At the invitation of His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon attended a meeting with His Grace Bishop Metodije of Diokleia, Vicar of Metropolitan Amfilohije of Montenegro.

During the meeting, Metropolitan Tikhon had the opportunity to hear about the situation of the Orthodox Church in Montenegro and to personally express the support of the Orthodox Church in America for His Holiness Patriarch Irinej and the Metropolis of Montenegro of the Serbian Orthodox Church.

Also in attendance at the meeting were His Grace Bishop Irinej of the Serbian Diocese of Eastern America, Archpriest Alexander Rentel, Chancellor of the Orthodox Church in America, Archpriest Mihaelo Backovich from the Serbian Orthodox Church in Montenegro and Priest Nicholas Kazarian, Ecumenical Affairs Officer of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese.

On January 14, 2020 Metropolitan Tikhon addressed a letter of support to Patriarch Irinej. In that letter, Metropolitan Tikhon said, “We wish to make it clear to you and your beloved flock that the Orthodox Church in America prays for, supports, and maintains communion with the Metropolis of Montenegro of the Serbian Orthodox Church, and that the Orthodox Church in America does not recognize as canonical the so-called “Montenegrin Orthodox Church” nor its “clergy” headed by the defrocked Miraš Dedeić.”

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.

Dear Friends,

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

Please assist us in the continuation of our work.
