The head of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church made a public address to the people for the new year 2021.

“With gratitude to God and with new hope for Bulgaria and for the whole world we cross the threshold of 2021.

“We hope and pray that the past 2020, which was a year of the unprecedented difficulties because of the pandemic caused by the new unknown virus, made us wiser,” said Patriarch Neofit as reported by novinite.com.

In his address, Patriarch Neofit of Bulgaria also said that the test of the pandemic hopefully would make us even more motivated to fight together for the gift of life — for God’s earthly life, in anticipation and preparation for eternity, because God wants us to have life and have it “in abundance” (John 10:10).

“May the grace and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the communion in the Holy Spirit be with all of us! For many and blessed years!”, Patriarch Neofit concluded.

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.
