Hungary has become the first country whose government is opening a special office tending to Christians persecuted in the Middle East and on European territory, reported Front Page Magazine.

“Today, Christianity has turned into the mostpersecuted religion; out of five people killed for religious reasons, four are Christians. In 81 countries all over the world, Christians are being persecuted, while 200 million Christians live in regions in which they are being discriminated against. Millions of Christian lives are threatened by followers of radical religious ideologies,” stated HungarianMinister of Human Capacities Zoltán Balog.

The actions of Budapest came after the right-wing government of PM Viktor Orbancriticised the EU, underlining that Brussels should focus on helping Christians before helping millions of Muslims settle in Europe.

“We have to help Christians first,” stated Viktor Orban.

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 -,, and 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.
