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 8: $2640)

Cypriot Greeks and Turks Honor the Apostle Andrew


Today, for the Feast of St. Andrew the Apostle, hundreds of Cypriot Greeks and Turks went to the Monastery of the Apostle Andrew to celebrate the Divine Liturgy with Bishop Christophoros of Karpasia. Turks also were in attendance out of veneration for the Apostle and seeking miraculous cures - something for which this Monastery is well known. One Turk was interviewed saying that he made a vow to the Apostle Andrew to heal his son. The Cypriot Greeks say that Turks come to the Monastery quite often because many miracles are acknowledged and sought by them.
