the achievement of peace in the Holy Land,” the patriarch said.

…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.
