Pope prays for end of Kiev violence

admin | 27 January 2014

Pope Francis prayed Sunday for an end to violence in Kiev, calling for dialogue between the Ukraine government and opposition amid fears fierce protests could develop into a wider civil conflict.

“I hope for constructive dialogue between the institutions and civil society, and that – without recourse to violent action – the spirit of peace and the search for common good may prevail in the hearts of all,” he told crowds gathered in St. Peter’s Square for the Angelus prayers.

“I am close in my prayers to Ukraine, in particular to those who have lost their lives, and their families,” the pontiff 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.
