The Vigil service began at 20:00 on Saturday and ended on Sunday morning. After the Divine Liturgy, the supplicatory Canon to the Mother of God was read and a Cross procession with the “Kykkos” wonder-working Icon of the All-Holy Theotokos took place, reports

After the prayer for salvation of Cyprus, his Grace Archbishop Chrysostomos gave a sermon in which he stressed that those who encroached on economic and national sovereignty of Cyprus would collapse. According to Archbishop Chrysostomos, “The Church of Cyprus will be together with people during these difficult hours” and will do its best so that no one who has lost his or her job might be hungry or in need.

“Europeans are mistaken if they think they can take property from ordinary people for nothing,” said Archbishop.

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.
