They had a warm talk on numerous issues of concern to both the Russian Orthodox Church and the Roman Catholic Church.

The talk concerned the progress of the Orthodox-Catholic dialogue, the state of bilateral relations and existing difficulties, and problems of inter-Christian dialogue at the present stage. It was noted that cooperation between the Russian Orthodox Church and the Roman Catholic Church in the field of education and students’ exchange was one of the promising areas in the development of Orthodox-Catholic relations.

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.
