His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia congratulated His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon of All America and Canada on his Name’s Day. The message reads as follows:


Your Beatitude,

Beloved in the Lord Brother and Concelebrant at God’s Altar:

Please accept my heartfelt greetings on the occasion of your Name’s Day.

Looking at the deeds of St. Tikhon the Patriarch of All Russia who stood at the helm of the Russian Church in times of trying ordeals and tribulations, you carry the heavy cross of Primatial ministry, hopeful of the Creator’s mercy, strengthening Orthodoxy on the continent of North America and zealously contending for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints (Jude 1:3).

I prayerfully wish to Your Beatitude good health, peace, spiritual joy and bountiful help from the Lord in your Primatial labours for many and good years.

With brotherly love in Christ Jesus,

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.

Dear Friends,

Our website exists owing to your generous assistance, thanks to the funds donated by our beloved readers.

Please assist us in the continuation of our work.
