According to the newspaper Espresso, everything started on the afternoon of  July 8 when he felt sick and had intense pains in the urinary system while he was on holiday with his family in Porto Cheli, in the Peloponnese.

His family is constantly by his side. The former king is being hospitalized at the Bioclinic Athens. His health condition is already burdened, as in May 2009 he underwent a double surgery in London for calcified aortic valve replacement.

According to information, the doctors at the Bioclinic Athens convened an emergency council to be fully informed of his condition and medical history, and communicated with his doctors at the London clinic where his surgery took place years ago.

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.
