A Bust to Patriarch Alexy II to be Unveiled in Tallinn

admin | 23 August 2012

Building a monument to the late Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Alexy II in Tallinn would be the proper thing to do to acknowledge his contribution to the history of the Russian Orthodox Church in Estonia, Metropolitan of Tallinn and All Estonia Cornelius told the media.

Alexy II was born in Tallinn where in 1961 he was chosen to be the Orthodox Church Bishop of Tallinn and Estonia.

Patriarch Alexy II played a central part in the 2007 reunion of the branches of the Russian Church abroad and at home.

A bust to Alexy II will be unveiled in front of an Orthodox church which is currently under construction in Tallinn.

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 euros 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 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
