Your Excellency

Dear Mr. President,

1375975383-600x340-600x340Kindly accept my profound condolences over the destructive earthquake in Mexico as a result of which many people have been killed, injured or left without a roof.

In this time of trial for your country, kindly convey my words of support to relatives and loved ones of the victims and wishes of a speedy recovery to the injured and fortitude to all those who have been affected by disaster.

I pray to Merciful God that those who suffer may be healed and those who mourn may find consolation and that the Mexican people may be granted courage and endurance in withstanding the trial fallen to their lot.

With profound compassion,

+ Kirill

Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia

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.
