His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia expressed condolences to the President of Indonesia, Mr. Joko Widodo, over the death of people as the result of the earthquake on Lombok island.

His Excellency Mr. Joko Widodo

President of the Republic of Indonesia

Your Excellency, dear Mr. President,

I was deeply grieved to learn about the earthquake that had hit the island of Lombok on Sunday.

As the result of the tragedy, many people died and were injured; thousands lost their homes. I extend my sincere condolences to you and to the people of Indonesia.

May the Merciful God grant the soonest recovery to those injured, console those grieving and strengthen those who are now selflessly working to overcome the aftermaths of this terrible natural disaster.

Your faithfully,



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.
