On February 10, 2015, with the blessing of His Holiness Patriarch Irenaeus of Serbia, Bishop Anthony of Moravici, official representative of the Serbian Orthodox Church to the Moscow Patriarchate, visited the Novodevichy Convent of the Resurrection in St Petersburg to meet with Archbishop Jovan of Ohrid who is undertaking a medical treatment in the city.

On behalf of the Primate of the Serbian Church, Bishop Anthony warmly greeted Archbishop Jovan, congratulating him on his release from prison and wishing him a good stay in St Petersburg and recovery.

Participating in the meeting were Sister Sofia (Silina), abbess of the convent, and Father Naum (Petkovsky) of the Valamo Monastery of the Transfiguration.

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.
