Bulgarian Patriarch meets with Turkish Ambassador to Bulgaria

The meeting was held in a formal and friendly way.

The condition of the properties of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church on the territory of Turkey, the problems related to the flow of Syrian refugees, the condition of the Turkish minority in Bulgaria and of the Bulgarian minority in Turkey were discussed and the Patriarch and the Ambassador expressed their desire to aid cooperation and peace in the relations between the two peoples as well as mutual respect for the religions of the citizens of Bulgaria and Turkey.

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.
