His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and all Russia sent the following greeting to the Primate of the Serbian Orthodox Church with the anniversary of his enthronement:

His Holiness Irinej

Archbishop of Peć

Metropolitan of Belgrade-Karlovci

Serbian Patriarch

Your Holiness,

beloved Brother and Concelebrant at God’s Altar:

I wholeheartedly greet you with the seventh anniversary of your enthronement.

As you labour at the See of archbishops of Peć, metropolitans of Belgrade-Karlovci and Serbian Patriarchs, you have invisible help of prayers of the assembly of princes and saints, venerable fathers, martyrs and confessors of the fathers’ faith, who are sons of the Serbian people and adornment of the whole Church of Christ.

The Russian Orthodox Church prays for ‘time of refreshing to come from the presence of the Lord’ (Acts 3:20) to the successors of their deeds who are carrying the cross of suffering for Holy Orthodoxy in Kosovo and Metohia.

On this day so solemn for Your Holiness I wish you spiritual joy and good health for many good years of your Patriarchal ministry.

With invariable brotherly love in the Lord,



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.
