Memorial liturgies were held on November 15 in all Bulgarian Orthodox churches for the victims of the series of terrorist attacks in Paris two days earlier.

Bulgarian Orthodox Church head Patriarch Neofit prayed for the peace and repose of the souls of those killed in the terrorist attacks, and prayed for peace in the world.

Dozens of people came to light candles and express sympathy with the French people, Bulgarian National Television said.

The memorial liturgies for the dead in Paris were added to scheduled services on November 15 as Bulgaria remembered the victims of road accidents, with the main service to be held in Sofia’s landmark Alexander Nevsky cathedral.

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.
