“This pain in my heart whenever I think of the priests performing worship behind closed doors and today deprived of material support. But as faith without love does not bring any benefit, and Christian compassion must have tangible results. So I turned to the people who are wealthy and loyal to the Church with the humble request to provide financial support to our clergy,” – said Kirill.
