Saint Paisios lived most of his life in Konitsa and became a monk in the Holy Monastery of Panagia in Stomion.

The shooting in Konitsa has already started, Orthodox Times reports.

It is a production of a large company in the film industry and the shooting takes place in various locations in the area, “optimizing the advantages offered by the area and promoting the incomparable natural beauty of the place, with leading Greek actors and with the participation of several of our fellow citizens,” as reported in an announcement of the Municipality of Konitsa.

From the first contact it had with the production team a few months ago, the municipal authorities embraced the project and provided all its assistance to the production in order to have a successful outcome, as reported in its announcement.

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.
