On June 6, 2013, His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia, who is on a pilgrimage to Holy Mount Athos, visited the monasteries of Zograf, Hilandar, and the Xilourgou and St. Andrew’s hermitages. On his way to the St. Panteleimon monastery, the Primate of the Russian Orthodox Church and his party visited the Old Russia hermitage.

At the place where the altar of the Church of St. Panteleimon used to stand, His Holiness read a Prayer before Every Good Deed.

Then His Holiness and Mr. A. Beglov, Presidential Envoy in the Russian Federation Central Federal Region, saw the restoration work in the monastery buildings and visited the church of St. Andrew. In the church, which is still to undergo interior finish, the troparion to the Holy Protomartyr and Healer Panteleimon was sung.


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.
