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 Saturday 28 May 2016 at 8:00am est., we are at 54% 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 Reception of Orthodox Hesychasm in Far Eastern Missions

"The Buddhists and Taoists for the first time are hearing about noetic prayer and the mysticism of Orthodoxy, as something higher than their own monasticism, because they know Christianity primarily from Protestants, who do not teach such things. They asked my permission to translate the book A Night In The Desert Of The Holy Mountain and The Way Of A Pilgrim, which I granted."

- This quote is from a letter from Fr. Jonah, an Orthodox missionary in Taiwan, in the magazine Saint Kosmas Aitolos (2001 issue 45).
