On Tuesday, October 21, 2014, the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Toronto held a conference on the Ecumenical Patriarchate entitled Reflecting on the Past; Looking toward the Future. The conference was opened by His Eminence Metropolitan Sotirios of Toronto, followed by two personal Video Messages by His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew (in Greek and in English). The presentations by various scholars and specialists covered the historical and ecclesiastical role of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, its missionary work and struggle for religious freedom, as well as the persistent efforts of its Archons of the Order of St. Andrew to serve the needs and promote the rights of Orthodox Christians throughout the world.

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.
