Assembly of Orthodox Bishops in Iberian Peninsula meets for regular session

The meeting was held at the church of St. Mary Magdalene Equal-to-the-Apostles and presided over by Metropolitan Polycarpos of Spain and Portugal (Patriarchate of Constantinople). Among the attendees was also Bishop Timotej of Spain and Portugal (Romanian Patriarchate).

The assembly discussed a wide range of issues concerning the legal registration of the Assembly, translation of liturgical texts, state registration of church marriages and establishment of the feast of the Synaxis of Spanish Saints for unified veneration by all the Local Orthodox Churches represented in the Assembly, the diocese of Korsun website reports.

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 -,, and 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.
