Patriarch Irinej of the Serbian Orthodox Church on Tuesday urged all former residents of Kosovo-Metohija to return to their homes in the province.

“We know that they live in difficult circumstances – the Lord will give them the strength to endure – I call on all former residents of Kosovo-Metohija to return to their homes, their temples and cemeteries to protect and preserve what they had received from their ancestors,” Patriarch Irinej said.

After a liturgy marking the day of the ktetor of the Visoki Decani monastery, the patriarch said that “any message is weak compared to the message of this sacred site and (its ktetor) the Holy King Stefan Decanski.”

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.
