Meeting the Primate of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church were Metropolitan Antony of Borispol, chancellor of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church and rector of the Kiev Theological Schools, as well as staff members, professors and students of the Kiev Theological Academy and Seminary.

Metropolitan Antony greeted the guest, noting that the Kiev Theological Academy and the Bulgarian Orthodox Church have deep-rooted historical ties: many distinguished Bulgarian hierarchs and scholars studied at the Kiev Academy.

His Holiness Patriarch Neophyte was invited to the excursion around the Academy and its Church-Archeological Museum and then met with the faculty.

Patriarch Neophyte told those present at the meeting that he used to work as a rector of the Theological Academy and then as a dean of the Faculty of Theology, and noted the necessity of cooperation in theological education. Metropolitan Antony of Borispol told the guest that the Kiev theological schools are developing cooperation with foreign educational institutions, and expressed his hope that an agreement on cooperation will be signed with faculties of theology of Bulgarian universities in the near future.

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.
