On the basis of the Annual program of the cooperation of the Committee for religious education of the Archdiocese of Belgrade-Karlovci and the Military Academy, also this year a traditional audience was organized for officers and cadets of the Military Academy on the occasion of the feast of Saint Simeon the Myrrh-Gusher.

About fifty students and their officers attended the Vesper service at the Cathedral church. Following the Holy Liturgy, Bishop Atanasije addressed them expressing his great delight since the future Serbian officers have as their tradition visiting the seat of the Serbian Orthodox Church on the feast of Saint Simeon the Myrrh-Gusher.
Then an audience with His Holiness Irinej, Serbian Patriarch was appropriated at the Serbian Patriarchate.

On this occasion the guests delivered a present to His Holiness, and the Patriarch distributed small icons of Miraculous Theotokos of Pec with the blessing.
The Serbian military singing group The Forty Martyrs of Sebaste from the Military high school sang responses during the audience.

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.
