Russian President Vladimir Putin congratulated Orthodox Christians and all Russians on Pascha.

The great holiday of Pascha symbolises the triumph of life, good and love, and has immense moral significance. It evokes faith, hope and inspires people to do good and help the neighbour. It brings people together around spiritual values and ideals.

These days of spring are filled with joy and help us seize the importance of our long-standing traditions and customs. It is with satisfaction that I note the tireless efforts by the Russian Orthodox Church to strengthen social harmony, support the institution of family and to educate the younger generation, as well as its contribution toward overcoming pressing social challenges.

The Russian Orthodox Church should be praised for its extensive and multi-faceted work,” congratulation of the Head of State claims.

Vladimir Putin attended the night Paschal service at the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour. Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia led the service. According to tradition, the President and the Patriarch each gave the other a Paschal present.

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.
