Pope Francis has condemned those behind the brutal murder of Normandy priest Jacques Hamel yesterday.

The 86 year old who was brutally killed by Islamic terrorists whilst giving his morning sermon, has sent shockwaves throughout the world. According to reports the Pope has labelled the sickening attack as ‘absurd violence’.

A Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi told journalists that Pope Francis, who has been informed, and shares the pain and horror of this “absurd violence,” and condemns “all forms of hatred.”

The Vatican is particularly affected by the fact that the “horrific” violence occurred place in a church, a “sacred place in which the love of God is announced,” he added.

…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.
