Orthodox Believers Commemorate St Sergius of Radonezh

admin | 19 July 2012

Russian Orthodox believers are commemorating Saint Sergius of Radonezh, one of the Russian Orthodox Church’s most highly venerated saints.

On Wednesday, the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill is to conduct a service in the Assumption Cathedral of the Holy Trinity-St. Sergius Lavra, 70 km north from Moscow.

Sergius was a spiritual leader and monastic reformer in medieval Russia. He worked miracles, had a gift of prophecy and could cure people from diseases.

His relics were uncovered on July 18, 1422 and were kept in a wooden Trinity church. Later they were carried to the stone cathedral which was built on that place.

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.
