Moscow, June 13, Interfax – Orthodox believers of Hong Kong each Tuesday pray so that the Mother of God will bless and protect the Church in China.

“Believers from Russia also join us. Please, send the names of your relatives and friends for prayers before the Hong Kong icon of the Mother of God,” rector of Sts Peter and Paul Church Archpriest Dionisy Pozdnyaev wrote in a social net.

In spite of revival of Orthodoxy in China, de jure Orthodox mission in China does not exist, for historical reasons the system of Orthodox parishes was destroyed: there is no Orthodox education, people lack serious sources of gaining spiritual experience and liturgical life, Father Dionisy earlier wrote in missionary notes.

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.
