Many many thanks to all those who contributed to match a generous $3000 donation from an anonymous donor. The goal was attained this past weekend. It is because of people like you that the Mystagogy Resource Center can continue to offer unique material to all for free on a daily basis that I hope people find beneficial. For those who still wish to contribute, please do so, with much gratitude in return. God bless you all!

38 Year Old Hindu Converts to Orthodoxy

A 38 year old Hindu man was baptized Orthodox in a church outside Halkida, Greece. It was a decision he came to on his own after visiting various holy shrines in Greece, especially in Tinos which he visited many times. His impression of Orthodoxy was that it was a "living faith" and it thus became his dream to be baptized. His Christian name is Menas. Following his baptism, a celebration was thrown for him at a local tavern.
