His Holiness Patriarch Kirill sends condolences over the death of people in Sichuan Province in China

His Excellency Mr. XI JINPING


People’s Republic of China

Your Excellency,

I was deeply grieved to learn about the landslide in the Sichuan Province that had claimed the lives of dozens of people. Please accept my profound condolences.



I kindly ask you to convey to the relatives and friends of the victims of this natural disaster and to all the people of China my words of support and wishes of courage and fortitude in the face of this ordeal.

With deep condolences,



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.
