Moscow, August 24, Interfax - Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia has congratulated Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko on Independence Day.
In his address, which was published on the website of the Moscow Patriarchate on Monday, the patriarch pointed out the special role played by the Orthodox Church in the life of Ukraine and expressed hopes for “good interaction between public bodies and the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in the interests of the stability of the Ukrainian society.”
The patriarch said the church continues to call on people who have different views and aspirations “to accord mutual forgiveness and joint work for the good of the common motherland.”
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.
