In the year we have just departed, we encountered numerous and arduous trials, testing, among other things, people’s faith.
Natural disasters and isolated incidents that have affected everyone and are of concern for future generations.
Two major wars, in Ukraine and Gaza, are still ongoing and, without any doubt, will last for some time to come.
In Orthodoxy we see that church leaders cannot contribute to reconciliation and align with camps, either governmental, political, business. Let us hope that the new year will give them time to delve deeper into the essence and focus less on the ephemeral and human aspects.
For yet another year, Orthodox Times diligently monitored and documented the events significant to the church, and beyond, throughout 2023.
With an objective perspective coupled with an unwavering willingness to express opinions from the outset, Orthodox Times delivers the facts and news directly and validly.
The administration, alongside all those who work to accurately convey to you the events surrounding us – journalists, translators, and administrative staff – are committed that in 2024 we will be even more direct, consistently valid, and undoubtedly with a more increased critical approach.
We wish you all a Happy New Year. May 2024 be blessed and bright.
