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.

A Miracle of Saint Nektarios in Jordan


Romfea.gr has reported news from Metropolitan Benedict of Philadelphia that a three month old boy was healed by St. Nektarios in Jordan.

The three month old boy was very sick with a collapsed lung and had entered into intensive care to be supported with oxygen. The parents were informed by doctors that there was no hope for their son.

When the Metropolitan heard of this, he sent a priest named Fr. Nektarios to visit the boy, as well as all the sick of the hospital, every Saturday. To every sick person he would give the Holy Gospel, the life of St. Nektarios and oil from the vigil lamp of the Saint.

The Metropolitan had asked that the boy with the collapsed lung be specifically anointed with the oil from St. Nektarios, and the miracle was almost immediate! He was completely healed that day and the next day returned home with his parents in perfect health.

The boys parents, in gratitude to St. Nektarios, decided to name their child after his healer - St. Nektarios the Wonderworker.

Later the Metropolitan himself visited the family and gave them his blessing. Metropolitan Benedict has made the name of St. Nektarios famous in Jordan with the church built dedicated to him. Another recorded seven miracles attributed to St. Nektarios have also been performed in Jordan.
