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 7:00pm 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!

The Theotokos Areovindos (Fire-Appearing)

The Theotokos Areovindos icon is of unknown origin. It is unusual in that the Mother of God is depicted alone, without the Christ Child. Her head is slightly inclined to the left, framed by a bright red maphorion, which inspired the name "Areovindos" or "Fire-appearing". The feast is celebrated on February 10th.
