On behalf of the Holy Synod of Bishops, His Beatitude, Metropolitan Tikhon has called upon the faithful of the Orthodox Church in America to pray for those adversely affected by what has been described as “the worst flooding in more than 100 years” across Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The record flooding came in the aftermath of Cyclone Tamara, which hit land on May 13.  [See complete story here.]

“In addition to offering their prayers for our suffering brothers and sisters, we hope that the faithful will consider reaching out with material assistance through International Orthodox Christian Charities, which is working with relief partners in the region to respond to the urgent needs of flood survivors,” said Metropolitan Tikhon. “IOCC has had staff in place in the region for over two decades and is well positioned to offer assistance to those who have been hit the hardest.”

As the situation worsened, a personal appeal for prayers and assistance from His Holiness, Patriarch Irinej, was issued, together with a similar appeal from the Serbian Orthodox Church’s Holy Assembly of Bishops.

…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.
