metanthony.lgSaturday, August 10, will mark the 77th anniversary of the repose of His Beatitude, the ever-memorable Metropolitan Anthony (Khrapovitsky), first of the First Hierarchs of the Russian Church Abroad. Thanks to Metropolitan Anthony’s struggles, the Church Abroad was able to successfully navigate the most tumultuous years after her founding. We earnestly ask that all clergy commemorate the Most Blessed Metropolitan Anthony at the divine services this weekend, as well as the murdered Archpriest Pavel (Paul) Adelgeim, who was stabbed to death on August 5. August 13 marks his ninth day.

May the Lord God grant rest to the bright souls of the ever-memorable Most Blessed Metropolitan Anthony and Archpriest Pavel!

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.
