His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia’s message of greeting to participants in the XIV Assembly of the Russki Mir Foundation
To organizers, participants and guests of the XIV Assembly of the Russki Mir Foundation
For the last months, humanity has had to learn to live in a new reality linked with the spread of the coronavirus infection. Restrictions that we all have to observe today to prevent a growth of morbidity have shown us how fragile our world is and how valuable is our communication face to face and the opportunity for us to meet with our kin and loved people.
At the same time, the pandemic has compelled us to master profoundly the modern means of communication, to develop further various cultural projects and educational work in the network format.
It is gratifying that in this very difficult year the Russki Mir Assembly has not been cancelled. And you, its participants, will discuss topical tasks to preserve the values of our culture, to save the classical Russian language when applied to the peculiarities of the virtual space.
I wish you spiritual and physical strength and fruitful work.
Invoking God’s blessing upon you,
Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia
