Your Beatitude, beloved brother in the Lord and concelebrant at God’s Altar:

I wholeheartedly greet you with an anniversary of your election as Patriarch and ascension to the ancient see of St. Mark, Apostle and Evangelist.

Under the omophorion of Your Beatitude the Church of Alexandria continues her ‘ministering the Gospel of God’ (Rom 15:16) on the African continent. You have contributed to the development of Christian mission in the modern world and zealously cared for the strengthening of Orthodox unity and thus have gained sincere love of clergy and laity entrusted to You and profound respect of Your fellow Primates.

I have warm recollections of our recent meeting in Moscow and offer zealous prayers to the Merciful Lord for granting spiritual and physical strength to Your Beatitude and for His abundant help in Your primatial ministry.

With brotherly love in Jesus Christ,

+ KIRILL

Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia

…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.
