A Syrian Orthodox cleric who was wounded by gunfire in Aleppo on November 6 is expected to make a full recovery.
Msgr. Raban Boutros Kassis, the Syrian Orthodox patriarchal vicar for Aleppo, Syria, was hit twice in the shoulder by rifle fire as he drove toward his residence in Aleppo. Surgery to remove the bullets was successful.
“I thank God who protected and kept me alive,” the Orthodox cleric said to the Fides news service. “I thank God because in this condition and in this experience I can share the cross that so many people today suffer in Syria, especially in Aleppo.”
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.
