Your Excellency, Dear Mr. President,

1_venzel-170x114The news of the terrorist attack in Boston and the factory explosion in the town of West, Texas, has resonated in my heart with deep grief. As a result of these tragedies, many people have been killed or injured. On behalf of the Russian Orthodox Church, I express my sincere condolences to all the American people.

I pray to the merciful Lord to give a speedy recovery to those injured and to grant consolation, courage and fortitude to their families and to the families of the dead. May the Saviour of the world help those who are working to overcome the consequences of the tragedies.

With 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 -,, 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.
