The Mystagogy Resource Center is currently in a fundraising campaign to continue and expand its service. Your financial support is very much appreciated. Read more about it here. Whatever contribution you make, will be matched by an anonymous supporter, thus doubling your gift.

In an effort to reach our financial goal of $10,000 we will be absent from posting and working behind the scenes until the goal is met.

Currently, as of Thursday 26 May 2016 at 9:00am est., we are at 53% of our goal.

I hope you will help us reach our goal quickly. If everyone that visited this site today contributed just a few dollars, the goal would be reached in a matter of hours. Thank you!

Archbishop Ieronymos: "I Get Payed 2300 Euros Per Month"

"I get paid by the state with the amount of 2,300 euros per month. It is not enough for me, but I try to do what my grandmother told me, that in life I should stretch my legs to where I am able", says Archbishop Ieronymos in an interview with the program 'Πρωταγωνιστές'.

Stavros Theodorakis met His Beatitude Ieronymos II and discussed with him everything that has evolved over the past two years in which he is the head of the Greek Church.

Especially on the issue of taxation of the church and church property Ieronymos gives all the answers for the first time.

The cameras of the program followed the Archbishop of Athens for two 24-hour periods, at home, at church, on the streets of Athens and of course in his office.

Among the topics of discussion are: The separation of Church and State, his relations with the Ecumenical Patriarch and the Prime Minister, religious symbols in public places, the citizenship of immigrants, the name of FYROM, the European course of Turkey, the scandal surrounding Vatopaidi Monastery, the mosque in Athens, and his childhood.

This is extremely interesting interview and will be screened on the evening of Palm Sunday March 28, 2010 at 22.50 on MEGA.
