Republican Vice Presidential Nominee Mike Pence Visits Archbishop Demetrios

The two leaders had a very informative discussion. The rebuilding of Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church and National Shrine at the World Trade Center, which is now in progress, was part of the discussion. Saint Nicholas was the only house of worship destroyed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Also discussed was the importance of the institution of family.

Governor Pence was accompanied by his wife Karen and his daughter Charlotte. Archbishop Demetrios presented the Governor with two books, the first, In the World, Yet Not of the World: Social and Global Initiatives of Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, and the second, Call to Faith, authored by His Eminence, in which the Archbishop, on the request of Governor Pence, inscribed a dedication.

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.
