Dear Readers: A long time supporter of the Mystagogy Resource Center has informed me that they would like to donate $3000 to help me continue the work of this ministry, but they will only do it as a matching donation, which means that this generous donation will only be made after you help me raise a total of $3000. If you can help make this happen, it will be greatly appreciated and it would be greatly helpful to me, as I have not done a fundraiser this year. If you enjoy the work done here and want to see more of it, please make whatever contribution you can through the DONATE link below. Thank you!
(Total So Far - Day 4: $1750)

The Crooked Priest (A Joke)

Dog Funeral

Mitsos lived above his restaurant with only his beloved pet dog called Stavros for company.

One day Stavros the dog died and Mitsos went to his local priest and asked, "Father, my dog Stavros died. Could you do a Trisagion for the poor animal, he was like a son to me?"

Father Nikos shook his head, "I'm afraid not; we cannot have services for an animal in the church. But, there's an English church on the next block. God knows what they believe in. Maybe they'll do something for your dog?"

Mitsos said, "I'll go right away Father. Do you think $5,000 is enough to donate to them for the service?"

Father Nikos exclaimed, "Kyrie Eleison! Vre Mitsos, why didn't you tell me the dog was Greek Orthodox?"
