Bucharest - Too busy to get to church to pray?

A Romanian company is offering believers an online service enabling them to send prayers to priests who will read them out during church services.

Romanian Orthodox Christians customarily write down prayers in church, which are then given to priests who read them out for a small fee. The prayers are traditionally for health, good exam results, happy marriages, and the forgiveness of sins.

Orthodox believers can now pay €1 ($1.44) per day or €24 ($34) online per month for their prayer to be read. Currently, just four churches are enlisted on the site. reported on Tuesday that the Romanian Orthodox church, to which more than 85% of Romanians belong, did not approve the move, warning it could lead to laziness.

    The lord must be the richest dude in the world. All his herdsmen are always looking for money from their sheep. Sheep are pretty dumb.
