Supreme Patriarch and Catholicos Karekin Ii of all Armenians’ condolences to the Primate of the Russian Orthodox Church over the death of people in air crash in Egypt

Your Holiness, Beloved Brother in Christ:

With deep sorrow we have learnt about the crash of a passenger aircraft of the Russian company ‘Kogalymavia’, which flew from Sharm el-Sheikh to St. Petersburg, and the death of its passengers and crew.

Sharing the pain of this irreplaceable loss, we express to Your Holiness and the Russian people our sincere condolences from the First Holy Throne of Echmiadzin on behalf of the Supreme Church Council and the faithful of the Armenian Apostolic Church.

We pray to the Almighty that through the Holy Spirit He may give consolation to the families of the air crash victims and to all the Russian people. And may the souls of the dead find rest by God’s mercy in the heavenly hights.

May our Lord Jesus Christ give you spiritual strength and physical energy to overcome this trial so difficult in the life of your flock.

With grief,

Karekin II

Supreme Patriarch and Catholicos of All Armenians

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.
