“Prints can be colored or monochrome, it is important that such covers will be “speaking” as many young people use smartphones or strive to buy them as a convenient gadget for communication, work and entertainment, and words from the Gospels or thematic drawings on the cover will be everyday companions of youth,” the diocesan press service reports.

According to initiators of the project, such production won’t cost much, so the covers and cases will not be expensive.

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 -,, and 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.
