Submit Your Questions About Lent to Fr. Alexander Iliashenko!

admin | 06 April 2013

Dear Readers of Pravmir,

You are cordially invited to submit your questions about Great Lent to Archpriest Alexander Iliashenko!

Fr. Alexander, Rector of the Church of the All-Merciful Savior in Moscow, is the founder and chairman of the board of Pravmir. A graduate of both the Moscow Aviation University and St. Tikhon’s Orthodox University, he was ordained to the priesthood in 1995. He and his wife (who is the granddaughter of the Hieromarty Vladimir Ambartsumov, +1937) have twelve children and thirty grandchildren.

Many of Fr. Alexander’s articles have appeared on our site, including our most popular post ever, Ten Important Things To Do Before the End of Lent.

Questions can be submitted by email to this address: pravmirmanager (at) (please include the words “Ask Fr. Alexander” in the subject line). A limited number of questions will be submitted to Fr. Alexander, whose answers will be posted on this site.

For purposes of privacy, only first names will be used when conveying questions to Fr. Alexander and posting his replies online.

Questions will be accepted until April 10, the midpoint of the Fast.

In Christ,

The Editors of Pravmir.

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.
