An attempt was made to blow up the church of the Apostle Paul, located near the railway station Larissa in Athens, Greece. The explosion took place half an hour after midnight on January 1, 2022, reports arxon.gr.

The source of the detonation was an improvised device that ignited 10 gas cylinders installed near the church (according to other sources: cans of gasoline – ed.). Insignificant material damage is reported – as a result of the explosion, the steps of the church were burnt.

The police are investigating to find and arrest the perpetrators.

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.
