Many thanks to all those who sponsor and support the Mystagogy Resource Center; your positive feedback and generosity through financial gifts have been encouraging. Without this support, I would not be able to devote the time I need to produce all that you will see moving forward. Since I am now working by the hour and my time is more limited, I need to figure things out how to best use my time for your benefit, and will then give a progress report some time in the spring. Till then, I encourage all those who do not yet financially support this ministry - yet find some benefit from it - to likewise do so in order that it may continue to be helpful to you and countless others. See links at the bottom of this page to submit your contribution.

This news comes following the uprising of various Orthodox against the recent meeting between Orthodox and Catholics in Paphos of Cyprus. The Holy Synod of the Church of Cyprus, who met on November 4 and 5, has decided to punish the actions of the monastic and clerical protestors of the recent Dialogue which occurred in Paphos. Specifically the monks of the Holy Monastery of Stavrovouniou were penalized for two months to abstain from Holy Communion; while the clergy of the Holy Metropolis of Trimithountos have been penalized with the withholding of one months salary as well as a rebuke for their rebellion.
