June 6, 2011

“The life of a child is far more valuable than the construction of a new cathedral.” So says Russian Orthodox Bishop Panteleymon in this powerful new video entitled: “The Gift of Heaven.”

The video relates the work of the the First International Festival of Social Technologies “PRO-LIFE — 2010.” It was held in the Salut Hotel in Moscow, Russia on July 23-24, 2010 and gathered representatives of pro-life organizations and activists from 65 cities of Russia, Ukraine and Belorussia as well as guests from non-CIS countries. The most significant results of the festival included, among others:
– activation of charity support for pregnant women and families with children in the Russian Orthodox Church as an instrument of induced abortion prevention,- engagement of major charity funds in funding this direction.
