Kosovo: Orthodox Church In Drsnik Desecrated

The Orthodox Church was broken into, money from it stolen and its icons vandalized yesterday morning, and Minister Jevtic urged Kosovo authorities to immediately react, arrest and punish the perpetrators.

Jevtic stressed that the attack on the Church of St. Petka was an attack on all Serb returnees in the Klina municipality and called for greater respect for and better protection of all religious sites.

Unfortunately, such incidents have been occurring before, Jevtic said in a written statement, urging the authorities to help prevent any similar incidents from happening in the future by making known the names of the vandals responsible.

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.
