Making Easter cakes

admin | 21 April 2011

Every year during the Holy week matushka Galina Sokolova makes many easter cakes – for her big family – 9 children, 4 of them already have their own families, and for friends and members of the parish.

Many orthodox christians know the Sokolov family very well. Father Theodor Sokolov was a famous priest, loving father, his church had a very big parish and he helped the poor, the imprisoned, and all those who needed help and attention. He died 11 years ago in a car crash leaving a big parish and his big family – his youngest daughter was only 2 months at that time.

Matushka Galina has preserved in the family the atmosphere of “Father will be home soon”. Those who visit her can’t help noticing such love and such memory.

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.
