Primate of the Russian Church Answers Questions from Polish Journalists

admin | 16 August 2012

On August 14, 2012, in anticipation of his visit to Poland on Thursday, His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia met with Polish mass media correspondents.  

In his talk with the journalists, His Holiness pointed to the importance of his forthcoming visit to the Polish Orthodox Church for further development of relations between fraternal Local Churches.  

Among the issues highlighted in the interview were Orthodox-Catholic dialogue and protection of traditional Christian values and culture in Europe today, especially in the light of a Joint Message to the Peoples of Russia and Poland to be signed during His Holiness’s visit. 

The Primate of the Russian Church also shared his vision of the state of church-society and church-state relations in today’s 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.
