His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia has extended condolences to the King of Saudi Arabia Salman bin-Abdulaziz Saud over the tragedy in Mecca in which over one hundred people were killed:
Please accept my profound condolences over the tragedy caused by a crane collapsing on the Grand Mosque.
The Russian Orthodox Church shares the grief of those who have lost their relatives and friends. Kindly convey them my words of support and wishes of fortitude and courage.
With sincere condolences,
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 -
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.
