HOLY LAND: November 12, 2012

On Thursday, November 8, 2012, Hieromonk Roman (Krassovsky), recently appointed Acting Chief of the Russian Ecclesiastical Mission in Jerusalem of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, accompanied His Eminence Archbishop Mark of Berlin and Germany, Overseer of the REM, on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem.

Despite the fact that Fr Roman’s arrival coincided with the first visit to the Jerusalem Patriarchate of His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia, he already managed to meet with the clergymen, abbesses and monastics of the convents in Gethsemane and the Mt of Olives, and discuss ongoing affairs of the Mission. He also participated in divine services and other events connected with the pilgrimage to the Holy Land of the Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church.

Archbishop Mark introduced Fr Roman to His All Holiness Patriarch Theophilos III of Jerusalem and All Palestine, who blessed Fr Roman’s new obedience.

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.
