On April 16, when the feast is celebrated, the cake weighing one ton will be delivered to Yakutsk supermarket so that everyone could taste it, press service of the local diocese told Interfax-Religion on Friday.

The Yakutsk Diocese held the same action last Easter: together with businessmen they baked a cake using 200 kilos of best wheat and 900 eggs.

The cake was decorated with a copy of the Transfiguration Cathedral from mastic with 40 kilos of candied fruit and raisins. The cake was 1,5 meter high and weighed over 400 kilos.

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.
