International procession with the cross arrived in Lutsk, Ukraine

The traditional international procession with the cross arrived in Lutsk, Volyn region, Ukraine, on July 30. The journey begins in Poland, goes through Belarus to Ukraine and ends at Pochaev Lavra of the Holy Assumption. Taking part in it are Poles, Byelorussians, Ukrainians, Hungarians, Georgians, Italians, Russians and other Orthodox Christians.



Bishop Nafanail of Volyn and Lutsk greeted them and invited to dinner at the Volyn theological seminary.

In the morning of July 31 the Divine Liturgy was celebrated at the Cathedral of the Intercession, and the pilgrims proceeded to the Ternopol diocese. The journey will end at the Pochaev Lavra on August 5, the feast day of the Pochaev icon of the Mother of God, the site of the Volyn diocese reports.

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.

Dear Friends,

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