“Relations between the two churches are developing well. It should be emphasized that the Catholic world treats the Orthodox Church with great kindness and looks at it with hope,” Yurkovich told RIA Novosti in an interview.
The ambassador also added that good relations with Russia were always important to the Vatican, as they are based on cooperation in many spheres, including protecting traditional values in society.
According to Yurkovich, the Vatican allocated many Catholic buildings to the Orthodox community in Western Europe in order to overcome differences between religions.
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.
