Several months ago the same portal, with the reference to sources from Holy Mount Athos, was the first to publish the information on the impending canonization of elder Porphyrios the Kapsokalivite.

According to the latest reports from Holy Mount Athos, within the next few days Elder Paisios (Eznepidis) the Athonite will be canonized. Some time later the canonizations of elder Amphilochios (Makris) of Patmos, elder Sophrony (Sakharov) of Essex, and elder Ephraim of Katounakia will follow.

The canonization of elder Joseph the Hesychast, ascetic who is widely venerated in the Orthodox world, is not far off as well.

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.
