Abstract
The article discusses the peculiarities of interaction between the mass media and the Russian Orthodox Church. It is noted that there is a certain commonality of approaches and interests in the issues of education and training. Attention is drawn to the problems of modern social consciousness, in which the ideas of consumerism, nihilism, egoism, lack of spirituality, pseudo-culture, militant religious fanaticism plays a negative role. Mass media are considered as a generator of ideas of patriotism and tolerance, which contribute to the revival of national identity. They emphasize the positive activities of the media, aimed at criticizing negative quasi-scientific thinking, immorality, vice, priority of hedonistic values. The article presents the facts that are condemned by both the Orthodox Church and the Russian media. It is noted that the Church, in the institutional aspect, enters into interaction not only with the state, but also with numerous public organizations, and this important circumstance introduces it into the field of law. The state of modern society cannot be called sustainable neither in the worldview, nor in the moral sense; therefore, productive interaction between the media and the Church makes it possible to direct civil society to solve moral problems, among which an important place is occupied by the social justice and national interests of the country.
