BELGRADE — The head of the Serbian Orthodox monastery of Hilandar in Mt. Athos, Greece, has sent a letter of support to President Tomislav Nikolić.

In the letter, Archimandrite Metodije writes that the monastery supports the president’s efforts to protect the Serbian national interests, and especially for creating a platform for the resumption of the talks between Belgrade and Priština and work to make sure that most of the Serbian public was behind it.

The archimandrite sent a message of peace, love and need for unity within the Serbian people in trying times, the president’s press service stated.

Nikolić visited Hilandar during his recent trip to Greece.

The Serbian delegation met with Metodije and other members of the monastery’s community, emphasizing particularly assistance from the government in rebuilding the monastery damaged in a fire several 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 - 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.
