EThe Orthodox Church has voiced support for the role played by the Armed Forces on the current developments in Egypt.

The Church hailed remarks by Defense Minister Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, in which he vowed to intervene to prevent Egypt from slipping into a dark tunnel of conflict, sedition and infighting, said a statement released by the papal office on Monday 24/6/2013.

The Orthodox Church also voiced confidence in the army’s ability to shoulder these grave responsibilities in this critical stage, the statement said.

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.
