On 6 October 2013, His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia met with His Holiness Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople in Podgorica. The Primates have arrived in Montenegro to participate in the blessing of the Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ in Podgorica.

His Holiness Kirill and His Holiness Bartholomew had a friendly and cordial talk during which they discussed issues of inter-Orthodox cooperation and bilateral relations between the two Patriarchates.

Taking part in the talk on behalf of the Russian Orthodox Church were Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk, chairman of the Moscow Patriarchate’s Department for External  Church Relations (DECR); archpriest Nikolai Balashov, DECR deputy chairman; archpriest Igor Yakimchuk, DECR secretary for inter-Orthodox relations; and on behalf of the Patriarchate of Constantinople Metropolitan Emmanuel of France; archimandrite Bartholomew (Samaras), secretary general of the Holy and Sacred Synod; and archdeacon Maxim (Vgenopoulos).

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.
