His Holiness Patriarch Kirill greets Primate of Georgian Orthodox Church with his name day

Your Holiness and Beatitude, Beloved in the Lord Brother and Concelebrant,

Please accept my cordial greetings with your Name Day.

Deriving inspiration from the life and deeds of the Holy Prophet Elijah, you carry your Primatial cross with humility and spiritual wisdom, taking unceasing care of your clergy and flock and making much effort thatthe word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified among your people (2 Th. 3:1).

May the All-Generous Lord, through the prayers of your heavenly patron, grant you physical and spiritual strength and His all-abundant help in your lofty Patriarchal ministry.

With fraternal love in Christ,


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.
