Students urged to renounce revolution, embrace Christianity

admin | 25 January 2013

Patriarch Kirill has urged Russian students to make Christian martyrs, not revolutionaries, their cherished role models.

Speaking after a service at Moscow University’s St Tatyana’s church on the University’s 257th anniversary Wednesday, he cited instances in Russian and European history in which attempts to bring about justice by force resulted in tyranny and uncontrolled bloodshed.

His Holiness advised the students to refer to the Holy Scripture for guidelines on learning and living.

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.
