On February 15, 2018, the Holy Synod of the Romanian Patriarchate resolved that the Blessed Matrona of Moscow be included in the Calendar of the Romanian Orthodox Church for veneration.

With a blessing of His Holiness Daniel, Patriarch of Romania, the Institute of Orthodox Mission in Bucharest had translated to Romanian and published the divine services and akathistos devoted to the saint. His Beatitude Daniel sent several copies of the Romanian version to His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia with a letter informing him about the glorification of the Blessed Matrona in Romania.

During his visit to Moscow for the centenary of the restoration of Patriarchate in the Russian Orthodox Church on December 4, 2017, Patriarch Daniel celebrated the Divine Liturgy at the Convent of the Protecting Veil of the Mother of God in Moscow in which the holy relics of the Blessed Matrona lie.

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.
