The head of the Russian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Kirill, has prayed in front of the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
His tour of Latin America began last week, with a historic meeting with Pope Francis in Cuba.
He arrived in Brazil after visiting Paraguay and a Russian scientific base in the Antarctica.
From Rio, he travelled to Sao Paulo and held mass at a Russian Orthodox church, in the last stop of his visit.
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 -
Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. 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.
