Address to the Orthodox Christian users of the Internet
- "That they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You;
that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You
sent Me." (John 17:21)
Brothers and sisters!
We kindly invite you to visit the biggest active directory of the
Orthodox Christian Internet resources «Orthodox Christianity.ru».
Our multi-lingual internet directory has been developing at a very
fast pace with new additions taking place constantly, thanks to God
and efforts of our volunteers from all around the World. We are glad
to inform you that many versions of our directory already exist
including Russian, English, Romanian, Serbian, French, German,
Polish, Bulgarian, Norwegian and Georgian ones containing more than
2700 annotated links to Orthodox Christian Internet sites. They are
classified according to more than 200 directory categories. The
directory has search and rating systems. The directory receives more
than 30000 visits monthly.
The directory founders and maintainers have no commercial, political
or any other mercenary aims in mind. The directory's main goals are
collect and categorize a maximum number of Orthodox Christian
Internet resources no matter what the site language(s) is;
to provide internet users with unrestricted access and easy to use
interface to the directory collection;
to create a common network of Orthodox Christian Internet resources
by the way of exchanging links/banners between Orthodox sites.
We strongly believe that fulfilling these tasks will serve for the
good of our Holy Orthodox Church and will be useful for all of us
authors or the readers alike. Achieving these goals will require
even more efforts, but with God's blessing this is possible if the
editors' work is supported by your prayers and active participation.
We kindly ask for help in expanding our directory. Please send us
links to the Orthodox Internet resources not already included in the
directory - web address, title and description, - for example:
title: Miriobiblos. Online library of the church of Greece
description: Online electronic library of orthodox texts in
English and many other languages. Library sections: Sacred Liturgy,
Spiritual Life, Saints, Monasticism, Patrology, Theology, History of
Church, Canon Law, Art, Philosophy, Sociology, Byzantine History,
Modern Greek History, Greek Literature, Christian Europe and others.
To check if the site is already in the directory please use our
search page http://www.orthodoxlinks.info/advanced.php with the
site's address as a search string. Please contact us if you are an
author of a similar Orthodox directory and are ready to share your
collection of links with us.
We will be thankful if you are able to help us with translations of
site descriptions present in the directory and with creation of new
language versions of the directory. At present we need you help
mostly with translations into Russian from English, Serbian,
Bulgarian, Greek, Spanish and Arabian languages and also with
translations from Russian and English into Georgian, Greek, Spanish,
Arabian, Finnish, Japanese and Chinese languages.
Please report any mistakes or inaccuracies in the workings of our
directory. We would also like to hear your ideas on its development.
May we ask you to inform your orthodox friends about our directory
and also to include the information on the directory in Orthodox
news reports, on your regional internet discussion boards, mailing
lists and echo-conferences (you can use the following text for this
purpose: http://www.orthodoxlinks.info/address.php ).
May we ask for your prayers for salvation and well-being of God's
