Patriarch Kirill urges to redeem sins of revolution building up a just society

“From the events that happened 100 years ago we should make a very important conclusion. We should redeem our sins and sins of our predecessors with our virtue, we should build up a good and just society, we should overcome sin in our personal and social life. We should see the grief of those, who is sick, hungry, who is in prison or hospital,” the patriarch said after the liturgy he celebrated on Sunday in the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow.

According to him, if people’s life will focus on love, kindness, indulgence, “it will be our personal participation in redemption of our predecessors’ sins.”

“If, even living in conditions of prosperity, we won’t be able to do good things from our hearts, then we are not secured from trials in personal and public life as survival of human society is directly connected with doing the good things, the good keeps the world from breaking down and preserves human history from a terrific final,” the primate stressed urging to “build a civilization of spirit, not flesh.”

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.
