His Holiness Patriarch Kirill meets with students of advanced course for newly-installed bishops of Russian Orthodox Church

The course on ‘Topical Issues of Church-State Relations,’ organized by the Ss Cyril and Methodius Theological Institute for Post-Graduate Studies, is being held for the fourth time.

Taking part in the meeting were also Metropolitan Varsonofy of St. Petersburg and Ladoga, chancellor of the Moscow Patriarchate, and Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk, chairman of the Department for External Church Relations of the Moscow Patriarchate.

Before the meeting Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk presented His Holiness Patriarch Kirill with an engraving ‘St Cyril’s Praying for the Slavs’ made in 1869 to mark the thousandth anniversary of the blessed demise of St Cyril, Equal-to-the-Apostles, Teacher of the Slavs.

The participants in the meeting discussed various aspects of the life of the dioceses, in particular, the relationships between the Church and secular authorities in the regions.

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.

Dear Friends,

Our website exists owing to your generous assistance, thanks to the funds donated by our beloved readers.

Please assist us in the continuation of our work.
