His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia congratulated His Beatitude Patriarch John X of Antioch and All the East on the anniversary of his enthronement.

Your Beatitude,

beloved brother in the Lord and Concelebrant:

I wholeheartedly congratulate You on the day of your enthronement.

Standing at the helm of the Holy Church of Antioch under difficult circumstances ‘in a great trial of affliction’ (2 Cor 8:2) You have been doing the courageous and selfless responsible ‘work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ’ (Eph 4:12). I assure You that the Russian Orthodox Church will always support people of the same faith in keeping with the Apostle’s words ‘whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it’ (1 Cor 12:26).

I prayerfully wish Your Beatitude the inexhaustible God’s help in Your primatial ministry, spiritual and physical health and many blessings from ‘the Lord, holy and true’ (Rev 6:10).

With brotherly love in the Lord,

+ Kirill

Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia

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.
