The Bulgarian Orthodox Church has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, says the official website of its Holy Synod.

This year Bulgaria marked 70 years since the rescue of the Bulgarian Jews during World War II. The National Assembly in 1943 decided to impose a ban on their deportation, despite being pressured by Nazi Germany. At the time it was the Сhurch that raised its voice in defense of the Jews.

The initiative to nominate the Bulgarian Church for the Nobel Peace Prize belongs to PACE honorary member Lychezar Toshev.

The laureate will be announced in October this year in Oslo, Norway.

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.
