Bulgaria PM to attend celebration of Dormition of the Mother of God feast

The Prime Minister will be present at a solemn mass, which the His Holiness Patriarch Neofit will serve at the monastery.
There will be later a solemn procession carrying the wonderworking icon depicting Bogorodica Trojeručica with “three“ hands.
The tradition says the icon was painted by or for Saint John of Damascus, who is said to have had one of his hands restored after it was cut off and he prayed in front of an icon of Saint Mary.

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.
